Need Advice


Brother Gate

Question

Hello Vets, Finally received notification. Increased from 80% to 90% but denied tdiu apparently because of a non-definitive c&p. Should I try to tackle ssdi first? I was denied last year and was waiting on this claim to resolve before going any further. I have attached the ruling. Any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks, Bro' Gate

Get a medical opinion that you can't work and appeal this decision. You could also apply for vocational rehabilitation and if they find that you can't be rehabilitated that would help with TDIU. You should apply for SSDI anyway if you can't work, but don't wait for SSDI to file an appeal on the TDIU. You can do more than one thing at a time. If you get an IMO you could ask for reconsideration of your TDIU denial. You need evidence that you can't work. Medical evidence is best.

I love it I see cases they deny IU when the vet has SSDI and now when they do not. Appeal the SSDI ruling, many states you have to do this 3 times.

I did not see any place in the write-up of the neuropathy and how it may keep you from working. I have worked with some vets where it keeps them from walking long and some that can not work with their hands due to it. Look at all of your disabilities and their secondary issues and make sure they addressed them I see they did miss the one. at 90% you need to send in the NOD and point out just how bad you are.

If you had write up from your past jobs send them in as proof you do not work well with other. If your neuropathy is now in your hands, tell them that and you can not do that type of work. small fiber neuropathy will take special testing to find and Dx. look it up. Many gulf war vets have it that is where I learned of for I have it.

I only scaned an edited version. I had a total of 10 issues with only sucessful resolution in 4 items. I have neuropathy at 20% in lower extremities both left and right with dm2 to include pn of the bilateral upper extremities. My claim for gerd and barrets esophagus was denied pending proof of secondary connection to anxiety/ptsd.

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
