    Ptsd 100%

    Congrats, sgmdae
  2. I was rated 100 percent temporary schedular for anxiety/depression 2 years ago. after my recent follow-up c&p was rated at 100 percent p&t. Am I done or should I pursue tdiu? When I got 100 percent temporary the decision letter said tdiu is a "moot point". would this also apply for 100 percent p&t? I'm thinking it does.

    Got The P&t Decision Envelope

    I looked back at my hadit membership since just over two years ago thing in my profile. I joined when I came in here rated at 60 percent, 50 percent anxiety/depression and 10 percent tinnitus. Through your support and guidance I was able to cognitively pursue this recent award up to 100 percent anxiety/depression p&t and 60 percent additional qualifying me for the other schedule award of $300 a month. I COULD NOT have done this without your patience, guidance, understanding and even putting up with some of my worst moments (many that I hid). Good luck to any who are starting on a similar journey or are facing setbacks you can't understand. There is light at the end of some of these VA tunnels.

    Got The P&t Decision Envelope

    another question is, should i NOD the decision based on the date being just recently and i had actually applied for tdiu about three years ago, would that be some backpay issue? i have been rated 100 percent temporary schedular for anxiety/depression for about two years with backpay to about three years.i also get statuatory housebound for having other issues totaling up to 60 percent in addition to 100.

    Got The P&t Decision Envelope

    wife finally brought in the mail and in it was the decision envelope from my dreaded c&p examination ...and it says i have been rated 100 percent anxiety/depression has not changed and that i am now rated permanent and total. this was followed by: "basic eligibility to dependents' educational assistance is established from (feb. date of exam)." the blue pages with the rating decision reads: "basic eligibility to dependents' education assistance is granted as the evidence shows you currently have a total service-connected disability, permanent in nature. we have granted an effective date of (feb. date of exam), the date the evidence shows you are permanently disabled." so, i have that to celebrate, i guess. other questions now coming up are: as far as DEA, my wife could use this but we would really like our daughter to use it. but she is married and turns 26 in june, the last year (if she qualifies as a dependent)., there are waivers i've heard but would the experts please repost the applicable va regs dealing with this? thanks for all support, out_here04

    Near Augusta Ga Vamc

    http://chronicle.augusta.com/news/governme...ed?v=1271806197 an Augusta Chronicle story on the issue.
  7. I sent this news item to tbird already: Tbird, I'm just the messenger, but I heard something on the news this morning regarding a proposed home for homeless veterans, I believe near an existing large building near the Charlie Norwood VAMC in Augusta, GA. I can't find it yet on their website or in the local newspaper, the Augusta Chronicle, or the other affiliates yet. The "Uptown VA" in the following report is the Charlie Norwood VAMC in Augusta, Georgia, off of Wrightsboro Road. This short report doesn't go into whether the VA, itself, is behind the plan. From NBC Augusta, Channel 26, Morning News, April 21, 2010: "Last night Augusta commissioners put talks on hold for a project that would provide a home to homeless veterans. Commissioners heard plans to re-construct an old building for homeless veterans on Maryland Avenue, near the Uptown VA. But some neighbors oppose the plan. Opponents say the area already has too much traffic and the plan could pose a safety issue for children.A decision should be made by the commission at their next meeting which is in two weeks."
