  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

C&P seperation

Question

So should have guessed instead of seperating the issues like the doctor opined they are requesting another exam until the doctor gives something in their favor I'm sure. I called Peggy she said they are requesting another TBI review I said I just had one in December when they granted me IU he opined that i had not mental issues related to my TBI not to mention they made me Permanent and Total for my TBI residual with no future exams. I gues C&Ps for related to other claims aren't considered for my TBI?

Well, I dont know what your C and P exam is for, whether its for TBI and/or other conditions. You can call em and ask them, point blank, "What is this C and P exam for?"

Remember, if you are already 100 percent, and you had applied for more benefits previously, you can withdraw your application and you can tell your c and p examiner that you have no longer applied for that benefit, if it wont improve your disabity rating.  If you get SMC S, then you may be as high as you can get, unless you can get Aid and Attendance (SMC L), SMC K(s) (for loss of use), or something like that.  

Now, if its a "reduction" exam, you have to attend or you could be reduced.  You dont want to be skipping a reduction exam.  Its also POSSIBLE you are not P and T, but I would think that you are or else they would not have awarded IU.  Does your old decision say you are P and T and eligible for Chapter 35 (dependendents education)?

It's for my TBI residuals which was just made P and T. It's for my new claim for chronic adjustment disorder since the doctor separated my Mh issues and my TBI but SCed it. She said it could possibly just be a review of my last one in December. Which made me unemployability at the time if that's what they want to review that's fine since he stated I had no MH issues related to my TBI...all this anxiety had this bubble I feel I'm stuck in. I just got military ID for me and my wife and the decision for PT was mailed out today I just printed the update of ebenefits and that's all the base needed. Good to know I can do that but the first exam the doctor seperated my MH issues from my TBI and said it was SC can I withdraw it even though he SC the claim as a secondary issue? MAybe it will be a good thing the difference from the last time is I've been out of work this whole year. It's just seeing that a 2nd request was requested even though the one they sent me to was the 2nd request gets me all worked up after I just won the appeal for P and T she said it was a neurlogical review and was requested today she said call tomorrow see what happened. So much for. Sleeping...

Congratulations!!

You can withdraw the claim, whether or not its secondary, but that may not be in your best interest, given the hoopla about reducing benefits for TDIU Vets.  Did you get SMC S?  Your pending claim may also result in SMC S, Statuatory, if it results in 100 plus another seperate and distint 60 percent.

My attorney says my TBI was made P and T and I don't have to go her said they can review your one from 5 months ago or your neuropsych test from one month ago. But will that make it a denial automatically since I'm not going to a C&P even though the doctor said it was SC?

The VA is unpredictable. Do not miss the C&P, even if its a waste of time so you dont give them something to screw up.

If it would can bump you 60%+ for a separate condition, its worth going for, but if its only based on your P&T condition, if you withdraw, put it in writing and get a receipt for that to show the C&P examiner.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
