Hi, i am SC 100% P&T for bipolar, asthma and a few other things. I tried to apply for ssdi, but was denied - in a nutshell they said "we see that you are disabled, but we have determined that you can adjust to other work. we do not have sufficient vocational information to determine whether you can perform any of your other work". So i take this as them needing more proof that i am really a screwed up person (which unfortunately i am , mainly due to the extremeness of my bipolar). So iread that i could get a doctor to fill out a form to better explain my issues. https://www.disabilitysecrets.com/sites/default/files/Residual_Functional_Capacity_Form.pdf https://www.disabilitysecrets.com/sites/default/files/MENTAL_RFC.pdf BUT HERE ARE THE PROBLEMS. 1. My doctor does not have any openings until Nov, and its currently sept. 2. The therapist at the outpatient clinic will not have any openings until JANUARY 3. the mental health clinic at the actual hospital only have docs who can prescribe medicine, not actual therapists. So what can i do. My doctor only treats me for pain related issues anyway, not mental health stuff. So im pretty stuck. Can anyone offer some advice. Thanks
Hi all, After contacting the VA Secretary, my appeal has left AMC and is back at the board. During that week process, my DAV Representative wrote an arguement for me regarding my remand. Looked excellent. I received an update on Friday through ebennies that my case is "Pending Hearing Request/Scheduling". Does anyone have a clue when the next step could be and if that next step is "With Veterans Law Judge?". My appeal has a docket date of 2012. Thanks All! SF03
OK hold on to your hat quick review. Haven't worked since DEC 2012. Filed SSDI claim JAN2013 Was awarded TDIU Jan2015. I'm 80% combined rated at 100% Scheduler. Went in front of ALJ June 2015. The fat A$$ judge called me obese, a liar and denied my claim. Appealed on several issues the best one was new material evidence. I was able to get a Residual function test done by OT. And after reading the mission statement I was able to get my PCP to fill out a 6 page questionnaire done by Binder and Binder (NOT happy with them btw) Any how my DOC was thorough and definite as to my disability and inability to work any job. So that's where I am at today. They owe me around 70K but I am approaching the date that I will not be able to file a new clain if this goes bad. How does the new evidence help and what should I do? they have me by the B**&'s Thanks for advice support and your service Semper fi
