  • 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

Mine was November 2016  I was denied initially December 2015. I just received an invitation but now i'm all confused. The form I received was already filled out with a bar code and must be used as a cover letter.

I received the bar coded letter, as well.

VSO did not need that to file on my behalf.

Did you request the Form or was your letter written as an invitation as well? My letter wasn't barcoded but the form was at the bottom and I figured that was a scan for my cfile.

 

I guess I don't have to send it in as a cover it just says failure to do so may delay review of material.

I'm just curious as to why all the confusion. Maybe my letter was requested months ago and  its taken this long to be sent. Maybe that's why veterans have not been opting in. Is everyone receiving letters? I'm sure those that didn't receive an invitation would appreciate the assistance.

No, I did not request. The form w/bar code is separate from the letter.

Tatoo this on your arm if you need to remember it:

If unsure, read that again.  

If you want to opt into ramp, send in the form.  Its on the VA website that you no longer need an invitation.  

OR, you can ignore the quote above and beleive each and every VA employee and every VSO, no matter if they are intoxicated, or have no idea what they are doing.  (That is normal for VA).  

I want to opt in to Ramp but they never sent me a form. The form is not available on the VA website. I called them twice and they told me i would eventually receive the form with my invitation and it would have a bar code on it. They told me they don't have the form available on their website and i looked and could not find it. If i can get a form i will try to opt in to Ramp but if everyone can just send in the form why don't they have it available? I'm not sure the VA wants this program to succeed.

Also if  Veteran opts to the RAMP Program and feels its only a waist of time or to slow  for what ever reason they are not satisfied with the RAMP Program they can opt out and go back in the traditional claims process.

I don't think that is correct, once in you cannot go back... at least that is how I understand the letter that I received....

    • 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
