I sure hope so thank you Pete. I cut a similiar deal upon receiving tdiu from VA, by giving up appeals.

I would have asked the lawyer to find out what additional evidence was needed to avoid the waver of a year & 1/2. In otherwords what reasoning is behind the "offer".

After all, that's a fair amount of change.

I agree Chuck but the Judge said he was using tht date because that when VA awarded TDIU. I think it is fair besides I am tired of fighting. I believe by doing that that maybe I will be awarded SSA benefits.

Well it has only been 3 weeks since I signed the waiver and was informed today that the ALJ awarded me SSDI benefits. I know i gave up something but the wait is finally over and I still get 24 months retro. Thanks for all the advice.

24 months means you have Medicare also. No more waiting for you.

Congrats

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
       
    2. 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.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to 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.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
