    • As Berta noted, its really the information they want that is contained on the form, that happens to have "PTSD" in the title.   There isn't a "Statement in Support of Claim for Stressors, but not PTSD stressors" form yet :)
    • IF you have any saved letters from your wife (vice versa), photos etc that could help, as could your medical records.  Medical records are frequently used to put people in RVN with no other evidence to do so. 
    • Wayne, Buck has been intimating that the VA is cracking down on the SA compensations. Perhaps they feel that folks aren't using the machines and/or tampering with the results. They are ever looking for ways to reduce fraud.  That said, it's about my health. The machine literally reduces my apneas to normal levels. I sleep better, I feel better and many symptoms are improving. My doctor tells me that I will return to very severe OSA without using it. Oh and by the way, my wife will sleep in the same room again. I suppose a yearly visit to the VA with the machine is worth the peace of mind and the compensation.
    • The VA started what is called the National Work Queue.  In theory, claims will stay with the ROJ as much as possible, but may be sent to another office depending on the load there, in an effort to improve timeliness.    In reality, this may not happen.  As a result, your claim has been shifting from one office to the next, depending on the state of the claim, and may be bounced around quite a bit before the claim is completely done.   Appeals are not being worked under the NWQ at the moment.   You can search google for more information on NWQ.
    • EODCMC......I was told to bring my CPAP to VAMC in on my first anniversary date.......doesn't make a lot of sense to me either if all there going to do is extract a chip and replace with a new one. I assume the chip is not easy to locate or retrieve and that they need to insert a new one anyway to insure functionality.  I am assuming you just walk in with the CPAP, they extract what they need and then add a new chip, and you return home with it same day for that night.  Has anyone actually experienced bringing in their CPAP to a VAMC Sleep Study Lab and exactly what takes place there? I doubt they're able to monitor from my home, which is a great advantage for you EODCMC, since they said bring the hardware with me.

Denied

81 posts in this topic

Ok,

for the second time I was denied IU again and told to take my claim to the BVA...Why does the VA keep doing this. I haven't been able to work since 2001 and was retired for the same medical issues by SSD..

I can't understand this.......Tnx

hard to say with such little info you have posted. if you would like some help let us know a few things about your claim. Being denied does not mean you are wrong maybe you have not presented your case well enough.

IU often times is granted or denied based on the info supplied.

That is absurd!

How did the VA consider the SSA award in their denial?

Did they even attempt to get the SSA records?

If a veteran gets SSDI solely for service connected conditions, it is practically impossible for the VA to deny TDIU. (Washington V Derwinski)

SSA provides an independent medical evaluation that is difficult for the VA to ignore.

That is more than likely the case...I also have a cognotive disorder that limits my understanding of the VA system. I don't understand what they tell me and I don't understand how to respond.....

what would you need to see to help me with this.....The latest decision came Saturday......I can't figure this out..I don't know what I am doing wrong and the VSO's both the DAV and the Americam legion don't seem to work for me properly either.....I keep trying....This all started with a discharge (honorable and being treated in the hospital for such for 5 month's while in the service and fighting with the Va for the past 40 years)

Yeah I know Berta, I don't know what the problem is...I am still waiting and was waiting to file the CUE claim we worked on, until I got this assanine decision, again.

That is absurd!
