How Much Medical Records?


stillhere

Question

I did not see this question asked so thought I would and see where this goes. I am 61 and filing for SSDI because of this last disability added I have just had enough and finding it very tough to work. Or anything for that matter.

I am 60% heart (prior MI)

20% DM2

10% PN all hands/feet

50% PTSD

the PTSD is and has been the worse. Anyhow filled out and sent in the application and going to drop by medical records Monday or Tuesday.

my question do I just include medical from like 2003 forward or do I have to include as much as I have and then names of every doctor I have ever seen?

My health started to go south in 03 after a DX of DM2 so I was thinking of just sending from 03 to present?

how did you guys/dolls do it?

Stillhere,

When I created my hubby's claim, I included medical documentation back quite aways. HOWEVER, SS is interested in if you are capable of working or not so I think if you concentrated on using the O*Net online job description breakdown to show the areas you are unable to work now, you might be more in line with criteria of SS. I think that ended up more helpful for my hubby than going back to your beginnings. :)

If you can show deterioration of your working ability and back it up with medical documentation, you could demonstrate how your abilities have become negligible.

Hope that helps.

And I know that you have filed for TDIU when you received your heart or PTSD percentage ratings.....and you are getting your $2800 a month for your TDIU. Good. That's good. Because some folks are kinda "slow" if ya get my drift.

See there, I just KNEW that I'd find someone THIS very week, that has filed for TDIU, using the proper VA form #21-8940 and that is now receiving the money due them!

I feel better already.

just sayin............................

......and the goat is done and quite tasty!

stillhere,

my attorney gave me a form for my Dr to fill out after an examination. My dr reviewed all my past medical records & determined I couldn't perform even sedantary work.

This is what got my claim approved.

i hope I do not have to go the attorney route and this can be done as easily as it should be. Thanks for the responses and as I have most of my records from VA and one of my other doctors I will give them copies of those and let them get the rest.

I am 61 so I am only 1 year a head of my date for SSA so I hope this does not get held up.

I got my award for 100% shedular from the VA in the form of an email and money in the bank. I am waiting to go to the SS until I have that paper work. Hope it comes today.

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
