Iu Claim Awaiting Decision Approval W/o Scheduling Me A C&p For Iu



8/1/2013 filed for an increase for PTSD on at 30% (overall SC 40%).

10/15/2013 C&P exam for increase - Examiner stated I was unable to be employed due to SC in his report and was very helpful to my case.

1/5/2014 approved increase for 70% PTSD with new diagnosis of MDD secondary (overall SC 80%). IU differed.

6/18/2014 ebenefits changed claim status from review of evidence to awaiting decision approval. Also a dependency claim from 3/13/2013 has changed to decision notification.

MY question is, is it likely that them never giving me a C&P for IU is positive or negetive for my claim? Checked AB8 and nothing has changed so I don't believe they have updated anything yet because I dont believe my dependency claim would have been denied.

Does anyone have any expericnce with a situation such as this? Does anyone have some insite or even a guess as to what my chances are of approval or denial? I know its case by case but I have never heard of them not scheduling a C&P to make a decision.

It is possible they have enough medical info to award the IU without another C & P exam.

This is still current info,in my opinion:

"10/15/2013 C&P exam for increase - Examiner stated I was unable to be employed due to SC in his report and was very helpful to my case."

Do you get SSDi solely for the 80% SCs? If so, does VA have the SSDI records?

Berta, I am in the process of filing for SSDI, I took way too long to decide to file for it I know.

Thank you both for your input, it helps with the waiting game to have positive opinions.

Update- I cant thank you all enough for the help you have been to me and so many other veterans that are not experts regarding the claim for benefits process and the off the wall actions and messages the VA sometimes throws our way. This site has helped me more than anyone will know. That being said, I guess I got approved for IU yesterday 6/21/14 I have not received my BBE yet but my Ebenefits has my AB8 stating that I am now paid at 100% rate with my new payment amount W/dependents posted. So I guess sometimes it is a good thing when you are not scheduled for a C&P exam. One last question, where do I find a list or document stating what my "new privledges or benefits" are exactly now that I am IU? Once again thank you everyone for all of your support and info.

    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.


    • 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.


    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.
