  • 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.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
