Crsc & Ptsd Re-examination


gunner

Question

GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY,

I HAVE A TWO-SIDED QUESTION TO THROW OUT HERE TO EVERYBODY. I REOPENED MY CLAIM LAST YEAR AND HAD GOOD RESULTS ON THE FINAL OUTCOME. MY PTSD WAS CHANGED FROM 0% TO 50%, SO ALONG WITH MY OTHER STUFF I WENT FROM 60% TO 90%. HOWEVER, ON MY RATING DECISION FOR THE PTSD INFO IT SAYS I MUST BE RE-EXAMINED IN 3 YEARS. I HAVE BEEN GOING TO THE VA DOCTORS IN THE MENTAL HEALTH AS WELL AS THE VETS CENTER FOR OVER 8 YEARS. ALONG WITH THAT I HAVE BEEN ON MEDS PRESCRIBED BY THEM FOR ? YEARS. IS THIS A NORMAL SITUATION OR IS IT UNIQUE?

NOW FOR THE SECOND QUESTION. I HAVE BEEN PONDERING THE THOUGHT OF APPLYING FOR THE COMBAT RELATED SPECIAL COMPENSATION (CRSC) BUT HAVE SECOND THOUGHTS, AS I HATE TO START FILLING OUT 6,000 FORMS AND LETTERS AND DIGGING UP ALL THE STUFF AGAIN. MY QUESTION "IS IT WORTH IT" AND HOW MUCH STUFF DO I HAVE TO GET FOR THAT? IN FACT "HOW MUCH" IS IT WORTH OR IS IT JUST A TAX FREE STATUS AS I AM LED TO BELIEVE.

ANY HELP OUT THERE ON THIS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Are you retired military? CRSC only comes into play if you are retired Military with more then 20 years service.

Jim MAC,

YES I AM RETIRED WITH 25+ YEARS OF SERVICE. WHAT'S YOUR INPUT ON THIS? I HOPE SOMEBODY'S GOT SOME INPUT. I ALSO FOUND SOME INFO SAYING A REVIEW OF A SERVICE CONNECTED RATING IS NOT WARRANTED AFTER AGE 55. I'M NOW 58 YEARS OLD. ANY INFO ON THAT AS WELL?

THANKS TO ALL.

Guest Jim S.

Since it was not one of your questions, I assume you are still working, otherwise they failed to concider you for TDIU. Since your combined is over 70% and if you are having problems at/or with work, it may be a consideration.

But I would suggest and recommend, that if you are able to work, continue to do so, being unable to work isn't all it's cracked up to be, if you do not find something to do with your time, everything tends to go down hill from their and any physical problems could soon become major problems.

Just thought I'd comment on the alternative.

Jim S. :D

I AM STILL WORKING AND HAVEN'T CONSIDERED LEAVING UNTIL AGE 62, OR I AM PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO DO SO, WHICH TO A CERTAIN DEGREE IS CLOSE TO BORDERLINE NOW. MY CURRENT JOB HAS TRIGGERS WHICH I MUST ENDURE AT A REGULAR INTERVAL.I GO TO GROUPS WEEKLY AND AM SEEN ON A REGULAR BASIS AT THE VAMC MHC DOCTORS AND PSYCHOLOGISTS.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. 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.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    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
