Alj Hearing Won!

Rizing Sun
This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.





Finally had my alj hearing, things went well. Actually the alj was not an evil man all..The lawyer and I went in, the

lawyer gave his brief, and the ALJ asked questions pertaining to my daily living. The Voc person

rattled off a few jobs that I could do, and the alj shot them down..

I was shocked to say the least. It was done, ALJ said he would approve a year before date of application.

The only advice I can give, is if your are at the hearing level dont go at it alone.

Medical evidence is a must. I would like to say thank you to all hadit members for posting

their experience, THATS WAS PRICELESS... B)

Now if I can just get this C&P out of the way for IU.....

Make sure the VA knows of the SSA award- I assume it is for same conditions claimed in your VA claim?

GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!

"Medical evidence is a must" You bet- and that cannot be stressed enough.

Congrats. Any Veteran who is 40% and is awarded Social Security probable is in order for an increase in VA rating. You should provide the VARO a copy and ask for 100% TDIU

Seems like all I do is ask questions. Here is another one. I am currently at 40% with the VA and was awarded another 10% sc for HBP, but was not give compensation for the HBP. Am I 40% or 50% disabled? This is all connected to diabetes type 2. Thanks for your help.

I fixed it for you. When you have a few more posts you will be able to edit your own. TBird had to do that cause of abuse on the site.

You should be able to get 100% in some form or another but you have to ask and you have to provide proof such as your Social Security award.If it has been less than a year appeal the last rating and ask for TDIU

Good Luck

  • 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.


    • 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.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
