  • 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

Hello... Need Help for a Support Project

Recommended Posts

Ok, Jesse.  Im a moderator, here, a disabled Vet, and formerly homeless Veteran.  Im gonna assume you are "the real deal", and really want to help.  

A website is not the answer.  As I mentioned, homeless people's shopping cart's are not usually equipped with 4G wireless and phone charging for cell phones which we can not afford.  

Make NO mistake.  VA is part of the problem.  Did you know it takes the "Average" Veteran more than 5 years to receive his first Veterans benefit check??  

How many people do you know who can go without any paycheck for 5 years and manage to keep their home?   Answer:  Those with rich relatives who are willing to help.  

The VA pays its employees in 2 weeks..or less..yet it takes VA 5 years to pay us.  WhY dont they put the employees who are doing VA employee paychecks working on Vets comp, and those working on Vets comp doing VA employee checks.  If VA employees waited 5 years to get paid, and Vets got paid in 2 weeks, we would see a high percentage of VA employees homeless..and suicidal.  

Make no mistake:  Being broke is very depressing, and very rich people rarely take their own life.  VA's current homeless plan consists of making as many Veterans homeless as possible, by making Veterans wait as long as possible for their benefits.  If there is no "glitch", VA will think of one and cause delays in our claims.  

I applied for benefits in 2002.  It was denied, as about 80 percent of first time claimants are.  I appealed.  The Board of Veterans appeals agreed with me, and awarded benefits.  In 2004, the VA Regional office decided to implement the board decision and "award" me a 0 percent rating.  Of course this means I appeal again, and again, and Im still appealing in 2018....16 years later.  Yes, I have gotten my benefits in 2009, but not until I lost my home and family.  Now, Im trying to get them back to 2002, when I applied.  

I dont expect actual "back pay" until 2020, or "maybe" by 2019 I could get lucky if everything goes smoothly.  That is 18 years.   My case is typical.  The BVA chairman says it takes about 5 or 6 years for an appeal (reminding you most Vets have to appeal to get benefits).  

Its no wonder there are so many homeless Vets.

    • 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,
    • This is the latest Compensation & Pension (C&P) Clinicians Guide dated 20180719. The only other one I've seen is dated 2002, including the one on this website and the VA website. I got this from my claims agent, who got it from the VA.

    • 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.
