  1. Thanks everyone, and I didn't know about 1151 claims....so thank you, there too.
  2. Hi all, I may have to hire an attorney for malpractice incurred at a VA hospital. It is a long story but it isn't related to my current disability/benefits. Is taking the VA to court going to put my disability benefits in jeopardy (been receiving said benefits for 10+ years)? Thanks!

  4. That's interesting, I didn't know and thank you
  5. Thanks, I'll try those offices - I'll drive to the hospital tomorrow. They may call today. Yeah, and they won't let me see the 'new' doctor unless I do the 'secret handshake' and 'password' routine with him first. What a spool of red tape! Whatever keeps the numbers up, I guess.....
  6. Hey everyone, Kind of stuck right now with the VA, so thought I'd post. Fell on shoulder and went to ER. Discharged with no sling, no instructions. Could barely move arm. So besides not getting a proper exam and being released too early, never did they properly deal with my pain. But I've been calling them (patient advocate, etc) trying to get an appointment and I finally got an ultrasound scheduled for 10 days from now. Any ideas on how to see a doctor, quickly without going to the ER? Thanks! PS: I got a sling from a local civilian hospital on the 13th, but they couldn't prescribe or offer imaging.
  7. Hi all, I attended therapy last year 3 times at a Vet Center and the therapist left out all kinds of information that was basically the sole reason for my visit and included very serious statements. He no longer works there (probably because he didn't keep correct records, but I don't know). They don't know at the Vet Center how to amend records. I need the records fixed, however, because Social Security is asking for records and these records would have contained useful information for my claim. Is there a form or a process of appeal that I can start to get these records amended to properly reflect what was talked about? Thank you!

  9. I received the short from from Social Security and checked the box "In the last year, I have not discussed with my doctor whether I can work". This is because it is understood that I cannot, and my doctor and I don't discuss working (at least, I think) because its a given that it is permanent that I cannot. Anyhow, this seems to have triggered the long form from ssdi and I filled it out and sent it in asap. I put my psych dr's contact info and my therapist's. My question is: Should I contact my doctor or therapist in advance or just let them respond to what the SS office asks for? Thanks much!
  10. Thanks John, good to know. Yes, I filed for SSDI without an attorney and got it almost immediately.
  11. Hi all, I was wondering about a letter I received from the VA. It says for IU that "The Veteran must periodically cerify continued unemployability, but if there is no scheduled future reduction or medical examination required, he/she may be considered by some states to be permanently and totally disabled." Does anyone happen to know what states those are? I have TDIU and was wondering if I should expect a C&P in the future, even though its been 4 years without one. Thanks!
  12. Thanks so much for the information! I'll save my money. ;)
  13. Hi all, I couldn't find an answer to this anywhere, so I'm posting this topic. Sorry if I've repeated some other post. I'm wondering whether the lifetime membership at the DAV is worth the $250. Do they: 1) Give you better representation 2) Work harder for you 3) Give you any other benefits besides discounts I'm a 70% SC with IU at 100%. I might want to start working. In that case, I want to be sure that the DAV fights for me to retain my 70% SC. Thanks, Scythis
