WOW, and this is GREAT News.....relax and enjoy.Geez, I am surprised it took so long with the FERS...it took my neighbor only 7-8 months after he got FERs .But then again they really low balled him with 10% and as a 20 year retiree, that VA amount is deducted from the retirement check.
He says he gets SSDI solely for the same 10% but has not filed a TDIU claim yet....after about 6 years..or more
I couldnt get him to understand that his TDIU EED, if what he said is true as to SSDI, is the date he files the TDIU claim.....oh well..........................................
Andyman I hear your frustrations I certainly understand them, but please don't give up you have your EED so when you do win that means more $$ for you and for more each month to possibly make you wife happy.
Can you post your Reasons & Bases from your last denial for the S..A. & the MDD.
I am not sur why the NOVA attorneys turn you down?
what is your case built on? what evidence do you have? is this a secondary claim? or Secondary to MDD to S.A.?
You have a DX for S.A. So we know you been Diagnosed for OSA/S.A. Now you need to get it Service Connected...and you don't have any medical records of in service for it correct?
What you may need to do is find a Dr that will do that for you in the private sector...How about Dr Ellis From Okla City with the ''Ellis Clinic'' He does IMO's IME's And he works with veterans that need to have there disability service connected, I think his average cost for IMO'S and impression letters are 300..to 900...depending on how long it takes him but there's been several hadit members use him.
NOD asap and keep fighting don't give up!
Don't let the VA WIN AND HAVE THERE DAMN WAY! thats what they like.
As bad and stressful and frustrating it is we got to stick together until we win. & You will win my friend
why? b/c you deserve all your well earned benefits buddy.
