    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

    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

C&p Exam



I am currently getting 70% PTSD,I had my c&p exam yesterday for my IU.I felt it went really well in my favor for getting 100% IU.Is there a such thing as 100% IU and 100% TDIU? I felt it went in my favor because towards the end of the screening the examiner said I have serious PTSD symptoms and he said i cannot work.He said he's going to complete my report right away and send it off.Does it seem like I will be awarded 100%? Thanks.

If you applied for TDIU, they will probably award TDIU and not 100%...hard to say....

100% IU, is where you are SC for 70% but VA pays you at the 100% rate, meaning that the 70% you have is the highest %s, but those conditions keep you from working. Schedular 100% is where all of the veteran's SC conditions add up to 100%. As far as my case, yes you are right I should be Permanent, yet the VA is screwing with me. I just had C&Ps a few weeks ago, and it looks like I will be granted SC for Back, L Knee, Asthma and Hemorroids. Also the VA made me go thru Reviews like my PTSD, Chrons and Migraines/TBI, which will back fire on them, cause it looks like those conditions will be increased. I hope to be permanent soon. Sorry to ramble on about my case, good luck to you and keep us posted.

Hi everyone :biggrin: I requested for a increase in about 8 contentions that are currently service connected from 0% to 30% per, a couple of weeks ago i had a C&P that i thought was the best i ever had by far.. I also asked for TDIU, the C&P exam notes were on ebene's for the past weeks and i have tried my best to pick it apart but i am a Rookie Monster and would like some help. Special inquiry to my TDIU? The Dr. per C&P Medical opinion section makes a statement that after all the comments made in my favor per condition. :ohmy: For example i will put a bit of the exam notes that show impact, its not all, but some conditions

14. Functional impact
Regardless of the Veteran's current employment status, do the condition(s)
listed in the Diagnosis Section impact his or her ability to perform any type
of occupational task (such as standing, walking, lifting, sitting, etc.)?
[X] Yes [ ] No
16. Functional impact
Does the Veteran's thoracolumbar spine (back) condition impact on his or her
ability to work?
[X] Yes [ ] No
If yes describe the impact of each of the Veteran's thoracolumbar
spine (back) conditions providing one or more examples:
"I can not lift and stand up or sit down for prolonged period of
time". On top of it he has major issues with significant chronic
headache condition.
Now here is my question .. for TDIU.. i think it does not look good, but why after several "yes it impacts employability"
His primarily condition for which he decided to quit working 28 months ago
as a Computer Technician is chronic frequent headaches which he states also
affected his ability to concentrate. His chronic constant back and chronic
bilateral knees have affected his ability on weight bearing activitiees
including prolonged standing/walking and sometimes driving due to pain on
left knee.
The current headache frequency although is relatively is still frequent
2-3X/week from 3-5X/week with current medications his headache seems to be
easily alleviated by the prescribed acute medication of
He is also bothered by the decreased concentration on the job due to
His musculoskeletal joint conditions which include lower back and bilateral
knee pains affects his ability to travel, prolonged standing and walking.
Although still chronic, he has regular medications of Motrin 800mg BID to
decreased its intensity.
Without question at this time, that his impairment affects his ability to do
any job which requires a lot of physical activities.
At this time, with all his current conditions mentioned & considered above,
it doesn't preclude him from doing any sedentary type of work.
I will be willing to post the whole:
Just let me know everyone that views this
