    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Will the va deny my claim because i have no service treatment records? I wasnt treated inservice for my schizophrenia and ptsd.  The treatment didnt come until after service and i already sent them those records.

I suggest you try harder to get your STR's.   What have you done so far to obtain them?  VA will help you obtain them, and, sometimes they succeed.

Ive done nothing to obtain them.  Its just that i didnt have inservice treatment or anything related to my disability inservice so theres nothing on there about them.  Will they still matter?

So a little more background.  did you serve in combat?  Is your ptsd related to the war/s?  Are you rated for anything?

Broncovet is correct you need to get your treatment records, as you would be surprised what was put in there.  There could be an opinion given from a doctor or someone that saw you (this is their job).  To start this fight you need to have those records or you are fighting blindfolded with both hands tied behind your back.

I did not serve in combat and my ptsd isnt related to a war.  Its related to something that happened in training.  Im currently not rated fot anything.  I just need to know will not having my records affect my chances of getting approved and is there anything else i can give them to make up for my records, because i dont know how to obtain my records.

You will need your military records  if you had an event in service that was the cause or related to your PTSD  , Also you need a diagnose for PTSD from the VA. the  Diagnosis needs to come from a VA MH Doc

You can use Buddy letters that was there with you that witness the event  date and location and the event its self.

and the caluza triangle ,  three things needed. for service connection.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
