  • 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

Status update Prayers requested


Question

  • Admin

I've been exposed to COVID and I am waiting for my test results. Currently I feel fine. My niece Amanda, her husband Joe and the two kiddos all got it. Its bad, but not bad enough to go to the hospital. Please pray for us. We are set to close on our house Dec 30/31st and we are hoping this will not jeopardize our closing date. It's a struggle financially since Joe doesn't get paid while he is out of work. We all are trying to stay positive, but a few prayers sent our way would be appreciated.

Hello Tbird! I just finished praying for you and your family. You are going to be just fine. I know this for a fact because Isaiah 54:17 states that "No weapon that is formed against thee shall prospe

I tested negative.

I will mention this as to prayers when we have our church Zoom prayer meeting tomorrow Tbird, and will begin praying for all of you and anyone here who has been affected by the Covid..and praising God

Great News!!! It's not over, though. You/we have to be diligent. Keep at home as much as possible and social distance if you have to interact with people. People with compromised immune systems have to be super careful.

Hope that vaccine works!

I am in the Prayer Warrior group at my church. God hears every prayer!

( And He gave me the wisdom to succeed in my VA claims)

The VA is developing a plan for disbursement of the vaccine, when they get it . When I get more info on that I will post it.

      Hello. I’m new to the hadit community.  I had 2 of my C&P TDIU exams last week. Both Dr’s stated that I am unable to work. Based on C&P for PTSD-MST, do I have a solid case to win my TDIU? I have been unable to work since 2015 due to my SC disabilities and am currently at 80%. I’ve attached what Dr. wrote below. Thanks 
      “Vet continues to be overwhelmed by stress and anxiety when she is outside of her home. Working in an environment with others, especially dominant males, would be very intimidating and likely overwhelm her ability to function effectively. Vet reports difficulty focusing issues even when she is at home. She has attempted to do tasks such as reviewing records, but due to her poor focus and I attention, she is unable to effectively complete the task. Furthermore, her insomnia and nightmares as well as fatigue related to her back pain cause her to be consistently tired throughout the day. In 2015, she attempted to go back to work as a school nurse (which is a relatively low stress nursing position) and was NOT able to complete the job, eventually quitting.”

      I am running behind on a bunch of things and this is the first opportunity I have had to wish Ms. Tbird best wishes on her upcoming move.  Buck is right...take it easy and don't push it.
      Stay safe and careful.

      Just was wondering if this could be made a forum to discuss how one would qualify other then being OEF/OIF veteran and being 100% disabled?

    • I already get compensation for bladder cancer for Camp Lejeune Water issue, now that it is added to Agent Orange does it mean that the VA should pay me the difference between Camp Lejeune and 1992 when I retired from the Marine Corps or do I have to re-apply for it for Agent Orange, or will the VA look at at current cases already receiving bladder cancer compensation. I’m considered 100% Disabled Permanently

      The 5, 10, 20 year rules...



      Five Year Rule) If you have had the same rating for five or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless your condition has improved on a sustained basis. All the medical evidence, not just the reexamination report, must support the conclusion that your improvement is more than temporary.



      Ten Year Rule) The 10 year rule is after 10 years, the service connection is protected from being dropped.



      Twenty Year Rule) If your disability has been continuously rated at or above a certain rating level for 20 or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless it finds the rating was based on fraud. This is a very high standard and it's unlikely the rating would get reduced.



      If you are 100% for 20 years (Either 100% schedular or 100% TDIU - Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability or IU), you are automatically Permanent & Total (P&T). And, that after 20 years the total disability (100% or IU) is protected from reduction for the remainder of the person's life. "M-21-1-IX.ii.2.1.j. When a P&T Disability Exists"



      At 55, P&T (Permanent & Total) or a few other reasons the VBA will not initiate a review. Here is the graphic below for that. However if the Veteran files a new compensation claim or files for an increase, then it is YOU that initiated to possible review.



      NOTE: Until a percentage is in place for 10 years, the service connection can be removed. After that, the service connection is protected.



      ------



      Example for 2020 using the same disability rating



      1998 - Initially Service Connected @ 10%



      RESULT: Service Connection Protected in 2008



      RESULT: 10% Protected from reduction in 2018 (20 years)



      2020 - Service Connection Increased @ 30%



      RESULT: 30% is Protected from reduction in 2040 (20 years)

      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,
