Only if you can counter whatever your SOC says was the reasoning for their decision. Good luck!

Are you working? You have enough to get IU if you are not working. If you are working it is hard to get a higher rating for a mental health disorder. That is the main factor in gettting a higher rating.

It might not be what you wanted, but, at least you got a decision on your appeal, and an increase...Great Job...

Have you ever been able to work since you broke your back in 4 places while on active duty? Have you received compensation awards along with your initial discharge? Do you go to the VAMC for routine pain clinic visits? Behavioral Health visits? Ever had any IMO's or IME's ?

Do your SMR/STR validate your service connected injuries? Make sure you have treatment records post discharge too for the problems you claimed during in-service. Do you use a VSO? If so, what advise do you receive from him/her too?

How long have you been challenging the VA?

Start using the VA and file a NOD

The VA is free.

Now have you add your kids so you get the extra money for them? make sure you get the life insurance and have them as to get the payout.

  • 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.
