How Reservists can get benefits from VA


  • Moderator

From: Berry law firm:


What a Reservist Must Show the VA

Reservists need to show medical treatment when injuries occur while on orders and sustained care for that injury from the time of the event on orders to be eligible for compensation.  As with any VA claim documentation of an injury is key to service connection; however, it is even more critical for Reservists to show the event happened on orders. They must also show that they had to seek continued medical treatment after the drill period that did not resolve the issue and later turned into a disability.

Or, like me, they went to active status after drilling a few times pre-ship, got hurt due to a faulty obstacle during a post AIT training exercise, and then sat around for 6 months waiting for them to decide on a medboard. If you are a reservist active for training, and are injured permanently resulting in discharge the normal active service requirements doesn't apply- for compensation. GI Bill and all the other stuff is subject to a certain number of days active to be eligible.

      I am currently rated at 70% for PTSD and have a gambling addiction due to my anxiety and depression and gambling numbs my emotions but is having a heavy toll on my family and life. 

      I have blocked myself at casinos but online casinos are very easy to access  
      I want to stop gambling and wanted to see if the VA offers this type of support?
      Also, does the VA give ratings on gambling addiction?  I really want to stop but am so depressed. 
      Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

      "If" you are disabled by VA and "do not" have the 10,000 VA life insurance, at no cost to you,  you should get it ASAP, if eligible.  Follow the links to see if you are eligible:
      Also, if you have your 10,000 VA life insurance, its also like a bank account you can draw on.  As an example, if you have had the 10,000 life insurance for 10 years, you could withdraw (that is get a "loan" from your life insurance proceeds) for $1000 or more.  Yes, you would pay interest on the loan, "but" you would never have to pay it back (the amount borrowed, plus interest, would be deducted from the 10,000 upon your death. ) 
      Bottom line:  If you dont have it, get it, and if you do have it, and need money, consider the consequences of borrowing on your life insurance.  It may be a relatively painless way to get money you need NOW vs, after you are gone.  Also, lets say you borrow 1000, 2000, or even 5000 from your life insurance policy, AND you "come into money" 2 years down the road, you can pay it back and restore your family's full life insurance proceeds. 
      "Unless" there was a compelling reason, I would not recommend "cashing in" your life insurance policy.  (A compelling reason may be that you have cancer and not long to live, and you want to use the money). 
      Instead of "cashing in" leave your options open by borrowing the max from your policy.   You have the option of paying it back or not..at your discretion, in your time. 
      VA life insurance sends me a notice each year, around my birthday, as to how much I could borrow, or cash in the policy for.  The cash value of the policy grows each year.  After about 20 years, you can cash it in for the full face value, about 10,000. 
      You can likely do the same with "other than VA" whole life insurance policies, too:  Borrow, or cash it in. 
      In a nutshell whole life insurance is "owned" insurance, while  term insurance is "rented" insurance.  Like a car, if you own it you can sell it, or get a loan on it.  But you cant get a loan on your rented apartment.

      Yesterday, the VA from South Dakota called me, by the way I live in Northeast, to ask me if I went to my last C@P exam with QTC which I did, He told me, he is looking for that information so they can finish my Cervical spine fusion claim, has this happen to anyone else?

      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.
