Started conversation: 12 hours ago    (in my profile)-you need more eyes on this in the main forum here.

You said “Why wouldn’t they close out the PTSD / Sinitus? Below is my full claim package. I’m a Purple Heart recipient with over a dozen combat deployments.  Looking for guidance as QTC – THE VA – have no answers to when my claim with be completed.”

If you already got a C & P exam for the PTSD, and if it is favorable, that, with the Purple Heart should be a no-brainer, for the VA to be awarded but I feel you should have claimed it as PTSD with n other MH disabilities listed.

A deferred situation means they have a lot more work to do on the claim. You listed so many disabilities, that obviously that all will take time.

None of us ever have any good idea of when a claim will be completed.

Meantime, I suggest you go over the forums here and you might be eligible, when they finish the claim, for CRDP/or CRSC- in addition to your Military retiree payments. CRDP and CRSC are searchable here.

Are all of these disabilities listed on your discharge certificate?

Do you have a confirmed diagnosis yet for any of them, in addition to the tinnitus?

I have dealt with the Buffalo VARO for over 20 years- some of the conditions are not clearly defined in medical terms that VA can comprehend.

Do you have a vet rep representing you?

I see you are living in NY and I just retired from 20 years of service in the USN and moved back to Buffalo.  Because of COVID i have only had 3 appointments through QTC which were Mental Health (Video Interview), Sinituis, and Hearing. 

I submitted in May and today in the Mail received 10% for tinnitius and the rest of my claim was deferred.
