A New Comp Claim should have no effect as to a  BVA Hold-up. What is the Denied Issue?

You've never filed for PTSD, why? Evidence of in-service incident?

VA in denial admitted that in-service incident happens but denied for PTSD and depression, at the hearing the judge just said she would look at all mental issues and consider acquired mental consideration for all. I now want to file for my injury to my Achilles tear and I have no surgery but my foot and ankle is totally different from left ankle with the stiffness and hip.How I file, related to my nightmares which I have continuing to this day.

Let me help you decide whether to file "now" or "wait for the BVA decision":

1.  It depends on whether you need money or not.  If you have all the money you will ever need, then wait.  

2.  However, if you need money, file right away.  

3.  You can calculate how much it will cost you to wait.  Lets say you think you will get 50 percent for PTSD.   Each month you delay filing will cost you about 978 if you have a spouse and child.  Less if you are single.  

4.  So, ask yourself, "how much can you afford to lose by delaying filing"?  

5.  For me, the answer is "zero", I cant afford to lose anything by delaying filing, so I would file now.  

But, lets say you can afford to lose 20,000 dollars.  Then, just delay about 20 months, and "poof" you lost your 20,000 dollars and you did not even need to go to a casino!  

How do I know this?  Because I made the stupid mistake of delaying filing for about 5 years.  If I had not done that, maybe I would not have lost my home to foreclosure.

    • 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.
