On post/base access?


allansc2005

Question

Morning folks, 

 

Been a  minute since I've been here, I'm staying busy helping veterans help themselves.

 

That aside, I have some questions concerning a veteran who just got his 100% IU, P&T.

 

Because of his medical conditions, cancer being one of them, this divorced veteran needs to find out if he can legally designate someone to go  to the BX, Commissary.., for him?

 

To get to the point, is there a VA, DOD.., ID card that will allow anyone except a spouse to get access to a base for the purpose of helping this veteran?

 

I already know he can sponsor people to get onto military bases, just stop at the Gate ID section and get them a visitors pass, but how about getting authorization to shop for him?

 

Thanks,

 

Allan

Certain primary caregivers are supposed to be able to get base access. Not sure what makes up the criteria to be designated a primary caregivers, perhaps A&A recipients.

Thanks Vync,

 

This seems to be a very difficult question to get a direct answer on.

The folks at the ID card on base doesn't seem to have the answers, nor does those working at the base Welcome Center.

 

I do know the "rules" to be a primary care giver, and the red tape is a pain in the you-know-what.

 

Have I stumped hadit.com?

With this being so new and not yet in effect, I have a feeling that everyone is like us - waiting for the VA and military to roll out details of how it will work

Vync,

I downloaded and thumbed through the application for a Primary Care Giver, and the conditions, requirements.., are a nightmare!

 

All this divorced, cancer survivor,  100% IU P&T  veteran needs is to be able to designate somebody who can have access to base(s)., do his commissary and PX shopping for him when he's unable to do it for himself, without having to marry someone!

 

Berta, if you're reading this, any suggestions, comments..?

@allansc2005 they are pretty intense for a reason. They really want to be certain that a primary care giver is really a primary care giver.

This example is not directly related to the VA system, but gives an idea of how it works. One of my relatives doesn't work a regular job. Her son was totally disabled at birth and he needs 24x7 care. She applied to become his primary care giver. She had to go through the registration process similar to that one.

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
