  • 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

Question

I'm awaiting now to schedule two C&Ps one for a skull fracture where the first doctor opined 7 years ago that the doctors from my sTBI where incorrectly dx with this because they could second guess not one but about 6 or 7 other doctors from my from my intial injury and the months that followed with rehab. It's all Bs that made me wait years to get what I should have originally have gotten 7 years ago. They are now scheduling my exam for my DVT since I was just at the doctor two months ago they wanted to check the severity. Both of these issues were just for service connection so I hope that's a good sign. Then I had two for july 6th but the provider canceled and rescheduled on the 20th of July for increases for PTSD and my TBI review since the Chronic AD doctor separated my symptoms now they want to look at the other two again. I really don't care I'm canceling I'm not going to give them anything they just made me Permanent and Total with that exam in the decision so my opinion there is no reason to waste my time driving 2 hours for nothing to gain im already 100 p and T.

Just from the appeals but my attorney want me to write a letter to withdraw like I said, but still haven't spoke to him just his secretary he's been in court all last week. I'm still curious if he struck a deal.

Sounds like he's dodging you. "In Court all Week long," really? Court doesn't start till 9 am and is done by 3 pm. He doesn't have access to a Cell or Email, please.

Have you sent him an Email regarding his recent Legal Advice? When he told you to withdraw your Appeals, did he articulate his reasoning for the Withdrawals?

I didn't ask at first that's how i feel now if he doesn't respond soon I will be going to my 3 different C & Ps. He has nothing to do with my new claim so when he asked me to close it I should have asked he just said you know you can only get one rating and when the doctor seperated the symptoms that's when my PTSD and my new TBI review was ordered by the VA. At the same time I was just found Permanent and Total for both the PTSD and TBI residuals which are lumped together. I don't know if he thinks. If they are seperated that could void the P and T based on the one rating. I am just worried about losing it since my wife and kids all have VAchamp now and DEA benefits.

Was "No Future Exams Scheduled," noted on your recent (Date?) IU Award Letter?  What SC's are listed as the Nexus for your IU Rating in the Award Letter?

Are you 55+? When was your TBI sustained?

A friend age 72, IU T & P (NFES) since early 2015 due primarily to his PTSD, filed an FDC for A & A in early 16. The Denial Letter indicated that a Review of his VMC Med Recs resulted in a determination that his PTSD (SC 70% 2011) had improved from 70% to 50% SC.  The Denial Letter also stated that his IU Award would continue.

    • 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.
