    • $36,000 tax-free net is fairly close to $55,000 taxed gross at a day job. To pocket $36,000, you'd have to work at a $55,000 job and have a total withholding of about 34%. Add up health insurance, a 401k contribution, and taxes depending on the state and locality...you might just be in the neighborhood.  And to keep the post on topic, a development letter could be an advisory "we're still working on your claim" letter or it could be one that matters...the difference is the "IMPORTANT - reply needed" header near the top. Those are usually due process letters that propose an action and give you 60 days to react.  -CHD505
    • If the debt letter was VA's error, the Vet would not pay it back. I only laid out the causes for debt letters more than anything for memory jog reasons - people are human, people make mistakes, and things can get missed. People have gotten debt letters and had no idea why, until they talk to Debt Management and are told that they were doing something wrong for some length of time that they had no idea was wrong.  If I misread you, my fault as well. New guy, don't really know the culture here.  -CHD505
    • Don't give up. you can't trully rely on what ebenefits says, that is mostly computer generated lingo  so -to-speak  it bides the VA time. you could be supprised. on one of my claims  it had gathering of evidence and then said pre for decision then back to gathering evidence and a long estimated date... Then the Next day I got a letter in the mail from my VSO letting me know they decided my claim and should be getting a packet in the mail within a week....I did So we can't trully trust what is on Ebenfits. I think they don't even know what the hell there doing. Just stay on top of your claim and call the 1-800 # from time to time ask about the status of your on going claim.  
    • After a Denial and the veteran Appeals NOD ...Did you request a DRO Hearing/Review/ or any other Review to help get a favorable decision?  if not then that's probably why its going to the BVA.  Can you post your denial on here the reasons and bases part? Yes they sure can reduce  you based off the Original C&P, They should send you a SOC( statement of the case) or supplemental SOC ? did they?  if you don't have a Docket # yet  you maybe in for years years wait. You should go seek a private specialist for IMO to have as new & material evidence to rebut your Original C&P Examiner, be sure you find a Dr with the correct credentials (specialist in the field of medicine your claiming) If you never recieved anything back from the VA After you were DENIED & you sent in your NOD Within a year then the VA has committed a CUE  (Clear and Unmistakable Error.) This is just my thinking  seems to me they violated your( DUE PROCESS)  under the Cushman Preposition. seems your a constitutional right has been broken. other elder members I hope will chime in here! ...................Buck
    • 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.

      Is this whole " straight to the board of Veteran Appeals" right from the initial C/P disagreement a normal thing?   Thanks for any insight.

How Much Longer After My C&p Exam?

10 posts in this topic

How long after my C&P exam (June 6,7) will I have to wait longer to be rated and compensated? The exams are for my remands, not my granted claim, which was granted on Feb 8, 2011. Thanks

I have been told about 60-180 days. I have read different post. Some get in a month and others have been waiting longer then 180days. Bottom line who knows, but your close to the finish line! I just had my c&p may 9th. I am obviously still waiting. We are almost there! Hope your c&p goes well and you get it rated sooner rather then later.

My C&P was in Nov 2010, went to rating board Dec 2010, still waiting 31 May 2011. Hope to hear something by 2012!

It depends on how busy the RO is, and as for a rating & compensation, it will depend on what the C&P shows and how the rater interprets it. Since they're remands, the RO will make a decision, which you'll get a copy of and then it'll go back to the BVA and they'll get to it when they get to it, altho it's supposed to be expedited. Not to dampen your party but it could take 3-5 yrs, or even more. Best view would be 6-9 months, after the C&P exam, but I think that's highly unlikely. jmo

I have had three C&Ps since Oct 2010. One a General physical and a re-evaluation of PTSD in Oct 2010. In late March or early April 2011, I had another C&P for Parkinson's. I check ebenefits once a week, and it has always been the same "developmental". It is very frustrating sometimes, but then I'm very thankful that I do have the love and support of my family. I honestly do not understand how some Veterans hold on waiting for the VA to settle their claims. I pray each night for them.

Yes, I can understand the remands taking 3 to 10 months or longer, hopefully not that long cross my fingers. But, I have been granted a claim that I have been fighting for, for 8 years now. I think it borders on criminality to have to wait until my remands are complete, which can take years to complete. This is what pisses me off the most. It really does to my core.
