When did you make your PTSD claim?  That is probably when you will get your benefit date.  However, if the VA knew you had PTSD and did not assist you in getting your claim they have that duty.  I don't know if it applies in this example, but I would try and get it.  I had Agent Orange Registry exam in 2000 and doctor said I had three AO conditions.  It meant nothing until I filed claims.  I got no retro back to 2000 date.

When did the VA grant the 50% for a different MH disability?

I AM OIFAND OEF VETERAN, I GOT OUT THE SERVICE IN 2005, I WENT TO THE VA FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2006, MY PRIMARY DOCTOR DIAGNOSED ME WITH PTSD BACK IN 2006 " 

What did you do then,..... did you formally file for PTSD?

Did they deny the claim?

If so can you scan and attach here (Cover C file #, name prior to scanning it) the denial due to the 2006 claim?

The Reason and bases part and also the evidence list.

I suggest you remove or try to delete all of the personal identifying info in the pfd.

Please do same for the 2007 decisions if you can attach it here:

" I AM OIFAND OEF VETERAN, I GOT OUT THE SERVICE IN 2005, I WENT TO THE VA FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 2006, MY PRIMARY DOCTOR DIAGNOSED ME WITH PTSD BACK IN 2006 " 

 

It is the 2007 VA decision that we need to see ( cover any Personal identifying info prior to scanning it.)

    • 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.
