I got my award letter today. It says nothing about why I got ssd only that I got it and how much I am getting. And I thought they tell you how often they review you case. Also thought the say why you were approved. Is this award letter? It says award notice in the top left corner. Please let me know so I can get this off to the va. And if this is the award letter how does the va know if it is for service connection. thank you

All you'll get is what you've gotten.

Send a copy of this "award letter" to the VA and sign on of those "release of information" letters giving the SSA as the entity that you want the VA to request your file from.

calnight,

Do you get social security because of a service connected injury/disease?

If you did than the ssd award might help you va case.

If not, the va will look at it but it may not help your case.

Calnight.

You can find out on what basis that Social Security awarded you by calling the 800 #. How often they review your case depends upon several factors like your age, what your disability they awarded you on, If it is medically likely to get better. If you are near actual retirement age they will not bother you. My wife is 33 and has had SSD for about 7 years. She has been reviewed in person with a doctor once and the other time she was reviewed through the mail. If you have children under age 18 then they are entitled to a percentage of your award, meaning that say you got $700 a month then they would be entitled to around $350 so the total paid to you each month would be $1050. If you have several children you only get a total of $350. Most lawyers do not tell you that you are entitled to this for the children but are able to collect their percentage when you file the paperwork. They do not tell you because it is more paperwork for them and almost everyone finds out that minor children can get money and they file the paperwork themself thus saving the lawyer time. Dale Jr 8

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • Occasionally it becomes necessary for HadIt.com to come to the community to help raise funds. This is one of those occasions.

      A couple of things to keep in mind

      Financial contributions are never required, but always appreciated.


      NOT tax deductible, HadIt.com is NOT a non profit and any contribution you make is just a gift and cannot be deducted on your taxes.


      If you prefer to give through a subscription, you may subscribe here the rates are $5 per month or $50 per year and gives you an ad free experience on the forums.



      Thank you for your support!

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
