  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Get as much medical documentation from your private physicians as you can. You need to have them write a letter stating that the severity of your physical ailments prevent you from working. The VA cannot dispute the medical evidence you submit to them.

"Its change me to only 70% disable Vet."

But 'only" 70 % is a big stepping stone to TDIU Maurice-

since there is stuff they defered- I sure hope they properly consider you for TDIU- as they must with the 70% rating.

If they didnt ask you for anything else- all I think you should do is wait for the next decision on the defered issues.

Defer is a big difference than denial.

Same here, but I do suggest you keep track of your timeline.

My experience is that I had several items (9 or 10) that were deferred back in 2000. In the letter I just got back on my inquiry about those items, it basically said that once a year goes by, so does the original claim date and the ability to reopen the claim. Now I need to provide 'new' medical evidence not already considered by the VA. Even though the deferral was due to the development of the new 'duty to assist' program, I guess I dropped the ball. On the other hand, I do have "new" medical evidence, to show continuity, for my new claim, and I expect some level of success. I'll be happy just to get it rated.

Hang in there,

--Jim
