  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Rating Experts Opinion....how Does Bipolar Effect Ptsd Claim


Recommended Posts

“Are they trying to find loopholes to
screw me “

Possibly......that is the normal; MOS
for VA sometimes.....BUT …

“i have ssdi FOR PTSD and my
inability to work from this. “ If this is solely for the PTSD (and
no other MH conditions) this is an independent medical opinion that
the VA MUST consider to rate you as TDIU.

Have you applied for TDIU? We have the
form and a forum here on TDIU (paid at the 100% rate)

What is the last thing you heard from
VA regarding the claim?

Do you have a vet rep helping you?

You said you didnt claim bi

This is the stuff VA should focus on:

“My c & p reads in pertinent ares
as such:

Were there hospitizations for mental
Three stays for ptsd. “

With the SSDI award (do they know of
that yet) and the C & P exam I really dont foresee any progblems
with the TDIU claim but then again the VA throws us lots of landmines

That is what hadit is for.....you
yourself have already realized that and that is a good thing!!!!

Welcome aboard here and thank you for
your service!

I think you will be OK on this claim but

"Doesnt the va request the info pertaining to my ssdi from ssa."

Yeah, if you signed an authorization form for them to do that. I think it is form 21-22...maybe your VSO should make sure they got those records.

You wouldn't believe the rigamorale the VA caused when my husband got SSDI for PTSD.

I actually had to call the SSA office in Baltimore and then kick some VA ass. He died a few months later and could have been alive to see his 100% if the VA had not screwed up so much. They posthumously awarded him 100% P & T for PTSD 3 years after his death. There is plenty wrong with that picture.

I am assuming however that the SSDI award will help you....like if it is all for PTSD.

"I really dont remember what i stated as my disability for ssdi but i know i was inpatient for ptsd at the time" Makes sense it would be solely for PTSD.

But hard to be completely sure on that......

I think you will be OK because PTSD is Axis one and your C&P looks good to me. These conditions bleed into each other. To separate depression, anxiety disorder, sleep disorder and PTSD is just not possible unless their is a physical reason in the brain.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!


      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
