  • 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

The ROs are out of work- File Claims!


Question

I'm getting IMs saying they have nothing to do. They even finished my claim.

The VA isn't going to downsize, they'll have them do something.

My fear is that 'something' will be what's been tried before- Re-hash old claims.

So file.

The VA is too good at having a 2 hour job take a year to ever be "out of work".  They proved that with the "certification" of BVA appeals.  It was a half hour job that took 2 years.  With inefficiences like that, they will never be out of work.

The way that veterans are filing appeals, that is just pure job security for the VA. Even the honest mistakes can take years to resolve.

Just checked on va.gov. After being in their system for about three weeks, my HLR/CUE is still saying 4 to 5 months for completion.

Perhaps idle employees are the ones who do not not pull from the national work queue.

Checking on status for your claim  on Va.gov is pretty much a waste of time. They just aren't going to provide any insight as to what's happening. To improve upon the info available would be, in the VA's point of view, counterproductive. The more insight provided, the more questions that will be asked by the veterans. So, they aren't saying anything. I have one currently in HLR; the very nature of that type of claim should result in a fairly quick decision. I mean, you don't provide anymore new evidence. Just review it! It is possible that some will require an addition C&P because current info is outdated or missing, but not all cases. It's more than likely going to take around 100 days, not 125 for most so they show improvement on their goals, but HLR is definitely one lane that could improve turn around time.

@GBArmy Yeah, the web site provides a very vague status.

You are right about HLRs. I had to submit an HLR because the VA failed to process my CUE correctly (ignored the existing evidence that was described in my CUE motion).

      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.
