Omg Oh My Goodness Omg I Am Elated


halos2

Question

Was dragging my self in the house after being at VAMC 2 days and driving 136 miles each way and thought I would bug my VSO. They said "We called and left you a message earlier on your answering machine...WHAT? I didn't get a call on my cell...No on your home answering machine !"

To tell you you won and were awarded 40% for your fibromyalgia secondary to PTSD!! Had her read it to me twice to make sure I was hearing her correctly.

So she says now put in for TDIU....OK I will fax you tomorrow.

Then I thought about it and remembered I put in for TDIU 2-3 years ago and it was never decided on...

So I talked to my good friend Larry, and will find my original copy and will proceed with my statement in support of claim info...

What next? Maybe they will do me right and get my 04 claim worked out after all it did come back from the BVA remanded in 02/2010.

So folks I am amazed and grateful for all the support shown when I was moping around in a funk!

These process's all started in 03...

....oh yeah, one other thing, do not forget to attach a copy of your original app for TDIU (hopefully you used a form 21-8940 "application for increase in disability due to unemployabilty" or whatever it's called), to your 21-4138!

Ask them WHY. Wasn't the ORIGINAL 21-8940 sufficient?

(surround yourself with the ORIGINAL EED.......protect IT if possible)

The ONLY reason that I can think of for them requesting another "new" version is that the reason that you were granted disability was NOT the same reasoning that you verbalized to the VA as the reason for your TDIU claim. Bearing in mind, of course, that an official TDIU app is a request for increase in an existing sc'd disability.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    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.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
