From personal experience it is hard and time consuming to get disability. The average uncomplicated claim takes 15 months. The complicated ones take two or more years.
For every one of the fraudulent cases there are probably ten who are turned down, but deserve some assistance.
A few cautions. Many disabilities are not visible to the naked eye. Others allow one to work but at diminished capacity. Service Connected disabilities do not need to come from combat. They can arise from any activity that occurred while in service.
I have reported to the VA and other law enforcement agency's about someone who is literally milking the VA for disability, she is currently 90% and trying to get to 100%. She has tried every way humanly possible to achieve the 100%, even bunions on her feet. She is currently working p/t as a social worker for the VA health in California, she is an alcoholic and a liar.
Can you tell me where I might go to get some justice on this scam.
My sister is among many of the veterans (Vietnam era), who is not getting the help she needs. It seems the VA hands out disability to perfectly capable, able bodies rather than help all the homeless veterans back from combat sleeping outside of the VA in Washington DC.
No investigation is necessary for veterans with alleged "disability" are required to do a follow up with medical or mental health. These veterans receive benefits.
Why aren't the "disabled" veterans receiving money required to do follow ups-especially when they are working and doing activities they claim they can't.
Let's hope the VA starts taking care of our combat veterans, rather than someone who abuses the system-GREED!
This person is someone who believes she is above the law, filing a fraudulent bankruptcy and purchasing a new Harley in the midst, driving 2 Mercedes within a year after....
Filing false insurance claims, etc.
I greatly appreciate your assistance.
Please be careful not to build yourselves up to a frenzied grudge against anyone revealing they are a Disabled Veteran. There's a good chance you'd be wrong.
The vast majority of Veterans have never defrauded the VA system, receiving benefits they deserve under the law for their genuine Service Connected Disabilities.
Please know that very few Veterans actually receive fraudulent benefits. And those who do will likely be discovered eventually. And those who manage to scam the system undetected into their old age still have to wake up and look at their own sorry faces in the mirror every day... Right up until God judges them.
Don't be hasty to judge, folks.
