Congrats very happy for you. As much as I complain about VAMC and VARO they are good at paying and some of the programs they offer are big help.

Enjoy your benefits you earned them.

Congratulations!!!!!

My claim took 17 months for same result.... I kept trying to remember that even if they do screw up 30% of the time (or whatever percentage), that the rest of the time they DO get it right.

Way to go. You deserve it!!!

Got a brown envelope today. 50% for PTSD and that put me at 90%. I still have two claims pending, one for depression and one forTDIU. Thanks hadit members for all your help. I could never have got this far without it. Would a moderator change my disability rating, please. For those of you still working your claims, never give up.

Got my white envelope in the mail went from 70% to 90%. I guess when they did my C&P exam for TDIU they increased some of my other compensations.

Congrats! I'm just starting my own TDIU claim. Do you have any advice on building a winning case? I'm in the middle of filling out Form 21-8940.

 

I'm a bit concerned because, since I lost my last job in 2011, I haven't applied for another a full-time job. Just some short-term consulting gigs. Also, the full-time job I lost in 2011 was at a company I started and still own. (I had to hire a manager as my replacement)

 

The only evidence I have is a statement from my Thai doctor saying I'm not able to work due to my disabilities and the fact that I haven't had a full-time job in a few years. The statement is a strong one though. 

 

Do you mind if ask what other evidence you provided?

 

Also, did you specifically ask for or in some way claim P&T?

 

Thanks!

MarWar congrats you have earned every bit of that...

 

lostinthailand....Any letter from a doctor usually holds more weight. Make sure you send in a copy of that with your claim form 21-8940. Also you said you own a company but you had to quit working because of your disabilities? And you hire a manager to take your place? Since you are the owner of the company I don't know how the VA is going to be able to send a form to your employer to fill out because this would be a conflict of interest...They probably won't send it because I don't think they sent one to my last employer, who knows I have medically retired because of my service connected disabilities. This will be a hard case. Maybe JBasser can give you some tips on this.
