This could be a big deal for you, if you need a caregiver.

I was receiving the stipend for three months in 2019 and then it stopped. The VA Manila Clinic stopped funding it.

That sounds like a reduction to me, and, if VA did not follow procedure required to reduce you, you (likely), you should be able to get it back upon appeal.

No appeal. No nothing. Overseas expat veterans do not get a caregiver stipend. I called the WH VA hotine too.

      Hello. The VA Call Center is bad at giving straight answers.  I'm 100%TDIU and need assistance from my husband everyday.  I'm S/C for bilateral post phlebitis syndrome,  iron deficiency anemia, osteoarthritis in the left foot and patella femoral arthritis bilateral in the knees. and fibroids.   So how can I get family caregiver support form to file?  The va website only has caregiver support for Iraq/Iran war veterans and when I called the caregiver support line,  they outright told me that they only cater to war veterans or send people to care for war vets.  I thought that there was a program for us ''regular'' vets whose spouse is caring for them.  Is there such a thing or is it phased out?  Thanks!

      Hello all im new to this forum/blog my husband is rated 100% and we've been denied. We think its because of the lack there of his medical records. We were going to Tuskegee va but ugh they were horrible no returned phone calls would set up an appt for him, didnt really seem to give a crap. we've recently started going to the cboc in Newnan and they've been awesome. Just had his first mental health appt since seeing civilian side, and doc wants to see my husband face to face 1x a week. She asked f he was receiving other benefits like the CareGiver Program and he told her we were just denied and she looked shocked.
       
      Was wondering what you guys thought.... was it denied due to lack of records? should we bring his civilian side paper work? His C&P exams? Please help im in the process of sending appeal letter. 
       
      PS. we only received a letter no exam no nothing just the phone call were i was grilled with how i took care of him and then the letter.

      I'm not sure I'm in the right place but I'm looking for all the help I can. My husband, after 9 years, has decided he needs more help than he's getting. I'm proud of him for making this decision. My questions are, what are good military only ptsd programs? He will be inpatient or do a retreat and doesn't want to leave our home state of NC. I've googled and can't find anything good. Also, does his benefit pay get reduced? He is 100% p&t for tbi/ptsd. Last question is since I'm his caregiver and he will be going away for a month or so, will my caregiver pay be reduced or d/c until he is back? 
      I greatly appreciate all the help!

      Hello All,
      I am currently 80% disabled and wanted to get some info on caregiver service. i have heard that some vets are able to get thier spouse as a caregiver, but i am not sure where to get any info on this. 
      Thanks for your help!

      Hi All,
      Hope everything is going ok.  The more I search (online) the more disillusioned I become.
      The issue I am searching for is "spouse as caregiver for a pre-911 100% SC disabled veteran program"  Does anyone have any info that would point me in the right direction?
      Also, this is for a SCI veteran (myself having MS I recently found out MS is considered a SCI)
      Thank you.

      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.
