100% Perm & Total & Needing To File For Smc

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new to this site and am here hope to find help w/my claim as the VA/VBA will not help me. I am aware I can finish filing things myself so that is what I would like to do.

I am out of AF on MEB/TDRL for PTSD, Fibromyalgia, Migraine HA's. combined compensable at 80% but can only draw 75% under title 10 chptr 61 as I have only 7yrs 2mnth `5days of AD service. I also had to waive that as I am unable to draw concurrent receipt unless congress passes laws in Nov 2010. GOD willing. My PTSD is Combat Related and am going through TDRL eval currently and having Migraine HA's and TBI that I have had since 04 but never examined nor identified while in AD after head blow in Iraq 04 granted the combat related honors as well. As this will affect the CRSC that has come out now. I currently have 90% rating w/VA for CRSC.

I am 100% T&P w/SMC (K) for ED and 90% combat related according to VA.

My ED was caused by hypogonadism which caused complete atrophy of the Testies which caused ED but I only recieved SMC(K) even after one of the current 11 condtions I am rated for is complete atrophy of the testies. And CFR states that if ED is caused by Hypogonadism and or Atrophy of Testicles, then SMC (L) should be granted for the ED. How do I fix this?

Also, I am needing to file for A&A, housbound, and possibly other SMC's as I am currently unable to live on my own due to my conditions. I do not yet have any one condition rated at 100%, I currently have 11 conditions granted/rated out of over 60 diagnosed medical conditions. The VA rushed my case, did just enought to get me 100 P&T and called me up, and told me I had maximum benefits and there was no need to continue filing other conditions as I am maxed out at 100% P&T.

I have been issued canes, diabetic shoes for my feet as the atrophy in the feet is so bad now I cannot wear sock without feet feeling like on fire.

I could use some help with paper work, even just form numbers, where to get them as I cannot get them at the VA(will not give them to me, they don't want me to file)

Thnx to all who step in to help.

Welcome. Here is a link to VA forms. I think the one you will be most interested in is the form 21-4138, Statement in Support of Claim. Since you already receive compensation from the VA, you can submit a new claim with just this form and any records you want to attach. Just state clearly in the comments that you are submitting a claim for....whatever. Send it to your assigned VA Regional Office, and the VA will then contact you telling you what you need to provide to support the claim.

http://www4.va.gov/vaforms/

Do you have a Veterans Service Organization to help you with the claims? The American Legion, DAV, VFW, MOPH, etc. offer free help, and most counties have a veterans service office that could be some help, too.

Good luck.

      If you are new to hadit and have DIC questions it would help us tremendously if you can answer the following questions right away in your first post.

      What was the Primary Cause of Death (# 1) as listed on your spouse’s death certificate?

      What,if anything, was listed as a contributing cause under # 2?

      Was an autopsy done and if so do you have a complete copy of it?

       It can be obtained through the Medical Examiner’s office in your locale.

      What was the deceased veteran service connected for in his/her lifetime?

      Did they have a claim pending at death and if so what for?

      If they died from anything on the Agent Orange Presumptive list ( available here under a search) when did they serve and where? If outside of Vietnam, what was their MOS and also if they served onboard a ship in the South Pacific what ship were they on and when? Also did they have any major  physical  contact with C 123s during the Vietnam War?

      And how soon after their death was the DIC form filed…if filed within one year of death, the date of death will be the EED for DIC and also satisfy the accrued regulation criteria.

    • 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.
