@  maxwell18 : (16 November 2014 - 09:04 PM) I Still Have To Bitch About The Navy Hosp Cutting My Meds By 2/3 On My Norco. I Contacted Customer Service Or What Ever You Want To Call It Who In Turn Contacted The Navy Hosp Pensacola Commander Who In Turn Did Nothing. Thanks To All The People That Are Affair Of There Jobs And I Feel That Medical Malpractice Should Come Into Place. I Guess Just Do What Ever They Want To Because They Can, But Don't Give A Sh T For The Vets That Suppose To Being Supporting From All The Military  organizations. This Is Not The Way They Have Been Trained And Promised To Do.

@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

I thought we got a raise in compensation payments this year? I am still receiving the same amount that I got last year. I thought the new rates were effective December 2011. Can someone explain?

I am still receiving the same amount as last year. I guess someone over looked my raise.

Jay. That totally sucks.
I would call the VA up and ask them to tell you what you are receiving monthly. When they tell you ask them what happened to your cola.


Keep me posted.

I look at what a vet getting 70% is getting and what this means is the vet is only 30% able bodied. The 70% vet gets just a very small amount of money since most of those guys have a very hard time working. You only get 40% if you lose a leg below the knee. That is really chump change.

John, that make no sense, because I get 60% for PN on my left leg of course its Secondary. But it still there and if I lost it from the knee down, I would beleive 100% for that. Thats wrong!

Yes, it does not make sense at all. I know that for loss of an eye it is 40% if there are no other secondary conditions. The loss of a leg above the knee is 100% I think. Your PN must include areas above the knee, but I am guessing. Vets often get more for the loss of the lower leg because their are secondary or residual conditions like PTSD for instance or back problems etc. If a vet with a couple of pretty severe conditions gets 90% he gets less than $2000 a month. This means the vet is only 10% able bodied. Unless he gets TDIU he will have one hell of a hard time getting the extra percentage to get 100% which is almost an extra 1000 bucks and many other goodies. If you are a 60%-90% vet there is every incentive to go for TDIU and no incentive not to go for it. The only incentive I can see is for a very young vet who has his whole life ahead of him. Any vet over 40 has every incentive to go for TDIU P&T. The system is perverse. I was 51 when I got 70% and was already on SSD since I had been fired from my so-called career job. I had been disabled for the five years prior but finally gave into nature. I went to voc rehab but the counselor told me I would probably not benefit because of my disabilites and my rate of pay. Nobody would hire me even if I could do the work because of age.

I would like to know what really makes sense at VA. Cdertainly not the way they use VA math or claim they help Vets when they don't?
