  1. Got my HLR call Saturday. Yes, Saturday. Hard to believe that someone in the VA is working on Saturday. Good thing the phone displayed VA or I wouldn't have bothered to answer it. I submitted my HLR back on 2 June 2020. Her call was on 24 October 2020. 144 days. The VA will definitely not make their goal of 125 days to the decision on this one. I am not sure what she had looked at in my case, if anything. She wanted to know what I was disagreeing with. I explained to her about the CUE I had filed, all the trouble I had getting VA to accept it. I explained to her how the VA had requested C&
  2. I'm a 58 yr old Air Force vet and I just recently got my SSDI approved which made me Medicare eligible. Me and my wife's health insurance is through Tricare Prime. Tricare rules say that I lose my Tricare eligibility if I decline Medicare Part B. Does this mean I have to pay both my Tricare premium and Medicare Part B premium to keep my Tricare insurance?
  3. I know that SSDI for SC disabilities means near automatic approval of TDIU but not the other way around. Does that mean that I should try to get SSDI first? If so, do you know of any good SSDI resources and forums? Thanks.
  4. Hello everyone. I've been searching this website and yukon website for my answers and I guess I just want to ask this question again because the answers I'm seeing are from 2011 or so and I want to make sure it's still valid for 2017. I got out of the service on medical discharge for fibromyalgia, MDD, and GAD in 2008. I was unable to tell anyone about my MST that happened prior to me developing Fibro (which I found out is usually connected to PTSD). Anyrate, since then I have talked to the VA Psychs for help and tried to "fix" myself and finally I opened up and told them about my MST a
  5. Hi Hadit members! I have a question for folks who have SSDI: how hard is it to get? I have read information about SSDI stating it is harder to get vs VA disability, especially if the person applying for it is under 40. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
  6. Hello All, Ive been coming to this site on and off for a couple of years, but this is my first post. Lot of knowledgeable and great people here. Thank you to all the old timers and those with experience for everything you contribute here. You do a lot for people, even though it may not be evident. Im a 36 year old 100 P&T VA for combat related PTSD, TBI and other service connected issues. Former active duty 11B B4, fought with the 101st in OIF. Left active in 2009 as I was having issues. No one was helping me, didnt understand what was wrong with me, and of course the culture of
  7. 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? Tha
  8. IF YOU CAN PLEASE LIKE THIS POST SO THAT I KNOW IM NOT ALONE...... ITS MY BELIEF THAT IF EACH AND EVERY VETERAN GETS A VA CASE WORKER JUST LIKE THE SOCIAL SECURITY ADMIN GIVES THENNN,,,, WE AS VETS WOULD ALWAYS KNOW WHATS GOING ON AND HAVE A PHONE NUMBER TO 1 PERSON AND BE ABLE TO SUBMIT NEW EVIDENCE TO 1 PERSON JUST LIKE THE CLAIMANTS OF SS. WE COULD STILL USE VSO'S TO FIND OUT WHAT BENEFITS WE ARE ALL ENTITLED TO AND ARGUE FOR BUT,,,,,,, WE WOULD NOW HAVE A SINGLE POINT OF CONTACT WITHIN THE VA SYSTEM WORKING ON OUR CLAIMS AND CASE WHO WORKS FOR VA AS THE CASE MANAGER FOR US
  9. I got my second denial from SSA for SSDI. I'm 100% T&P Unemployable. I hired a law firm to do my paperwork because I just don't have the ability or concentration do so. So I got my second denial, which I'm not really happy with my Lawyer as I thought I would be getting more help with the filing. I had to fill out the question pamphlet they sent by myself which took forever. I didn't get any help on that. Which I though a lawyer would help with the wording and medical terminology info to make sure it sounded the way the SSA folks needed it to read. Now that I'm on the second den
  10. if SSDI allow you to make 12 grand a year and also the new law in one state makes anyone getting SSI get a job in order the get their checks 700. per month I f I do all my work around my house in like painting, cutting grass . Than I am a no go vet is that correct. I could care less what VA do film me. Their is somethings that members should be allowed to talk about, maybe adding more forums. If I paint my son house for cash money $1000.00 inside work will I tell my Doctors or VA about this.?????? No none of their business if they don't ask don't tell. Its not
  11. 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:/
  12. Hello fellow vets! Back in 2008 I filed for ssdi after having filed my first c&p claim (2007) and was denied the ssdi, I feel due to my first open claim for c&p award came in 2008 for only primary SC condt--10% rating of TBI w/residuals, secondary SC condt--0% for depression, wasnt enuff for ssdi to be awarded to me. In 2009, I appealed both c&p (2008) award and ssdi (2008) denial and I was once again denied ssdi in 2009 for a 2nd time but was awarded an increase in SC Disb & Comp: 2007 Combined rating 10% increased in 2010 to a Combined rating of 80% Primary SC Condt: TBI

  14. I am a 100% DAV for PTSD, DMII, and a handful of other maladies. I heard something today that has raised a BIG Q. Am I or am I not allowed to earn any income without jeopardizing my SSDI benefits?

  15. I just finally got my SSDI and got my first check last month.....all seemed to be going well for me....but I got a call from SSA today and the lady told me that I would have to get a representative payee to manage my SSDI checks. I have to go to the SSA office sometime in the near future to arrange all the paper work. Unknown to me the ALJ put in his decision that "A recommendation that a determination be made concerning the appointment of a representative payee who can manage payments in the claimant's interest" They further told me that they have withheld my back pay until the determ
  16. Hello everyone, This site has really helped me understand the VA process and different ways they like to deny. First off I served 8 years active duty, I have been 30% since I left active duty in Sep of 2004. My ratings were 10% left index finger 10% right hand, 10% Cervical Spine Classifacation all low balled and I never seeked higher ratings. Until Aug 0f 2011 after several years of depression and feelings of Anxiety etc, I filled a claim for PTSD after several appointments and being told this was the condition. I also applied for SSDI at roughly the same time I filled a claim wit
  17. I've been doing some research about TDIU. I don't meet the rating requirements for TDIU, but I have a SC disability that prevents me from working. I have read that there is such a thing as extra-schedular TDIU if you can prove that your condition prevents you from working. My disabilities are: Major Depressive Disorder 50% migraines 10% IBS 10% I have also reticently received SSDI. Does it carry any weight in proving unemployability?
  18. I have a service connected disability have records showing how the injury has affected me throughout the years and affected my work history where I had to take off work 1 and a half years then went back part time (16 hrs a wk) to see if it would affect me which it did so after being there 2 yrs (and husband coming in after his job to help me) I finally left in 2013. I wanted to know could i file based on this information? I am having a lot of apps and is in extreme physical pain which has caused some mental and emotional pain from dealing with this so long. The problem is that the injury
  19. Hey, ya'll. I've had it. First off, I'm going to try and start a business (real estate). I am currently 90% plus TDIU, SSDI, and FERS retirement. Please advise. DO NOT advise me not to do this! I am looking for the procedure to follow. I read about SSD ticket to work program. Does the VA have anything similar? Second, if you pray to Jesus, please pray for me. I have been down and out since 2006, but want to give it a go before throwing in the towel for life. Pray I succeed, and can have meaning to life. It may start out as not substantial employment, but will hopefully one
  20. Hello everyone, I came across this site a couple of days ago and have been stalking it every since and decided to finally post. I came across this site because I started searching for like minded people that understands what I'm going through as far as dealing with the VA, compensation, and pain (physical, emotional, mental not to mention the extra layer that's added by the va). I am currently receiving 20% rating which is not nearly enough for the "damage". It has been really hard dealing. Long story short (hopefully some can relate and share your experience). I went into the military a

  22. Hi, I have already been approved for SDDI (totally disabled) and have been receiving benefits from them for about 8 months. I want to file for VA disablity for aggravation of a condition while I was in the Army. I am rated 40% with the VA currently but all for physical conditions no mental. My SSDI was approved soley for mental conditions using my VA records of treatment for mental health treatment received at the V.A. My questions are: 1. Does my SSDI "count" at all for a VA mental health rating? 2. I was taking lithium prior to my entrance into the service but the Army disco
