  • 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

EBenefits end of month?


Had a PTSD/MST claim in for another vet since May. 2 weeks ago, did C&P exam, and up to yesterday EB has been Gathering Evidence.

Yesterday they went to Pending Decision. This AM they were Pending Decision Approval, and this PM they are Prep for notification.

Anyone seen VBA move that fast before or is this a rush to meet end of month deadlines?


Also, FYI, VBA-21-0845 form allows the VA to disclose info about the claim to me. This way I can when she is set up w/EB acct, I can call peggy about her claim when she has ?'s that need answers I dont have.

Don't know what you mean by "another Vet" ,however , I had that same thing happen on a claim last year, and it was closed out right before the end of the month [after 4 months]. Good luck! I do think there is a motivation to close some claims out fast so they can put it on the books as a claim processed. Just my opinion, and don't infer they just do it with approved claims. Yours seems lighting fast though. One way to think about it: it is always better to get a quick decision ,either way, so you are not stewing in the anxiety of waiting. In the past most of us had to wait for years to get any answer, at least the VA seems to be working quicker these days, but not necessarily better.

( Another Vet=A lady I met at an AA meeting who asked for help and I gave it to her. )

God will put people in your path and sometimes you can help them. Giving back is a way to say thank you for the help I got to put in my claim!


I am expecting a denial. They gave us QTC for the C&P exam, dont think we got a fair shake there, but the speed tells me its not gonna be approved because there is a black and white issue that they cant argue about. I just gotta wait till it comes in to be sure, then get the C File to find out why.

Did I get this one wrong. They called at 4:45 asking for her bank info for deposit. 


Rep from VBA/St Pete called her, she got rated 100% PTSD/MST w/IU. 


Talk about one happy lady!

      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
