  • 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

VACO shake up

Recommended Posts

Yes, it seems to be a move in the right direction, but one thing is troubling:  

Apparently O Rourke, according to the article, lied to congress.  For that, he is made an "advisor" to VA?  Why would the VA want a known liar on its advisory panel?

Thanks Berta!! and this goes right to the heart of my post the other day.

Ya the VARO are rolling through claims with quick denials...so they can get their quota and Bonuses!!! Even if that is how they get paid. 

The rollout of the national work queue for claims and my claim went to half way across the country so how the heck can I go do a VARO hearing with the rater?

And if I appeal will the C-File get locked to that VARO? 

The comments over there on that story is what I was trying to convey in my post from the other day. That VARO was mentioned by a prominent person here on his blog and some smells at that VARO. And it starts with the local leadership. 

I can imagine the senior rater at this VARO or any on claims and the atta boys they give out:

" Awesome denial way to go John!"

"That's the denial of the week Mary, great job!"

"Here is you reward for the most denials in 90 Days! Outstanding!"

"I love the way you deny Ted you are an example for the younger RO! Great work!"

"Keep those D's going folks the quarter is almost over! $$$$$"

and on and on.

I would like to think that RO's are rated by the number of remands they receive.  Particularly in ones where the RO is called out for not following procedures, like ignoring buddy statements.

    • 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.
