What Do You Think My % May Be

Question

I finally received the Draft Narsum, I was just hoping for some input from you guys since you have been here before. My 2 Medically unacceptable things are PTSD, Lumber spondylosis, Failed back syndrome. I had 2 back surgeries within the past 1 1/2 and my spine is still not fused together (25%), theyalso replaced 3 disc. I have other little issues but Im not concerned with them. Do you guys think that with the Diagnosis below plus my back I will be medically retired. Ive got 12 years in and 2 depolyments

axis1: PTSD-309.81

axis2: none-799.9

axis3: refer to medical

axis4:moderate-severe(pain, familial, occupational, health, transition

axisV: 55

I would appreciate any feedback, I a little nervous. Dont like the idea of my future out of my hands so to say

PLEASE, every issue you have you need to be concern with it now. no, matter how small, especially if you are still on active duty. Get check-out and start making a copy of your medical records.

If you ar medical re-tired will you be a 100% disable from VA.

Welcome to Hadit. Your medical evaluation should get you a medical retirement but I don;t know how the Military looks at this.

Good Luck

The thing I don't know is if you would get over 30% and military retirement pension or just medical discharge with pay. Either way you will probably get more from the VA when and if you get 100%. You have 2 conditions the military says are the reasons you can't stay in the AF. That is all they consider and rate you on for military retirement. I don't know the AF criteria for those disabilites. Somebody here does.

Thanks for the feedback, I must have skipped over entering my rank when I set up the account, no way Im a E-2. Oh well got to letgo of the rank at some point. I have put in claims for all the other little things only reason I said I wasnt concerned with them is cause right now Im only concerned with getting retired. I like this website alot it has great information. Glad I stumbled upon it.

The PEB forum suggests that the Draft Narsum can be amended if it is not accurate.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
