  • 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

What do I do?


Hello all, 

Had a C&P exam last week and felt as though the examiner was very dismissive. Read the note today and she contradicted much of what i said; for example I described several instances of having difficulty with impulse control, yet she wrote “veteran denies issues with impulse control or unprovoked irritability”, despite writing down my examples. Same went with other things, where I described my struggles with managing finances, maintaining hygiene, etc. She wrote veteran denies issues with x, y, z when I clearly did not deny it, I actually brought a lot of things up that she chose to not discuss.

What do I do with that report? Do I wait until they give me their rating and then appeal it, or would it be beneficial (and is there any way to?) address the faultiness of that report now?

Thank you!

Your best bet is to wait and see where your case goes from here.  If you say the examiner was not honest it could look bad on you.  When you appeal, if that is necessary, you might need to get an IMO for your condition.  So right now relax and wait.  We on this board know how difficult that is but it is your sanity's best route.  We have been there before, I had a neurologist write a very bad evaluation on me and it all worked out in the end.

I agree with Vetquest  your just going to have wait and see how your decision goes/

  Some times when we think we got a bad C&P Exam  during the exam   some of those examiners are just having a bad day them self's and when they write there report out it could be beneficial to you, but if it is a bad decision and you don't agree  you have a year to appeal the decision  so as soon as you get the decision Appeal it,

You may need to request your C-file and as Vetquest mention get an  IMO (Independent Medical Opinion) from a specialist to rebute what this examiner mention  and have the Dr to go onto details about your condition. 

Be sure to ask the Dr to go by the VA Guideline for the criteria of your condition and use the words ''Is Likely As Not ''

Most of us have had to do this, but wait on your decision  it may not be as bad as you think? The you know what areas to address with  Doc

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!


      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
