Claim For Ptsd



I really need some assistance. I am a service connect Veteran and I discharged from the Army in 1986 with 10% SC for my back and 10% SC for my ankle. I fell 50 feet off the side of a cliff when the repelling rope broke and I broke my back and crushed my ankle bone. I know I was young and stupid (20 when discharged). I have off and on fought for more disability throughout the last 20 years. As of April 2008, I was upgraded to 40% -20% for my back and 20% for my ankle. I have been unable to sustain gainful employment for almost 10 years and in October I was diagnosed by the VA Psychiatrist with PTSD. I have been seeing a social worker and Psychiatrist through the VA since October. On the first assessment I had I was given a GFC score of 55. I have no idea what I am currently rated at. I had a C&P today with a QTC Dr. He would not let my wife in the room during the evaluation and even though I think the meeting went well, I am concerned that I may not be granted SC for my PTSD. I need to understand that if I am granted at least 30% I will have a total rating of 70% which means I would then apply for unemployability. Is that automatically given or are there more steps to be taken.
