  • 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

Voc Rehab Denial opinion from Counselor

Question

Hello everyone, I’ve been reading about VR and the effects it has on TDIU. Recently I applied for VR and after the class and paperwork I talked with the VRC about my SC disabilities and how they affect my ability to work. She told me that it appeared that I wouldn’t benefit from VR and that I couldn’t even attempt to start my own business with my drone and Ariel photography. I left feeling down on myself because what the heck was I going to do then! She said to contact her in a few days to talk about IL opinion. When I contacted her she said she would have to wait to get my PCP to agree with her decision! Is this normal? Is it up to my PCP to agree with her in order to receive the confirmation on not being able to find gainful employment? 

If this is the case I may be in trouble because my PCP is out of the country until the middle of July! Should I continue to bug the VR lady so she won’t forget about me?

You need to find it in your medical notes  as to what the VRC mention about you would not benefit from the VR /E Program due to your S.C. Disabilities..that will help you get the IU 

Your Quote above

''She told me that it appeared that I wouldn’t benefit from VR and that I couldn’t even attempt to start my own business with my drone and Ariel photography.'' I left feeling down ''

Its almost meaning the same thing as if they said this

''It is not feaisable to retrain this veteran at this time due to his S.C. Disabilities. ''

so use that as credible evidence in your claim for IU.

What about the VRC saying that she had to get with my PCP to sign the paperwork? Would the VRC’s notes still show up in my VA notes?

Your VRC appointment should be in your C file.  Move forward as Buck advised.

also - when ever the PCP is not available - a substitute is always assigned- to cover any patient issues.... FYI - so technically on your side you are never without a PCP - just not your PCP

L  Your right but, they rotate her replacement every 2 days. So, that means a different doctor every two days!  I tried to get one of the replacements doctors to help me with short term disability paperwork and they pitched a fit.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • 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.
