  1. Luckily I had between 600 and 700 left over every month after assuming 700 for food, gas, household needs. So having to put 235 in escrow every month isn't to bad.
  2. I would have tried this bit I can't get my va doctor to do anything and I just can't do the stress. I was having shaking attacks. I just feel a ton better knowing I got a lawyer that says she has done a ton of these types of cases.
  3. I found a lawyer locally that'll let me keep my ssdi going while they work on my case. I just have to setup an account with them and put 25% into the account every month until they win; then the lawyer will petition the court for that sum and return anything ssa doesn't approve. The lawyer also asked why I am not getting SSI for my son since he lives with me. Told her I never knew I could. She said that'd be a separate case and we'd talk about it after my phone interview tomorrow to get everything setup. She told me this cessation is very common now and is ssa's new 'go to' to cut cost. B
  4. I had a lawyer that helped me get to 100% with an independent medical imo letter from a doctor. Even tho that IMO letter is old, 5yrs+, would it help?
  5. Thanks. I was going to during the cdr but the ssa person in charge of my cdr said it didn't matter. When I was awarded ssdi I was 70% sc and now 100% p&t.
  6. Ssa has my last 6 months of record. The cessation letter only focused on my anxiety tho. No mention of ptsd.
  7. SO I been on ssdi since 2011 or 2012 for ptsd. I am rated 100% p&t for ptsd by the VA. I just had a cdr and they're going to stop my ssdi. The reason they gave is this, 'Medical evidence in file shows that you do have mental health conditions. However, your conditions are not so severe as to meet the requirements for social security disability. We have considered your mental health conditions and have determined that you are still capable of simple work that does not require sustained social interaction. We do not have sufficient vocational information in file to determine if you are
  8. I guess I was one of the lucky ones. I got ssdi with only a phone call from ssa asking me some questions about my request for ssdi.
  9. I worked up the courage to ask the ssdi claims adjudicator why she is sending me to a doctor and she said the VA failed to respond. So she has no medical records to go off of. Hopefully this means they're leaning towards not taking away my ssdi.
  10. I do everything the VA ask. Only thing I haven't started again is therapy because I don't want to do it over the phone. I prefer in person. I do a phone appointment with the doctor that prescribes my meds and ask how I am doing and stuff tho. I am P&T and been taking medicine. My va doctor and I agreed a few months ago to try to get off fluoxetine and now I am back on it but at a lower dosage.
  11. It's been about 7 years since my last ssdi review. Since then I have divorced my ex wife and have custody of my son. Last time I filled out SSDI papers the VA helped me fill them out. Before my ex would do everything and I never left the house much. On SSDI's 10 page review paperwork I forgot information and know I didn't do a good job. Had to call and tell them I forgot to list a medication or two. I got a call yesterday from the reviewer asking if I'd be willing to see a doctor they'd pay for. I said yes. This has me freaking out. I am rated 100% P&T for ptsd and my ssdi is just for
  12. So I been rated 100% P&T for over 2 years now. How do I deal with someone that is claiming nothing happened to me in the Army and that I am mooching off the government? Due to having a child with this person I can't totally ignore them.
  13. After my experience with two VSO after I got out. I'll never trust them again. I've only had success with a va lawyer. The most help I received from a va employee on filing for ptsd and ssdi was from a resource lady in the ptsd clinic. Nicest person I ever met at the VA. She was way more helpful than any VSO that ever 'helped' me. I give the lady credit for my initial 70% rating for ptsd. She helped me file out forms and get everything together and that wasn't even her job. Same can be said about these veteran forums. I've came across some really messed up forums. Then I found a nice lady nam
  14. In service stressor can be many things for a mst-ptsd claim. Change of documented behavior, infractions, article 13s, documented request for a change of unit/base, anything that is documented showing a negative change. Before you even start working on that tho. Get into treatment and get a ptsd diagnosis from the VA. Get yourself on sturdy ground.
  15. I don't even take the #800 at their word. Make sure you ask them to check the recent notes. When I called about the rest of my backpay the lady assured me that I already got it last year and there was nothing pending. I asked her to check the notes and she comes back with, 'oh, yeah. They're working on correcting your backpay. Anything you owe will come out of blah blah blah.' She ASSumed I got overpaid. I've told them in the past when it would take 30+ minutes to get someone on the phone, 'do you think I call you, listen to your crappy music, just to hear the BS scripted response I can get f
