  • 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

IU Question, don't know whether true or not!


I'm currently at 90%, my representative recommended I apply for IU, for increase in service-connected disabilities, so I did, I recently had all of my C&P exams, and of course the examiner did not put down all of the correct medical info and issues that were in my medical files that were clearly available, and could have a impact in the raters decision.

As I looked over the C&P exams, I see the errors, and important medical symptoms that were left out. I informed my representative, about the C&P exam, and asked, should we get an medical opinion to correct these errors. My representative told me, the VA is not going to respond to a IMO/IME for a C&P exam that you disagree with, on an initial filed claim for IU, let's just wait and file a NOD.   (and this is in the early stage of this claim)

I have never heard of anything like that, I've always filed an IMO/Nexus, if the C&P examiner failed, to tell the whole truth or left out important medical issues. Because all of the medical evidence is clearly in my medical records. Has anybody else ever heard of this?

This was an IU FDC correct? Have you received the Denial? You could actually get an Award, Denial or Reduction, all (3) are possible everytime you file a Claim.

How about posting redacted copies of the DBQs and point out what you believe to be errors?

Any time a Vet files a New Claim, the VA is required to look at it as a claim for an increase of all current SC's.

What are your current SCs. What conditions were the C & P's for?

yes, PTSD. I have not received a decision, we just recently filed the claim for IU, we just received a copy of the C&P exam, and I was very disappointed. Because just looking it over, I can see all of the symptoms that were left off, and I truly believe, it is not going to be granted an increase.

    • 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:
