got the letter here te denial..

treatment records from vamc do not show that you are unable to work as result of your seervice connected disabilties.Records from Social Security indicate you have disability benifits since nov 2002 due to open wounds of the upper limb and anxiety related to the attack you suffered at your home. you are not service connected for these conditions. tdui is denied becasue you have not been found unable to secure or follow a substantially gainful occupation as a result of service connected disabilities. you are CONSIDERED unemployable due to nonservice-connected factors. the service connected disabilites when considered Apart from the nonservice connected conditions are not the casue of unemployability.

im 40% back 30% migrians, 20% ankle and achillis tendnitis, 10% for left lower sciaticia and 10% for right lower sciaticia.... in a wheel chair....can stand for short time and cant really walk at all... ok now they say i am unemplyabile due to non service connection and service is not.... what do i do ? try to get my dr at the va to say i am unemplyable due to service conneced...this will be hard to say the least...lol

You need to get a private doctor to say you are unemployable due solely to your SC conditions. He needs to review your SMR's.

IMHO......I would go to VOC REHAB and schedule a meeting with a counselor. I would tell the counselor that your SC conditions are making you unemployable. If the counselor writes a letter stating that you are unemployable.

POOF.....that's all you need for new evidence for your IU claim! It works, this is how I was approved for IU!

Best of Luck!

You are going to have to file a NOD on the decision.

Then get a Pro Bono attorney.

  • 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.


    • 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.

    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
