  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

    • 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.
