  1. Thanks Gastone,

    Yes, I keep an eye on my direct deposits and my AB8. I have received so many SSOC's throughout the years I can't count them. I filed my first claim in 1995 for a back condition but they have all been clear in their message, i.e. remand, partial denial, etc.

    This is part of the letter the R.O. sent  that is bewildering to me: "Entitlement to IU was denied prior to Nov. 14, 2015 because you have not been found unable to secure or follow a substantially gainful occupation as a result of your SC disabilities. You did not meet the schedular requirements for the entitlement to IU."

    As I said I have met the schedular requirements, being 60%, prior to that date, so they got that wrong and there is no mention in the letter that anything was approved although the implication is there was a grant after Nov. 14, 2015 but they did not say that and my claim is still at the RO in PDA phase.
