  • 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

This vet pleaded guilty for lying on PTSD

Question

This is big news and it only makes vets look bad.  For every veteran faking a condition there are many others with real disabilities who are denied benefits.  That should be the news.

I was advised by TWO separate attorneys to lie on my claim.

One lawyer advised me to file for Tinnitus.  I don't have a tinnitus SC connection.  He said "You fired a weapon right?"

I told him NO...I won't file for tinnitus.  He was out of Charlotte, NC.

The other Atty advised me to file for PTSD, because I was stressed out over my claim.  He's out of San Diego, Ca.

What would have happened if I had filed?

I, and ONLY I would end up in prison and the lawyer would deny advising me of filing a false claim.  He'd be laughing all the way to the bank, while I sit in jail.

If a lawyer has been unethical in anyway, should report them to the bar.  BTW, you can have tinnitus for many other reasons besides "firing a weapon".

This is truly sad as are other cases out there like woman saying they were "raped" when in fact they weren't.  These false accusations make it hard for the true victims.  I am glad he admitted his wrong doing.

I can't believe the VA would grant him SC for PTSD based on seeing someone commit suicide. Or how the VA couldn't piece together he wasn't even there before granting him SC.

I saw this earlier.  Important "Take Away": 

Dont lie to VA or exaggerate your symptoms.  

I Equally important:  Its not always necessary to "be there" when a friend commits suicide to get PTSD.  

Example:   Your spouse dies.  You were not present at her death.  This does not mean you wont grieve, it does not mean you wont feel guilty for not being there for her when she passed, and it does not mean you wont have a mental illness over her death.  

I have read of vets getting SC for a friends death even when they were not present at the death.  Of course, the problem is that the Vet lied, pretending he was present when he was not.  

Telling the truth should suffice in getting benefits, if it does not, tell the truth anyway.  You may not get your benefits but you should sleep well at night.

I agree I don't see how he was S.C. without service records or service treatment records

(evidence).

 Raters,They don't read or look at everything if there behind scheduled processing claims  they have so many claims to do each day.

seems like the ones that CAN prove they were traumatized will only be denied but the ones that CAN'T prove it gets approved  just shows VA don't have a perfect system.

And yeah this type fraud  it makes it hard for our fellow veterans to prove their PTSD Claims.

    • 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.
