100% disabled filed for ssdi


Question

Hi. I am 100% disabled from the Army. Non p&t, but I've been disabled for almost 8 years now. I filed for social security August 2019. I am still on the initial phase and I just had my psych eval. I tried working at the post office, but I ended up getting fired for not being able to properly deliver parcels on several occasions. I have been on and off work every other 6 months or so. I went back to school, but failed my classes after graduating community College. I'm 29, and employed making about 700$ a month. My condition is psychosis schizophreniform 100%, and ptsd. 

Do I have a chance?

Beavercat I'm not sure what your question is: Do I have a chance? Have a chance at getting SSDI? Getting P&T?

Get into VA Voc Rehab,,,they will evaluate you and see if there is is any type work you can do ? including sedentary work , if they can't find you anything  usually the counselor will write a letter  declaring you unfeasible to re train at this time due to your S.C. Disability  after you get the letter   apply for the TDIU , IF OR WHEN YOUR APPROVED   YOU CAN TAKE YOUR AWARD LETTER TO THE SSA Office  and apply for your SSDI.

Remember Applying for IU is basically applying for increase     hence the P&T STATUS,

OR BEING YOUR 100% AND HAVE BEEN FOR 8 YEARS AND YOUR CONDITION HAS STAYED THE SAME   THEN APPLY FOR THE P & T Status.

OR SIMPLY TAKE YOUR 100% AWARD LETTER TO THE SSA Office and apply for the SSDI. (JMO)

Unlike VA, SSDI is for individuals that cannot work. It is possible that SSA may grant your claim, but it may happen that they may deny your claim since you are currently working. The SSA may grant your claim based on your low income but this is all pure speculation (guessing). The VA for some strange reason thinks PTSD and some mental health patients can be cured but, in all actuality, you may suffer from some form of depression for the rest of your life. Have you discussed your work ability with your mental health doctor? If he/she agrees that you should not work, then try to have him/her write it in your treatment notes. As stated, before the thing that may cause a glitch is the fact that you are currently working. When you failed your classes, were you in the Voc Rehab Program and did they give you a feasibility letter that you are not likely to be able to be trained or return to go back to work. What is your service connected ratings?

    • I already get compensation for bladder cancer for Camp Lejeune Water issue, now that it is added to Agent Orange does it mean that the VA should pay me the difference between Camp Lejeune and 1992 when I retired from the Marine Corps or do I have to re-apply for it for Agent Orange, or will the VA look at at current cases already receiving bladder cancer compensation. I’m considered 100% Disabled Permanently

      The 5, 10, 20 year rules...



      Five Year Rule) If you have had the same rating for five or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless your condition has improved on a sustained basis. All the medical evidence, not just the reexamination report, must support the conclusion that your improvement is more than temporary.



      Ten Year Rule) The 10 year rule is after 10 years, the service connection is protected from being dropped.



      Twenty Year Rule) If your disability has been continuously rated at or above a certain rating level for 20 or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless it finds the rating was based on fraud. This is a very high standard and it's unlikely the rating would get reduced.



      If you are 100% for 20 years (Either 100% schedular or 100% TDIU - Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability or IU), you are automatically Permanent & Total (P&T). And, that after 20 years the total disability (100% or IU) is protected from reduction for the remainder of the person's life. "M-21-1-IX.ii.2.1.j. When a P&T Disability Exists"



      At 55, P&T (Permanent & Total) or a few other reasons the VBA will not initiate a review. Here is the graphic below for that. However if the Veteran files a new compensation claim or files for an increase, then it is YOU that initiated to possible review.



      NOTE: Until a percentage is in place for 10 years, the service connection can be removed. After that, the service connection is protected.



      ------



      Example for 2020 using the same disability rating



      1998 - Initially Service Connected @ 10%



      RESULT: Service Connection Protected in 2008



      RESULT: 10% Protected from reduction in 2018 (20 years)



      2020 - Service Connection Increased @ 30%



      RESULT: 30% is Protected from reduction in 2040 (20 years)

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • 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,
