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.

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • 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.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear
