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.

    • 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.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
