Question

Greetings All.

Many thanks to the forum.

Jan 2007- Filed a claim for PTSD with VA. Submitted IMO which states Permanently unable to work based solely on my PTSD.(which is the same Dr. that now treats me at the VA). Awarded 10% Oct. 2007

Jan 2007- Filed a claim for PTSD with SSA. Awarded FULL disability benefits June 2007, based solely on my SC PTSD. At that time, I did not submit documents to VA.

Jan 2009- Filed for VocRehab, and was approved, still rated at 10% VA compensation.

May 2009- Filed claim for increase, and requested IU, but did not complete for 21-8940.

March 2010- Increase approved to 30% and IU denied because 21-8940 was not submitted.

April 2010- Filed for an increase once again,Submitted my SSA records, and VA requested records as well.VA references my SSA award in decision rating: You have significant restrictions dealing with others, and cannot adequately relate to the public, and showed my records as evidence. Remember, my SSA award is based solely on my SC disability of PTSD.

Sept 2010- Evaluation of PTSD, which is currently 30% disabling is continued.

May 2011- VocRehab was found to be infeasible.

Feb. 2014- filed for an increase. Submitted new evidence, evidence of failed VocRehab, and also submitted SSA records once again, letters from family members.

Sept 2014- C&P

Oct 2014- Saw movement on ebennies. Claim went from ROE to PDA within 2 weeks.

Oct 30 2014- Claim moved back to GOE. Status changed, and reads:

You may be entitled to compensation at the 100 percent rate if you are unable to secure and follow a substantially gainful occupation because of your service-connected disabilities. If you believe you qualify, complete, sign, and return the enclosed VA Form 21-8940, Veterans Application for Increased Compensation Based on Unemployability.

Date Requested: 10/30/2014
Due Date: 11/29/2014
Am I to gather that I have been rated high enough to meet the schedular requirements for IU? I feel I have provided ample evidence of severe disability due to my PTSD. Unfortunately I am experiencing a financial hardship, and I do not have the time to wait for the IU process, although I have not worked since 2006. I contacted 1800 and also IRIS, requesting to defer mu claim for IU and proceed with a formal rating decision based on the evidence of record.
with all this being said, since my claim is in the GOE stage, is it possible for me to submit a request to have my claim be granted the highest rating possible with the earliest effective date, dating back to my SSA award date? The evidence provides a clear indication of impaired functioning sufficient for the highest rating possible..or should I await the formal rating, then file a CUE? Thanks so much in advance.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

    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
