  • 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

Seeking Veterans to participate in user experience studies

Question

On behalf of the Department of Veterans Affairs, we are recruiting Veterans to participate in user experience studies. The VA wants to make it easier for you to explore, apply for, manage, and track your VA benefits. Teams at the VA want to hear your feedback about improvements they are making to VA websites, mobile applications, and other digital tools -- to ensure that these services are usable and relevant for you.

All Veterans are welcome to participate. We are also seeking caretakers, family members, and soon-to-separate service members. All participants receive a thank you gift.

Details of the program and registration are at http://veteranusability.us/

We look forward to helping you participate.

CTO, Perigean Technologies

I'm curious, if your study is legitimate, why does your link not have a va.gov url?  With all the hacking and identity theft going on in the world these days, it is hard to trust that an official VA survey would be conducted by a private company on a private website.

I looked at your website, and there isn't anything that would indicate you're authorized to conduct official U.S. Government business of any kind.  I have not been contacted by the VA about participating in any non-VA surveys, either.

Please don't feel insulted, but I wouldn't advise anyone to even click on your link until we see some kind of proof that this is a legal enterprise.  Yes, I'm a cynic, after many years of daily phone calls by charlatans and scammers.  

I've become so jaded that every day I refuse millions of dollars of free money from friendly benefactors, most of whom are located in Africa, and all of whom are fine, upstanding folks, I'm sure.

All that said, I hope you're for real.  On the other hand, I can't speak for all disabled vets, but if someone was scamming my fellow veterans and I found out who and where, someone might undertake a covert op one night to eliminate the threat.

Pedro, I can create a simple website just like that one in a matter of hours.  Anybody who can use a computer can create a website and make any number of claims about what they do and who they do it for.  Those "press releases" were created by the same guy(s) that created the website.  

I do not believe that the VA is going to allow someone to say they're conducting business "on behalf of" the VA, and yet not make some  official statement to that effect,  I bet you can't show me even ONE official VA announcement from any va.gov or official United States government website.

I'm calling bullshit until I see OFFICIAL U.S. Government / Department of Veterans Affairs documentation that this dude is authorized to act as an extension of a federal agency.  

Hey, since they're acting "on behalf of" the VA, can they write me a check for about $200K the VA owes me in retro?

Enter that website at YOUR OWN RISK.

    • 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.
