Help for VA Home Loan

0

I don't see a resource in the sidebar, so I'm asking here.

I'm not a veteran, but I'm a homeowner looking to sell to some kids (<25 years old). Long story short, we bought a house in 2014, moved for work, buying a new house, and rented the old house to family (nephew), he moved in some roommates, 1 of which was in active service. Nephew has moved on, and now it's just his friends (a couple).

We need to sell, and they are looking to buy. They aren't really sure who to contact or what to do to see what they are entitled to, and I don't know either.

Does anyone have a good resource on this?

Thanks!

Disability increase question

0

Hi all, i first received a rating in 2017 for 80% combined. At the end of 2020 I was scheduled for a reevaluation and I received an increase in one of the service connected disabilities in January of 2021. Went from 70% to 100%. I’m wondering if I should have received back pay for this from the date of my service connection for this or is the effective date of that rating now the 2021 date. Thanks for any insight into this.

Help for retirement

0

I got out of the army in 2020, I had a blended retirement plan in a Roth Ira (I think?) And I have no idea what to do with that information. I'm in the Union now, so they have a pension plan, but is there anything I can do with that 5 years I spent in the army? If I can't transfer it, could I withdraw it? If I can transfer it, how can I do that?

(I have 0 idea how to be an adult and it's not even funny how little I am prepared to be a civilian) Any help would he much appreciated

Working Spouse Who has to do it All

0

So, I was medically retired from the Army in 2019. I'm 100% P&T. One of the problems was my lower back and I receive 20% from the VA for that. In the last 3 months my back has gotten worse to the point that I can no longer physically help my wife with the things I normally did around the house like sweep, mop, cook dinner, fold clothes etc.

My lovely spouse works a part time job as a manager for a public school kitchen. Then she comes home and works full time cleaning, getting the kids to places they need to be, and now she's been having to take on the added responsibilities that I can no longer do. She's never cooked and doesn't know how but she's going to have to learn. She has to do a lot and she does it without hesitation and with great love for me but it comes at a cost and it is wearing on her and I'm not certain what to do.

Does anyone have any similar experiences that you'd be willing to offer some advice? Should I bother to let the VA know that my back has gotten worse or does it matter since I'm already 100% P&T? Thanks for any input or advice you have. God bless.

Board of Veterans’ Appeals Wait Times

0

Does anyone know what the wait time is on the Evidence Submission route? When I check my claim it says I was put in line about 21 months ago and gives no more information. I looked at the BVA website and it just says how many claims they have looked at this year. Thank you.

MEB Help/Advice

0

Bottom-line: MEB starts tomorrow. What should I expect? I haven't been assigned a PEBLO yet. Since I'm considered active duty (RC AGR), I am in a weird position. I'm an E7 with 15.5 years military and 140922 TAFMS. Any help would be appreciated!!!

Detail: In 2019 I took a quick trip to a meeting with our HQ staff on a little military a/c. The pilot didn't have enough gas to land at my airport, turn off the plane, and then turn it back on again to continue to their next drop-off for the O6s. They "lowered the prop" and told me I could get off the plan (only E onboard of course). The problem was they didn't lower it enough because the propwash blew me out of the plane and down the stairs. Immediately did a LOD and saw a doc. Swelling in my back prevented my doc from seeing anything on X-rays so they recommended rest and to come back if I had more pain. Seven months later I returned with radiating pain down my legs/numbness, raidating pain in my arms/numbness, and severe back and neck pain/headaches.

X-rays and MRIs showed four cervical bulging discs, one cervical herniated disc, one thoracic bulging disc, and two thoracic herniated discs. My muscle spasms on the right side have caused my ribs to "slip". This means that two of my right ribs keep dislodging and cause additional pain. I've done PT off and on since 2020. I've had two steroid shots to the spine but I'm allergic to it. I can't lift anything, run, stand or sit for extended periods of time, or even sleep sometimes.

SERE training

0

So here I am long retired and come across the book "Lessons from the Hanoi Hilton", and find myself having a disturbing recall of SERE training events. Is anyone out there that went through SERE and can relate or would be willing to talk with me? Seeking some peers perspective. Thanks

Increasing VA Life Insurance

0

I received my annual insurance policy statement today (VA Form 29-0258) and it reminded me that I'm eligible to increase my policy (I believe) since I have a new SC rating within the last 6 months. I figure with the rate increase, the COLA increase we just received, and my current age (58), that it would be a good opportunity to revisit and increase my VA life insurance.

I can log in to my policy online, but I've not been able to locate how to increase my coverage.

I used to be an IT guy. It shouldn't be this hard. Suggestions?
