  1. I'm in the process on filling for TDUI. I'm currently at 80% total 70% for PTSD, 10 for L knee, 10 for R knee and 10 for back. I was recently diagnosed with Sleep Apnea and was given a CPAP machine. King of Battle.

    White Envelope

    Berta, my shrink and primary care doc know I have not worked since October of last year. Even the C&P doctor knew i was not working. If I do apply for TDIU what documentation do I need to submit to them to prove i'm not working? Working on SSDI.
  4. Burnt out to much info running to my head.

    White Envelope

    I received my envelope yesterday and the breakdown is: 70% for PTSD, 10% for Chondromalacia lateral tibial Plateau right knee (previously claimed as retropatellar pain syndrome 0%). 10% for Chondromalacia lateral tibial Plateau left knee (previously claimed as retropatellar pain syndrome 0%). 10% for Scoliosis, lumbar spine, with musculoskeletal pain (previously given 0%). Evaluation of Keloids, residuals of hematoma, right thigh 0% disabling, is continued. "during my C&P the doc told me it was not Keloids and to seek a derm appointment, well i did and hold and behold it's Keloid now i will be seeking a re-evaluation. received 1st payment today and was paid for 4 dependent instead of 5. not sure why as I updated info Thursday night and Ebenefits had updated amount. was given Voc Rehabilitation Benefits info. Can I apply for TDUI?

    Ebenefits September 2014 Pymt.

    Didn't get mine. Not sure if it's because I added my newborn son last night, who was born on July. I didn't want to add him to my claim and slow it down so I waited until my claim was approved. My AB8 was updated immediately and showed new amount which was super fast. Not sure if someone has to approve it before I can get paid.

    Back Pay

    So I check my account today and BAMM!!! my back pay was in my account. Which was great that I received it before getting my brown envelope. Only thing I was short changed. I submitted my claim on Dec 13 2013 but AB8 states Jan 1 2014 so they shorted me one month of back pay. Is this normal?? Also how long do I have to wait to file new claims? and will it take 8 months to complete as well?

    Claim Closed

    in the same boat as you bojack. Mine closed yesterday and i'm still waiting for my brown envelope. I noticed yesterday that the effective date of last change to my current award is Jan 01 2014, but i sybmitted my claim in Dec 13 2013.

    Claim Closed

    Thank you all for the excellent guidance and wisdom. Today history has been made, my claim finally closed after Eight months. I'm rated at 80% just waiting for my brown envelope to see what was awarded. Not sure what's next for me as i'm still unable to find/maintain employment without having a panic/depression cloud hanging over my head. Thank you GOD who has been my rock during my dark days and my wife for being my biggest supporter.
