Get on e benefits and where it says file upload a NOD Form VA Form 21-0958 fill it out be sure to put your claims # on it and why you disagree attach any medical evidence you have to support your claim and push send...also you may want to file a paper copy to the claims intake center,always make copies and anything you send VA get a certified sign return receipt.
e benefits has got a lot better uploading forms they will let you know they recieve it/but to make sure they get it send in a paper copy NOD too!
its just faster with e benefits.
My brother served at Tyndall Airforce Base in the United States Airforce. He now has Young Onset Parkinsons Disease. We have no family history of this in our family. I started to research causes of his condition, this led me to finding out about environmental contaminates and Parkinsons. I came across disturbing information about Tyndall AFB and contaminates of concern noted by the EPA at this post. It is a Superfund site. I was sickened by what I found. Numerous contaminates, complete negligence and disregard by Tyndall AFB, etc. I am now helping my brother to file for service connection. I have compiled overwhelming evidence (pictures, test results, letters to Tyndall from EPA, news reports, scholarly articles, known medical opines on the matter, etc.) from reputable sources. I am continuing this effort by going on sites, such as this one, trying to get firsthand accounts and knowledge from anyone who has served at this instillation, and mainly, has acquired motor system disorders, due to environmental contaminates. But I am open to any knowledge about any disorder acquired from environmental contaminates at this instillation. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts about this topic as well. Thank you for your time and effort in regards to this matter.
Good evening all.
I can't seem to find a convincing answer on the topic.
I receive my rating a few months ago and strongly disagree with some of the decisions.
I was on Ebenifits and it appears that i could appeal the process on the site. However, i'm not sure if this is the same process as filing an NOD.
Can someone please help clarify the difference.....
All claims filed are considered as seeking the maximum rating for that condition by the VA anywhere from 10% for tinnitus to 100% for PTSD)
So your C&P is to see if you are rateable for a higher rate for your PTSD. If you included any mention of unemployment as due to your Agiraphobia- a Totalyl Disabled/Individual Unempoyability will be considered TDIU pays at the 100% rate but is 'temporary' as in once you are able to work again they stop paying that rate and you are brought down to your actual rate (in your case 70%)
Not sure if it was answered (the pop up and pop over ads on this site are incredible!)
The questionnaires sounds like it was the 'Beck Depression Inventory'
The GAF and the words 'Moderate to 'Severe' wont be factored into your rating (these words don't appear in the CFR)
The C&P exam has 3 important parts for rating a disability
The Nexus "at least as likely' or better points to service connection
The functional impact statement: deficient in 'some', most', or 'all' areas
And the symptoms checked
Such as depression, sleep impairment, confusion, memory, etc.
(oddly enough I too have RLS and my last C&P examiner didn't checkmark it- do don't worry if it doesn't show up on yours)
