    I am currently 80% IU p& t with 2 appeals still currently active. One is at the board and the other one is having a dro review. The one at the board is a TBI appeal and my dro review is a increase for migranes, which is currently 0%. My question is if granted the max for migranes which is 50% will this open me up for any SMC?... Current ratings are as follows 70% for ptsd, 20% for left shoulder strain, 10% for left ankle sprain and 0% for migranes.
  4. In my last case when my claim closed, i recieved a deposit 3 business days later. If this is the case with u then I'll guess Wednesday u should receive that deposit. With that being said each case is different.
  5. Hey everyone just stopping by to update u on my quest thru the ssa system. Just checked my online account and now i have a hearing date finally on 3/14/2019. It took close to 3 years for this date but still more waiting to go....that light is getting brighter at the end of this tunnel
  6. Appreciate everyones feedback....now can someone point me in the right direction on how to donate to this lovely website? Also I'll keep yall posted on my outcome with ssdi
  7. Now i know one may not have to do with the other or maybe?... A couple days ago i received a huge deposit from the VA but at first i assumed it was from disability because that's the only thing i am expecting. Comes to find out the VA got my effective date for TDIU wrong instead of Dec. 17, 2017 they awarded me from Nov. 16, 2016. Now how in the world did they find that error because i had never alerted them on anything even tho i did feel they lowballed me on my effective date? Remind u i just got awarded IU around June of this year with retro included. Did ssa have anything to do with that? There's no way a VA employee is just opening a random veteran folder without being alerted on something right? So i called the office that's handling my ssdi claim and was inform my case was transferred to a different office now. When i called that office the person informed me that I'm ready for a hearing and that i should be receiving something in the mail soon. I should have a hearing around the end of February or beginning of March but don't quote her on it lol. Last but not least is this a good sign that im heading towards an approval? I've been flagged as critical since Sept. 20th of this year.
  8. No i do not. This was pertaining to ssdi benefits, sorry if i posted in the wrong section...
  9. I'm in New Jersey and wouldn't mind the website. Gladly appreciate it
  10. Just curious for the ones that went thru the process. Approximately how long before your hearing u had to wait? Filed in September of 2016 and just found out as of September 20th of this year my case has been listed as critical (being I'm 100 p&t from the VA). And how soon will i be notified to see if i am going to still have a hearing or will i be awarded without a hearing?
  11. Is it true or has anyone heard the saying that "no news is good news"?.....if so please enlighten me on this. This is what i was told by one of the agents on the phone 1800# Currently waiting for a hearing but believe i may have a fully favorable decision before my hearing. Did anyone else have a decision decided before the hearing while waiting to be scheduled for one, please enlighten me on this process also.
  12. That about answers my question brother! Appreciate the insight alot and will keep yall posted on my process and progress just in life in general. This site just feels like family.
  13. Currently, I have a tbi appeal at the board and waiting for a hearing. I also suffered from a tbi that happened in service and documented but not diagnosed. Also, i was wondering what would be the benefits if appeal the decision? Im getting paid at 100 but still remained at 70 for ptsd.... I guess what I'm asking is why would i want to appeal this decision?
  14. May 26, 2018 i was approved for tdiu p&t. Effective date was Dec. 12, 2017 the day i applied for it. Thanks to all for listening to me even on my bad days, couldn't have done this alone without the help of this site.
