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.)

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
