What Now?

Rate this question



I was finally approved for SSDI. I took a copy of the letter to the VSO. I have been fighting with VA since 2004 over compensation and since 2005 about unsuccessful surgery on both SC knees. My doctor said that my condition is permanent but VA has been pushing my decision back. The even went so far as to say that there is no evidence of knee surgery. They have the surgery summary stating that surgery was done on both knees and a second right knee surgery 5 months later.

I am in Atlanta, GA. How much longer should I expect to wait before VA do what SSA did and what I expected 3 and a half years ago?

SSA decided that I could not obtain and or hold substantial employment, to VA that should equate to TDIU P&T. I filed for it more than 2 years ago. I have been on corticosteriods continuously since 1986. Why can't I get the 60% that I should according to title 38?

IRIS is of no help. VA has a letter from my surgeon that my condition is permanent. It has not helped. My doctor wrote the letter in January 2007 and I hand carried it to VA the same month.

Thanks for all of the postings. I read mostly and once in a while I'll post a reply/response. But thanks to everyone. I did get a lump sum from SSDI that Aenta now wants the Lions share of.
