You have sent several messages, but the messages are marked closed thus I can't reply to those messages. I was a chaplain for 32 years, currently semi retired. Providing mental health service for Hospice.
Just started the IDES process this week. I am a STS1 and have been referred due to the PLIF surgery I had in April fusing L4 through S1. Any information on the process or results from anyone who has had a similar surgery would be great. Had the phone brief with the lawyer and it did not give me the warm and fuzzies.
I forgot to add before I went to Number: 2. Make sure both of you pay close attention to what is being exam. In most case the physician will write in their report that they have exam a part of your body that you know he or she never exam. If this happen go home and have your wife or husband write an affidavit of all the things in that medical report that did not happen.

You can pick up the medical report in about a week after the exam. So, to the freedom of information office in the VA building and request for a copy of that report and chop it up if you can. The veterans also would need to write an affidavit of the negative report and file it with the VA office.
Today I want to help the Veterans with some information that will help you. Recently the VA is not on outside as I am sure most of you are learning this. The VA start to look for out-side physician that speak their language. Keep reading the post to the next statement.

Number: 2. I find this subject very important for a win in your case. But first keep in mind the VA may send you again back for a second C & P exam. Why because most likely the first report is in your favor, so the VA give another physician to review your case, this time with additional question that hose against your condition for the physician to answer.

Ok here is the golden rules to wining your VA claim. Be able to pay for a second opinion. Find a physician who is not only considered an expert in the field of the type of condition you have, but make sure he or she specialized in the service-connected condition that you are seeking for VA benefits. This physician report will most likely hold more weight if he or she are familiar with VA medical reports.

I will give you a hint. It’s one physician that I am aware of who helps Veterans in all type of military case and VA. He is considering an expert in medicine law and in VA case. I cannot share his name on this cite but I can give you a hint and you should be able to fine him. His office is in Oklahoma.
I had a C & P exam on Last week. The va advised I had total occupational and social impairment. Symptoms. Depressed mood,anxiety, suspiciousness, mild memory loss, diff maintaining relationships, and more. I would like your input on what you think the out come could be.
I retired 9 years ago 1 Nov 2009, at that time I was rated at 80% by the VA. I received my first VA Disability payment on Jan 2010 for the December payment. I did an appeal of my entire case in Oct 2010, was denied any action on my case. Later I received a call from the VA in the month of Oct. 2012 asking me to come in for an evaluation the very next month Nov 2012 the VA increased me up to 100%. CRSC

Hello,

You posted to your own profile and your remarks do not include a question. Do you have a CRSC question? If so, it would be best to post it in an open forum.

Regards,

Ron
I have to ask I've been out of the Army for 6 years and I'm 100% VA Disability , 3 Months ago I turned in my CRSC application after talking a few other veteran that told I need to apply . I just wanna know how long does it take for this process. I figure that the process would have gotten a little faster.

The Army's processing cycle for CRSC applications is 9-12 months currently. One must be retired from the military to be eligible for CRSC.

Sir. I filled out for the CRSC. I received a letter saying I would know something in 8 to 12 months. We mailed the paperwork off to CRSC in May 2018, and was notified they received the documents. Yet, we haven’t heard anything after that....
I’m 100% VA, & 80% Army, & I have a Purple Heart due to my TBI.
Do you know what percentage I may receive?
Thank you
Hi Jason. I went through a PEB years ago and was rated unfairly. Mike Parker tried to help me in 2013 but eventually stopped helping. He did agree with me though. Would you know anyone who would try to help me?

Thank you.
@[1:mad:Jason Perry],

Thank you for the opportunity to help make your forum more readable and effective. Any guidance you establish will be followed to the T. Mike
Indeed, I agree with this "promotion" on the PEB Forum! As such, I truly appreciate your trust in me and for the opportunity to help! You are quite welcome, and thank you too! Take care!
CRSC question, if the application is about a program for veterans, and the application clearly says no need for medical records...etc...then why is the application sent through the administrative offices of Personnel, and there is no proof that qualified people are making the right decision about your status or case...maybe a class action lawsuit or some discrimination against them, I think its time to file a lawsuit

You've posted to your own profile rather than a thread in an open forum. I'll take your info and reply there under "George Dolan--CRSC"

I am a new member so bear with me. I am a Chap 61 retiree with 13 years of service, and retired as an O-4. I retired in 1973. I didn't apply for a VA rating until 2008. I received a rating of 100% and then applied for CRSC. I received my CRSC rating letter in 2009, with 100% combat related. A month later I received a letter that my CRSC entitlement was $236 per month.
I need help so I can determine if that is low.
