  • 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

@Joey Ross I just had my HLR informal conference call and asked about this. They said HLR's are worked in the order in which they were received. Mine was received by the VA in April 2020 and is estima

They are doing stressor verification

Seems odd.  Stressor verification is usually done prior to any exams being ordered for PSTD.

Let me check with my fortune teller.  She says your claim will be completed between one month and the next 12 years, with the most likely being in the next six months.

@Joey Ross I just had my HLR informal conference call and asked about this. They said HLR's are worked in the order in which they were received. Mine was received by the VA in April 2020 and is estimated to be completed this week. It looks like they are running around four months. A couple of other HLR posts within the past month are showing the same.

Of course, if the VA is having to request records from somewhere, perform new C&Ps, etc..., that would likely cause a delay.

If you are in a provably desperate situation such as homeless, terminally ill, etc... you can ask the VA to escalate your HLR.

I just had one completed that was just about 4 months old old this month, so 4 seems to be average right now. Their target for HLR is supposed to be 125 days, so that fits as well.

Based on what you posted, I had a feeling that is what happened. They do seem to be turning them around pretty quickly. I had a C&P on a different claim recently and it took them about one week to issue a decision, but that was on a supplemental. I don't see why they would do anything different on a HLR. After all, when you have a HLR that requires a C&P, it gains elements of a supplemental (i.e. new evidence = the C&P exam). I hope they find in your favor.

      I have no time to look at your case.  Its probably time I withdraw as your power of attorney, you are at 100 percent.  I am not willing to continue on your case.  You should go ahead and keep your claims open and go through with the C&Ps.  I will send in my withdrawal notice.
      im glad I didn't write that withdraw letter until he informed me why what the F... I understand I hounded him daily about issues of my claim for two years but just ask me to stop being my attorney not ask me to close all my claims!!!

    • 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.
