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.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
