Should I?

Question

Should I open a claim for entitlement to individual unemployability? I received a letter, with the following statements from the Department of Veterans Affairs, Vocational and Rehabilitation Counselor:

“After carefully reviewing the evidence, I have determined that it is not reasonable to expect you to be able to train for or get a suitable job at this time.”

“In reaching my decision, I considered the following evidence: our discussion on September 1, 2009 determining that you will focus on utilizing individual mental health treatment in order to gain stability concerning your PTSD.”

Vietnam veteran with a SC disability rated at 90% with the following conditions:

PTSD 70%

Myocardial Infarction 60%

Tinnitus (bilateral) 10%

Hypertension 10%

Medications: Ambien, HCTZ, Atenolol, Fosinopril, Simvastatin, Zoloft

Thanks to all for your comments/advice.

The letter is great evidence for TDIU. Also if you can not work, apply for Social Security Disability. Today! Terry
