  • 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

Question

I am currently at 20%, I put in for an increase, and because I am an optimistic person I put in for dependents (My wife & kids), I submitted the claim in September of last year..  I checked my claim this afternoon, there happened to be an update.  I was just curious what "Awaiting 020 rating Promulgation" means?  I googled the word Promulgation and get the vibe that my claim may be coming to an end.  Any info?

It is referring to an EP 020 which is defined here https://www.knowva.ebenefits.va.gov/system/templates/selfservice/va_ssnew/help/customer/locale/en-US/portal/554400000001018/content/554400000011

The easiest thing you can do is call Peggy at 1-800-827-1000 and see what they can tell you. But keep in mind this is a verbal answer and not always reliable. Don't believe anything from the VA until

it is probably just a code they use for something.  But it looks good from here

The EP stands for End Product and the 020  means

General:  EP 020 applies to disability compensation or service-connected death claims received after an initial eligibility decision has been made.  Unless otherwise noted, the EP will not be cleared until all issues raised by the claim have been resolved.

 

so yes your claim for increase seems to be about to be entered into the system, and considering your dates of submission and the word promulgation in that status line, it suggests that somewhere up the line a decision is pending.

but again call Peggy to find out more specifically and let us know what they say.

I think I may call my VSO on Monday (Maybe I will be traveling for work) and see if she is willing to let me know.  I initially started with a VSO, he actually left for a job elsewhere and I had no idea!  She has taken over and is a little less willing to divulge things (I think she has been burned by rate changes in the past.)  I was surprised that I haven't found much about this type of status update anywhere.  I know the ep020 code represents secondary claims (which mine is).  My initial claim left much to be desired.

      Hello All,
       
      After a 7 year wait, I won my VA appeal.  The problem is my new rate (1 July) and retro pay are calculated by the "Veteran Alone" rate.  I have a spouse and child.  I checked Ebenefits and the dependent status is correct there.  I'm not sure how a mistake like that can be made. I called the 800 number which was a waste of time.  A rep from IRIS was able to take action.  She said she would send a notice over to the "Dependent Dept."  Has anyone encountered anything like this?  Is there a way to follow-up.  How long should this take? I can remember it took a year for VA to add my spouse.  Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.  Thanks for your service!

      Greetings, fellow vets!  I am a 70% SC veteran married to a 90% SC veteran.  Can I get the spousal benefit that would give me $100 more a month?  What is disqualifying?  For example, how much money in support, do I live with him.  Can't find much information about this.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Good afternoon All and Thank you all for your service!

      I do not have any awards as of yet but for those who do how common is it for the VA to initiate/open a dependency claim while your compensation claim is still active? I submitted a FDC on 1/17/2017 and it included the 21-686c for Status of Dependents. Is this a good sign for potential service connection award for those familiar or working at VA?

      I was in the USAF Reserves and have been out since May 2012.

      There was a suspense date for the dependency claim of 5/2/17, asking for a "rating" (assuming associated with my compensation claim), however my compensation claim is still in the Prep for Decision phase in Ebennies.

      Curious to know if this is a good sign that the VA initiated this dependency claim about 90 days into my compensation claim.

      Thanks,

      Shaun

      I am trying to learn the internal mechanisms that occur inside the VAMCs regarding the induction of claims and C&P exams. Also are there regulations that are supposed to be followed by the health care providers.
      Evidentally there much be some kind of process in place, that the Health care providers follow, or are supposed to follow, that initiate claims.
      For example. I was rated at zero percent for a service connected condition. I got very ill, sought treatment, got treatment, then at the end of treatment, the NP that was treating me, set up a C&P exam, inside the Va to get a higher comp rating.
      I have also witnessed C*P examiners directly call the benefits branch of the VA from thier office.. So im positive that there is some kind of continuity,    what I want is a  concrete procedural flowchart of sorts, or explaination of how this  exactly it works. I have heard the term, INFERRED claims as well.
      How does the healthcare provider, decide when and how to get involved in claims> and are they trained in this aspect.
      Information gained or shared on this process, could get many veterans service connected, if there is indeed a  process governed by law, that is not being followed correctly.

    • 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,

      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.
