  • 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

Maybe I'm just confused on this but I wanted to see what could result from this instance. 

First off - I have yet to establish service connection for PTSD as of yet, however, that decision will be made in my favor, and very soon. There's not a speck of doubt there. The system has been trying to play catch-up now for several years, and we're almost to the end result now.

I was severed from the military, not retired. This is something that will be audited and corrected as well.

Bear in mind it took YEARS to get everything going up to this point, my fight is long from over.

Next -

I am a victim of MST, so let's get that out of the way. These attacks happened both in state, as well as deployed. Is there a possibility for CRSC to apply due to my deployment including Hazard pay?

Note -

I did not engage or become engaged by enemy contact at any points in my enlistment....just our enemies here at home.

My VA award was for PTSD-MST as well, my prayers. 

I served 22 years and receive Concurrent pay. ( as per Berta's article includes) - it is automatic once your retirement pay starts, it is a part of the questionnaire for survivors benefits et al.

F Y I ( this is if you don't fall under the combat...)

Sorry to cut in on the chat guys. I just wanted to ask, I am medically retired from the Navy for Crohns Disease, but in my signature you can see all of my Granted VA SCs. I applied for CRSC, when I was first retired in 2014, but I was new to all of this and did not know what I was doing. I currently do not receive my Navy Retired Pay. Can I apply for CRSC? and if so, How do you guys recommend I begin the process. Thanks in advance, and apologize for the interuption. God Bless

CRSC is explained in the link above your post here.

This link shows the difference between CRDP and CRSC:


CRSC has to be formally applied for, but the CRDP is supposed to be automatic.

There is discussion here if you search for CRSC CRDP.

    • 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:
