  • 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.

[HELP] proposal to reduce + denied tdiu

Question

Posted (edited)

I do not know what more I can do. I was denied tdiu and now they want to reduce my percentage.

I am flagged by the VA as high risk, I take multiple medications (antidepressant, antipsychotic, anti-anxiety)recently my LCSW said that I could not work the  way I am now.

Do I ask her and my psychiatrist to write a letter stating this?

They do not mention my ability to work in my online health records, so I believe that may be screwing me over.

Do I ask for a hearing, or do I wait for the reexamination?

Fearless, I would hope that this letter is enough to stop your reduction.  In my opinion, in the letter they show cause for IU and at least a 70% rating.  Can you see about getting a letter from the VA voc rehab people, this would also help with IU.

@vetquest

The community told me not to worry, so I'm going to do just that🤣.

As for the voc rehab, I don't know if I want to talk to anymore people about my issues. Am I just job hunting when I sign up, or is this more counseling with a psychiatrist. 

Do you think I may be shooting myself in the foot if I don't go?

Going and getting a letter that you are not employable for Voc Rehab is a great thing to have for IU.

Am I supposed to do the whole program first, or do I bring them the letter from my psychiatrist?

You may not know the answer to this, but what happens if the letter I get from voc rehab and the letter I got from my psychiatrist have conflicting information? Which letter holds more weight?

Voc rehab will evaluate you for employment and make a decision whether you are employable or not.  I would get that doctors letter filed to the VA as soon as possible.

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
