Ptsd 70% <Paying 100% Unemployable

Question

Hello my sisters and brothers,

I have a question I know for sure one of you will have the answer to.First was given an sc for ptsd at 70% paying 100%IU.

I was told to put in for 100% pt which I did to get a date started on this claim. I received a notice that it was concidered a non-claim because

I was aready drawing 100% Unimployability. also sent paper work showing that I have been trying to get work since Dec 2008, through the texas state

work force comissions veterans program.And of course they have all my records that state that my condition is stagnate and my meds have been increased

througt out my my treatment. My question is- what do I have to do to get these people to declare me 100% permanent and total??? Its been 4 years now of trying

to get better or find a job on these meds that make it impossible to do any work at all.I'm going broke trying to keep up with my wifes medical bills,It would

be nice if I could enroll her into chapter 35,it would help out with our medical bills greatly> THANK YOU BANDIDO BILL

You can be TDIU P&T. All that will change is you will be entitled to extra benefits like ChampVA for family, and other stuff you don't get now

I feel ,when a vet gets TDIU,and some retro, they might want to consider getting an IMO from a Voc Rehab specialist with that retro for the purposes of supporting a P & T claim.

Some disabilities could be difficult to warrant a P & T status but the benefits of P & T are enormous-if an IMO would help.

I have never had a single problem with CHAMPVA and I used Chapter 35 as well.

I have not been medicated for many months now but as I recall CHAMPVA paid 75 % of my meds and will pay that for most brand name meds as well as generics.

I went on the DASH diet and don't need BP meds anymore but I certainly can imagine how this benefit could save money for your wife's health care.

Did the award letter state why they did not find you P & T?

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
