  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

IU

Question

I am at 70% and have depression as one of my claims. I wanted to file for IU due to not able to hold employment due to depression as well as IBS. Do I do this on E Benefits?

yes you can file  via e benefits

Be sure to file it as a ITF (Intent to file) claim and if you have all your medical evidence and  can prove your service connection and any other favorable evidence=  file the claim as FDC (FULLY DEVELOPED CLAIM)

your choice!

  I prefer to file on e benefits  it's a lot faster, just make sure your VSO submits all your evidence and keep copy's of everything he/she sends. 

Also be good to file the INT (INTENT TO FILE)

Keep in Close Contact with your VSO.

Buck true I might just do it myself on ebenefits. Many say to first file for SSI through state then do IU so there are many routes I am just trying to choose the best route. I do think it is faster through E-Benifits

Buck's on the money, start the IU Claim TODAY on your E-Ben site, to establish a FILE DATE. If you're in doubt as to Evidence for an FDC Filing, just hold off on hitting the Submit Button. You have 12 months to hit the BUTTON.

Strike the ABOVE about starting the IU Claim Today, instead Apply for VA Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling on your E-Ben Today and hit the SUBMIT Button. You should get an appointment in about 3 weeks.

If you are truly Individually Unemployable due solely to your SC Conditions, a VRC's Denial of VR Services letter would Seal the Deal on an IU Award.

After Filing the Voc Rehab Claim, you can go back in to your E-Ben Tuesday and start the IU Secondary to your MH SC. Just don't hit the Submit Button yet. Your IU Retro File date will be locked in.
