Love your site! I was browsing online and found some info about how to increase your social security by $1,200 a year if you are a vet. I am already 100% disabled by social security and also 100% disabled by the VA, but my social security disability is not service related.
Would I still qualify for this?
Thank you for all you do, the veteran community appreciates this!
Most of all that is automatic. You usually don't need to do anything.
I came across your website and I have a question for you.
I was just recently awarded 100 percent service connection for PTSD with proposed financial incompetency and this really scares me because I don't quite know what they mean.
I have a question regarding filing a claim with Veteran Affairs. I currently receive 20 percent disability for left knee. I’m having surgery on August 12 to replace the knee for degenerative knee arthritis.
Will the VA approve for temporary 100 percent disability. And should I have the VA perform this or my Orthopedic Surgeon?
A quick question, concerning, DIC. If a veteran is Rated 100% for
eligible for DIC after 10 years??? It says totally disabling, if 100% PTSD is not totally disabling ,, well I just don’t know? I know this guy and he was a medic in 68 in Nam and he is IMHO totally disabled.
My husband is 100% covered under VA Medical. Should we continue to pay for Medicare part B? We are a Triple A member so if we travel we can buy special medical coverage for the trip.
It's a personal choice. I pay for Part B because I like the flexibility it gives me. For example, I didn't care for the VA orthopedic care I was receiving so I used a civilian surgeon with my Part B. I paid a small copay and I was finished with my treatments before VA could even line up my appointment.
