    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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.
    • 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?”

    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

C&p Exams (No Clue)



Lumbar spine.pdfKnee and Lower leg.pdfHip and thigh.pdf

During my last C&P exam, this is what the doctor annotated. Have no idea if its good or bad. In my claim, I did not put sciatic nerves or radiculopathy, but I noticed it was mentioned by the doc. Should I go VARO and claim them or wait for the outcome. Currently rated at 90%,Lateral meniscus L/knee 30%, Exercise induced asthma 30%,Patellogemoral pain R/Knee 20%, Depressive disorder 30%, Degenerative Joint Disease L/Knee 30%, Impringement syndrome L/Shoulder 10%,R/ankle 10%,Hypertension with ED 10%, psueudo barbae 10%, Thoraic spine strain 10%. I was MEB in 2002 and medically retired from the Federal prison in 2009. I applied for IU due to retirements and denied. Submitted NOD in 2010 of July. Was also denied Social Security.

I don't know anything about the SSA denial, but it sounds like you need to appeal it, or refile for disability.

I'd also say that it may be moot of you have reached full retirement age for SSA.

I think the technical problem with VA TDIU right now is that you don't have a single disability rated at 40% or more. I can't judge what your exams mean. I would appeal both VA and SSD and never give up. If you have to hire a lawyer for both VA and SSD then do it. It would be worth it. You need evidence from doctors outside the VA system that will say you can't work due to your SC conditions.

I understand the 40% percent rating that i need, i would hoping someone was able to determing by looking at the worksheet. I did noticed that the doctor answered due to my disability that I was unable to work. My left knee was replaced twice and still having problems. He noted that there was deformity, pain on movement, and atrophy of disuse. I'm hoping these two will get me over the hump. I was checking ebenefits today, and notice DDD which I did not apply for.

What kind of doctor did you have do this? I'm going to schedule an apt and bring in the C&P forms for the VA dr. to fill out, because I've never got a C&P scheduled by my RO even though my VA files has VA Docs dx me with problems.

This also was my thinking, and now checking the ebenefits it seems they are pushing my dates for finalizing to June 2013. The last conversation I was told that had until February at the latest. Spoke with my DAV rep, and his words were that my case is still new(BS).
