    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

Do you mean 30% SC for Pell Grants?

I think they have that criteria-not sure-

Chap 35 for her would depend on 100% P & T SC-

Does your state have any special educational benefits for children of Vietnam Vets or anything for children of all disabled vets regardless of where they served?

It certainly can pay off to check into any potential form of financial aid possible for the child of a veteran-I say child but I believe these types of aid go over age 18-otherwise they wouldnt make sense.

I am now wondering what form you mean that VA lost-

I guess I thought you meant a Pell Grant form.

Berta - I guess I have to back up to beginning - I filed claim VONAPP Jan 06 -recieved 100% grant sc Aug 06 - retro to Jan06 -the letter of Aug06 stated " We couldn't pay for {daugter's name} because she is over 18. We are enclosing a VA FORM 21-674 - Request for Approval of School Attendance, for you to complete if {daughter's name} is in school. We can only pay dependents between ages of 18 and 23 if they are attending an approved school."

This is the form I sent in although they did not sent me the21-674 - I downloaded it from VA website - they sent 21-674b School Attendance Report - which was also completed and sent too. In addition sent in VA Form 21-686c Declaration Of Status Of Dependents, which they had attached.

I assume my daugher's attendance at Univ of Miami is an approved school - I would think so! It cost a mint - she has scholarship but not full - but still its very costly to attend - she is doing well there. That ed benefit would really help out though. That's about all I can tell you - I do appreciate ur advise also.

I think I know whats up now! I went to VAMC for checkup on Monday - I then saw DAV at VAMC - they called the RO number and I turned it over to DAV - I wanted to know when my daughter would get ed benefits - after all was said and done I found out that they were behind by a year, but the news was they sent me the money. I didnt know this and I thought the money went to dependent - I guess they think I will use it myself - I assure u - truthfully, any money received for my daughter will go directly to her bank account - I see now how the VA thinks about this - wish the money would go directly to dependent - I never knew it wouldnt till I was told this - even when I had called VA previously - didnt know from websites either - I understand that they suspect intentions - but I wish they would change their laws so it didnt look like a scam - I guess this is the way things go but dont like it - I just want my child to have a good education - we have kept up so far with expenses but its hard to do - I swear anything for her education goes to her education. Hope this info helps somebody.

Sorry: I meant the VA will send me the money - since I have nothing yet.

Frank- did you see real cash money from the VA in your checking acct or mail box or is this what they said-that you Would 'get' the money-

and did they specifically mean Chap 35 refund of tuition?

This seems bizarre to me because the VA reminded me that my baby was an adult US veteran and they would not deal with my questions about her Chap 35 at all- so I would assume that when she begins her Masters she pays the tuition so she sure gets the VA check- not me-

then again-was your daughter in college prior to turning 18?

I guess in that case they would send you the money-up to her 18th birthday ???

weird-

    • 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,

      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.
