  • 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

Question

I received my denial letter. In the evidence it doesn't mention SSDI, I sent the award letter with the packet. The SSA states that my knees are the only reason I'm receiving SSDI. I also put in my right knee for secondary because they replaced it when they did my left knee which was SC at the time. They didn't mention the right TKR, they mention palpation and patella tendon, but it has been replaced and that's what I stated on my claim. When I submitted my TDIU I was rated at 30% left TKR and 50% major depressive disorder, I ask for a secondary on my right TKR on a separate claim. They combine both claims on one decision letter. I want to know what route to take on appeal. Shouldn't there be a mention of SSDI in the evidence. Thinking of filing NOD.

We ask veterans to read then read then re-read their rating decisions because a lot of times you can find the information you need to win your claims. With the decisions coming down this is getting ha

My apologies but I do not see this statement.  My eyes are a little bad and if I increase the font I can't read your post.  Where does it show this?  From my point of view it does not appear that this decision even mentions your SSDI. Am I missing something?

      I noticed that BVA currently reviewing appeals are moving backwards. At one time it was August 2017 then June 2017 then May 2017 and now April 2017. Am I the only one that noticed this or is it just me?
      The Board is currently reviewing appeals from April 2017 or older.

      I have hired an attorney and want to know if I or he can receive my file faster? Also has anyone went this route and what is about the average time line for an attorney to submit an appeal on your behalf? Thanks

      Hello everybody 
      I hope everyone is having a Good Friday. 
      Almost 18 months ago I submitted through the vfw a appeal and this went to the board. After reviewing they remanded the decision back to my local VA office. There was evidence that was not included and I guess errors. 
      In the meantime I am working with a provider that’s working a nexus letter. Should be done in the next week. 
      with that in mind I expected the appeal to get denied and it took a while. I figured if I can get a nexus letter and send it then it could be added to the claim. Now that the appeal is back with the local va can I just send this to the intake center or upload ? I would ask my local vfw but their offices are closed up. 
      also about my provider. He is not a doctor but I believe a MSW or CSW with 35 years of working with the dept of VA treating PTSD. I am rated with ptsd. I’m trying to get my sleep apnea rated secondary. I know this is talked about a lot however my question is will the va toss the nexus because the person is not a doctor ? I’d think 30 plus years working with the VA and working primarily with ptsd patients should count for something. He was licensed and just couldn’t prescribe meds. I like to avoid meds altogether and get to the square root of my issues. 
      I appreciate any feedback. I’m glad the board didn’t Just deny me. I think I have a good argument and this nexus will help.

      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.
