  1. Can you be at 100% and still working at a full time job? I ask this because it is taking so long for my regular job to get my early retirement pushed through and I am afraid that the VA will actually beat them (my regular job) to the punch and (possibly) award me 100% based upon my seizure disorder while I am still working. I am currently rated at 90% (87.7528) for PTSD 70%, TBI 30%, Migraines 20, and three different 10%s. I just got the decision and the retro pay last week after FOUR years of waiting on the VA and the only issue still pending is on the seizure disorder if which I average 1 se
  2. Can you be at 100% and still working? I ask this because it is taking so long for my regular job to get my early retirement pushed through and I am afraid that the VA will actually beat them ( my regular job) to the punch and possibly award me 100% based upon my seizure disorder while I am still working. I also still have the military side I am waiting to hear from. It never crossed my mind to go TDIU. What is that? I have handled all of my claims and this whole ordeal myself without any assistance and am at a total loss as to where to go from here. Please keep it simple for the newby...LOL.
  3. Question...As of this week, I am 90% (87.7528) service connected through the VA for PTSD at 70%, migraines 30%, neck 20%, TBI 10%, left cervical spylondosis 10%, right cervical spylondosis 10%. I am now a reservist living in Shreveport, LA and I have a seperate package for the military that has been sent to Providence, Rhode Island and is in the gathering evidence phase. It was originally submitted only for PTSD but they have seen fit to include seizure disorder to the claims for me.These are two seperate things; one for the military and one for the VA. I never included seizure disorder in my
  4. Welcome to Hadit. There are no miracles when it comes to dealing with the VA but this site is as close as I've found to a Godsend. An EO, hua? I'm a Seabee- an Engineering Aide. HOORAH, my Brother!
  5. Thank you Carlie and Pete53. I am still currently working but on my way out the door as I can no longer avoid the obvious. I am only 47 but my cognitive skills, temperment, epilepsy, PTSD and many facets of TBI have become a part of my life to the point that I have to medically retire from my job after 20+ years and recieve only half my pay. The process of med retirement is like taking on the VA but it is a challenge I will undertake because I have earned it. I know that I have no chance of getting TDIU while I am still working...Question is, once I retire from the State of Louisiana where I
  6. This is my second post on Hadit so forgive the new experience. I got the white envelope! I am 80% overall SC. 70% PTSD and cognitive disorder, 20%, 10%, 10% for cervical & neck problems and 10% tennitus. This whole rat race is so confusing to anyone, let alone someone with a brain injury and total lack of concentration or retintion of information. It took me two years of talking to my therapist at the VA to even get a VA rep and file. So it's been four years! My original claim was for TBI, cervical splondyosis, cervical radiculopathy, PTSD, tennitus and migraines. I have recieved all of my
  7. Hello, I am new to posting but have been following Hadit for a while and appreciate all the advice from the members here. I am in a quandry. I am currently rated at 80% (20, 10, 10, 10, 70). I was rated at 40% for a neck injury. I just recieved the white envelope taking me from 40 to 80 percent for PTSD, depressive disorder and cognitive disorder. They deferred on the TBI and migraines for a medical opinion. The TBI is documented by neurologist and spect scans as well as my being on a TBI study group at the VA. Is covering me under PTSD for a cognitive disorder the same thing as the cognitive
