Disabled Vet

After getting out of the service this Vet had severe behavioral probelms which he refused to acknowledge and even after being referred to a shrink at the VA, he said he was fine.  That record came back to haunt him when he filed for disabilty benefits years later and was denied.  Social Security agreed that the Vet was disabled as of 2007 but he had to prove disability prior to his last date insured which was 12/31/04.  Unfortunately the record from the VA shrink was the only evidence in the file  during that time frame.  We were able to get a strong report from the current treater which said the Vet had PTSD which  had existed for years and that the earlier report was incorrect because the Vet was in denial at the time.  We took that report and sent it to the original shrink who then agreed that his earlier opinion was mistaken.   Ultimate outcome: a favorable decsion.
