  • 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.

70% PTSD/MDD-Denied TDIU Reasons and Bases listed

Question

My denial of my TDIU was given but they did not mention MD Valette IMO as the reason for denial or reason for approval even though he evaluates me over the phone and reviewed my records. MD El Khatib notes and records were part of denial evidence, VA came up with the assumption he did not do in person but I was in his office on several occasions and he even gave me medication. This inconsistency should not have been a reason for denial.image.thumb.jpeg.a831c523a570f9a06d03c96c765f27ec-denial.jpeg.8a62bdc69672d859a1934c97d6e871c3.jpeg

The VA sometimes can be sticklers about things like this. They might want you to have had the final evaluation in-person, not just a potentially prior appointment.

Keep in mind it might be worth it to get a letter from Dr El-Khatib stating you were seen in the office and his recommendation still stands. Submit the letter as a reconsideration and hopefully you might hear back soon. If you don't hear back within the 1 year appeal timer, convert it to a regular Notice Of Disagreement so you don't lose your effective date.

I just checked on my DRO appeal, they are running 365 days behind I was told by the phone person.  Sounds like that is really convenient for the VA.

This is wonderful.  I cannot say how long until the monies are paid, they are running behind granting BVA decisions.  It might be a little while depending on how much money is to be back payed.  You should see the monthly amount go up most likely next month or the month after.
