  • 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

Ebenefits and Vets.gov sites Question

Question

Hi All,

My question today is...Has anyone had Ebennies and Vets.gov while in "with veteran law judge" shown issues remanded and granted and then when you got the BBE those issues that were remanded were actually GRANTED

More specifically has anyone experienced Ebennies and Vets.gov to say one thing and the BBE be completely different?

Thanks,

GulfVett47

Thank you for your great explanation as to why not to trust ebenennies or vets.gov.   Its also the reason why I dont like to answer questions that begin: "What does it mean when ebenefits says .....?"

It means nothing, and its useless to speculate on what ebenefits means.  Speculating on ebnefits, especially dates, is like speculating what you would do if you win the lottery, then get sucked into a sinkhole on the same day.

I dont know why ebenefits is unreliable.  I also dont know why we can not trust a VA employee, nor can we trust a VSO, in many cases.  I do know those untrustworthy VA employees "have something to do" with unreliable ebenefits.  

The next time someone asks me to speculate on ebenefits, I may link them to this post.  

A "well earned" lack of trust permeates the VA.  I was told, for example, "not" to file a NOD to a zero percent rating, as I could "lose" service connection.  As far as I know, losing service connection at zero percent has never happened.  In fact, Im not sure any active hadit member has gotten a reduction in rating, in part, because long term hadit memebers know what to do in the event of a proposed reduction.  

Yes, I have received a proposed reduction, filed a response to it, and it was quickly quashed.  It was a proposed reduction of my dependents, no less!!!   I sent them proof I was listed on my dependendents birth certificates and that was that.  

Amazingly, I have sent them these same birth certificates no less than 5 times in 10 years!!!   EACH time, the VA succeeded in losing them.  And, I missed out on dependent benefits, too, because VA claimed I didnt send in proof within a year of the decision.  Is it any wonder why I dont trust the VA employees and VSO's??   On at least 2 occassions I sent the dependent forms through a VSO....the VSO showed me the previous VSO never sent in the dependent forms, as they were in my file.  

This is why I send important evidence certified mail return receipt requested to "refute" VA's presumtion of regularity.  You see, its presumed the vA does their job, and processes all our evidence received in a timely manner, and dont lose anything.  Its almost impossible to prove you sent in applicable evidence, UNLESS you have proof the VA received it, that is a signature on a certified mail receipt, when you kept a copy.

I know that some folks have had trouble with or gotten faulty info from the ebennies and vets websites, but I have to say that, in my case, they've been 100% accurate.

I had an appeal with numerous issues that went to BVA.  The status was shown correctly.  When all but two items were granted on 8/7/188. with those two remanded, they were properly shown.

Since then, neither site has shown any movement whatsoever.  I'm afraid that is also accurate.

    • 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.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
