  • 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

Claims Timeline--- Where do I find the completed DBQ exam?

Question

First time poster! I just discovered had it and have been reading so much great information on here. I'm currently rated at 90% and have 5 pending claims.

I need three 20's and one 10 to get to 100%(pretty confident that I'll get there but, the VA is weird).

Here's the timeline on my open claim:

Initial Submission-- 12/13/2018

C&P Exam Date: 1/2/2019

Prep for Decision: 1/4/2019

It's moving a lot faster than expected. Not sure if the process will keep moving fast or, hit a brick wall. You never know with the VA

From what I've been reading, there is a way to access your DBQ exam online...can someone tell me how to do that? I've been looking everywhere and can't find it to save my life.

if you already had your C&P dated 1-2-2019

if the VA did the exam  check with your release of medical records desk at your VAMC......>  you need to  wait After 3 days of the exam.

IF it was contracted out?...you may need to wait a few weeks for the process to get recording and put into your files.  you can check at the VBA( Veterans Benefit Administration) office  let the clerk know what you need,   you will be assign a VSO and you go back to their desk and he/she can look on the computer on that date of your C&P and if its in the computer they can make you one free copy.

I agree with Buck.  Unfortunately, since VA paid for that exam, they have control over it, and they dont always let you see that exam.  Often, like Buck posted, you can go to your ROI and get a copy.  

IT "should" move faster for an increase, as the VA "shouldnt" require you to re document your in service event and nexus leading to service connection.  You merely have to demonstrate a worsening of symptoms, in the event of an increase.  

Are you working??  If not, consider filing for TDIU, especially if sc conditions prevent you from SGE.  (working). 

Yes, I know there is controversy concerning tdiu vs 100 percent.  However, the difference in compensation between 90 percent and 100 percent "is not" 10 percent, like you would think.  A single Vet at 100 percent is 3057 while a single 90 percent vet is $1853.  For you to be earning 1853 and wanting to move to 3057, you would need an increase of over 60%, not 10 percent llike you would think.  You also get many additional benefits at 100 percent, most of which are also available to TDIU.

It was contracted out to a company called LHI...I'm assuming that it would be a waste of time to contact LHI and ask them to provide a copy? What do you think? Thanks for responding

Hopefully it does move faster. Four of the pending claims are increases, the other one is secondary.

 

I'm currently an independent contractor so, technically, I don't have a "real job". I work when I'm physically able to.

 

I'll start looking into the TDIU filing process. You're right 10 percent is definitely not 10 percent when it comes down to compensation. Thanks for responding

wait a few weeks and go to your local VAMC @ the VBA (Veterans Benefits Administration) Office, Request a copy of your C&P Dated on**/**/**** You just go up to the window sign a FOIA and on this piece of paper  request a copy of your last C&P  contractor LHI, they should let a VSO see you back in his office,  he has access to the VBMS and can look on the computer for your C&P Exam.

Unless they stopped doing this for Veterans? ..I did this in 2014

Note: when you go up to the window and the Clerk ask  ''if they can help you''  just ask if you can see a VSO about your benefits, you don't need to tell them the reason why...this is what you ask the VSO.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

    • 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.
