  • 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

I sure am hoping that some of the disabilities being considered will be on the list-------hard to say---

HBP and Stroke, along with bladder cancer are being considered.......also Parkinsonian symptoms ( that are not actually diagnosed as Parkinsons) ...dont know what else is in the IOM report. If I have time I will try to find and post it here......

HBP would be BIG, and very costly for VA-but who cares on cost-----

If HBP becomes an AO presumptive, that alone is one of the most devastating disabilities that any incountry Vietnam vet could have...as it leads to stroke. I am asking my Prayer Warrior group at my church to pray for more AO presumptives. The VA might not even add anything...but HBP would be incredible and alter the lives of many Vietnam incountry veterans.

Any other new presumptives will help.

AO was a weapon of mass destruction that has caused catastrophic disability in many Vietnam vets.And many of them are already dead.

If this all leads to Nehmer # 4, there should  be  a provision for their survivors,  And hopefully a Footnote One scenario for any AO vet (dead or alive).

Could dementia potentially fall into this category?

Per this article-yes:

http://www.alz.org/dementia/parkinsons-disease-symptoms.asp

Since Parkinsons is already on the AO presumptive list, I guess they are looking further into pre -full blown Parkinsons symptoms.

I am hopeful because I have a family member who served in Vietnam for a year and is in early stages, despite it not running in the family.

    • 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:
