Voc Rehab Denial opinion from Counselor

Question

Hello everyone, I’ve been reading about VR and the effects it has on TDIU. Recently I applied for VR and after the class and paperwork I talked with the VRC about my SC disabilities and how they affect my ability to work. She told me that it appeared that I wouldn’t benefit from VR and that I couldn’t even attempt to start my own business with my drone and Ariel photography. I left feeling down on myself because what the heck was I going to do then! She said to contact her in a few days to talk about IL opinion. When I contacted her she said she would have to wait to get my PCP to agree with her decision! Is this normal? Is it up to my PCP to agree with her in order to receive the confirmation on not being able to find gainful employment? 

If this is the case I may be in trouble because my PCP is out of the country until the middle of July! Should I continue to bug the VR lady so she won’t forget about me?

You need to find it in your medical notes  as to what the VRC mention about you would not benefit from the VR /E Program due to your S.C. Disabilities..that will help you get the IU 

Your Quote above

''She told me that it appeared that I wouldn’t benefit from VR and that I couldn’t even attempt to start my own business with my drone and Ariel photography.'' I left feeling down ''

Its almost meaning the same thing as if they said this

''It is not feaisable to retrain this veteran at this time due to his S.C. Disabilities. ''

so use that as credible evidence in your claim for IU.

What about the VRC saying that she had to get with my PCP to sign the paperwork? Would the VRC’s notes still show up in my VA notes?

Your VRC appointment should be in your C file.  Move forward as Buck advised.

also - when ever the PCP is not available - a substitute is always assigned- to cover any patient issues.... FYI - so technically on your side you are never without a PCP - just not your PCP

L  Your right but, they rotate her replacement every 2 days. So, that means a different doctor every two days!  I tried to get one of the replacements doctors to help me with short term disability paperwork and they pitched a fit.

    • 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.
