The VA, Veterans Disability and what is needed to get a PTSD Disability Rating for VA Disability and TDIU:
In the past, the VA has maintained strict requirements for claiming PTSD disability but in recent years these have become less stringent. Since 2010, veterans are no longer required to prove that the PTSD-triggering event actually occurred. This applies to combat veterans and any veteran who experienced fear of hostile terrorist activity.
The way to create A DIRECT SERVICE CONNECTION FOR PTSD, VETERANS MUST HAVE:
- A current PTSD diagnosis
- A statement about the event that caused their trauma
- Consistency between the veteran’s statement and the conditions of their service
- A medical opinion that the stressor had a sufficient enough impact on them to cause PTSD
We use Advance Forensic Mental Health Evaluations to give objective evidence of your PTSD and other Mental Health issues and are able to relate these issues and limitations in Vocational Terms. This is something other professionals can Doctors cannot do, and what the VA ALJ’s are trying to do in a vacuum unless you have a Vocational Expert outlining the issues in Vocational Terms.
you can also get PTSD from MST see: MILITARY SEXUAL TRAUMA (MST) AND PTSD
If you have a PTSD Rating and you are having problems Obtaining or Maintaining Employment due to your Service Connected Disabilities and the VA is not increasing your disability rating you should consider a TDIU Vocational Evaluation
We can provide PTSD evaluations, TDIU Evaluations, and Veteran Disability Evaluations nationally.
Social & Industrial Survey is one of the structured interview styles the VA wants to have done.
