  • 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

Submitting a DBQ for increase

Question

When I submit my DBQ for an increase on an already SC'd condition and include diagnostic testing and diagnostic imaging to back up the reason for the increase, do I need to send all of my records from that private docs office? If I don't send all my records, will the rater request all my records anyway? I just don't want to slow my claim down or send useless info if this is not even going to come into play for the increase. I've been told just send enough info to help the rater make a decision on the claim, and not to over do it and piss the rater off, or make it more difficult for the rater and cause them to accidentally misplace info. Thanks

My plan is to submit my DBQ, which is favorable to me, and my testing to include ENG/VNG which has gotten much worse since 2015, my audiogram( also worse) and a CT and MRI of my head, brain, and IAC to rule out any central issues. Just went to appointment on Thursday of last week and he said every symptom I have is related to menieres, no central issues involved. My hearing test shows classic menieres with sensioneural left hearing loss in low frequencies. Just wonder if this will be enough to rate, or if they want my entire medical record from my private doc.

Submit the DBQ w/records to document treatment history by non VA MD. This is vital info needed to determine the condition rating.
Don't be surprised if they still send you to do a C&P exam, so make sure you take the records to that evaluation also. Include a statement from you to ask for increase, document reasons, quote the CFR that you think allows for the increase as well. Don't get all doctory with them in the statement, lay verbiage is all you want to use, let the Dr do the fancy stuff.  Just tell it like you understand it in basic terms.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
