Frequently Asked Questions about US Army PTSD denials:
How long do I have to appeal? Veterans that received US Army PTSD denials have the option to file a PTSD VA disability benefits appeal for one year after the VA made its decision. If you have waited too long you can reapply and start the process over.
Why did the VA deny my claim? The Veterans Administration denies claims for many reasons. One of the most common reasons is that the veteran did not submit enough evidence.
How do I get the right evidence to win an appeal? Our lawyers generally start by combing through your medical records. Then we work with doctors, psychologists, and vocational experts to write reports about your PTSD and how it is service-connected.
Will I need a lawyer to appeal my denial? We highly suggest you work with an experienced attorney. Many free VSO’s simply don’t have the resources and staff needed to adequately submit an appeal. If you have a simple case, a free VSO may be enough. But if you have a more complicated claim, like Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefits or PTSD benefits, we recommend working with an attorney.
Can I get Individual Unemployability for PTSD? Veterans who cannot work because of their PTSD may be eligible. PTSD Individual Unemployability benefits pay the same as a 100 percent VA Disability rating. However, your rating does not have to equal 100% to receive Individual Unemployability benefits. If you can’t work from PTSD and related conditions, gives us a call.
Is it easy to get a 100% P&T PTSD rating? No. The VA does not like to give out 100% Permanent and Total PTSD ratings because many veterans show improvement with treatment. To obtain a 100% P&T PTSD rating, your condition will have to be extremely severe.
There is a link between PTSD and other service-connected injuries.
Depression: PTSD can be linked to make other mental and physical conditions. For example, PTSD and depression are directly linked. If your PTSD is considered service-connected, your depression should be considered a secondary service-connected impairment.
Bipolar Disorder: Many veterans with PTSD also suffer from anxiety and bipolar disorder. There is VA benefits help for bipolar disorder and anxiety if they are secondary to your PTSD.
Sleep Apnea: There is a link between PTSD and Sleep Apnea. Veterans may be able to service-connect both conditions for various reasons. If you want to learn how to service-connect PTSD and Sleep Apnea, talk to our law firm. We can find out if they are related and therefore service-connected.
Hearing Problems: Studies are now showing that veterans with hearing loss or tinnitus may also suffer from PTSD. We have seen many veterans suffer from both conditions, but until recently there wasn’t a clear link.
Anger: You probably already know this, but PTSD and anger are directly related. Anger from PTSD can completely change a veteran’s life. Many veterans are unable to work because of their anger problems from PTSD.
