  • 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

I'm not sure I'm in the right place but I'm looking for all the help I can. My husband, after 9 years, has decided he needs more help than he's getting. I'm proud of him for making this decision. My questions are, what are good military only ptsd programs? He will be inpatient or do a retreat and doesn't want to leave our home state of NC. I've googled and can't find anything good. Also, does his benefit pay get reduced? He is 100% p&t for tbi/ptsd. Last question is since I'm his caregiver and he will be going away for a month or so, will my caregiver pay be reduced or d/c until he is back? 

I greatly appreciate all the help!

Also I googled and pasted the google search results in a MOD topic today because I could not find your post.

It can be narrowed down to NC but it appears you have already done that.

My husband was in the 21 day Inhouse. This is not a lockdown. They lock the 'world' out.Nam vets know what I mean.

Prior to that he had a hospitalization in 6 P ( that was a VA  lock down ward. which is BS because I went there many times just to visit any vet there...it wasn';t as dangerous as the VA rumors said it was.) The inhouse was the best PTSD treatment he had gotten at that point - diagnosed in 1984 30% SC PTSD, excellent except  for the Vet Center he attended and where I met him in the Combat  PTSD group.

It was at Buffalo NY VAMC.(The inhouse program) 

I was a Lyons NJ  VA vet center Volunteer, (that is where my FBI stuff went but the vet center was in Trenton NJ.

Were you asking because of a friend who is a relative of a NYer who asked me for contact info and our hadit web addy? The vet they were asking for is in NC. 

I hope I saved the email linkls I gave them but wanted them to come here too.

His comp will stay the same. In many cases, they award not only the temp comp at 100% for the 21 day inhouse, unless the vet already gets it ,  but also the records can be used for an increase in some cases.. I dont remember how I got my husband's records from the inhouse program ....they were not part of his C file or VA med recs they sent to me after he died. I dont think they even used them for his posthumous SC 100%  P & T award.

I have no idea on the caretaker payments. There should be somewhere at the VA web site info about that...we have two or three wives on the caretaker program Maybe the search feature can bring up their posts.

    • 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.
