  1. Thank You all! I was very surprised it went that way because I had all odds stacked against me with me being 30 yrs old and having a AAS in Network Administration. I thought for sure it was going to be a long and drawn out battle. It even shocked my lawyer. LOL
  2. First and foremost I want give all Glory, Honor, & Thanks to God for my blessings. I was awarded 100% by the VA at the beginning of the month and I conquered Soc Sec today! My hearing only lasted about 15-20 with only a handful of questions and the Judge made a bench decision, fully favorable back to 3/16/12! The ALJ gave great weight to my VA docs and used my performance letter from my internship to arrive at his decision. Now with all of this out of the way, I can focus treatment and getting well. My timeline for Soc Sec: App Date: 12/31/13 Denied : 2/26/14 Recon: 4/25/
  3. I don't have the commissary letter on Ebennies. Is there another way to get it. (P.S. I am a female. No wife here lol)
  4. Thank You! I only caught the mistake because of the research that I've done on this site. ( I hardly ever post but I do lurk a lot. LOL). Only then I knew what to ask them. It was an error made back in 2011 when I won an appeal for my left knee dating back to 2005. It didn't effect me until I was awarded 50% for MDD earlier this year and my rating was 60% rather than 70% because the bilateral factor wasn't include. I doubt they would have caught it had I not...
  5. I got my letter today and it confirmed the 100% for MDD w/Panic Disorder, 20% right femur and 10% left knee and the 2 deferred contentions.The 100% is not P&T but it didn't give a re-eval date. It also address the bilateral factor mistake they made and I'll receive $$$ for it. I didn't receive any forms for my ID or anything. Will that come later?

    Woohoo!

    Woohoo!

    They fast tracked me already. That's how I got my hearing date so fast. I do pray that my new rating will help since it's the reason why I applied.
  8. Tela

    Woohoo!

    Yes, I applied for SSDI. I was denied twice, in Feb & June, and have my hearing on Oct. 20th. I do believe the fiscal year has something to do with them pushing out claims. That and the heat they've been getting lately.
  9. Tela

    Woohoo!

    I checked and I'm 100% for MDD with Panic disorder (effective 4/17/14), 20% for right femur. My 10% rating for left knee is missing though...
  10. Tela

    Woohoo!

    Thank you all! I will update you once I learn more.
  11. Tela

    Woohoo!

    After being stuck in Prep for Notification since last Tues, my claim moved back to Review of Evidence. I checked my AB8 and it now says I'm rated at 100%. Looks like a few other contentions were deferred. I will know more once I get my BBE!!
  12. Yeah, I hope so as well. I know they were trying to figure out if I get the bilateral factor because I'm 20% for right femur (labeled as right knee) and 10% for my left knee and 50% for MDD. I get either a yes or no depending on who I talk to. But it's the difference between my current rating being 60% and 70%.
  13. Yeah, I checked it and nothing has changed yet. I'm praying for a positive outcome!
  14. Here's my timeline for IU so far: 4/17/14 Claim Received 4/18/14 Under Review 6/11/14 Prep For Decision 7/16/14 Under Review (claim no longer considered an FDC. Don't know why since I never sent in anything else after I started the claim) 7/23/14 Gathering of Evidence 9/17/14 Prep For Decision 9/22/14 Pending Decision Approval 9/23/14 Prep for Notification It seems to have hit a snag at Prep for Notification for some reason but at least it's almost complete! Hopefully it will be done by sometime next week. I will keep you all posted.
  15. Well I filed a claim for IU on 4/17/14 and it jumped straight to PFD on 6/11/14. Then the following month it went back to Under Review (7/16/14) and now it sits at GOE (7/23/14). It says a development letter has been sent but I've yet to receive anything. Guess I'll go bug my VSO in the morning to see what's up....

    Ok!

    Yaayy!! Congrats!!
  17. Thanks. Will do! Thank you. I'm a little uneasy that my claim jumped to prep for decision so fast with it not being an FDC. My VSO told me they fast tracked it and that I should bee hearing something pretty soon. I just wanted a bit of reassurance I guess. LOL I'm 30 and SSD have been denied twice already. I have enough work credits and have been unemployed for 2 yrs but SS doesn't think I'm disabled enough despite my med records and both of my docs saying so...I have a lawyer and prepared to fight.
  18. Yes I applied on 4/17/24. This is a DBQ my psychiatrist filled out for me. No C&P. And Yes, I've applied for SSDI.
  19. I applied for IU and an increase for MDD (50% awarded on 3/8/14) on 4/17/14. I submitted a DBQ my VA psychiatrist filled out and just want some feedback on it. I'm currently 50% MDD, 20% right femur claimed as right knee and 10% left knee. My claim jumped from "Under Review" to "Prep for Decision" on 6/11/14. Axis I Major Depressive Disorder Panic Disorder, secondary to #1 above Fibromyalgia + Migraine, secondary to #1. Worsened by her MDD Axis III 780.57 Sleep Apnea Axis IV Minimal current stressors other than symptoms Axis V 45 Does the Veteran have more than one mental diso
  20. Ok. I'll go to the RO and do just that. But from what my new VSO told me, no bilateral factor was included but it should have. I've gotten so many different answers and I'm just confused about the whole thing. Lol He told me that they will address the issue with my claim. I guess I was just looking for confirmation. I'll just have to be patient and wait.
