  • 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

Average wait time for an expedited appeal decision once the judge receives it?

Question

The BVA judge received my expedited appeal on March 9, 2018 but l have not received a decision yet.  Vets.gov lists the wait time as 1-2 months but it's been almost 4 so I would really appreciate any feedback from those of you who have had yours expedited regarding wait time for a decision.  I'm praying for all of my fellow brothers and sisters who are still fighting.  THANK YOU SO MUCH in advance for your help...God bless all of you and thank you for your service!

Unfortunately it seems the RO's do not adhere to the remands being expedited.  Do you have a VSO or a lawyer?  You can call the VA hotline but do not contact a congressman, unless you have a personal relationship with one the VA will respond with a form letter and the congressman will send you a letter telling you what the VA said.  In the meantime your case goes back to the bottom of the pile.

Vetquest, thank you for replying.  This is not a remand but I suppose that doesn't matter to the VA since nothing else seems to.  I have an attorney who checks VACOLS every morning and have tried to call the BVA status line several times at different times of day but no one ever answers so I'm frustrated like all of us.  I agree...going the Congressional Rep. route will only delay it more since all work has to stop so that the inquiry can be done.  Well, thank you again for taking the time to reply and best wishes for you and all of our fellow vets...thank you for your service!

Pwrslm, thank you for replying, too.  Won't calling the WH hotline number generate a similar Congressional type inquiry that would delay it further?  Where did you get that number and have you used it with any success?  Thanks again for taking the time to try to help and best wishes to you and thank you for your service!

No.

WH is a POTUS supervised VA back door, the Congressional is a formal inquiry.

 

Every time I have used the WH HL it moved my solution faster, or forced the VA to follow their own rules.  Us their own playbook against them and they will do exactly what you want them to do. This is the USC, CFR and the M21R inclusive. If you do end up with VR&E, that is covered by M28R. These are the VBA's operation manuals. They also have a ton of directives and handbooks detailing how each section functions, interpretations of rules and policy letters, etc. It may take some time to find the right thing, but if you are right and stick to your guns, there isnt much they can do about it.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
