Welcome to Hadit. If you can show a link to service for your SSD you should not have to hard a time connecting but it will take awhile.

Good Luck

Welcome,

First off, I wouldn't put much stock into the VA providing resolve or answers to your claim issues

within 30 days, as someone else posted you might get a letter from them stating something like

we received your claim and will be working on it.

Chance's are slim that VA will be as prompt as SSA (six months).

When was the active duty portion of your army guard ?

Were you deployed ? If yes, When and to Where ?

You posted you have MDD - bipolar - PTSD and general anxiety.

What conditions have you requested service connection for ?

How do you feel theses are related to active duty ?

VA compensates for one mental health disability, even if other's are comorbid.

Just curious, how long were you in the guard?

Do you have a permanent address? If not get a P.O. box. The VA has to be able to send you mail. The best evidence you have is your SSDI approval if it is for PTST etc. Are you homeless? You really need a permanent address and phone. The VA can help homeless vets. Try not to change VARO's while you wait for your decision. Big moves across country etc can foul things up for you. When you are young and down and out there is the temptation to think going some place else will solve your problems, but it ain't so. I was disabled at a young age (21) and I drifted around with no fixed address. My permanent address was my mother's home for mail and phone messages.

    • 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:
