I am confuse….
Me: Hey Sir,I just wanted make sure the claim that we just recently submitted is secondary to my service connected disabilities. I was never seen in the military for depression or anxiety. Can we please make a note that my depression and anxiety is secondary.
VSO Response: Mr. ReedI have reviewed your currently rated disabilities and you can’t submit thecontentions as secondary to one of your currently rated disabilities for thefollowing reason:- Your currently rated disabilities are all joints or hands and your claimis for mental issues- You have to provide medical evidence showing the contentions on your claimare secondary to a currently diagnosed disability.
My PSYD letter in support of my claim is attached. She also state most statements in her DBQ that she did for me.
