  • 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

PTSD/MST & CRSC?

Question

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:

https://www.dfas.mil/retiredmilitary/disability/comparison.html

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.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
