I have been rated 80% with TDIU since 2013. I recently attended my 5 year re-evaluation for PTSD. My exam results showed up on Myhealthyvet today, but I shouldn't get a decision until June or July according to VA.gov. I just wanted to know what you guys thought my rating "MAY" be based on this C&P. Of course, my PTSD and MDD are firing at max speed right now worrying about it. My concern is the part where the Dr says "Moderately Severe" PTSD and depression. I have heard stories about the raters pulling small words like that out and using them for a reason to reduce benefits. Thank you in advance for your time and responses. cp1.pdf cp2.pdf cp3.pdf cp4.pdf cp5.pdf cp6.pdf cp7.pdf cp8.pdf cp9.pdf cp10.pdf
I'm currently rated at 50%for ptsd but with a total of 80% which was given back dec 2010. I filed an NOD right away and just now had a c&p exam on 10/25/2013 and then checked ebennies last night and it had already showed a SOC has been sent. Pretty quick turn around so I'm guessing bad news.

Ok so my PTSD claim was Denied and now I am working on finding some of my brothers that served with me so I can get them to hopefully write letters for me. As it stands right now I have my mother and my brother and the only two friends I have from before and after service that I still keep in contact with writing letters. Can anyone tell me the best way to fourm the letter. As it stands all I can think to tell them is to start with to whom it may concern... Does the VA contact them to confirm the letter or set them up with a deposition hearing or anything like that to put them on record? Anything helps thanks all...
