    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

I hope this is not political but I think the CBO should be more concerned about payments and medical care to those who have never worked a day in their life.  Veterans earn their disability in peace time and war by putting their bodies on the line.  I suffered a career ending injury through no fault of my own and am paying the price today forty some years later.

I agree with you Vetquest  most of us are in your shoes,

for me it was 46 years later.2002 I Worked up until my body would not let me...and then some

I  am hoping the Big 4 Will get this off the agenda and they cancel these proposals to All IU Veterans..it's just not fair at all...especially for the ones that already been awarded IU.

As I understand  veterans who are age 67 at the time of the proposed effective date 2020..will not be effected  but if a Veteran is turning 67  he/she could be on the chopping block/if this is passed that veteran will go back to his original disability's before the IU was Awarded.

I turn 67 this year July 2019...not sure if I am safe or not?

   but this is only a proposal.....so for   eh!

Remember, Buck, this is an "option", not law.  There is no guarantee any of it will be passed into law.  However, I did read what you read, and you would be "grandfathered" in, as you will be 67 in 2019, and it only affects TDIU Vets over 67 as of year 2020.  You dont have anything to worry about.  

Every few years, "some politician" puts forth a plan to cut Vets benefits, especially TDIU in older Vets.  EACH time it goes "nowhere" for good reason:  There are 25 million Veterans and "no" politician can stay or get in office who loses not only the Veteran's votes, but there are millions more who are "in support" of the troops.   It would be political suicide for a politician to introduce legislation that would hurt Veterans.  The DAV, VFW, and a bunch more Vets groups would be on that like white on rice.  Its an "option" and not any proposed legislation, so they dont get all riled up about it, and we shouldnt either.  Vets get significantly more funding each year, no matter which party is in power.  NONE of them want to alienate Veterans.   Every politician for the past 30 years or so has claimed to be "for the Veteran", as he knew he would never get elected without the Vets and Veteran friendly vote.

    • 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.
