  • 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

Tell us more of the caregiver.  Was it on you?  Your spouse?  Did you have a c and p exam?  

Are you a gulf war Vet?  Vietnam?  

Who is your caregiver? (family member or no) .  What disabilities did you need to show to be eligible for caregiver??

Of course it on me. I filed the form and received an appointment through VES. Afterwards, started to receive funds. Doesn't matter what OPS you fall under. Caregiver is my gf. Disabilities have to be to a point your mobility is hindered.

Saw the clinical psychologist. She wasn't aware of my Anthrax claim. She only received my service connected information...sleeplessness, which was already rated a few months prior. I don't know what will come with this. I may have to run tests on auto-immune diseases. What I found disturbing is that while I was interviewed by the psychologist, they were asking questions to my girlfriend about me. WHAT? When I was done, I stepped into the lobby and my GF was missing. She was in the back room with someone asking questions. WTF?

BioThrax is made by Emergent BioSolutions, formerly BioPort, has been a target of criticism ever since the company, founded by Fuad El-Hibri and other investors, including the late Adm. William Crowe, a former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, bought the lab in 1998. BioThrax, was made in a formerly state-owned lab in Lansing — that remains the only of its kind licensed for use, with no clear competitor in sight.

    • 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.
