    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.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Finally Got My Denial Letter From The Va


Shalia

Question

Denied for TDIU based on "wasn't shown you are unable to work based on SC disabilities".

I don't get how I can fight this? I already SHOWED that. I've been out of work. I showed at my last job that I missed more than 1/3 of each YEAR due to my SC disability. With paystubs to prove it. (Showing short term disability and sick leave.) They've seen my GAF score which hasn't been higher than a 40 in three years. They have my hospitalization records, which show I've been hospitalized 7 times in three years.

All I could *assume* was that they were saying "you go to school, ergo, you could work" but they don't seem to be saying that. Can I assume this was the crappy C&P exam I had that reared it's ugly head? Can I demand another exam saying I have two doctors (one VA, one a private doctor of my own) that say I can't work, and only one C&P examiner that seems to think I can? I have no clue what to do here.

How do I fight this ruling?

For the record, this is what they have me with now.

Bipolar 70%

TMJ 20%

Post surgery pain in right knee 10%

Carpal tunnel right hand 10%

Epicondylitis Right 10%

In VA math this equals 80%.

I now have letters from all my professors talking about my emotional lability in classes and my poor attendance based on psychological issues. But if that's not what they denied me for, I don't even know if that will help! HELP. What do I do? The thought of going back to work makes me panic. (But apparently panic disorder doesn't get to be it's own condition, that's under bipolar... *sigh*)

I'm so frustrated. Our family is at the point where I'm going to have to quit school and try and work again to survive financially, but then I'll lose both voc rehab AND any chance at IU and I'll probably just go crazy again. B) I have no clue what to do, how to fight, if I have any chance at winning, and even what tactics to try to win against them. I'm so frustrated... I want to cry.
