  • 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?

GA stone I am confused as to what exactly you are saying. Im not sure exactly what to do and what stepts to follow on E-Benefits. VA Voc Rehab counseling is new to me. So far I have understood to file IU Claim on ebenefits but to not submit that just yet. I am also told to file for state SSI. Lots to think about just want to make sure I do what is the best and to do it right.

Update I have the claim in the system as of December 22 2017 as Intent to File. I have stopped at that not continuing the claim as I want to speak with my VSO first. Now what should I look to do?

i just completed Voc Rehab after 2 years graduating in a month. The problem is in this time I was terminated from employment already had and it was due to my disabilities. My MH and IBS are getting much worse and I have always had problems keeping employment due to depression so as I found out recently that I qualified to put in for IU I decided to apply for it. That is where I stand right now;

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 ITF (INTENT TO FILE)

Keep in Close Contact with your VSO.

IF YOU already been in Voc-Rehab  and they can't find you any job you can do because of your S.C. Disability the Voc Rehab counselor should have written you a letter stating its not feasible to retrain this veteran at this time due to his S.C. Disability's/Disability

That letter can be used as evidence when you actually file your FDC Claim for IU

If you graduate from Voc Rehab  after 2 years and  have a degree?  and you can use that in finding a Job then you will be denied for the IU .

but you state you can't work  so you will need a Dr to state that and why.

Remember you have a Year if you filed the ITF  Intent to File)..to gather your evidence and  any medical records & Dr 's Reports that will be favorable to your claim .

Filing the INT is not the same as actually filing for the IU it just lets the VA know you intend to file a claim for IU  And you have 12 months to do so.

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
