  • 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

NOD at 1 year Mark

Question

Hello,

 

  Just a quick question, My NOD is coming up on a year mark since I filed and my VSO said I should have an answer before the year mark is up. It has moved from GOE to review of evidence on ebeinfits. Has anyone else had that happen? thanks for the help.

Root beer I don't wanna bring ya down. I have had a NOD in for 2 1/2 years with no contact from VA or DRO, I requested a DRO review. Just in the last two weeks I saw movement on claim. On Ebennies it went to PREP FOR DECISION. Man was I surprised, The original claim was filed mid 2013.  Its a no brainer to me and everybody else because the physical disability is visual. 

It was my first claim to VA and the county VSO worded it and sent claim in for me. Ever since I have been sending my own claims in with my wording. I did the appeal with NOD and sent it in. Root beer I believe everybody's  NOD is different. It would be hard for me to believe time frames would be the same for appeals requesting NOD. It disheartens me thinking about it. That's why I haven't been around here for a while. It does me good to back away and not dwell on appeal. The whole VA thing drains me dealing with Veterans Affairs.  I saw where Trump signed a bill here a couple weeks ago to fix appeal process but that is suppose to take time to get going.

I had Appeal with NOD requesting DRO informal meeting. I figured it would take 6-12 months. 2 1/2 years still waiting. I am not represented by anybody. Just me vs Veterans Affairs.

I feel the same way. I have DBQ's from my doctors in, Nexus letters from both my VA docs as well as my own doctors and still I sit and wait, and the worst part is the more I read the more I think I will be denied again just because

    • 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.
