  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

That sucks! Sorry they are doing that to you. Mine was at the BVA so the judge granted my 100% TDIU and the RO has to assign the effective date to determine back pay. Dont give up trust me. 21 yrs lat

I was 70% PTSD and 10% Tinnitus. rated in 2013.

VA ordered a C&P review done by QTC. It was on 8/16/2018.

8/20 Ebenefits status went to reviewing information

8/21 Preparation for Decision

8/22 Pending decision approval

8/22 Preparation for Notification

8/24 Completed Notification mailed.

EBenefits as of 6 p.m tonight under my Disabilities shows me 100%

Under the letters it shows me as P&T

right now I am waiting for the packet and or the new payment.

In theory if the VA cut the order for the check today it will actually be in the next months pay. Check requests sent to Treasury by Friday C.O.B. will process and can cut by the next Friday, in this case it would appear with normal monthly compensation.

 

Probably not, but I can hope.

So the day yours closed on ebenefits your rating increase changed too. My appeal closed today and my rating remained the same so I guess my appeal was denied : no increase in rating.

Adkins7B,

FYI, my ebenefits was updated as appeal complete. Historical Appeals lists it as closed. No updated SC's. The disabilities I was appealing were IC and GERD. I checked VA.gov and saw this:

Current Status

The Veterans Benefits Administration granted your appeal

The Veterans Benefits Administration agreed with you and decided to overturn the original decision. If this decision changes your disability rating or eligibility for VA benefits, you should see this change made in 1 to 2 months.

Learn more about the appeals process.
This appeal is now closed
 
The disabilities (two) they granted are: Stomach hernia and Bladder Injury (Not GERD or IC....but maybe their terms best fit the criteria?)
 
Anyway, neither of those two granted conditions are in my disability list on EBENE. Letters aren't updated either. So, while I know they have been granted...I wait for the letter or someone in ebenefits to update the system.
 
Good luck to you! Hope my timeline helps you. 🙂

Typically, GERD is rated analogous to a hiatal hernia under 38 C.F.R. 4.114 diagnostic code 7346. Ratings under diagnostic code 7346 range from 10 to 60% disabling, and depend on the presence and severity of a variety of symptoms.

Code 7517: Any Injury of the Bladder is rated under this code. 7517 Bladder, injury of:
Rate as voiding dysfunction.

Voiding Dysfunction: All urinary conditions that cannot be rated as urinary frequency or obstructed voiding are rated by this system. If the condition requires the use of a catheter or other urinary assistive appliance to remove urine from the bladder, or if the condition requires the use of absorbent materials (like pads or Depends) that must be changed more than 4 times a day, then it is rated 60%. If it requires absorbent materials that must be changed 2 to 4 times a day, then it is rated 40%. If it requires absorbent materials that must be changed only once a day, then it is rated 20%.

Depending on how the ratings schedulers rate you. If you meet the criteria for the highest rating for both you may be close to a 100% scheduler rating. I went ahead and calculated the highest ratings of 60% for those conditions,if granted + your current SC ratings=94%

All you would need is a 10% rating increase for one of your 0% SC conditions to reach 95% which will round up to 100%.

I do hope they give you the highest ratings. Congrats!!

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • 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.
