  • 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

USCG MK3

PTSD diagnosed, confirm stressor, to USASCURR

Question

Hello & thank you in advance

 

I am a USCG veteran, I filed for non-combat PTSD in July 2015, original claim was denied in November 2015 due to lack of evidence. On June 2, 2017 I found new evidence (news paper articles & casualty report) & submitted accordingly opening new claim based on this new evidence. I did this in person at our local VA here in LA. The VA rep that helped me believes I will get 50-70%. I have done my C&P, been diagnosed by VA with PTSD. As of today (10-6-2017), my claim is once again back in the gathering of evidence stage as seen below:

 

Due Date:  10/06/2017 Status:   NeededFrom:  Not available

PTSD diagnosed, confirm stressor, to USASCURR

 

1. My questions are, what will happen when the USASCRR doesn’t confirm stressor by the due date?

 

2. Will I automatically receive back pay from original claim date of July 2015?

 

Thank you in advance

"1. My questions are, what will happen when the USASCRR doesn’t confirm stressor by the due date?"

I think the "due date" is an arbitrary date they used.....hope so....I think they must make more than one attempt to get a response from JSRRC.

The evidence you presented must have been probative for the rep to even guess on a rating.I hope the rep is right.

 

"2. Will I automatically receive back pay from original claim date of July 2015?"

 It seems you did not appeal the denial of 2015 but re=opened with new evidence in June 2017.

If the claim is awarded -that will be the date for retro- June 2017.

The older denial might contain a CUE...if they subsequently award the claim.....might....

If so it would be a way to attain a better EED...... Too soon to know.

I hope this goes well for you.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      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
