Veterans check in here
« on: July 10, 2012, 05:59:11 pm »
Welcome!  This is the place to introduce ourselves to fellow veterans.

I served in the U.S. Army.  Airborne!  :Angel4: 

As most of us were, I was trained to suck it up, and not complain - but fighting the Social Security Administration really makes it hard not to complain.  I am 100% service-connected by the VA, but SSA has its own rules.  The battle rages on...

 I served 3 years with the Army and 17 years with the Navy. I am 0 % rating with Va but I have a claim pending.
I have been waiting for about a year how. The VA moves slowly on claims.  :Main09:

The hard part is getting the service-connection.  If you have the evidence after that for a higher rating, then it is easier to get it raised.  Note:  I didn't say faster...

I went from 10% to 100% over a ten year period.  I have been in the SSA process for 4 1/2 years now.
