  5. Folks, you need to read your VSO's organizations by laws. Some do actually state that and it is sad. If your stuck with a VSO, you could be in for the long haul. It is a tough decision, Do I use a Free VSO or do I employ a Certified Claims agent. If you have already have a decision in hand, I know what I would do.

  8. .Not all have access to VMBS. You have to apply for that. Ask if they have access.
  9. It can happen that way. They money beats the letter. Is it more or less than you expected? If you used the AL or DAV to help you call them first thing and ask them to find out. They have likely saw your award already. Look at your letter generator under E benefits. Benefit verification. Also look at vets.gov for claim status. You may find out that way. Basser
  10. If your VSO is an accredited VSO he can see the whole enchilada if he has access to VBMS. That is a very important tool when selecting the services of an agent or VSO. Hint. Most Big Service Orgs have only a Few accredited VSO's. It is always wise to ask this question when you talk to them. Ask do you have access to VBMS to look at my claim on line. If the answer is no, Ask them if one of their reps does have that acess. Most of the Certified Claims agents have access to VBMS. But Claims agents don't usually get on board until you have a decision. It does not have to be a denial. Just one yo
  11. Ratings of the spine. The spine is broken up into 2 different segments for VA rating purposes. Cervical and thoarcic and lumbar are considered one. If you are rated for an issue on the spine and have a separate issue on the same segment the VA will only rate one as more than one is called pyramiding. They should rate the most severe condition. You may be better off obtaining an MRI of the spine vs an xray. There are also 2 different sets of rating criteria for the spine. One is Traumatic Arthritis. The other is Invertrable Disk Syndrome. If you have Arthritis with no disk issues then it shoul

  20. Keep in mind that Social Security is an all or nothing process. It is based on your disability lasting for one year or more or resulting in your death. As long as your SSDI award is based upon PTSD and it appears they used VA records as medical evidence, The VA should follow suit and award 100 percent for PTSD. The reason for my suggestion is that the criteria for 100 percent PTSD precludes working which means you cannot work and SSDI has already kicked in. I have seen this exact same thing before with another Hadit member. Hang in there.
  21. Sorry for the late change folks but our scheduled guest had a Medical Emergency and will be with us next week. (Stay Tuned) We have decided to Replay the End of life show instead. This show is beneficial to all who listen. It is a Dark subject but we must do this as dark as it appears. Berta Simmons is the guest on this show and she has lived this scenario and We commend her for doing the show.

  22. Look at your original denial letter closely. Why was it denied? If anywhere within the denial it stated service department records were unavailable and the claim was denied and went final and the claim was later awarded based on any information listed in the service department record that the VA has received since the denial then you may be able to go back to tour original date without filing a CUE claim. The basis would be based on Title 38 cfr 3.156c.
