Question

I'm rated 80% SC and have been getting SCD dated from Feb. 08. In 07 I was turned down by the VA for TDIU because of something I was suppose to have said. Some where I was suppose to have told someone I was working. I sure don't remember saying anything like that to anybody, since I have not been working from 05 to present. Any how, SCD was awarded me with the primary reason of a non-service connected problem. Secondary was the listing of all my service connected injury's. My question is how am I suppose to work, VA says I can, when the SC say's I'm disabled and unable to work? If I work, I lose SC. I filed a nod last year and have not heard a world from the VA. Anyone else with this problem and time frame for the VA to answer a NOD. Any suggestions to get these moving or give me another turn down. None of my service ratings are rated more then 30%, but the total to date is 80%. I am going to file another claim for ID because of all the drugs they have given me. Reading from these forums, I would guess I will be given another 10% increase which should move me to 90%. Thanks all for your answers.

Please reread your post and post it again with the correct abbreviations. I can't make heads or tails of what you're asking. SCD? SC? ID? Another 10% added to 80% will probably keep you at 80%.

Do you have a letter from a medical professional stating that you can't work?

Have you gone to VocRehab and had them make such a statement?

Those are a couple of good places to start.

Sorry, SC= service connected, SCD= social security disability, ID=erectile dysfunction.

My primary VA care doctor wrote a letter stating just that. Only he also put my other disability, (back) in the letter also. Of course they read it as being my only disability, instead of all my service connected problems listed also. I'll check into the VocRehab. Looks to me as the VA is putting all the problem on the back. Sure the back surgery was a big problem, it along with all my other problems, (gun shot wounds, PTSD, etc). The total of all my problems is what caused me to get out of my own business. I tried and just could not do what needed to be done and had to retire. I sure didn't want to do that, it just comes a time when you need to call it quits.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a 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.
