  • 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

To RAMP or not to RAMP, that is the question!

This certainly sounds like the DRO Review Appeal minus the DRO and the mandatory submission of New & Material Evidence.

It appears that just a Sr Rater as opposed to a DRO does the Review and if the Denial is continued, the Vets only option is to the BVA. It's clearly stated that once the Vet opts for the RAMP (fast track? time will tell), he can't get back into the Traditional RO DRO (Review or Hearing) process.

Then again, it was an RO Sr Rater that did my 07/2016 Denial Quality Review and reversed the SA Increase Denial to 100% 12/2016. That took less than 4 mos, hell of a lot shorter than a DRO Reviews 18 mos for a Decision.

  Gastone Roger That.

This will just have to run its course first to see if its any better.???

I will say to the Veterans that opt over to ''RAMP'' 

Gastone is correct about opt over to'' RAMP''

I read in one of Ms Tbirds blogs that the current Appeals process is called the

Legacy process and if a Veteran opts to change over to ''RAMP'' He/She can not go back to the Legacy (Traditional Appeals Process) As we know it.

I would say at least its a start,  However I agree with Gastone we won't know how RAMP will be or if its any faster or what?  time will only tell (in my opinion.)

The thing (I won't call it a problem) is that if vets get screwed in any way and find out or question whether or not the decision screwed them, and the only way the community will find out is trial by fire. Since a lot of us have been seriously burned over the years and are so jaded and angry... how can we trust anything the va does. Is it to the benefit of vets or the va? (rhetorical)..

"Legacy Program" sounds like something you get when you are dead.

    • 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.
