  • 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

Supplimental claim closed


Question

Three weeks ago I sent in new and relevant evidence to the VA to support my claim increase for a single disability via my VSO. I had Dr. notes, a Private dr. filled out DBQ, and VA Dr. notes...  I just received an update on va.gov saying my case closed and to contact my VSO for further details? I have an email sent to my VSO as of a few minutes ago. does that seem a little to fast?

Sounds like it did go in but call the VA and ask if those records are in your file. They should be able to see them.  Buy yourself some cheap insurance from the USPS next time.  Walk down to the

Dodger I feel sorry for you. But this is a perfect example of why so many of us say stay away from a VSO. I mean, what could be the possible excuse?  What makes you think he won't screw up or just do NOTHING for you again? If the VA hasn't made a decision yet, you can still submit if it wasn't a FDC. It will just needlessly delay.

GBArmy nothing makes me think he wouldn't screw up again. He would not call me, even after I asked him to, only email. He Promised me this time he would send in everything. I think he did actually do his job this time because QTC called me for a C&P exam (which I talked about in a different post) and they did have my civilian Dr. DBQ and notes from my Dr. this time.

QTC is where you would want to go for a third-party C&P exam. All my buddies who had a QTC exam got service-connected for their disability.

I was sent to an LHI C&P exam, and the NP outright denied me.

Hucast21 I understand that we just can offer opinions based on our own personal experiences and what we have learned. But, just as I have learned that MOST VSO's aren't going to be very good, I never say ALL VSO's aren't good. Because all people are different. We just have to search them out and find a good one if we want their services. I believe that holds true for the VA contractors also. Just like VSO's, there are going to be good contractor examiners and then, some not so good.Certainly, we can say the same for C&P's done directly at the VA. Sometimes we get a good one, sometimes not.From my experience, it really doesn't mean that one particular contractor, LHI, VES, QTC, whoever is going to any better, or any worse, than the others. I had a C&P at LHI and the examiner was very fair. I just don't think we should say so and so is a slam dunk for one way or another. IMHO.

      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.
