Question

Someone stated in another post...

"If Voc Rebah ever turned them down for Voc Rehab solely due to SC disability this is Prime FAcie evidence of TDIU-

If one is un -vocrehabable-one is unemployable."

I asked that for copies of all documents under the FOIA previously and received copies of medical records and exams and claims file but nothing concerning voc-rehab even though I'd been considered and turned down due to service connected depression.

At the time I wasn't even thinking about TDIU but shouldn't those records have been provided anyway?

How do you get a copy of voc-rehab record saying they can't voc-rehab you?

YUP!

Go with what William said. Drop by the VocRehab Co-ordinator (or whatever ya call 'em's) office at your VAMC. They should be able to take care of this. Either that, or the VBA's office, again, at your VAMC.

If that don't work, drop into your friendly Patient Advocate's office. I've found, when I don't have the answer to something.......the Patient Advocate is always (really, they are, always) willing to at least take a stab at it.

I was advised to go to the Voc-rehab office at VARO...( over 310 miles round trip)they keep their own records there, in their own dept at least in my case they did. Got initial acceptance letter from them within just a few days. Prior to the letter my counselor/caseworker called me and told me he emailed me my acceptance letter and would be mailing me the original letter too. Got them all.

The educational advancement area aspect didn't work out as I have a few degrees already so further education was not an option and work situation not tolerable, so now going through ILP. Hope this works out. Have been lucky with this Voc-rehab counselor as he looks for anything and everything available to help me.( off the record he thinks I am getting shafted with my compensation claims)

Told him I wanted any/all records/files/reports any items in my file with my name/number on it, good/bad/ugly for my records, he said no problem. I told him I would send him my request under FOIA for all, and he is sending all info to me.

Sometimes it is hard to believe someone this compassionate does work for the VA. :rolleyes:

I'm curious if this statement is enough to get approved for TDIU or P&T? I currently have a claim in ratings with a letter from my voc rehab worker saying I'm not eligable for voc rehab because of my service connected disability. As a result, I was put into independant living. I'm 60% rated for degenerative disk disease and 30% radiculopathy. Hopefully I'll get approved but I'll let you know when I get the decision.

All I did to get the letter is ask my voc rehab worker. I don't see why they would be unwilling to help you especially since you can be more independent at 100% then you can at a lower rating. Good luck with you claim, John

If the VA Voc Rehab counselor documents that your SCs prevent you from being a feasible Voc Rehab candidate-

and you are not working-this is GREAT evidence for TDIU-

But also - the VBM (NVLSP) recommends too that if a vet never applied for VA Voc Rehab-they might be able to afford some testing and a statement from a Voc Rehab specialist to state that their SC prevents them from being voc -rehabable.

I believe that this is also part pf any SSA disability determination.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
