    employment 2.jpeg

    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

2nd SSOC received...

Question

I just got a 2nd SSOC for my PTSD increase...

 

The rating decision dated 9-28-16

 

Decision:

1: Increased evaluation for PTSD curretly 70% disabling is increased to 100% disabling effective 2-1-16. Increased evaluation prior to 2-1-12 is denied.

2: Entitlement to IU is denied.

 

My lawyer is taking care of this, but when should I expect my first 100% monthly check?

#800 person said it is probably going to take at least 2 months for them to finalize everything and start paying me... I really hope this person is wrong....

I got my SOC on 9/13/16 from an appeal and it said that my Cervical neck is now connected, but everything else is remanded.  Haven't gotten anything else and I check ebenefits once or twice a day to see if anything has updated, 1800 peggy has been useless to me.  I have called numerous times to try to find out what percentage I get for my Cervical, but they said they can't see until it is finished up.  It is in their computer as being finished 2/15/17.....

After they denied me my increase; Only new evidence I submitted was a form with questions answered by my ptsd doctor that my lawyer sent me. (Residual Functional Capacity Evaluation) Hygiene I think I am clean; aside from having untrimmed facial hair and my hair will get shaggy from lack of hair cuts.

Something I over looked that might be important is my PTSD isn't rated solely as PTSD. E-Ben has it as PTSD with dysthymic disorder.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
