18 years of evidence was denied 2 and 2+ years later I am being scheduled for an ALJ Hearing....1st time denied I could stuff dolls or very very light work 2nd time I had to much education that included 16+ years, 12 years High School, 4 plus years of collage. I went into US Army at 17 after the 10th grade and never been inside of a collage except to get my GED....Its tough whole different animal than the VA.....All or nothing and they use there own doctors even if you have a long history of illnesses. Also the initial process (reconceration which is same process) they (DDS) is very limited to what they can approve...

Though some have passed in the 1st an second try but rarely, you have to be nearly dieing or next to it to get SSA on the first try...

Right after my 100% IU was approved, I applied for SSDI. It was approved the first time in about 3-4 months. Sent them the exact same evidence I sent the VA, plus the VA rating.

Applied for IU and SSDI same time. IU denied, but used that VA sc info to prop up SSDI application and got approved first time around. Disagreed with IU denial, paperwork is in with stronger SC nsupport now.

My SSDI was approved I think in 42 Days.... ( I posted it on this forum the day I was approved I was denied SSI on my initial visit (to fill out the forms) because they said my VA Disability money (100%) disqualified me. It was the first time I ever applyed for it.

  • 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.
