    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Appeal the decision, and while you are waiting for that make an appointment for Voc Rehab and if you are denied into the program get a Feasibility Letter for TDIU. That letter is GOLD.

Get the IME/IMO and appeal that reduction.  If you don't fight a reduction I believe it may encourage the VA to try and reduce you again since they may see an easy target.  How did they determine that you should be reduced any way?  Get an orthopedist to do your IMO if possible.  I also have shoulder disability and it got worse when I had surgery on it.  No question that a bad shoulder injury can make it impossible to do most work.

Got my decision letter Christmas Eve.  TDUI had been rated at 70% - 2 separate conditions -  VA decision determined that my shoulder SC had improved resulting in cut to 60% …… have 60 days to appeal…..any advice?

Good point. That letter, while not medical, represents a lot of other areas of daily living that are challenging enough for you to be totally disabled on a lot of cases.

Thank you -feedback helped me a lot.  filed a timely NOD- made appt to get IME with ortho specialist. couldn't get appt before the NOD had to get in they only gave me 60 days. . VA did not send proposal to reduce so included this in NOD.  They also printed the reduction decision on back of a spouse notification (spouse notification was dated 4 days later)  will keep you posted really appreciate the feedback.

Man, they are rushing you.  I filed an NOD and they told me it will be 395 days before they can do my NOD.  Something is not right about this.

I agree with Vetquest, BUT, its the way it works.  When we ASK for benefits it takes years.  However, when VA takes them away, they do it pronto.  You know, its that Veteran friendly pro claimant system they talk about.  Yea, they talk about it then do the opposite.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
