What was ur timeline like ? Was it an fdc?


etac_romad

The claim that put me over the top was filed on December 7th. FDC.


Hateredditman

Filed Dec 22 as a fdc it closed on March 17th and didnโ€™t pend or anything because I looked at it that morning and later that day it was in the closed section.

I_am_ChristianDick

December 22?? Wow that are moving light speed


Hateredditman

It a lot better then it was 10 years ago my first claim took two years for 10% ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


I_am_ChristianDick

Wonder if appeals are being that wuickโ€ฆ Did you have CPs?


Hateredditman

I gave up on appeals years ago as the turn around time was so long I would have over 100 k back pay if I did but sadly to keep family afloat I aggressively filed fdcโ€™s The next day or two usually takes two days you can call e benefits and figure out which company is doing your c&p call them ahead and you will be in and out within a week.


Hot_Alternative_5157

You can request permanent and total in the appeal. Mine was upon award because my previous conditions were already 19 years in and involved removing or organs.. my secondaries that pushed me over 100% my community care provider wrote saying they would require life long management

What do you mean by apply for DEERS?


TheRettom

Probably ID cards for dependents.


Hateredditman

I think itโ€™s called champva pays for health care dental college etc. I just donโ€™t know if they can be enrolled and get is cards if Iโ€™m not permanent and total.


M_R_L_S_F_P

You need to be 100% P&T to get ChampVA. Dental isnโ€™t part of that.


I_am_ChristianDick

Yeah itโ€™s PT and itโ€™s not dental

Are the ratings for the scars or the physical damages under the scars?


Hateredditman

Scar, underlying soft tissue damage, right lower extremity/right medial thigh/groin Scar, underlying soft tissue damage, left lower extremity/left groin inguinal region Painful/unstable scars, right upper extremity, left upper extremity, right lower extremity, left lower extremity, posterior trunk


199lib68

Thanks for the update, never understood scar ratings. I have some doozy's but never had them included in ratings and I figured it was factored in with the injury that caused the scar.


Hateredditman

Yea so scar ratings are not really that high unless you file them for each side of your body like I did or you have them on your face. And no scars are completely separate then the condition the condition that my scars come from is rated 60% alone. If your still in claim process I suggest you file it if you need help send me a pm.
