I am on temporary 100% disability due to prostate cancer. I had my prostate removed. But several weeks before my first visit back to my doctor, I was given a re-evaluation by the VA. There has been no change in the rating. That was 7 months ago Prior to being diagnosed I had a 60% rating for combat realated injuries.
My question is after I am revalued again what can I expect my rating to be.
Hello Jim. I’m a disabled vet with a temporary 100% rating for PTSD, Anxiety, Major Depressive Disorder w/night terrors with an effective date of 02/13/2012. I have documentation from the VA that I will be re-examined in February of 2020. I see a psychologist monthly for therapy sessions and a Psychiatrist every other month for medication management. I’m on 5 different medications. The issue or question I have is I don’t see the VA for any of my mental health issues.
I was on board the USS TICONDEROGA CVS14 aircraft carrier from 1971 to 1973 and was on Yankee Station our aircraft flew into North Vietnam are we Eligible for Disability?
Probably not but you can apply to be sure.
