  • 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

Service connection issue

Question

So the caregiver coordinator team is trying to say they looked into my application but they have to deny for reasons surrounding my sTBI and issues they have with it. I’ve already had my 2006 sTBI case won with a BVA Judge so how can this caregiver team tell me that this TBI is not eigible/in the line of duty. Even after my service department said I was in the LOD and the BVA Judge.How many times does this issue have to be judged? And if my Aid and Attendance claim goes through and I’m granted at the least L wouldn’t that support my caregiver application?

You will need to wait for the envelope..your caregiver coordinator is probably not also a rating decision maker and may not know.  Not all decision makers will make the same decision on a particular claim.  So your decision maker may/may not agree with your coordinator.

TBI Claims are very complex and diverse  so- to -speak...there are many many contention/conditions a TBI /Concussion to the head  Can be related to  ect,,,ect,,,,

So  ITS HARD FOR THEM TO FIGURE OUT JUST WHAT THE CORRECT RATING CRITERIA WILL END UP??

Under the Mental health criteria...a Veteran that has a TBI and has all his limbs  arms legs ears everything in tack  vs a Veteran that has aTBI without all those things an IED can cause or unexpected blast or trauma to the head.....I think this is a rating problem? who knows forsure??...

of course the veteran that has loss of use  it would be fairly clear....so I think the Veterans with TBI that has all their limbs in tack  they go fuller into their TBI Claims....(not sure this would be reasons to deny?)

Looks like to me a TBI is a TBI and should be rated under the Veteran symptoms (All Symptoms) for the TBI

Sounds like they are hesitant to rate? 

THIS IS JUST ONE OF MY REASONS I DO NOT FULLY UNDERSTAND JUST HOW THEY RATE VETERANS WITH TBI's

In the old days   Veterans were called shell shocked  (PTSD) And was rated by symptoms!!  even under the same thing as today from sudden blast from trauma to the head.

The Gulf Wars Are some how different  from the War War II and Vietnam Era Veterans.

This isn’t a rating im 100 Pand T this is just for the caregiver program. I was told that bc my re-enlist code was RE-1 when disacharged and was redeployment after my TBI I don’t meet the criteria of one step away from a nursing home without my wife...she went on to say your aid and attendance claim is not going to go through either I’m livid I know the rules and regs I understand that as far as SMC L I qualify for just have to wait forever and a day for the approval whether it has to be done with an appeal im sure like everything else but one can hope a FDC might Actually be accurate for once.

    • 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.
