@  Asiadaug : (16 November 2014 - 02:07 AM) Thanks. I Have Seen The Fast Ltr 10-35 And Have Seen Cases Where The Va Has Apparently Agreed That Tinnitus Can Have Delayed Onset. I Did Not In Looking Over The Fast Ltr See Where They Had Ruled 10-028 Into That. And, I Am Not Sure In The Vas Issuance Of ‘policy’ Type Letters How They Might Roll In Previous Instructions Into Newer Ones. Maybe There Is Some Intranet Traceability Capability? I Was Just Curious As There ‘appeared’ To Be Conspicuous Absence Of That 10-028. I Am Assuming 10-028 Was Written In 2010. But It May Be I Should Not Assume Anything.

Hello my Hadit.com Friends, Is it a lot easily to get benefits from SSA if you are a Disable Veteran rated 100%? I need help. Good Luck with your claims

Our experience was that it was (100% schedular rated, not TDIU), however, just to tip the odds a bit more in our favor, we hired Binder and Binder to represent my husband. Applied in September 2007, got the award letter in March 2008 that benefits would begin in April 2008. Much of the information Binder requested was of its own making, their own forms, questionnaires, etc., for both my husband and his doctors, so we essentially answered a lot of questions before the SSA asked them. Also, we sent in copies of C & P exams from the VA, as well as documentation that my husband was rated 100% disabled.

So, although there are no guarantees, I would make sure the SSA was aware of your VA status, and vice versa (should the VA ever call you in for re-examinations).

For some getting SSD is pretty easy, and for others it is very difficult. I believe that at present their is a large backlog of SSD claims just like the VA. It is common for people to have to get lawyers for SSD. You can apply and then if you are denied then get the lawyer for the appeals. Just remember the SSA will only approve you if they believe you cannot do any kind of work for at least one year. You have to wait 6 months from the time the SSA decides you became disabled to get paid if you are approved. Then two years after that you can get medicare part A and part B.
I got SSD in about 4 months without an exam. I was lucky I think.

I would say yes. Apply, be sure to send them your VA approval showing your 100% approval....if you were granted IU; all the better. Just in my opinion, don't worry about an attorney the first go around, my SSDI was approved very quickly without any questions or even an exam but it is different for each case.

Good luck.

Purple and John are both correct, you don't need an attorney and many applicants try it alone on the first go-around. In our case, we wanted to make the first attempt as strong a shot as possible. The attorney only wins when the applicant wins, and there's a cap on the fee. In our case, we didn't have any retro due, so we paid the fee out of our pockets after all was said and done, $1,000. I looked at it as an investment that paid off.

When I was awarded 100%, I hired a lawyer and applied for ss disability,I was 60 years old. The judge was a real bad guy. The vocational specialist they had said I was not able to hold a job. The judge denied it, called me a liar, said the va was wrong awarding me the 100%. We took it all the way but with what he judge wrote, we did not have a chance. The terrible thing is that the judge or whoever had all the info place on google and all the other search engines. When someone enters my name all this comes up including the part he calls me a liar, and that I should not have been awarded the 100%. He was the one that lied, he added some things that were not true. Just a bad guy. I am now 69 and this is still on the internet, I know of no way to get it taken off. I just hope my grand kids do not see it.

So be careful, if you get the wrong judge, this could happen to you. Good Luck!!!!

Do you get SSA retirement now?

If so- this is probably the same amount the SSA for disability would have been.


There are lawyers who take on internet crap like this-

I had a problem like this myself-along with a few other people- the perpetrator was the same person- who in each case had gotten some info on us from Ancestry web site and then manipulated it into something else-unfortunately a former hadit member here got involved in this on the old board and suggested he would investigate me himself-for benefit of hadit- what a joke- I have been run thru the FBI 4 times-twice for jobs and twice for my daughters Top Secret clearance- no one needs to 'investigate' me.This was a former hadit member I had trusted to even come to my home-twice-
he never returned to hadit-when he realised he himself was a potential suspect too- but I found the actual perp before the detective did.

I hired a private detective- long story but it only took days to resolve my problem and never happened again in my case-
one of the people harmed I believe sued them in court and one of them, a Priest-didnt want to make waves-and did nothing about it.

If you are named directly in this internet stuff -it sounds like libel and slander.
Ironically after I resolved my problem months later a lawyer opened practice at
Letchworth where the beautiful state park is here in NY not far from me- and his sole focus is on internet crime.He can be googled.

Forget his name- you should not take this- the Judge should be reported to the Attorney General in your state and you should attempt to take legal action on this.

Hi Bertha, I am scared to do anything, I sure do not want to stir things up and have my 100% taken away. I have had it 9 years and 4 months. I sure do thank you for you comment's. I will be 69 soon. Could not do with out it plus I have a wife who has had 4 strokes and I need to make it i believe to 10 years so that if I pass away, she will get it.
