  • 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 have come to learn my medical evidence was withheld all my life due to "ANTICIPATION OF LITIGATION", from what I gather, and the VA used a couple FOIA EXCEPTIONS OR EXEMPTIONS in withholding them. I am asking why the VA would anticipate me suing them before I even got discharged? Just asking. Thanks

Vic,

I would be interested in where you found "ANTICIPATION OF LITIGATION". Not because I don't believe you, but, can it be a real thing in ones file at a medical instatution?

The reason I ask is my wife had some poor work done to her by a doctor and we are having a hard time finding some of the records, that in this case, would prove he was at fault, etc.

Again, while I believe you, I just can believe that is a thing.  But then again, nothing suprises me much anymore.

Thanks,

Hamslice

PS, how about a court order for your records...?

VR, the "I have come to learn" and "from what I gather" statements certainly needs some in depth explanation.

Could you post whatever Evidence (redacted) and it's source that leads you to this conclusion of the VA  colluding over the past 35+ yrs, in "Hiding Medical Evidence" from both your SMRs and VMC Medical Records?

Without factual evidence supporting your post, this sounds like an all too often "Conspiracy Theory."

I had periods of depression and my medical records were witheld from me then.  Did you go to your "release of information" office at your VAMC and ask them for your records?  If you have not done this, then you should.  

If you remember VA is not a unified body, just "go to someone else" when employee A says no, and you usually get the deisred result, tho it may take several tries.

Sounds like BS from the VA just another one of their fiasco  to use to deny. or cover themselves .

Also, it sounds like you are likely a "Nehmer" class Vet.  You can contact the NVLSP and they will help you, including attorney representation at no cost to you if you qualify.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      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

    • 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
