  • 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

Always missing their deadline

Question

But why is it when the VA says we will call you on Friday with our answer you start to laugh in your head. Wait that’s what they told me and my wife so my wife calls at the end of the day and leaves a VM, to see if we had any news. The coordinator was nice and said to both of us we should most definitely should be getting help I just hate when they tell you a date and always miss it every time it’s sad but expected....

Dates with the VA are definitely not speed dating.  It took ten years for the VA to finalize my claim and I am now waiting on a DRO about an EED.  When my claim is finally finished I will have to find something else to test my patience or I will feel lost.  Where else in life can I find people who are so unfeeling and slow. 🙂

So I imagine the DRO would be a good speedy method for an EED claim but if the retro is a large amount won’t they still just deny it? Just asking bc that sounds like a good way to appeal EED

I don't think we can appeal the lateness of our retro? you can check the status if it seems to be way late... if the retro is the wrong amount you can appeal that...

Question to you jfrie

Are you filing most of these claims based off your TBI? and the secondaries

that  TBI can have? or do you have separated conditions related to your military service?

I have a TBI Veteran I am helping with his claim  and he is only S.C. 40% and was denied on an increase, so were checking with the Dr to see if any of his symptoms can be related to  in part caused by his TBI ???  I think he can get some secondaries ??  

 

Note: I am very unfamiliar with TBI Claims???...these type claims is horse with a different color.

Yes I am most due to my cognitive impairment and having no short term memory with lapses and blackouts all being evaluated by the VA. I’m 100 p and t based on the residuals alone and my secondary migraines are at 50 with lightheadedness and dizziness at 30% also I find out to day if I was accepted into the caregiver program as I have been in my Vas polytrauma program for 2 years...which isn’t a requirement but it helps to have all my treatment records for the director to look at...

My issue was I got tired off fighting with the Va saying My ptsd and tbi should be separate. I lost this battle instead the va hospital sees 100% ptsd and the VA disablity says it’s my residuals of a tbi with ptsd. I get mad at the hospital when my records don’t even show my sTBI but I’m p and t so not sure I cant complain and have no idea what I’d be fighting for

    • 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 !!
    • Hello:

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

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • 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.
