Single Status Update
Hi Berta. Been away since I went to my congressman VA rep to find out status of my deceased husbands claims and he told me there wasn't any open. Then I got a letter in the mail stating that they wanted any evidence for an "Accrued Benefits" DIC claim, I might want to apply. I am assuming it is on IU He was 70% PTSD, GAF 50. I thought IU should be inferred! (when PTSD was exacerbated because of neglectful and wrong doing in several documented instances perpetrated by the VA. It was obvious to me that it gave me an earlier date, starting with the first Neglect on the VA's part, that created for him exacerbation and worsening of his PTSD. So have been working on setting up Earliest date! My question now is He is also NOT "boots on ground" but in Contiguous waters of RVN. Am trying to get ship logs for leaving his ship to qualify him, since he has Ischenmic Heart, DiabetesMelitisII, ED, and am in the process of getting proof. so if I state those things as Secondary, Or presumptive or aggrivation Through theory of entitlement for PTSD, does that keep me from inferring those things presumptive for AO, which would be, I assume easy if the ship proof comes thru.
Here I am again Berta..
As i have received my claims response as "Denied"
Everything was "IN PLACE". We had been waiting over 5 years.. For some reason I got papers closing the claim stating I had missed a date I was not aware of. Then I got papers (pertaining to the letter above) that they reinstated my claim for "Accrued Benefits" Well they sent me denial papers within a few weeks!!! (imagine that). Their reasoning was that my husband has an "OLD" Socail Security claim on his back, so they are denying the claim for that reason!! How do I get them not to "Consider" the old Social Security Benefits claim that we were "NOT" receiving any money on!!
