  1. Carlie I agree completely and hope they take it 2 steps further. 1. Don't pay the ALJ that cant do the basic job we pay him or her to do; and pay all of the backpay out of the judges pocket. That's the only way they will ever feel a sense of accountability. Congratulations, and thanks so much Bon for sharing this with us. I am at the Appeals Council Level, but have only been there for about 6 months. I am hoping for similar results as you received. Sincerely, RL
  2. I haven't looged on to this site in some time, and WHAT A TREAT. I am sooooooo happy for you and would have loved to see a picture of hubby's smile when you showed him the letter. Thank you so much for the great news and follow-up. It made my week ;-)
  3. Since may, I have watched 2 other veterans (1 at 100% schedule; and 1 at 70% plus TDIU) get forgiveness of their student loans. Neither has taken more than the time yours has been in process. Please help me, help you, and I will be glad to help scrutinize every detail to see if there is anything different between me and these other 2 and your husbands situation. Look in your private MSG box and I will give you my direct number. I want to see you and your hubby win this supposedly easy benefit. Smile, Privyet od Victora
  4. This was a reply from back in September. Like most, I don't like to be wrong. Has there been any update. I am on pins and needles now. My reputation might be held in the hands of some beauracratic YERK!!! How can I help cut out the red tape on this one? I want All of us to get the benefits we have been promised and have earned by more than 1 or 2 sacrifices that most will never know. XOXOX World, Power To The Ruski ;-)
  5. Hello Maurice, I see your profile states you are 100% Individual Unemployability. Are you also 100% disabled, or is it a rating of less than 100% with the distinction of Individual Unemployability? Either way, I find it unbelievable that one governmental organization can say you are not able to work, and another can then say you can. Different measurement criteria are an absolute cop-out, and completely without merrit. I feel the VA should be given the greatest weight since they are also charged with establishing that our medical conditions not only exist at a disabling level, but that the
  6. I appreciate your insight very much. I know that in all of the forums I have become involved, that I am the only veteran with 100% SC disability who has been denied Social Security Disability. I have an attorney who wants her $6000, but I I can not trust anyone other than my fellow veterans. This PRICK of a judge has gone from being a bad judge to being the worst judge in the entire United States regarding his approval of claims. He will never be held accountable for his indiscretion, and no one will ever get a fair ruling from him as long as he sits in his appointed position. If anyone want
  7. Seriously!? Not one of you has any advice on how to deal with a judge that has been placed between you or a loved one and the benefits you so richly deserve?
  8. The reaction I received from my Congressman and Senator was: Thank you for allowing us to help you in your SSD claim. Please sign these forms so we may better understand and support your appication. [i signed and returned them} Their follow through; Your claim is ready for assignment to an ALJ. 4 months later; Your claim is ready to be heard by an ALJ. 4 months later; Your claim is ready to be hard by an ALJ. I could figure all that out by looking on the SSA website. So, what value do these people who claim to "serve us" actually serve? If my promises were that empty when I was in the Army, I
  9. Yes. My Social Security Disability Claim was denied. I haven't received the write up yet, so I can not say why based upon their wording. But the real reason why is the same as I have been stating here from the beginning. Some of the judges in the ALJ pool approve way too many of the applications they see, and some deny way too many of the claims they see. The only way this can be true is that there is way too much subjectivity in the process. For example, everything I have shared in this thread is 100% true. The Social Security Administration never sent me for a Psychological or Psychiatric
  10. It was a full calendar month yesterday. Still no word from either the lawyer or the SSA. I know it will only go as fast and efficiently as pushing a rope. Im just curious how some folks can get through this process in a few months, and others it takes a few years. I read about the judge who had a 99% rate of approving SSD claims, and was fired. If we know that type of prejudice exists, then the corollary also has to be that some judges (prejudge) everyone to be not entitled to SSA benefits. I believe that both extremes are wrong, and both should be attacked equally agressively by the govern
  11. I tried to post in another forum, but obviously failed: I have to admit that I did not do much research on this opportunity, but it did come to me from a different Veterans Benefits web site, and I think there may be one or two or more on this site who could/would take advantage of such an opportunity. Overall summary, is that if you are unemployed, and looking for some retraining, but can not afford the cost of changing courses, then you may be interested in reading/pursuing more: http://benefits.va.g...w/education.htm I am also attaching the wording of the VA Notification so you

  13. Ketchup, The words I have shared here on this site are completely true "if what you have stated in your previous posts are indeed true". I would hate it if the decision of an ALJ could tarnish my integrity. I know that we must all take things with a grain of salt. That also applies to ALJ's. They have a list of rules that they must abide by, but they are also bound by no medical diagnoses, no Vocational Expert testimony, no time frame (seriously, they can take as long as they wish to rule on my case), no physical evidence, nor any thing that we would all consider evidence. They can even decla
