Hello Graham and welcome aboard.

Also, thanks for your service to the nation.

I don't have the expertise to answer your question, however, I'm sure one of the more senior members or moderators will come along soon to answer and move this to an appropriate forum on the site, maybe Vets research, where it will be seen by more members.

Hey Graham!

I filed my claim as far back as 2002. I am now in my 7th year and it's PENDING Review by an AJ at the BVA!

Depending on your conditions, C&P exam write up, what RO is developing your case, if someone actually does their job, and how many claims are before yours, etc., it could take no more then a year(RO) to seven years(BVA)!

So, I suggest lying back, and reading a few good books! :lol:

Hey Graham, Welcome to Hadit.

We sure get a lot of folks with BAck and Neck problems from Military service. I am also SCD at 40 for C5/C6.

You meet the requirements for IU with your ratings with 1 at 40.

The Important things to consider are this.

1: Are you currently working?

2: Filling out the IU form. Fill it out and turn it in. The VA states they will not award IU w/o the form.

3: Md opinions. If yoiu have any outside medical opinions that you cannot work due to your SC issues turn them in. If you dont have them, Try to get them.

4: SSDI: If you are eligible for SSDi have you applied and received or are you planning to apply for SSDI. This is an asset for IU but not a gurarantee.

5: I always advise everyone here to get a copy of all their records that the RO has. The Claims folder.

6: Your VSO can help you. We can also help here at HAdit. You can also help yourself if you want to research the regs on unemployability in the link to the 38.cfr adjudication section of the regs. I can post a link if you need one, just shoot me a pm or click on the Basser.

Again welcome to HAdit and Thank you for your service.
