    • All my bank info is up to date and it's set to let me know when money hits just frustring when it was at the prep for notice then moves back. Hopefully soon it will do something 
    • the  Dr can do some testing, like testosterone in the testicals, and brain,. but its not conclusive.there are  many variables, everyones different. Its hard to get "randy", if you have things weighing heavily on your mind. the  smk is called... " loss of use of creative organ". or something to that effect. Im surprised the Va isnt putting penis bands on people yet, and making them watch  erotic movies to measure arrousal. heck nothing surprises me anymore. Viagra does help, some people.. the VA has cut the pills down to 2  a month. if you cut them in half, you can halfway get off 4 times a month!!! hurahhhh. hurahhhh..  . I guess its ok for the VA to waste billions on bullshit,     but when it comes to a vet having congical happiness, theyve decided you get 4 shots at it a month..  ,

    • Load, your at 90%, is your Direct Deposit account set up to Txt/Email you in real-time, regarding all Financial Transactions? Prior to 01/03/2016, I would have agreed with Buck, regarding E-Ben being less than accurate as to Future Completion Dates. I've had (2) Awards in 16, E-Ben posted updates at Least (2) weeks before the Retro Hit. In years past, Retro Hit about a min of 3 weeks before your Decision Letter Arrived, sometime after that, E-Ben was updated to reflect your New Award Info. It definitely appears to me, somebody at E-Ben finally got their Sierra, Hotel, India, Tango together. Semper Fi
    • Thank you for responding.

      All of the original claims were denied of “The evidence does not show a current diagnosed disability” with the exception of the chronic sinusitis, which stated there was no event in service. He claimed no problems even though over 100 pages of civilian medical records for treatments showed otherwise.

      In May of 2012 I sent back the following letter:
        Notice of Disagreement (NOD)
      Dear Sir/Madame: I am in receipt of your letter of 11 April 2012. In that letter you have denied my application for a disability
      rating I claimed 16 AUG 2011.

      Please accept this letter as my Notice of Disagreement (NOD) with your decision.

      My reason for this NOD is an incomplete CP exam was performed along with the examiner not reviewing multiple current civilian medical records and diagnoses.

      I request a Decision Review Officer Process (DRO) appeal and I request a personal hearing.

      I never did get a personal hearing but it turns out they did send a packet in Dec 2012/Jan2013.  I did not remember this until I went through my files. Sorry about that  - I really didn't think I had received back anything.  Dangit - It really gets frustrating when you can't recall a lot of things.  This head injury really screwed up my life!

      It turns out they did send me a request additional data and I sent in a Statement in Support of Claim.  I also did find a copy of the VA Form 9 requesting a hearing but it was only to appeal two of the original issues, and out of that the TBI was eventually rated. 

      I don't recall getting a docket number.

      SO - false alarm.  Again, my apologies for not recalling any of this.  The only thing I need to worry about is having my existing ratings reversed, which I hope is safe because of all the documentation, including VA doctor letters.  If anything, the TBI residue is more severe than what they rated and only gets worse every year.

Cue For Ptsd Claim?

27 posts in this topic

Question-

I had put in a claim for PTSD in early 08 and the claim was closed in Oct 08 for no supporting documents. I am a combat vet with a Combat action ribbon etc. I recieved a letter that stated they needed more evidence and what not. I sent in letters from fmily memebers and friends I was in the service with supporting statements of PTSD. I never was diagnosed with PTSD by the VA. In that fact I never went to the doc at all. After I sent in info About a month later I recieved another letter asking for more documents. I replied with no more information to provide. Shortly after I was denied for PTSD.

I currently have a open claim for PTSD again and was diagnosed by the psych with PTSD. Now just waiting to a rating from VBA. My question is should my claim from 08 been closed so quick and should they have gave me a C&P before a decision? I am trying to see if what I should do and if this a CUE. Also is there anyway to get back dated to that time since I was diagnosed with PTSD for this claim? Thanks

No c and P exam. That tells me that they avoided giving you the exam because it would have resulted in a diagnosis. Fair play isn't it.

Of course proving that would be near to impossible.

I would wait until you are awarded then I would discuss it with an attorney like VetLawyers. Sounds like it can have some substance but Cues are a very strange thing with a lot of hurdles to jump over.

The VA doesn't usually schedule a C & P exam for claims with no evidence or diagnosis. In this case they were correct in denying your claim. If you nowhave evidence and can link it to your service then you will get approved .

Claire I am 10% for tinnitus and 0% for bilateral compartment syndrome. Was denied for hearing loss in 05. Going to reopen claim and get another audiogram.

NSA here is the funny thing. Like I posted below I have a open claim as we speak for PTSD again. I was given a C&P by the VA and never requested it. They called 4 days prior to appt. I would have thought they would have done the same for previous claim. I have a Combat action ribbon and campaign medals for AO's I was in.

I am working with a rep from DAV and he looked into it slightly and said it was denoed for no evidence. Well no crap I knew that. He kinda acted as if it wasnt worth going back to see more info on case and see if there was CUE. Just thinking that if I am diagnosed now with it I had it beofre so they should back date monies owed. I know this is far from easy but makes since to me. Thanks for replys.

Ok,, here is the straight poop as cI see it. The first order is to get your claim for PTSD approved now. You can do research for a possibly CUE later, but the most important matter at hand is to follow thru by requesting a copy of your records and the C & P report. The C & P report will tell you where you stand on your claim.
