    • I'm kind of confused and concerned about this one...

      I submitted my VA Disability claim for multiple items way back in 2011.  I got a very bad CP exam doc who denied everything despite nearly 20 years of treatment by civilian docs for some of the issues.  In 2012 I appealed with a notice of disagreement. In the meantime a doctor at the VA was willing to help with the paperwork for the TBI and filled it out which sped up that portion - I ended up getting  10% for tinnitus, 40% for the TBI residuals (memory and concentration) and 30% for migraines/headaches. 

      What is still on the original appeal is my feet/ankles & knees from an injury as well as left hand from putting a screwdriver through it.  It's been sitting in the 1st stage appeal limbo basket for nearly 5 years. Fast forward to 2016 - suddenly I find out that my original disability claim has been sent to Washington DC to the Board of Veteran Appeals.  Wow - what a shocker as I was expecting at least another exam.

      They said it will go before a judge.  What concerns me is that it's my original claim, including the TBI issues.  Will everything be reviewed and is it possible to lose what I have?  I thought it should have been only for the items still in appeal. I'm using handicapped plates because of my legs and  it is hard to concentrate and focus on things because of my head injury so this is overwhelming.  Not to mention that I'm also recovering from cancer surgery.  This is getting too much to handle.

      Is this whole " straight to the board of Veteran Appeals" right from the initial C/P disagreement a normal thing?   Thanks for any insight.  
    • Oh, okay. Either way, the VSO should be able to view the letter on Monday. Thanks.
    • Thanks I think from now I'm just going to try and forget it cause it's more stress then what I need right now.  And my VSO that started this left and the new one is clueless 
    • Did I write something that sounded harsh? If so, I didn't mean for anything to come across that way. I was just verifying the info seeing if you could figure out what it might be.
    • I have no idea what the letter is regarding and what it says.  Until then, I can't give you an answer.  I was simply making sure the other poster that stated what he stated understood that if the VA erred on a disability rating and the Veteran was getting over paid for it, the Veteran is not obligated to pay it back.

Your vet rep should be able to find out what they used the 119 for.

They didn't/ they have it listed with the evidence in the second SSOC - but they list three dates -- could this be something sent by the Senators office by fax??
