I recieved a yellow envelope from the San Diego, CA RO. In it was my award letter showing my award for increased evaluation and new claims. INCREASED EVALUATION TO 80% 1. Major depressive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder - 70% 2. Allergic rhinitis - 10% 3. Patellafemoral pain syndrome, Right - 10% (continued) 4. Patellafemoral pain syndrome, Left - 10% (continued) 5. Left shoulder tendinitis - DEFERRED 6. Entitlement to Individual Unemployability - DEFERRED *Both backdated to Aug. 24, 2010 7. Left elbow strain - denied 8. Left wrist sprain - denied 9. Left Achilles tendinitis- denied *denied because the above mentioned items are not "CHRONIC". "A disability which began in service or was caused by some event in service must be considered "Chronic" before service connection can be granted. Although there is record of treatment in service.... There is no evidence of continuity fo treatment from the date of discharge from active duty to present." They didnt pay for my dependents on this RETRO, but I already sent in my forms to update my records and can see they are working on it on ebenefits. They put in the claim for IU on their own, does this mean it has a higher probability that it will be approved? Thanks everyone for your help. Its been a long time waiting, a lot of things lost over this period of waiting. I can now begin to plan for my future with my family again. I'm waiting to hopfully hear something today from a rental I applied for so I can move out on my own with my family. Keeping my fingers crossed. Although this is only a partial descision, I am hopeful that the remaining items on my claim will be resolved in my favor. Keeping my fingers crossed. The fight is not over yet! xpertshot San Diego, CA
