Topic VA Disability Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

Hi all. First post here.

Does anyone here have a loved one who was granted a VA disability due to their PD? My husband was given his disability last week and is in the process of getting his status upgraded to 100% disabled, and I could use some guidance as to what to expect from someone who has been dealing with the system.

Many thanks!

My husband is not disabled, but today I receive an email from the Michael J Fox Foundation about the successful fight for “Blue Water” Veterans’ benefits. Try Googling it. Lots of good information there. Good luck!

If you are not aware, DOD facilities have been granted to disabled vets and caregivers.

Granted, this benefit is not directly related to healthcare -- but may offer something that may not be available normally -- depending on location.
