    employment 2.jpeg

have you started the New Claim for "Increase" on your E-Ben site yet? June 1st is next week, don't drag your feet. Do you work with a POA-VSO? If so, have them file the New Claim.

Try to get your claim "delivered to your VARO" before June 1.  Why?  Well, assuming you eventually get the increase your effective date will be the date you applied (with some exceptions).  This means you lose a whole month's pay waiting until AFTER June 1 to apply.  That is about 3000 dollars for 100 percent Vets.  

Would you drive to your VARO for about $2000?  Remember you are service connected and the money you already get will be deducted from your retro. 

This is not the date you mail it, its the date VARO receives it.

J2, if the wheels fall off your car, the buses aren't running, Uber's shut down, you could go on your e-Ben site and file the Increase FDC today. Just logging in and beginning the CLAIM would get you in under the 06/01/2018 Filing Wire. 

If you don't have access to your E-Ben site, for whatever reason, just call your POA-VSO and request that they File for The Increase this afternoon, you don't have to be there, that's what the POA is all about.

I agree with Gastone and broncovet

Yon mention  ''Just received the medical paperwork today. Will file for an increase in the next 5 days with the VSO 

This was on the 25th...so 5 days from then will be the  30th  cutting it close

Try to do file today if you possibly can.

  file an INT (intent to file FDC) This will give you more time to gather evidence if you need it and start your EED Clock

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
