  • 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.

I don't know about this type of claim. Always be cautious with anyone requesting money to help you with your claim. There are service organizations that do it for free, not everyone has a good experience with service officers but you should be aware of the help that is out there. This lifestyle impacts claim just sounds a bit odd to me, but perhaps others can chime in.

The LIC is defined and explained here:

In short, if you have a disability rating, even zero percent, and you feel you have secondary conditions, "which impact your lifestyle", then file for a secondary claim.

I completed a lifestyle impact claim w/ the help of a company in 2017. It resulted in a 70% rating. The company did not charge any upfront fees. They only got paid if I received an increase. But as Tbird said, you can get a ton of free help w/ VSOs

Lifestyle impact claim.. I have never heard of such a claim, but after reading the information Broncovet posted, I wonder if we all wouldn't qualify for such an award. Especially, after the court has ruled Pain is a disability!
