  • 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

and the wait goes on and on and on...

I hope the Hadit family is doing ok.  I know fellow Veterans have been waiting on appeals longer than me but I am very disheartened as to how the system "works".  I will keep hanging in and I will never give up.

I just had to vent.

Have a nice weekend.  😀

Waiting is the hardest part Hollie! 

Hi Paul,

You sure got that right.  I am keeping my appeal in legacy and I am a ways into my second year.  Lesson to self:  if my service-connected disease gets worse do not EVER apply for an increase.  Sorry to sound bitter or cynical but that is how I see it.  Plus when I have the RO that I have...it does not help.

Balderdash is the only word I can think of to describe it.

Please do not give up. I have been fighting for over 20 years, and so have many others. Finally, on May 20th, the BVA awarded my 100% P and T. It was a slow process starting with a 10% for 1, and slowly getting others added and higher ratings. I was stuck at 80% for about 10 years with many bad VSO's. Now, I am just waiting for my final decision letter letting me know the effective date and back pay amount. I was informed 2 days ago, it has been sent up for final approval and to expect a letter in next 2 weeks. I am now 50 years old with 4 GROWN children. Did we have struggles due to the VA why yes we did..but never give up...think about our Vietnam veterans who are still fighting. My father died getting ZERO benefits except some medical and meds BUT ONLY due to his cancer. So again...NEVER GIVE UP!!!!!! NEVER!!!!!!!!! You have this site, with many people to help explain things and docs etc.... I found this site too late...but none the less..... its a great site.

      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.
