    Army BCMR Denial

    Can I file a new claim to the BCMR? Or is it more appropriate to file an appeal with the courts? Thanks in advance for your assistance. I am hoping to get steered in the right direction. Sam

    Jason, Thanks for looking over the documents. I'm going to attempt to appeal my denial with the ABCMR. If that fails, then I might pursue the case thru the Courts. I'll keep you posted. I am waiting on my IRIS request to the VA for some clarification.

    Question about ratings and IU

    My inclinination is that it will not suffice because you have not met the 40% for one condtion. However, if you can paint the picture that your condition makes it unfeasible to work, then I would apply. I'd apply anyways. If you were to file a NOD before one year has elapsed, the VA will...

    Army BCMR Denial, WTF Over!

    ScoutCC and Jason Perry: Thanks for the input. I am going to do a Hailmary Reconsideration. It is too costly for me to hire an attorney given the cost benefit analysis. If my application is granted, I will be netting around 100 dollars a month. I am still in disbelief that my application...

    Army BCMR Denial, WTF Over!

    Doesn't the reconsideration have to be new evidence or an argument was not considered by the Board? I am very much leaning towards filing for a reconsideration. I am still perplexed as to why this application was Denied. Thanks again for your input.

    PDBR Questions and VA

    Greetings. Did you request to have the PTSD added thru the PDBR? Also, do you have representation assisting you with this claim? Not advocating for one over the other but I would reach out to a VSO. I received great assistance from the WWP's VSO's. Take care and good luck to you.

    Disappointed and Advice Needed, feeling crappy.

    Greetings. Not exactly sure what a Pre-Narsum is. Have you already listed your conditions on the VA Form? Have you had your C&P Exams? The key thing to do now is to start documenting all of your conditions now and try to get treatment for them as well. The Pre-Narsum doctor is not your...

    TDRL lowered PDRL, considering FPEB need advice

    Not really sure about the process for TDRL but when I went thru the IDES process, I was afforded a One Time VA Reconsideration of my Unfitting Conditions. Jason or Mr. Parker can chime in on whether your TDRL being converted to PDRL affords you the opportunity for the VA Reconsideration. If...

    PDBR retroactive payment to the time of separation?

    Just a quick chime in: Since you mention you are collecting SSDI. In order to keep / get your Tricare benefits you must purchase Medicare Part B. There is no way around that. Congrats on getting a retirement.

    Not a counselor by any stretch but here goes... Don't get blinded by your desire to get out so that you can start school. Correct me if I am wrong on this but schools are continually accepting new students each semester. No big deal if you need to wait. You would rather forgo a lifetime...

    Question on Arthritis

    I can only go by my own experience on this. I was rated individually for each claimed condition. I received 20% for Cervical DDD and also 20% for Cervical Radiculopathy for Left Upper Arm. Also, 10% for each ankle and my left wrist. I could go on and on but you get the point. None of my...
