  • 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

Imo From Medopinions - Going For It!

Recommended Posts

I am so sorry to run this in the ground.

I need to know exactly what I need to sent to this group. I did the research on the IMO, but I couldn't find much to help me.

When we speak of SMR'S- do I need to sent my dental records, as this is costing me. If I only sent 150 sheets, they will lower their price to $2000 and not the original $2900.

Do I sent a copy of my DD-214?

My niece, the DRO, said to send everything in my claims file. I haven't the foggest ideal of what all they have in that file.

Do I sent the remand from the BVA?

The letter from the AMC?

Copies of the two C&P examinations by the Va?

A copy of my Pension- denied due to excessive, but states total disabiltiy to 1983 due to anxiety with depression and headaches?

As for my medications since 1965, I can't possibly go to any druggist and get an itemized list, but they are written as prescribed by my three doctors. Is this good enough? This is what the Va. used.

I have all of my medical records from Navy and all of my administrative records, all of my private medical records from 1965 to date.

Have I forgotten anything?

This sure makes the anxiety come out in me.

Thanks so much,

Always,

Josephine

Who are you sending the info too?

You could make copies at a copy store for about 20 to 40 bucks.

Pete53,

I saw their advertisement at the heading of this site.www.medopinions.com. There is a link at the top of the had-it page.

I am assuming they are reputable since they advertise on this site?

I don't mind paying for the copies.

I am going to over night it to them.

I am running out of time. The AMC has told me my file is complete and ready to rate.

This time, they will probably mean it.

Thanks,

Josephine

You have a current copy of your C-File, right? If you have a copy of the C-File and your SMR's and private medical records that is what I would send. Your C-File contains all the records of your claims and appeals. You are asking for IU or 100% disability are you not? It would be worth spending the money for 100% compensation. You will make it up within a couple of months.

John 999,

I wrote a letter to the Roanoke Office about two years ago and all I received was my medical and dental records. No, I do not have my complete C-file, as they would not let me have a copy.

I have the record of filing in 1978, but it was never adjudicated.

Do I sent a Psychiatrist all those Statement of the Case? What will he do with those things?

I have the pension to non - service connected - You are unable to secure and follow a substantialy gainful occupation. You are 59 years old and have a level of education reported as high school and worked last in 1983. The eveidence shows you to be disabled due to the disabilites of chronic anxiety/depression, headaches, diabetes, hypothyroidsim, vestibular condition, inner ear condition.

What am I now?

This is what I ask for service connected due to anxiety with depression with associated headaches to my original filing date of 1978 by New and Material Evidence never acquired by the Veterans Affairs. This would be my reason for filing ( my complete psychiatric records and the letter from my commanding officer for the reason for my early discharge). The BVA does acknowledge this.

Thanks,

Josephine

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
