    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

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-

Thanks Berta - No I have't gotten anything besides 100% - I can't explain this well I guess - only I am working with the DAV rep now and was told this about that I would recieve any retro - I just want my daughter to get what she needs to completer her degree - she is a junior at UM now - I dont know anything about Masters later - I hope u can just see that this is confusing and frustrating to me.

I am confused too as to what you were told and am having considerable problems with my own vet rep too-

often they dont have a clue- especially on Chap 35 -

I hope the DAV didnt just make this up-

As long as you are 100% P & T- she should be fully eligible for Chap 35 benefits until age 26 at an approved VA school-but -in my case (I am Chap 35 ) they only paid me after they had the tuition payment that I made confirmed via my VA counselor at the school-and that I was in classes for about 2 weeks or more-without a drop-

Can anyone else help here with their Chap 35 experience with their kids?

    • 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.
