  • 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

Conflicting information

Question

Hi,

I hope someone can clarify; I have read conflicting info about who to give new medical information to.  I currently have a NOD.  I have read: 1) turn the info in to your VSO, 2) hold on to the info until your meet with a DRO and then give the info to the DRO right then and there.  If anyone has any thoughts, opinions, and/or advice it will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you very much.

To Ms. Berta:  I envy you about how you don't accept negativity.

H

I would make copies  give some to your VSO and keep the other copies yourself and take with you to your DRO Hearing or Review.

if the VSO don't send in this crucial evidence in time for the DRO Hearing  then you can present it at this time.

so if you have the evidence to change a decision in your favor submit it to your DRO. if he don't have it  you may need to ask him/her if they have this evidence in the computer ? if DRO says No  THEN WHIP IT OUT AND SHOW HIM YOUR COPIES.

So, apparently you have a DRO hearing coming up?  I would send it to the evidence intake center (if there is plenty of time before the hearing), but make sure its in your file and have a copy with you.  

This is the main reason to have a DRO hearing...check the evidence he has, and check the evidence you have.  If there is anything missing, hand the DRO a copy.  Have 2 copies available..one for you to keep one to give to the DRO.

Hello Hollie!  One thing that we have learned through many claims, 2 appeals, and a remand is that we have many copies of EVERYTHING!  We send copies into the appropriate places and present them in person when necessary.  There have been many times when evidence has gotten "lost" throughout the process and if you don't check ebenefits regularly, you may not know until it's too late.  So, in answer to your question,  I agree with Broncovet and Buck.  Do both.

Thank you Buck, its great advice that I will follow.  This entire situation has been a fiasco from the start.  My take-away is (and this is just my opinion) if your service-connected disabilities get worse a Veteran should think about the consequences if things go south.  I mean really devote some deep thinking.  This NOD has me in all sorts of places trying to right a wrong.  It is difficult to keep a positive attitude but then I think of the Veterans who are in much worse situations than myself and also Berta's statement of how she does not give in to negativity sets me thinking of what is right instead of what is wrong.

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
