  1. Do you remember where you go it done? You can call them and ask as I am sure there is a medical person there would have checked you in. Once you have that information I would go to the VA hospital and talk to the C&P chief there and bring any evidence you have (maybe your wife)? Keep tracking it down until it is found!
  2. I think there might be something for VOC rehab or something, but I am not sure
  3. it is very subjective! I would not speculate, just call them to see what is going on.
  4. I would call the BVA today and see what the status of your appeal is and let them know you have not received anything yet. They are not typically that slow at sending a completed appeal out.
  5. At this point I think you need to show how bad his PTSD is. The doctors need to know what they are dealing with! As for compensations, it only strengthens the claim of his PTSD.
  6. They should go off how he is now. I would also tell the doctors he was not sleeping and all the issues he was having and how they got worse. I think you should fill out a lay statement. I will post it in the morning As for the sheets we moved to a bamboo thread sheet. They are awesome have not ripped one yet.
  7. The good news is the va is getting a lot better at treating vets and not just drugging us out of our minds.
  8. That is good! But trust me do not sit back and think they will just do it push every button you have too until you find the one which helps you!
  9. PTSD can be very extreme!!! Trust me it sucks. I have seen that form before and yes it is very aggravating. They would not be paying you anything if they thought it was not caused by a service connected condition! So yes tomorrow start calling until you get the full amount of pay due! Also make sure they go back to the beginning of when this started as you stated you burned through your savings to get here! Push until you get a straight answer and don't let them push you around!
  10. I would try anyone you can think of to get you to the right person. I am assuming he can’t work due to his ptsd? If so it is due to his disability caused by his military service.
  11. If I am reading this correctly he can’t work his civilian job? If so I think you need to talk to them as your pay should be at the full rate of an active duty soldier. This might help fix this issue I think. Please read over my post but if he is not working then this should fill the gap.
  12. Still in the process but it looks good. You need to call Peggy and ask when and why and why an SSOC was not provided. You can try for an eed on the others but it is a hard case to push. They just did the depression which you appealed? You need to call and see what is going on
  13. RESERVE COMPONENT INCAPACITATION PAY By Anne M. Hill, Esq., Paralegal Specialist Army National Guard and Army Reservists may be eligible to receive incapacitation pay if they are injured while performing military duties. All claims for incapacitation pay are processed in accordance with Army Regulation 135-381, dated 27 December 2006; located at http://www.army.mil/usapa/epubs/pdf/R135_381.pdf. Under Tier 1, this program provides pay and allowances, known as incapacitation pay, to reserve component members deemed not medically qualified to perform military duties due to a medical condition (injury, illness or disease) incurred or aggravated in the line of duty. The incapacitation pay will be reduced by any income the member earns from nonmilitary employment or self-employment. Under Tier 2, the program provides pay and allowances to reserve component members deemed medically qualified to perform military duties, but suffer a loss of earned income from a civilian job due to a medical condition incurred or aggravated in the line of duty. However, the incapacitation pay will not exceed the full pay and allowances for a member of active service with the same rank and years of service. Active duty, inactive duty training, funeral honors duty, traveling directly to or from such inactive duty training or funeral honors duty, remaining overnight, immediately before the commencement of the inactive duty training or funeral honors duty, or remaining overnight between successive periods of inactive duty training are considered “in the line of duty”. Members remaining on active duty while incapacitated will receive their active duty pay and allowances instead of incapacitation pay. They will only receive incapacitation pay upon release from active duty. DA Form 2173, Statement of Medical Examinations and Duty Status, must be completed by the member’s unit commander or unit adviser as well as the attending physician or hospital patient administrator within 7 calendar days of being notified of the member’s medical condition. This form will be used to initiate the incapacitation pay paperwork. An interim determination will be made as to whether the medical condition was incurred or aggravated in the line of duty and payments will be made during this interim period. The interim determination shall be rendered in sufficient time to ensure that incapacitation pay commences within 30 days of the date that the medical condition was reported, unless there is clear and convincing evidence that the medical condition was not incurred or aggravated in the line of duty. If the final determination reveals that the medical condition was not incurred or aggravated in the line of duty or was due to gross negligence or misconduct of the member, the incapacitation pay will be immediately terminated and payments made to the member may be recovered. The member is then entitled to appellate review authority under Army Regulation 600-8-4. A review of the member’s case will be undertaken every 6 months by the Secretary of the Army to ensure that the incapacitation pay is warranted. However, payments beyond 6 months will be made only in the most meritorious cases. Any member who receives incapacitation pay beyond one year should be referred to the Disability Evaluation System for disability separation or retirement, so long as the member is not projected to become medically qualified within the next 6 months. Incapacitation pay will terminate upon one of the following conditions: 1) retirement, 2) separation for physical disability, 3) determination by military medical personnel that the member is able to perform his or her military duties, except when the member is able to prove loss of earned income in a civilian job under Tier 2, 4) member returns to military duty, 5) member no longer has a loss of earned income in a civilian job under Tier 2, or 6) member’s death. The only finance and accounting offices that are permitted to make incapacitation payments are the Army Reserve Pay Center and the finance and accounting offices (FAOs) that provide support to the incapacitated member’s unit of assignment. Members who are receiving incapacitation pay are not permitted to attend inactive duty training periods or earn points toward retirement for inactive duty training if they are deemed not medically qualified to perform military duties under Tier 1. However, retirement points may be earned when completing correspondence courses that satisfy the requirements for a qualifying year of service. Members may not receive Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) disability compensation and incapacitation pay for the same period and disabling medical condition. The member must waive the DVA disability compensation in order to receive incapacitation payments for the same disabling medical condition. For further information and questions, contact your unit administrator or State Family Program Coordinator. sorry for the wall of text!
  14. That is really good! Keep pushing! They will give you cake crumbs make sure you get the whole cake! Answer: The TDRL is a list of Army members found to be unfit for performance of military duties by reason of physical disability which may be permanent, but which has not sufficiently stabilized to permit an accurate assessment of a permanent degree of disability.
