Hello All ….

I’m seeking advice with this …SSDI.

I’m a medically retired (PDRL) veteran from uncle sam misguided children. I have a service connected disability of 80% combined, 70% MDD and 10% Knee. I’ve been unemployed since 2008, I’m 59yrs old. I’ll be 60 this year.

Recently I filled for social security disability on 24 November 2014. I personally went to MY local SS office to fill my claim for MDD. I submitted my VA award letter, my C&P examination and letters from my psycho therapist (MHO) I’ve been going to her since 2012 on a biweekly frequency for treatments.

On 4 December 2014 I received the Function adult form and the Work history Form. I filled both of them out and sent them back including a MENTAL Residual Functional Capacity form from my psycho therapist.

From reading in the forum and also the internet, this is very scary to me. You have two federal agencies The VA and SS. And each one has there rules ….

I think I will get approve

I’ve paid into the system (social security) for over 38 years of my life. 6.2% out of every pay check. From talking with the SS representative he said he doesn’t think I’ll have a problem. But you never know. He said I would get 16k retro back pay, and $1337.00 a month.

In the meantime I’m still waiting on my appeal and my NOD from VA since March 2014.

What are you guys thoughts …Thanks …

I don't see a problem. What was the last day you worked?

You're age will work in your favor with SSDI. If you're over 55 they consider it more difficult to get hired.

Have you ever filed for TDIU with your 80% VA combined rating? I don't see you SSDI being a problem. They ask about your last 10 yrs of working history? I would suggest if you have not applied for TDIU to do so especially if you receive SSDI and vice versa.

My last day employed was June 27, 2008. The SSA rep said i fell within in the cutoff date. That is why he gave me the total of reto pay that i would receive. I still don't trust these guys. I'm hurting financially. Living off $1551.00 a month is very very hard. I filled for a NOD and a appeal. What i can't understand, is that the contracted VA C&P shrink said i could not be in a work place or social setting, why did the rater give me a 80% and send me paper work to fill for TDIU ...so i filled an NOD and appeal, back in March 2014 and i'm still waiting ...

  • 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.


    • 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
