In home ILP assessment questions presented to me



Today I received a listing of 82 questions  from the guy who was assigned to do my ILP in home assessment.  He also wanted me to list all my disabilities  explain what each  condiiton means ,  and provide the rating.   The last part should already be available to him thru the va. Anyway  has any one receive or answered these types of question for an ILP.  I think some questions are too personal for this program. I think these are his questions, they are not on a va form. I think they should be asking questions that actually pertians to the veteran, not a listing of generic questions, which do not apply to all veteaans.   See the attached. I tried to block out the guys name and number if you can still read them please ignore them. If you print them out, plese blacken out the name and number again, before you pass it around. Anyway  I do not want this to come back and haunt me.

I should have my ILP assessment coming up as well. I will provide my results with you as well. So far the only thing I have done is the initial questions on the ILP assessment. They were generic question rating your condition from 4-0 and explain the difficulty from 3 and below. I just read the assessment questions and I personally don’t like the financial questions as I find that to be intrusive.

I have withdrawn from the ILP. here is a copy of the mesage I sent to the counselor who was to do the assessment.



I have decided to withdraw from the ILP.

I am a private person, I keep my information private.

This listing of questions is too invasive concerning my finances,  other personal information, and family information.

I never expect to have to go thru such an assessment,  having to  invite a stranger into our home , and I simply will not do it.

When I signed up for this program,  I don’t remember anyone saying I would have to do such an assessment.

As far as I am concerned this is another way for the VA to discourage  veterans from signing up for an ILP, that they really don’t want to provide.

Cancel the Friday assessment,  I have sent an email to the VA telling them I quit the program.

I wonder what would happen if you just answered the questions you didn't want to answer with something like Not Relevant or something like that and only answered the questions you wanted to.

I asked my counselor  the same question, in fact I sent her a copy of the questions. she called me and told me that while she though they were asking for stuff that made no sence she  indicated these are the types of questions that are always asked. She indicated the person doing the home study has the authority to ask any questions. Apparently the va doesn't have set questions. This is another example of what is wrong with the ILP . when veterans are not treated the same, from RO to RO. This has been a big problem with this program for a long time.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    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
