    employment 2.jpeg

Did you get a copy of the C & P DBQ? Could you post a redacted copy?

You're currently 100% SC, what exactly are you shooting for?

I agree with Gastone.  I will assume this c and p exam is for housebound or aid and attendance?  

A month since a C and p exam is not long, per VA time.  VA actually measures time in years not months, that is, if you discount the VA's fake wait lists, and other fake VA stuff like "eliminating the VA backlog" wherer they pretty much denied most people and shoved it into appeals, where the wait is longer.  

At least one Vets advocate does not recommend using ebenefits for some great reasons:

1.  Its unreliable

2.  It drives you nuts checking it several times a day.

      Instead of repeatedly checking ebenefits, I suggest you get a hobby:  Fishing, play chess, enjoy time with grandkids, etc.etc etc.  Waiting on the proverbial "check in the mail" is rarely productive.  I think its okay to check it maybe twice a week, but I dont recommend more than that.  

     Once thing you CAN do is to plan out what you will do when you get the check.  Lets say there are 3 possibilities:

1.  No check at all.

2.  0 to $10,000

3.  More than 10,000.  

      You can make a plan for each of these.  For example:

1.  No check...read the decision and file a NOD.  You can order your cfile now, or maybe just he c an p exam.  It gives you a chance to challenge the competency of the examiner if so indicated.  

2.  You can make a "priority" list for bills to pay, and fun thing you want to do with the money.  I suggest you save some if not most of it.  I still have retro unspent from my 2009 award..and Im glad.  I invested it, some of it in bitcoin, and man am I glad of that.  

3. Again, you make a priority list that goes deeper this time.  

    Have fun.  Its better to choose to look at the brighter side, and yes, I know Im one of the worst.

I filed for aid and attancdance the way i understand smc s is 100 plus 60 but if you get aid and attandance that puts you at smc l. I have 50 percent for sleep apnea so if they increase my mental to 100 percent from 70 i'll be smc l 1/2. Its not physical but my depression anxiety is bad and i'm no good for long periods alone.  I can not keep up with basic cleaning and cooking hygene. physically i can walk . my memory is a bit bad.. i guess i'll wait and see. Claims seem to be going alot better than years ago when i fierst started took 2 years.. after that its been around 9 months.. i think the gage on ebenifits is good as long as its clear cut and all evidence there.. thanks for the input

Sorry, no, A and A is not 100 plus 60.  That is for housebound (SMC S), a lesser benefit.  To get statuatory housebound, your 100 plus 60 has to be seperate and distinct from each other.  And, recent cases suggest its a "combined" 60 not an added 60.

Yes maybe I lose people 100 plus 60 is smc s. But if u get aid and attandance from what I read u jump to smc l. Then every 50 percent moves u up a mark that would make me smc l 1/2 . Guess I'll know very soon

    • 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.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
