Rickzoo,I just had my C&P for unemployment in July08. You can bring a letter from your Dr. stating the reasons you are unemployable due to your S-C. That it. Just answer his questions with true. Good luck. Maurice

I just had a C&P August 20th for unemployability. Mine was for

mental. Psychologist was very nice and he may have tried to

trip me up a couple of times, with his repeat of questions.

He ask the same question, but in a different way, but I

found him to be quite helpful.

He was very nice to explain to me what he was asking me.

Good Luck,

What do I need to bring? what do I expect? I am at 70% scedular now.

What Maurice and Josephine just said.

It would help a whole lot if you had some doctor-type person saying that you can't work (due to service-connected disability) and that you don't look like you're goin' to work again (no "miracles" on the horizon, job-wise). That's more than likely what it's going to take for TDIU P&T with "no further exams" (when I saw that "no further exams" on my "award letter thingey", I realized that 5 years worth of BS was, hopefully, OVER, maybe, I hopeIhopeIhope.

Rickzoo, just had my IU exam few months back.

Nearly all (99%) of my sc issues were reviewed but didnt get exam for each. Dr used some recent va exam notes, xrays.etc. From scars to lumbar, was pretty much 'checked' with IU exam checklists. Dr. knew the list ahead of time, preset.

If I were to redo the exam I would take my husband or a sister for support or witness. I do believe the doc was recording the session, because when the C&P exam notes were released to me, there were specific quotes doc said were mine.

The c&p exam format notes I recieved conformed to the VA Vista format, very orderly, cut&dry questions from the exam worksheets. Dr answered. Yes or No to most. Very little detail. Used some current (year old) xrays and other va medical notes re sc issues.

If I were to redo I'd submit a IMO directly to dr at the exam specifically addressed for C&P doc. Am doing NOD re other missing VA sc issues I feel werent well reviewed. Note: this dr.accepted recent medical report after exam.

The c&p for iu has questions regards what a person does at home, out of doors, driving, shopping for groceries, laundry. Those items matter. Asked about lumbar issues sitting time, walking, and lifting or yard work. Asked rather urgently, so I know what to expect another time! Not all questions relate to what I do daily and no I dont do dishes! ha. Myself I have to stay in motion and can hardly sit stilll longer then 15-30 mins, (take seat cushion and back cushion to church).

Wishing ya the best,

Just be careful that any evidence for IU you give the VA is for service connected medical conditions. If you mention any other NSC conditions in your doctor's report the VA may very well try and say that is the real reason you are IU and not the SC condition. They did this to me. If you give them SSD records make sure it contains just SC conditions.

  • 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.
