  1. I was awarded 100% p&t a couple months back. i can’t work. How do I apply for Ssdi? And should I ? I don’t know what to do. Please advice
  2. Hi all, I am new here and wanted specific advice on my condition although I have read lots of other forums. This grammar will not be right, I'm sick, I'm tired, and I just want to get through this crap. I submitted a claim recently and it got denied. PTSD, partially due to MST, partially due to harassment and belittlement. I went into the service with no 'noted' conditions, although I am finding out through years of ongoing therapy i was abused as a child. Mind you, there were no "noted" abnormalities upon entry. I did say several times that at 9 i tried to hang myself...whicih
  3. Have an in-person BVA Hearing, Washington, next week. I'm going without representation. Looking for words-of-wisdom as to the general feeling of the conduct of the Hearing, etc. Is there an appropriate dress code? Are there certain things I shouldn't do...should do? Over-all what is the general tone of the Hearing? Formal? Informal? What is the general competance level of a Veterans Law Judge? Any other advice will be greater appreciated. Thank you.
  4. Hello HadIt Family, First a little background, in 2009 I used my Post 9/11 GI Bill to get my Bachelors. I was working full time at a job that I felt was increasing my depressive state and was constantly degraded. In 2012, I applied for VocRehab stating my current job was just making my depression worst and they made me take tests, talk with a Voc Rehab outside consultant and a counselor and they recommended I get a Masters in Accounting (my math scores were really high) because it would open the door to not work around so many people (severe agoraphobia). I got my Masters degree in 20
  5. To be short and sweet i found out I am facing an MEB today. i am wondering what i might expect for benefits and how they work. Some ppl say you cant take va compensations if you get 30% MEB or more. others say i will have to pay back my separation pay if i take it ($90,000 maybe). and i really dont know how to judge what money i will make outside the Army. i have bad feet, ankles, knees, hip, back, left shoulder, ptsd, anger issues, migraines, sleep apnea, restles leg sleep disorder, depression. if all of these are 10-20% 140-280 % what do i do?
  6. Hello all. I would like to thank all of you for your work on this site. I am a long time lurker, first time poster. I received my C&P Results back and would appreciate any feedback. I understand that there is no way to be fully accurate when trying to guess a rating based off of this information. I am just under immense stress lately as I have watched my life fall apart piece by piece over the last few years. I had good rapport with the interviewer but don't know what to make of some of the things he wrote. Thanks in advance for your insights you all do great work here. SECTION I:
  7. Hello, I am new to this site and am happy to see that there are a lot of folks on here who know the ins and outs of filing claims with the VA. Hopefully someone will be able to offer me advice on how I should proceed. I did not know until recently the issues I've been dealing with were covered by the VA, otherwise I would've started this years ago. I'll try to provide adequate detail. Background: Navy; Honorable discharge in 2003; Persian Gulf; did just about every job imaginable on the boat. Claims and questions: Scarring/pain: service medical record contains detailed record o
  8. Hi all....I'm new so I'll give you a little background. I am 40% SC Disability for my R/L Knees, R Ankle, and G.E.R.D. I was stationed on board the USS Abraham Lincoln CVN-72 and worked on the flight deck. I' was a blue shirt who chocked and chained on night check. I've been covered in JP5 and breathed in ll those exhaust fumes too. My last rating was 2009. Since then I have been diagnosed with Lupus, Fibromyalgia, Type II Diabetes, have torn my Meniscus in my L Knee, Chronic Bronchitis (w/ possible Asthma-COPD). Now I am NOT a smoker and never have been. I have had the Auto Immune problems si
  9. I just finished my last C & P exam in June. The first medical doctor I saw stated my disabilities and that I need aid and attendence for daily living. The VBA sent me on their on an application for unemployability and aid. I included this with my final records and evidence I turned in. The second doctor for rheumatology stated the same, but also stated he can trace my disease back to my military records. Does this good for me on being granted for compensation?
