  • 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

Psoriasis exam


Question

I'll try to keep this short(ish). While In the Army I got a shot that caused a really bad rash on my torso. Biopsy said paraspsoriasis (I think means psoriasis like). Did just under six months of phototherapy, cleared up. Got out right after (2012) and put in a claim within a month of getting out. Claim was denied because they said they couldn't find military records. Got bad again, VA doc described it as "severe and disabling" put in new claim 2014/15 ish. Denied for not being able to find military records and service connection. Now (2019) I put in a claim through representative as CUE. She says since it was filed within a year of getting out and within the presumed service connected period, it wouldn't matter whether they had military records or not and shouldn't have been turned down for not finding service records. I since found my records on the Tricare site. Record describes it as reaction to injection. Has been horrible for so much of the past 7 years- face, eyelids, palms soles- I worry when I go to my new exam and it's only only hand/palms for the past few months they will judge it based on it's current state. How do I express/prove how bad it normally is. Also in 2015 VA doc wanted to put me on cyclosporine and methotrexate. He said I could expect a significantly shorter life span as a result but it would be "worth it" to have clearer skin. I decided against it. What can I expect from not taking the meds? If you read all this thanks, I appreciate the advise.

You should not be penalized for not taking medications that can shorten your life.  Yes, it should be presumptive but now that you have you have records you should be able to reopen your case due

Yes, it should be presumptive but now that you have you have records you should be able to reopen your case due to new and material evidence 38 CFR 2.501.  This would reclaim your original date if the VA accepts the evidence which they should.  Reopening your case should preserve your effective date.  The following site explains it pretty well.

Good luck and let us know who it works out.

      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,
    • This is the latest Compensation & Pension (C&P) Clinicians Guide dated 20180719. The only other one I've seen is dated 2002, including the one on this website and the VA website. I got this from my claims agent, who got it from the VA.

    • 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.
