    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

Question

Hi Everyone

I filed a claim for SSD related to my back rating, I filed it on the 12th of August and I was contacted by a company called VES on Friday. They told me that the VA contacted them because they want to expedite my claim. I wanted to know has anyone had this done before and why would they want to expedite the claim, not that I'm complaining because that's a good thing it's just I've never heard of that before.

Scooter This is nothing unusual; VES is one of the handful contractors the VA has to do C&P's. It is not something special. They have done more of these contract jobs especially this year due to some of the VA facilities being limited. Be there on time and don't have your "best" day in terms of symptoms. Don't exagerate, but don't push thru pain either.

Thanks for the response, they told me that they will be calling me next week to schedule a televisit with a dr.

      Good afternoon to every one, my question as follows after c@p exam completed how much long will it be to get answer will it take to get up or down? Does it usually take 6 months to get 100 percent temp disability for surgery? I had back surgery back in July and I am still waiting, yes it is service connected,

      Hey all,
       
      Bit of an update.  I have been SC for PTSD at 30% and tinnitus at 10%, denied for two other conditions and my TBI claim was "deferred".  I had my TBI C&P about a month ago and in the process I've recieved two notifications on va.gov that two more exams have been scheduled.  Well I called VES today after not hearing from them about any new appointments for two weeks and the rep on the phone told me that there was no new exam requested...that the VA actually just "kicked back" the C&P two times.  They said they are "reworking" the exam.  Anyone experience this before but not get scheduled for a new appointment?

      I have been waiting for C@P exam for a while, I called the VA and they told me to QTC. When I called QTC about scheduling my exam they told me there is only one physician with in a 100 miles of me, and they have to call them to see what is is open.  Of coarse QTC had to leave message to the physician for call back, QTC asked me to call back in a week. Which I did, same thing happen, oh ya week three same thing.  I call the VA and asked them if this is normal. one physician in 100 miles and I live in Boston, and the physician must not need the work because of no call backs. Has any one had this problem, if so how do you end up solving it?  Oh so the C@P exam is about my Lumbar fusion I am asking for 100 percent temporary while  I recover, yes I have been out of work for two months now.
       
      Thanks Ken

      While I wait for an appeal on some other matters I am starting a bilateral sciatica claim secondary to arthritis in the lower back (just got service connected for the back).  I have to get some documentation together, but I am wondering what to expect in a c&p for sciatica.  It is pretty unpredictable when the worst of it will happen so I’m not sure how the exam will go, or what the doc will look for.

    • 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,
