    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

You might not never have to have a dairy date exam? (for VA to see if your disability's have shown improvement) but we never know.

when you filed your claims you must had enough concrete evidence they didn't need to send you for a EXAM and you won your claims that way.

We never know when and If were going to be called up for a C&P Exam usually the 1st 5 years if there going to call you up or send you a letter for a Examination  its within this time.

just set back keep using the VAMC or Private if you have good insurance for treatment and you should be ok.

Is the PC Prostate Cancer?

I caught a past post you made in April:

"Good Morning all you VETs

Who or what updates my status in EBenefits. I filed a claim in Dec 2016. on April 6 it changed from GOE to complete, Decision letter sent. Have not received a letter and claim is now under Historical claims. Peggy says someone found a duplicate claim, from where I will never know. They closed the claim and opened another claim with a file number. I cannot see or track a claim in Work in Progress. So who or what updates Claim status in Ebennies?"

If you are a Vietnam veteran, is it  at all possible you or a vet rep filed a claim for the PC and/0r  the  IHD in the past?

Reason I ask is that I have VAOLA Paranoia and wonder if the  duplicate offered a better EED under Nehmer -2010 for the IHD.

They must have based the award on private treatment records.

Did they enclose the rating schedules for the IHD and Prostate Cancer?

If not they are here under the VA Schedule of ratings topic, about half way down when you scroll the link.

The "0" for the K award might be wrong too.

Weather is affecting my internet-------if ity clears up I will try to find the ratings at the BVA- there are PLENTY of prostate cancer appeals.

 

Do you feel you would fit into a higher criteria based on your medical evidence for either disability?

The K award is no longer ratable at 10%  they are giving the K at  0% S.C. And its paid 103.** monthly added in  to the veteran compensation.

    • 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
