  1. Karshi-Khanabad(K2): Hazardous Exposures and Effects on U.S. Servicemembers




    Is the fax number 303.331.7808 still valid. I'm faxing from the Philippines and I get no answer. Is it 24/7? In addition, I sent two VA 10-7959C via FEDEX and registered mail and it's been nearly a year and NO response.

      Try another source:  ebenefits/va.gov

      Its not suprising a fax number is not working, most people dont use fax anymore.  email, upload, or snail mail it.

      Mail and fax are the only options. Mail has been delivered several months ago.

      One option is to wait and see if they respond.  Another is to send the information again, they get dups sometimes and it takes them a while to figure it out but if it is a time sensitive appeal I would resend it registered before the deadline and track the letter through the post office.  Finally you can call the 1-800 number and see if there are any updates to your case file.

      Typical VA.  Status 1 problem identified in late 2018 and rectified in late 2019.

      Well, Allsup dropped me.




      Thank you for the information you have provided us so far. According to your email, your DLI (date last insured) is 12/30/16 so you are no longer insured for SSDI (social security disability insurance).  Unfortunately, we will not be able to assist with your appeal that you have filed recently. Please continue to keep SSA updated with your medical updates and respond to all correspondence directly to them.


      If you have any questions, please reach out to us.


      Thank you,

      Your Allsup Team

      Sorry, the answer may not be what you want to hear, but it is a good answer.  The last date insured is a hard and fast rule with SSDI.  I have not read of anyone overcoming that.

  9. So, I was rated 100% totally and permanently disabled back in Jan. 2019. 70% for insomnia disorder, 40% for lumbar intervertebral disc syndrome, 40% lumbar radiculopathy sciatic right lower extremity and left lower extremity, 40% lumbar radiculopathy femoral nerve right lower extremity and left lower extremity, and 20% left/right hip degenerative arthritis with limitation of extension. I'm under the impression that I can get additional compensation due to unemployability? Is that correct?
