    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

Looking For Good Lawyer In Northern Wisconsin

Recommended Posts

All,

Not for me, but my wife. She was denied today for her Social Security Disability Claim. I'm sure she has a claim and could win with the right lawyer. I did read how they are compensated, so I understand that part.

Her initial claim was for Chronic Pain Syndrome from bialteral knee surgery, for which she is diagnosed with, however, not on the Social Security list of maledies. She had many more complications and medical issues and we could have proceeded in the wrong direction with the (1st/initial) claim.

Anyway, we (she) has 60 days to request an appeal.

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks,

Hamslice

Actually going to Mayo Clinic in Rochester today. She is having 2 minor (but compicated) surgeries tomorrow.

I recommend contacting the National Org of Social Security Claimants Representatives at http://nosscr.org for a referral in your area. The one I had referred from them won me 7 yrs retro. jmo

All,

We did our own reconsideration, by ourselves as she recieved 2 additional diagnosis's for two new maladies shortly after the denile. Then two months ago she was ultimatly diagnossed with Progresive MS. She talked to the local SS office when she recieved that news and they had her send in those doctor reports. Also, when at her Neurologist last week, the doc said that she had been contacted by SS and that she had sent her stuff to them and also the second opinion that she had sent my wife to, to confirm the Progresive MS. Her Neurologist stated that the SS usually wants a second opinion and that should suffice. She, the neurologist, offered this up and we did not ask for it, so maybe they are working on my wifes case.

Anyway, I have been reading some of the other SS posts and have a question:

My wife stopped working 11/2011 and initially filed 11/2012. If awarded SSDI, would it go back to when she filled or to when she stopped working? Minus the six months, etc...

Thanks,

Hamslice

They will probably go back to 11/2011, however they may also decide to go w/the date of the MS onset, as it's a new disability and from what I gather you haven't appealed their initial denial. jmo

    • 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.
