  • 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

@paulstrgn That's great! My VA only gives six months of supplies at a time. I just set a reminder in my phone's calendar and send them a secure message twice a year. They just send me the supplies in the mail. If you have pets, be sure to ask for the micro filter (usually snaps on top of the regular air filter). They always seem to forget to send me it even though I ask for it up front.

The front desk staff may need to be reminded they have a walk-in clinic (for the dude who came in and needed to get his broken machine replaced). Could be a case of laziness.

I can figure how this could possibly happen UNLESS you realize were talking about the VA! Paul, if your are s-c for SA, then there has to be some remedy. If you are s-c, how can they justify that your

I had emailed the secretary for the director of the HVAMC about being scheduled for November 2020, she called me and said that was crazy. I told her that they told me the reason for the long wait time

I recently broke my CPAP machine (my son and I were horse playing and we knocked off my CPAP machine and broke it). I have been trying to get a new CPAP machine from the Hampton VA Medical Center (HVA

I will need to go into my VA hospital once a year to get the new supplies, they don't mail anything. 

The front desk went and asked someone about this guy needing a machine and was told they could not help him. I really do think it depends on who you talk with to get your machine. If I had not contacted the director’s office at the VA hospital, I would still be waiting on getting scheduled to get a machine. I believe the director’s office is being told by the cpap clinic that there is no backlog when in reality there is. I am assuming someone just does not want their section to look like it is being mismanaged. I come from the school of thought that you let your director know if you are understaffed and that is why there is a backlog. If the director’s office does not want to hear about that at least you have told them what the problem is.

Staffing should never be an issue at the VA hospitals.

Unfortunately it is.  I had a good doctor that was retired and worked at the VA in his retirement.  It seems that they have a huge turnover, I have not had the same doctor for more than two years in Tennessee.  The same for nurses.  Some people who work at the VA appear to want another job elsewhere.  We does what we can with what we have.

I think this is because of the working conditions at the VA. I know my VAMC is rated towards the bottom of the rating scale (this was told to me by a supervisor at the VA RO). 

I am going there in February for dental work since it is now free for me, I just pray they have good dentistist there.

      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.
