  • 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

Processing time on dependent


I submitted paperwork to VA to notify of dependent - and at same filed appeal on claim decision from previous year.  I called VA a week ago and was that they only process one claim at a time, and since I filed TDUI and an on the original claim decision (decision received in 2017), I needed to wait to receive response until the TDUI was processed expected in Feb/Mar 2019.  Is that true?  Why wouldn't dependent issue just be processed separately - it was sent to VA in July 2018.


Thank you.

No, its not true.  I currently have an appeal pending at the CAVC, another appeal in Ramp.  Its just not true that VA can only process one at a time.  It used to be, because there was only one paper file.  Now, they can be done electronically, especially with dependents.  Allison Hickey, about 4 years ago, was upset it was taking VA forever to process dependent claims.  There is no decision necessary..you either have a dependent or you dont.  

Some Vets have gotten dependent claims in the Hickey era done if just a few days.  Of course, the VA bureacracy dies hard, and there are many who want us to wait forever on everthing.    I suggest you call someone else, or send an IRIS inquiry or contact the white house hotline.

I filed multiple CUE claims fairly recently-on three separate issues -sent separately , that were awarded in one award letter.


Per VA they have all gone to the same person at my VARO.(I hope they can read)

When I became a claimant in 1995, I became claimant on my dead husband's two separate claims issues when he died. (higher PTSD rating and 1151 claim.)

When Nehmer Phila RO got my AO IHD death claim, I asked them to adjudicate 2 CUES I had filed -one in 2003- and one in 2004- stating not only are these claims still at my VARO -Buffalo, but they are both contingent on a proper AO IHD award.

Filed 2003-and 2004 , awarded 2012 by Nehmr Phila VARO.

They were set for BVA transfer but I dont think my RO wanted the VA to even see them.

A twelve year old could have awarded them. They were perfect.

My RO sent me some meaningless rhetoric as I had asked for reconsideration-which added time to the claims but they had told me the CUEs were with a "specialist"- (I think they meant the guy who refills their paper cup dispenser at the RO water cooler .)

I should have whipped out 38 CFR 4.6 on them.Still I was patient , (and in college at the time- too much to deal with) because I knew Nehmer RO would have to grant them.

Actually I can't wait to get some BS from them again, and their decision will go to the OAWB and the (Secretary  and POTUS) and maybe I can join a complaint a former member here filed with the IG against this VARO.) The college above  I went to- was the American Military University-first civilian graduate and  with Honors.

I learned how to FIGHT! And the VA paid for it under Chapter 35.😀😄😀

Next to Evidence, the most important weapon we have , is their own regulations.And we can use those regulations against them- as they try to do to us.

    • 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.

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
