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

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
