Question

I am presently rceiving 80% disability with 50 % PTSD. My VA phychlogist recomends that I should not be working. I went to a Private Phychiatrist and she wrote a report recomending that I not work. I sent in the proper paper work to the VA along with report from Doctor. Also my therapist at the Vet center is in agreement. I have been woking as a Lic. Opticiam for 37 years but now work has become a stressor . I have extreme anxiety at work that makes work too difficult. Medication helps only slightlly. Upon the Doctors recommendation I quit work and am now just waiting for VA response. Just wanted to opinion as to my chances for 100% PTSD IU. Thanks, Doc Kelly

That Doc's note should help you as long as the RO gives it some weight.

You should apply for SSDI as well while you are at it.

It sounds like your evidence is good as long as

"Lic. Opticiam for 37 years but now work has become a stressor" is not misconstrued by the VA.

Did any of these doctor's statement say it is because of your SC disabilities that they consider you to be unemployable?

Anxiety at work is related to PTSD from veitnam war. This info is availble to VA.

I have applied for PTSD IU. I have send VA all the required paper work including statement from private phychiatrist stating that she recomended that I stop working and I did. VA phychologist agrees that I should not work. Got letter from VA that I have an appointment with QTC Phychologist for eval.or something. I meet all the rquirments for PTSD IU 50% PTSD, 80% total is this appoitment a good or bad thing.

It is a "necessary thing", neither "good" nor "bad".

For you to be awarded TDIU you must have a C&P exam...........just as in all cases for claims, regardless (I know, there ARE exceptions, but.....).

And, by-the-way, you did not actually file a claim for "PTSD IU", you filed a claim for an "increase in disability", but, that's neither here nor there at this point.

I assume, by your posting that you have already been "officially diagnosed" with PTSD by a VA psychiatrist or board certified psychologist?

  • 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.
