  1. Hi Berta,

    I think this is the first time i have asked you a direct question on your feed/post. I have a question on what is a Training Letter, i tried to look up some information on it and i think this letter is closely related to maybe what a BVA or appeals would hand out. Anyway, it struct an accord with the language in the writing.  

    As it relates to me, i have been dealing with SSA for SSDI for years and have been denied on first claim all the way up to appeals counsel. I applied again later because my insurance is set to expire soon and i was again denied at dds level. I am TDIU P/T no scheduled exams etc etc..

    My 50% and a couple of 10% pushed me to TDIU by chance. I have not worked since 2013 went from a lucrative Six figure job to being homeless then rebounding to a roof over head. With out going into detail on how i have several letters from Doctors and Voc Rehab indicating i am unemployable, SSA is still denying me and again without getting into detail which might help you with my question, ill reserve this for another time to ask you a question that wont tie up to much time. My award letter was not as elaborate as what i seen on what your posts about TDIU.. it was a comment from a training letter question someone had and it said this...

     

    Based on all the evidence of record, and resolving all doubt in favor of the Veteran, the Board finds that the Veteran is precluded from securing and following substantially gainful employment due to the effects of his service-connected disabilities, specifically his low back condition, right knee, and right ankle disabilities.  The Board finds that the evidence supports that he would be unable to perform labor akin to that which he is educated and trained to perform.  Therefore, the Board concludes that TDIU is warranted.

     

     

    I think if my Awarded TDIU had some of this verbiage it would help a little but is this only handed out at Appeals level/BVA/ Training letter affiliate? Please help.... 

    VA Has not been able to find a cure or good enough remedy for my migraines. And to add to that.. i do have a lot more disabilities that are either pending or at 10 or 0 percent that make my life of a hardship. Also i have been diagnosed by a VA psych for insomnia, ptsd, tbi, anxiety, depression but i have never claimed this with the VA because in fear of having them strip me of TDIU and back to homelessness by way of .. well you know how some of the VA claims go.. sometimes not in favor of the Veteran.. anyway.. hope this gets to you and hope you can help....

     

    BTW.. you are an Ambassador to this site.. A Staple to Veterans in General.. i have for years enjoyed reading your responses to other Veterans and i am very much impressed.. Happy Holidays and may you be blessed.

      “.

      This is good evidence to re-open the SSDI claim with- or perhaps to file a new SSDI claim.

      This link and many more  SSDI web sites have good advise on handling denials:

      https://www.disabilityapprovalguide.com/social-security-disability/appeals/how-many-times-can-you-appeal-an-social-security-disability-denial/

      I usually dont answer posts in my profile- my time is very limited at hadit these days- due to other work I do for veterans. Make sure SSDI is aware of all of your disabilities.

      I don't know what training letter you mean but if you can scan and attach the TDIU  award letter to a post at the main forum maybe we can help more.
