  • 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

I won my CUE but the VA gave me 0% from 2004 - 2009, then 10% 2009 to current.

Is there a CFR that the VA must provide complete medical exams during C & P's...I got the 0% because the VA said I did not have xrays. I think they should have provided xrays during the C & P...I had to pay for my own xrays in 2009...I won the CUE because the VA said in there 2004 decision, in their Statement of Case that I failed to go to that C & P....I provided a copy of that C & P where I was diagnosed with several disabilities;

High blood pressure

Chronic low back strain

Chronic left knee strain

flat feet

tinnities (VA granted this CUE back to 2004 at 10% which is fair in my mind)

 

Also, what is the law of the percentage for blood pressure? 1st C & P said 170/110 left arm, then 166/110 right arm: but only two readings and I think they should taken three...second C & P said 160/100 three times on the same arm...BVA service connected me with a diastolic of 100...VA service connected me at 10%.

The award of 10% for b/p sounds right (diagnostic code 7101, I think), where you were 100 for the second number. I know the VA has special rules on which readings they use; kinda hard to beat the guy

The award of 10% for b/p sounds right (diagnostic code 7101, I think), where you were 100 for the second number. I know the VA has special rules on which readings they use; kinda hard to beat the guy who holds all the cards you know. The most significant factor is now you are covered for hypertension; and it covers a lot of health problems, including stroke. Remember, if you should pass from a s-c condition and it is on your death certificate, your spouse can get a DIC pension of $1300+ a month. Your new s-c disability just provides additional "insurance" for your wife. Congrats!

No.  There is no CFR that says you have to have a C and P exam, and, further, if you do have one its up to the discretion of the examiner as to what tests (including xrays) to order.  

This said, you can challenge the adequacy of a c and p exam.  Absent your challenge, however, the exam is presumed "good".  More here:

just my 2 cents

If you've filed a claim with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for disability compensation or pension benefits, VA may ask you to go to an examination as part of the claim process. ... This is known as a VA claim exam or a compensation & pension (C&P) exam.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
