Ssa Helps Va Claims?

Rate this question



In the threads that were closed on the member dean a lot of folks were referring to SSA records. Maybe I am dense but how can SSA records help a claim? Unless you all are referring to SSDI records which I then could understand.

Yes - we mean the same thing-

Maybe best to say SSDI-

If SSA awards SSDI solely for service connected conditions,then this is probative evidence for TDIU.

The SSDI records would usually contain an independent medical opinion supporting that award.

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

There are a couple of cases you need to read on this issue. One is Murincsak v. Derwinski which has a link on the right side of the main page leading in to hadit. You also need to read Quartuccio v. Principi. I would also recommend you read Hayes v. Brown. Also I recommend you become familiar with 38 CFR 3.159 ( c ). All of these pertain to Social Security records and how V.A. is required to obtain them.
