    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

What More Do They Want?

Question

Received a packet in the mail yesterday that the VA wants more information on my TDIU claim. They have a PTSD exam that says that I'm unable to work. They have a letter from my Neurologist that I'm unable to work. Just spent about a week were I was unable to walk. They still will not rate me from my last PTSD exam :angry:. Lets see: Parkinsons, DMII, PTSD, PM, Sleep Apena, etc. etc. etc. sure I'm employable. Maybe, I will apply at the VA. Just pissed. Sorry.

Write a 21-4138 and explain that you have no further evidence to submit and to please rate your claim.

I think they are stalling.

They seem to give us old KY boys a hard time regardless of what state we live in.

Sounds like a VCAA deal. Need to check the no more evidence section (something like that) & at least return that form. Then this soon be rated.

Good luck,

Don

Papa-I thought that you recd VCAA Packet from what I was reading. If you did it would have form that you could ckeck box & sign. Could be you are talking about something else. If I can remember where I put it I'll dig my last VCAA pack out & see exactly what it says.

It is the form J is referring to. I wanted to talk to my Lawyer before I did anything, but they are not responding. I will take my own action soon.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading

    • 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.
