    • Is a cancer diagnosis enough by itself to get 100% for TDIU?   I already have 70% SC for other issue since effective date of 2010.  
    • SSDI records are good if they show your disability and inability to work is due solely to service connected disability.  If you get SSDI for things besides VA disability it is bad because the VA will blame all your ills on those documented non-service connected things.
    • Yes, I have been trying to get my father's army records from VA since he was disabled vet.  His records at St. Louis were destroyed in 1973 fire.  The VA is not cooperating with me.  I sent letter to Janesville.   The VA turned my simple request for my father's records into a claim for benefits.  The only benefit I want is to gather evidence for him to get Presidential Unit Citation.    I am dealing with BCMR so I expect no help there unless I can resurrect FDR.  It has been six months.
    • Ok hard copy it is. I requested and received a copy of my full c-file after they denied my first claim (which is in appeal status now) and its over 630 pages long.  Which parts parts do I need to print and resend?   Also, and I feel stupid for asking this, but what exactly constitutes MSR's?  I just want to make sure I have a clear understanding of the term.  Ive got tons of paperwork over the last 15 years and wasn't sure what all is relevant and needs to be sent to VA.
    • Gastone, I understand, but I have had so much disappointment in my life that it helps me to be positive.  I cannot be around too much negative energy, it drains me.  I hope things go well too, I think if they were gonna deny the PTSD, then they would have already, and why send someone for a C&P exam for a secondary condition if they weren't gonna approve or SC the ptsd.  just my opinion, but we shall see.  I am optimistic as of now, if there is a denial, I will be prepared for that. Hell, I wasn't expecting a damn dime, so anything helps. God bless! I will keep y'all posted on here after the C&P

Should I Do Voc Rehab

9 posts in this topic

I'm 40% S/C right now. I was wondering if i should enroll into voc rehab? I haven't worked since the end of 07, ptsd gets the best of me on a daily basis. I honestly don't think it will help me. I've applied for IU, got denied that, but have an appeal in. Any advice?

What could it hurt ?

If you get rejected by Voc Rehab that will help your IU claim. If not you get training and education. That can't hurt.

Ditto on what carlie & John said. Also, if your approved for schooling, they will pay you extra money a month while attending. What's also nice about it is you can get dental care as if your 100%. But like John said, if they think your unemployable, that would help your appeal for TDIU. Either way it'll be beneficial. How are you making it not working since 07, are you on SSDI or retirement?

I would echo the same thing the rest are saying. If you think you can do it go for it. I was in Voc rehab for a couple of years until my health started to go downhill. I was declared infeasible for employment, and like the others said that was a major factor in deciding my TDIU claim. I was 40% like you and was bumped up to 80% based on that. Good Luck.
