Sorry I messrd up. I received severance pay 40% seizure 0% right knee after about 3 years I tried to up % on right knee I missed appointment va took all disability. I had moved to another state assuming 40% was going to my af severance pay off. I found out I still owed af 8500 pissed me off by this time I had a job with insurance. As time went by seizure kept coming more people found out. Oct of 2006 va doctor wrote a letter saying Im not allowed to drive or work until I see a nurologist. I was getting unemployment up to this time. va awarded me 20% for 5 month I was waiting for apt. Would I be eligible for 100% during that time. nod is 24 june

I need to clarify this-you received separation pay at 40% for seizure disorder that was Service connected-

Is the $8500 debt due to receipt of the separate pay as well as VA comp?

"Oct of 2006 va doctor wrote a letter saying Im not allowed to drive or work until I see a nurologist"

Did the neurologist say that you are still unemployable due to the seizure condition?

How did the 40% get down to 20%?

I mean -you were getting 40% in VA comp and then they lowered it to 20% for the same seizure disorder? But the C & P you missed was for the knee?

Is June 24th the last day you can file a NOD?

What does the June 2006 decision state as to what you are disagreeing with?

What % for SC do you actually get now ?

VA did not have the doctor's statement Oct 2006 as to unemployability when they prepared their last decision-if that decision came a year ago-

I strongly suggest that you refer to this statement in the NOD and also attach a copy of it.

"Im not allowed to drive or work until I see a nurologist"

What did the neurologist's report say as to all this?

If you have this-you could also attach to the NOD-

Do you have a vet rep?

You also could attach a TDIU form 21-8940 if the doctors are saying-in documentation-that your service connected condition (and the meds also as to their side effects) render you as unemployable.

Air force rated me at 20% sc. va rated me at 40% seizue 0% right knee no rating for lower back injury this was in 1988 I had a car accident on the way to appointment didn't make so my benefits went to 0%. I wasn't aware of this I had move several times. When I found out 1993 I didn't trust the va health care system. Med over years have taken a toll on my body now. I took a lay off from work I knew I couldn't do it I was make mistakes Didn't remember doing it. I started back at the va during my absence things changed. I reopened my claim. award 10% dec 2006 I appealed it went to dro gave me 20% 10% goes to af severance pay off I recieve 10%. eeg showed seizure activity. I havn't filled on my lower back wasn't sure when the best time mri showed herniated disc. I have a local va rep I feel he dosn't know or cares. I really at lost how to go forward. I depressed memory loss having had time focusing Thank YOu for asking questions. I have alot of things going wrong because of sc back knee epilepsy. communicating it is hard and draining.

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?
