    • Thank You Ms berta Well I go in tomorrow (8-31-16) to see what they found out?...little nervous, but I'm thinking its just some type mouth sore and not that old nasty word Cancer...keeping a good Attitude.

    • IMO EXPERT try this guy I think he is still 5 -6 hundredth very detail imo  very quick return http://cliffordvocationalservices.com/about-us/
    • PTSD Diagnose needs to come from a VA Dr , MH  psychiatrist...I don't think they will take a Private Dr for the PTSD dX? IF THIS IS A SPECIALIST DR in the field of psychiatric evaluations  then maybe? not so sure?  Take most of your medical records & STR's  any unit reports ..ect,,ect,,with you to the exam...stressors take  CIB if you have it?  if not then something of record with your name on it puting you in a location hostile enemy territory in fear for your life...you may need them? unit and location from Nam.  if you have a CIB or combat ribbon on DD-214 then your stressor's is waived. organize them the best you can/ because some times the VA don't send all the records of evidence to the examiner..just be honest is the main thing  be sure you can back up what you say. if this goes South  then you can NOD the decision.   work with the VA MH Dept  get therapy/counseling from them for PTSD& Especiallity  a PTSD Dx  it will all be documented ,  if you have a MyHealthyVet Account  then go to your progress Notes make copies of anything that will help your claims.  you can use it as evidence. ITS PROBABLY TO LATE NOW THO....Good Luck at your C&P As for as what to say just answer his questions honestly and let him know your in treatment ,add lay statements from your spouse  your change in behavior after you got back home  ect,,ect,,,  , however a PTSD Dx needs to come from a VA Phyistrist ..They don't accept a private PTSD dx this is PTSD probably going to be denied for that reason.

Is Subsistance Retroactive?

4 posts in this topic

I am rated 80% and just met with Voc Rehab and was told I qualify. I am already in school (started last June) and they are fine with the program I am in. I have 2 questions that I can not find answers to so any help would be appreciated.

1)Is my subsistance retroactive back to June when I started school?

2)The number of credits I am taking varies between 1/2 (6 credits),3/4 (10 credits), and fulltime(12+ credits)depending on the classes that are offered for the term. Because this varies do they adjust my payments for each term accordingly or will they just pay me at the lowedt rate regardless of credits (my voc rehab counselor has a copy of intended credits for each term).

I would definitely think the payments would be retro to the date you formally started school.

Havent they sent any Voc Rehab allowance yet to you?

They should adjust the payments as to the amount of credits you are earning.

Maybe the school VA counselor could look into your Voc Rehab status - my husband was on Voc Rehab- his VA counselor at the college made it all go pretty smoothly.

The checks came at ist of month same time his comp check did.

However-I am a Chapter 35 student- although this is different then Chap 31 -I recently had to contact VA Educational department and they are overwhelemed as you can imagine with newly returning servicemen/women getting into these educational programs.

Still- you have waited a long time- with no $$$$ yet?

Did the VA counselor at your school get you a book fee waiver?

I just filed for voc rehab about a month ago (didn't know it was available) and my local VA rep is the one that pushed me to give it a go, the one at school is about worthless IMO. My schooling is paid under Trade Act (I lost me job after 12 years to overseas) and so all I was asking from VA is some help to buy some of the tools I need that Trade Act will not buy. VA will only buy the same tools that Trade act will buy which is of no use to me. There are tools I will need to make a living in this field that are not on the tool list provided by the school so I will use the subsitance check to buy the tools I need.

Got a call this morning from my counselor and was told that the subsistance pay is retro to Sept 09 to the tune of about $3500!
