Better Late I Hope.


Recommended Posts

My name is Bill. I started asking questions with out posting here. I am a Vietnam Vet ( FO Army)with an 80% (PTSD 70% Diabetes Type ll 10%) current rating. I live outside of Buffalo NY.I am currently on SSDI and waiting for VA unemployabilty. I feel best when I'm riding my motorcycle and have to concentrate on those around me. I've ridden to the west coast and back and loved every minute. Going over the Rocky Mountains was exceptionally spiritual so to speak. Talk about reaching for the clouds!

I have been playing games with the VA since 1993(maybe that's backwards lol) and hope that this is finally wrapped up soon. I had a great job when I had my melt down in 2012. Needless to say I've not worked since. I try to stay as active as I can.

I look forward to not only asking, but giving help when I can.

Welcome aboard Bill.

I live in the rural hills of NY myself in the southern tier of the Appalachian Plateau.

My husband (deceased, Vietnam AO IHD, DMII ,PTSD, 1151) and I have dealt with the Buffalo VARO since 1988.

Is the SSDI solely for the SC conditions? If so, does VA know that?

"I have been playing games with the VA since 1993"

I bet. I have had a War of the Words with Buffalo RO on and off for decades.

And am presently a claimant there again. They made an error in their last award letter to me.

The error involves 18 months of accrued 100% plus SMC they forgot to pay me.
