  1. Hi all, As i said in another post I am new here and looking for guidance, opinion, options that may be available to me. Without all the gory and boring details, I am currently rated SC 70% PTSD, 10% Tinnitus with a statement that my bilateral hearing loss is not service connected. This all comes from the same original claim in 2012. I found out last year, 2017, that in making the bilateral determination the doctor only looked at my second enlistment and did not review any records from my first enlistment. I found this out when going through my records which took years for the VA to "Find". In the records are audiology test records from the first enlistment which show the damage occurred in service. In my first enlistment I had 3 audiograms. 1 to enlist, 1 diagnosing problem, 1 to re-enlist. in my second enlistment I had exactly 1 audiogram which was when I completed my enlistment. In the record from the first enlistment is a piece of paper that says "rehabilitation plan complete." but no other information. When I took the 2nd test they told me to wear earplugs when i could. That was it. In the test results between enlistment and the 2nd test it shows the loss in both ears. The final test on discharge says hearing is the same as at re-enlistment which was after the damage. So here is my question on this: What are my options to challenge this decision? I did not discover that they did not look at both enlistments until last year, which is 5 years after they granted me my initial 70 & 10 percent ratings. Is there an option? Do i start it all over again? would I need to get a lawyer? any suggestions would be great Thanks
  2. I received the short from from Social Security and checked the box "In the last year, I have not discussed with my doctor whether I can work". This is because it is understood that I cannot, and my doctor and I don't discuss working (at least, I think) because its a given that it is permanent that I cannot. Anyhow, this seems to have triggered the long form from ssdi and I filled it out and sent it in asap. I put my psych dr's contact info and my therapist's. My question is: Should I contact my doctor or therapist in advance or just let them respond to what the SS office asks for? Thanks much!
