  • 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

Partial bva grant implementation

Question

Has anyone had a bva partial grant implemented yet within the last year. May 1st I had a partial grant for my left shoulder and my PTSD remanded. September I was told I was rated at 20 percent for shoulder with retro going back to Jan 2012 by my rep. Peggy even slipped up once and told me my rating, just pending authorization. That was in Oct. Anyone else in the same boat? I haven't had any implementation st all. Nov 28 I received a letter stating my RO has started on my remand. I'm hoping they aren't going to finish my remand before paying me anything.

Fast letter 10-02 says they are not supposed to do that.  They are supposed to pay you right away, then remand.  Contact the white house hotline.

Yes, call the whitehouse hotline.  My case was finished in the last year and they withheld my monies until the remand was completed.  This is not according to the Fast letter but we all know that the VA does not always follow their regulations.

I’m not hijacking here just explaining from my previous answer.  We called Peggy,  but it was not a Peggy.  He was very nice and helped tremendously.  Yes they are still waiting for AEW to be put in system for the back pay to be paid.  However he checked on Iu claim and evidently it had been lost in the system.  Because they had told us it had already been claimed.  We received notification of that in Oct.  but no it was never claimed, so then they both got lost in system!  So he sent an inquiry to RO to ask them to get this straightened out.  Gave me the inquiry #.    So then he checked on the remand for CKD,  now the IU was also remanded with it.  But the CkD had been lost in system too.  Sent an inquiry for that also.  Sometimes you get. Someone that really does help.  We have called about this before and no one volunteered to go as far as he did.  We could have been setting for ever here.  I even had a girl tell me the other day that hubby did not have any back pay coming.  I will not tell you what I said.  She was lookin on the break down sheet from the va!

Hume, We are still waiting too.  No implementation from BVA partial grant back in March 2018.  No movement on the remand from that order either.  We have made 2 WH hotline inquiries.  The last one was in October.  Still nothing.  All the inquiries to Peggy have been exactly the same.  I do an IRIS inquiry every month, but nothing has changed yet.  WE also started a dependency claim last july (very simple to verify that she is still in college) and they have not settled that either.  Peggy says that it will be settled when our Grant is finalized. Just waiting.........

    • 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.
