    • Thanks everyone! i received the BBE today, In my case, the BWE......all it states is my current 30% rating and that they need the DBQ for bladder and they are ready to make the award decision.  it just says deferred on PTSD/MST and bladder until C&P exam for bladder is complete.  i received the retro pay in the bank today.  All i can do is wait now.  I want to also ask the question about grinding of teeth that has been caused by PTSD and stress. I want to also claim that. What do i do for that? i have a private dentist that confirmed that.  i guess they will want a claim for that, but i am not doing a damn thing until all this PTSD stuff is done.  Also, they said in the BWE that they considered all evidence pertaining to the MST (buddy letters, service records, medical records and all. the list was 2 pages long of stuff they are considering}...i wanted to ask if i should go to my private urologist that wrote the letter for my SSDI if she would write a letter confirming that my PTSD has made the bladder condition 100 times worse. if she writes that letter, will that be something i should bring to the C&P exam? i already have two letters from her, but they don't mention PTSD.... what does everyone think? @Gastone @Buck52 @Berta i truly value all your opinions and sorry if i have been jumpy! i need help with this whole process.  Love to you all, Floridanurse
    • this wasn't a cue claim right  as some say they won lately just show evidence in the decision where VA say a CUE was committed  and its in all CUE claims decisions  I'VE seen which ant many this topic was for CUE claims correct this is not one. A lot of people win cues but cant post a decision where VA say IT was a CUE in the decision and to me its either lying or you just forgot like this vet lie for a purple heart and benefits you just don't know everybody who to trust. People will lie and so can I but what can I win with a lie paper work proves everything. jmho
    • SSD will often send a person for what they call a Second Opinion exam and what we call a C&P exam.  They are just as tricky as the VA.  The key phrase in a SSD claim  is "  claimant is totally disabled from all work for at least one year".    SSD only cares that you can't do any work and that you have enough quarters paying SSA to meet the requirements.    They are not concerned with service connection vs non service connection like the VA.  It is routine to have to hire a lawyer to win your SSD claim.  Some of us get lucky and get it the first time around but are in a minority.  If you can win a SSD claim based entirely on your military service then you should be able to get at least TDIU from the VA.
    • So, I woke up to encouraging news from e-benefits. It still says gathering dust, but it's asking for  two things from me: One is to update my Finacial institution immediately. We can only pay EFT or pre-paid Credit Card. The second was to update some form that deals with my dependants.  It looks like something is happening. I will post redacted copies when I get to my desktop later today. I also owe a copy of my Dr's nexus letter. I hope some of this helps other legitimate claim veterans.

Update Re: Toxic Lejeune Water

1 post in this topic

In part:

"Officials with the Department of Veterans Affairs told members of a community assistance panel addressing issues surrounding historical water contamination at Camp Lejeune that related disability claims would soon be processed at a central location.

Brad Flohr, with the Veterans Benefits Administration Compensation and Pension Service Department, told the group on Thursday that all the Lejeune water claims would be sent to the VA center in Louisville, Ky., as a way to track the cases and keep the procedure for handling them consistent."

"Lejeune veterans and former residents who lived aboard the base between the 1950s and 1980s and attribute ailments like male breast cancer and non-Hodgkins lymphoma to chemical contaminants in the water have advocated for a VA presumptive policy on water cases, similar to that governing exposure to the Vietnam-era chemical Agent Orange."
