  5. I was just awarded full disability from SSA, and cant never work any more how does the VA than rate me for PTSD if i cant work and am disabilied ? I started my VA claim 4 months ago. Will they turn down my PTSD since i cant work, but i attend 2 weekly meeting for PTSD at the VA clinic and will be on going for a long time to receive treatments as needed. MY GAF 39 and DDD were the reason i was awarded by SSA at age 60. I was moved from SSI to full disability March 17th and now will receive SSA monthly. All replies will be accepted bless you Thank you
