You need a DSM5 PTSD Diagnoses from a VA Phyistrist from Mental Health, Also See a lCSW & VA Phyistrist for treatment  , if you do?  go back into MyhealthyVet and copy the favorable Notes.

Only a VA DSM5 PTSD  Diagnoses will fly.

you need your stressors verified with records, MOS record helps what you did in military  where you were any combat badges you may have got  then the VA will Concede your stressor's your DD-214 should have this information.

with what you sent in this time should prompt you a C&P Exam,  hope you  got the affidavits stamped by a certified Notary?

read up on hadit information about the PTSD C&P Exams what to expect and what to say and do.

IF Your PTSD keeps you from working or starting jobs but you can't do the work b/c of your PTSD a letter from your employer will help. if you were in VA-Voc Rehab and they could not help a letter from the rehab counselor will help stating you are not feasible to retain b/c of your disability.

 However They may not give you a C&P if  this is enough evidence & information you just sent them?

  it maybe enough for them to make a favorable decision...but normally we get a C&P Exam.

if you get a C&P TAKE ANY MORE EVIDENCE YOU HAVE AND LET THE EXAMINER KNOW ABOUT ALL OF IT.  SUBMIT IT AS NEW & MATERIAL EVIDENCE if you have sleep apnea or sleep disorders b/c of your PTSD  SUBMIT THAT. ect...ect...

Qualifying for Disability Benefits Due to PTSD

Regulations passed in 2010 made it easier for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder to qualify for VA disability benefits. The following requirements must be met.

The veteran has a PTSD diagnosis.

The veteran's symptoms are related to a traumatic event (the "stressor").

A VA psychiatrist or psychologist confirms that the triggering stressor was enough to cause PTSD.

The stressor is related to fear of hostile military or terrorist activity. 

The stressor is one that is likely to have happened in the locations and circumstances of the veteran’s service (and there is no evidence to contrary). 

Because you no longer have to provide evidence that the traumatic event occurred, you will have an easier -- and faster -- time getting VA benefits. 

Getting a Disability Rating for PTSD

In assigning you a percentage of disability, the VBA will consider how severe your PTSD symptoms are, how frequently they occur, the length of your remissions (periods of improvement), and how much your ability to work and function socially is impaired. For example, a veteran with mild or passing symptoms of PTSD that are well controlled with medication might receive a 10% disability rating. For information on PTSD from the VA, visit http://www.ptsd.va.gov/.

You may also be eligible for Social Security disability benefits if you are unable to work. For more information, see our article on Social Security disability benefits for PTSD.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
