I think that you have what you need. Have you had a Hearing with DRO?

Good Luck

You can go ahead and ask for the DRO. You are alotted time to present new evidence. The DRO submission only starts the clock.

It could be the simple fact thet the VA did not even recognize the increase. My bet is that they just didnt look at it and issued you a denial just for the sake of issuing a denial to get you on the claims completed list.

The SSD for the service connected issue should be reconsidered. I would ask them to do that and also ask for a DRO review. I would also get an attorney.

I know that many disability processes do not allow the companies to act in Bad faith but the VA gets away with it every day.

Again, Spurs in the side hurt. Kick them hard. It is your benefit, you paid for it with your health.

CG - refresh my old worn out mind B) Did your SSDI come through while the IU claim was pending or prior to the submission of the claim? If during the process did you send them a copy of the SSDI award?

Ricky, you dont have a worn out mind with that type of laff! Ha. And thanks for posting, cowgirls need inspiration too!

The IU claim was put in this year and SSDI later.

Cg'with Hadittude!

The IU claim was put in early this year and SSDI late spring. The IU claim was denied this summer and ssdi is newly awarded; $ in the bank.amen. Don't know if that matters or not.

Cg'with Hadittude!(stubborn 'n proactive!)

It matters a bit in how you proceed. My recommendation is that you take the SSDI award (and any medical records associated with it) and ask for a reconsideration since it was not a part of your claim (I assume they did not have it based upon your post). I would then get the IMO and submit the NOD approximately two months later if you do not hear anything on the reconsideration.

  • 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.

    • 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.
