Automatically Iu Deferred?

Question

I really keep to myself and don't really post becuase I posted on here one day and someone guy jumped all over me for trying to ask a question about my PTSD claim for sexual harrasement and assult. I was hoping someone can answer a question for me or give me your opionion on the matter if you have been through something similar.

I was 20% SC last year for my Blood pressure and Tinitus. My Back, PTSD and Depression was deferred. It has been almost a year and the system and a source of mine says I was finally rated on the 28th of Jan. The personal Trauma was rated @ 70 and I am rated at a total 0f 80% SC. I recieved a Phone call from Sacramento or Oakland telling me I would be hearing something in 10 to 15 days in regard to my claim. The system is saying the I am IU deferred. I did not apply for IU..don't really know about it and am confused. Is this something that is normally done? .

If your disalilties are severe enough and you are not working, The VA may consider it. Deffered means it has been put off and the IU may have been inferred.

Send in the IU form anyway unless you are working.

I think that what you are trying to say is that the IU (individual un-employability was a claim that was "inferred" not "deferred".

If they are saying that your IU was inferred, then they, the VA, actually "filed a claim", well, they really didn't actually "file" the claim, but they treated your obvious individual un-employability, as a claim for IU.

That being the case and the fact that you are 80%........probably means that you are going to be getting some really good news. It could mean that you are gonna be 100% before long.........it could mean that, but don't spend the money until official word arrives.

By-the-way, I'm sorry about your previous treatment on the hadit.com board. I'm sure nobody meant to discourage you.

Welcome.

Thank you , that makes since. I must have misunderstood the inferred vs. deferred. Maybe the individual on the phone mixed it up, or just my lack of knowlodge on the subject. I just thought deferred was odd since I have not filed any paperowrk or even got the Big envelope in the mail yet. I sit with fingers crossed. It is surprising that they would automatically "file" for me. Thanks again.

CorCor,

I agree with LarryJ's assessment and opinion. One must remember when they post something we are bound to hear a variety of opinions, that is the beauty of having a diverse group of people on this site. Sometimes what is written or the way we may interpret it may not be the way it was intended. We can accept it or ignore it, but that is our choice.

The communication brought forth is by those, who I do believe, have all of our best interests at heart. Sometimes frank information or direct suggestions are not what we want or expect to hear but remember we can use what we want and let go or discard the rest. The VA has had a numbing effect on many but do remember here we do try to find the best for eachother as our commonality of Vets for Vets is to guide us all to a more peaceful time and to a more peaceful place now.

It is a remarkable place here where we can be open, and seek help from such a wide range of personalities. There will be times we may feel we are getting our toes stepped on, but don't let that deter you from further contact...grow and share and let others share in your knowledge and offers of assistance. You ultimately have the choice now, so use it wisely. When one vet suffers we all feel the pain, and when one rejoices we we all feel the joy. May you find the help you need and we will support your endeavors. Good luck to you and your conquests. :D

There are many on board Hadit that are waiting to help you and others. Unfortunately, sometimes people forget what it is like being confused, scared, unsure, or inexperienced. ("EMPATHY": the capacity for experiencing as one's own the feelings of another). Please people, when you reach out a hand to help someone--do it with an open hand, not a closed fist and mind. "CorCor" welcome back!

    • If you are a Veteran, represented by MOPH, you need to know that MOPH is closing down its offices.  This can have a drastic effect on your claim, and it wont be good for you.  You likely need to get a new representative.  

      This station confirms MOPH is closing its doors:

    • Examining your service medical records...
      * First thing I do after receiving a service medical record is number each page when I get to the end I go back and add 1 of 100 and so on.

      * Second I then make a copy of my service medical records on a different color paper, yellow or buff something easy to read, but it will distinguish it from the original.

      * I then put my original away and work off the copy.

      * Now if you know the specific date it's fairly easy to find. 

      * If on the other hand you don't know specifically or you had symptoms leading up to it. Well this may take some detective work and so Watson the game is afoot.

      * Let's say it's Irritable Syndrome 

      * I would start page by page from page 1, if the first thing I run across an entry that supports my claim for IBS, I number it #1, I Bracket it in Red, and then on a separate piece of paper I start to compile my medical evidence log. So I would write Page 10 #1 and a brief summary of the evidence, do this has you go through all the your medical records and when you are finished you will have an index and easy way to find your evidence. 

      Study your diagnosis symptoms look them up. Check common medications for your IBS and look for the symptoms noted in your evidence that seem to point to IBS, if your doctor prescribes meds for IBS, but doesn't call it that make those a reference also.

    • How to get your questions answered on the forum
      Do not post your question in someone else's thread. If you are reading a topic that sounds similar to your question, start a new topic and post your question. When you add your question to a topic someone else started both your questions get lost in the thread. So best to start your own thread so you can follow your question and the other member can follow theirs.

      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.


      Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.


      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.



      Leading to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.



      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?



      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?




      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?


      I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?





      This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

      This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67.
