Records Question

Question

Guest jangrin

Does anyone know?

When you file for SSD. They ask if you were in the military service. When they are gathering your records to make a decision for benefits I know they get the most recent records to review, but do they also get the entire MSR's including the 30 year old "in-service" records?

Thanks,

Jangrin :unsure:

SSD does not really care about old records. Their main concern is your present disability and the how long is may last and whether you meet their disabiltiy guidelines. The VA only looks at old records to investigate a claim for in service conditions.

They do work together as to the actual disability portion sharing information.

the only other part of military service in pre-1956 service tiem gets you extra credit towards your SS or SSD.

Thanks all, I was just wondering because I thought if they got the old SMR's I could get a copy of them from Social Security rather than waiting for them from NARA. It's been a while and we are still waiting. I thought maybe SS had them and if they had requested they would probably get them quicker than we would. It was just a thought. Thanks again.

You know I don't think the VA even looks at the old medical records when you ask for an increase. If you are already service connected they just look at the most recent treatment records to determine your degree of disability.

John999,

I wish I could say my husband was service connected. We are "newbies" at this. Ya know still learning the ropes so to speak. We need to lok at my husbands MSR's cuz he doesn't remember much about vietnam and I think he's hoping the records will help him with dates and times. So we need to keep waiting on the govenment to send them to us. But good news we talked to Dr. Bash yesterday and he thinks he can help us. So we are excited about that.

Thanks for your help,

Jangrin :unsure:

Getting the initial service connection is the hardest part, especially for PTSD and anything that develops later on years after discharge.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”
