  • 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

Probably a dumb question.

Question

I have been a long time reader of this group, and its kept my hope up, and shared some happiness knowing others are getting the help they need. Well here is my long story short, i filed for benefits aproximately 12 years after my initial contract, and only 6 years after I was discharged from beimg recalled.  I did my paper work, and only claimed issues that truly happened while I was in the Army, and everything corresponded with my medical records. Everything was denied, except tinnitus. Which I was expecting from all the stories I read. So i filed my nod.  Fast forward to 6 months ago I finally got to see my first doctors.  3 in one day.  Each one agreed it was service related and told me what was written. My appeal moved around for two days it got all the way to notification, and then back to preparation for decision, and no movement since.  Well 2 days ago it completely disappeared.  Nothing pending. Nothing in va letter, no new disabilities, no pending disabilities just completely gone.  So I called the VA and they said it is still open, didnt really say why it wasnt there.  Has anyone had this happen to them? If so what was your outcome.  Just for additional info depending how things are gauged, but the doctors recommended 50 on item, while i had 4 other serious injuries that they confirmed relation to service. Am I stressing over nothing? Thank you for reading, and any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Truthfully, I wouldn't worry about it until you physically have the paper copy of their decision in you hands. Ebenefits is notoriously bad at keeping track of veteran claim status, and often leads to more misinformation than anything else. Just be patient. You've already waited this long. :)

Welcome aboard, and yest as stated above. My current FDC just completed yesterday, and it went back and forth a few times then moved 100 mph with no C&P exam requested. It disappeared yesterday as I just checked status at 5am. My pay or disability % did not change, but now under Disabilities it states(Claimed as Temporary Total Disability). Whatever that does for me good or not, I dont know as I am already 100% Permanent. Just try to relax and we will both get the Big VA Packet by the weekend. Good luck and keep us posted. God Bless

I definitely will, and thank you everyone for the advice.  It gets a little nerve wracking when it just disappears after 5 years of dealing with it.

This is an example of why a lot of people say its better NOT to check ebenefits frequently.  If you are at the BVA, they dont post to ebenefits much.  It probably means your decision is on its way..my last BVA decision was the same way, a few weeks before I got the decision.  

Your representative (VSO or attorney) may have more up to date information.  Did you contact him or her?  If its a VSO, they have a firm rule:  "NEVER RETURN VETERANS PHONE CALLS"   They dont often violate that rule.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
