  3. He may be suffering from PTSD and needs to be evaluated other than that he is just young and confused by the system. He has an ankle injury and loss of hearing due to service in Iraq.
  4. Hello to all on hadit. I have a 22 year old honorably discharghed United States Marine Corp nephew. He was discharged 8-07 and had filed for two Serevicwe connectred disabilities; however he failed to attend his scheduled C&P appointments. The VA sent him a letter stating if he still wished to pursue his claims he would need to write them giving his reason for not keeping his appointments. He talked to me about this and I want to help him and would appreciate any advice. He told me he blew off the appointments and not sure what to say in his letter. He is an Iraq war veteran. Jim Lane
  5. We are responsible for our children and divorce or separation does not exonerate us from providing for them. I find it hard to believe that a person would not provide for his or her children.
  6. Follow Datamans advice he is right on. Wishing you well with your claims.
  7. I Corps, While surfing the board I came across your posts. I applied for SSDI in 2002 and was denied twice by the state agency that determines Social security disability. I appealed both times and lost however I hired an attorney the third time around and I was granted SSDI after first applying over 51/2 years ago. I want to encourage you to appeal your decisions if you have not done so and hire a local attorney that will work your case and represent you at the ALJ hearing. The attorney I hired received 25% or $5500.00 whichever came first. The retro active award went back to 2002 when I first applied and hiring an attorney was the best thing I did. I looked at this process as a full time job and as it turned out it was.
  8. Your comment concerning representation is outstanding advice for anyone considering filing an SSDI claim.
  9. I had my ALJ hearing April 30th and received the decision 9-21-07 and first check 11-28-07. I am waiting for SS to release the back pay.
