    • Roger That Gastone Will do ASAP. Thanks
    • Load, your at 90%, is your Direct Deposit account set up to Txt/Email you in real-time, regarding all Financial Transactions? Prior to 01/03/2016, I would have agreed with Buck, regarding E-Ben being less than accurate as to Future Completion Dates. I've had (2) Awards in 16, E-Ben posted updates at Least (2) weeks before the Retro Hit. In years past, Retro Hit about a min of 3 weeks before your Decision Letter Arrived, sometime after that, E-Ben was updated to reflect your New Award Info. It definitely appears to me, somebody at E-Ben finally got their Sierra, Hotel, India, Tango together. Semper Fi
    • Thank you for responding.

      All of the original claims were denied of “The evidence does not show a current diagnosed disability” with the exception of the chronic sinusitis, which stated there was no event in service. He claimed no problems even though over 100 pages of civilian medical records for treatments showed otherwise.

      In May of 2012 I sent back the following letter:
        Notice of Disagreement (NOD)
      Dear Sir/Madame: I am in receipt of your letter of 11 April 2012. In that letter you have denied my application for a disability
      rating I claimed 16 AUG 2011.

      Please accept this letter as my Notice of Disagreement (NOD) with your decision.

      My reason for this NOD is an incomplete CP exam was performed along with the examiner not reviewing multiple current civilian medical records and diagnoses.

      I request a Decision Review Officer Process (DRO) appeal and I request a personal hearing.

      I never did get a personal hearing but it turns out they did send a packet in Dec 2012/Jan2013.  I did not remember this until I went through my files. Sorry about that  - I really didn't think I had received back anything.  Dangit - It really gets frustrating when you can't recall a lot of things.  This head injury really screwed up my life!

      It turns out they did send me a request additional data and I sent in a Statement in Support of Claim.  I also did find a copy of the VA Form 9 requesting a hearing but it was only to appeal two of the original issues, and out of that the TBI was eventually rated. 

      I don't recall getting a docket number.

      SO - false alarm.  Again, my apologies for not recalling any of this.  The only thing I need to worry about is having my existing ratings reversed, which I hope is safe because of all the documentation, including VA doctor letters.  If anything, the TBI residue is more severe than what they rated and only gets worse every year.
         
    • Just did a quick read, did you say anything about your Direct Deposit Account getting Retro Deposit yet? 01/03/16, went on my E-Ben site for my yearly 100% IU T & P Confirmation Letter, to file for the yrly MI DAV Property Tax Exemption. Much to my surprise, the Confirmation page now showed I was 100% Scheduler T & P and receiving $354?.00 per mos instead of the $31??.00 that was actually deposited 01/01/16. The Retro from the 12/15/15 Quality Control Award, hit my bank account about 2 weeks later. If E-Ben now shows your at 100%, don't sweat the Development Letter Deal, just be sure your Direct Deposit Account is set to Txt/Email you in real-time regarding all Financial Transactions. Swmper Fi
    • Buck, Pun intended, Quit Dicking around. Send the Secure Msgs requesting the ED DBQ to your PCP, Urologist and MH Clinician. Remember to give a Reader's Digest version of your ED Symptom Timeline. You Officially file a request for their assistance on your MHV Secure Msg, the Request is Noted in your VMC Med Record within a couple days, as is their response to your Msg. After you get the response, attach a copy to your ED FDC and hit the Submit Button. With your ED Issues discussion being in your respective VMC Clinician's Treatment Notes &/or the DBQs, an ED C & P should be unnecessary. The SMC K Award would be added to your 100% Comp + SMC S (1) for a total of about $3545.00 per mos (Vet w/Wife). Semper Fi

70/iu & 100 Difference?

21 posts in this topic

Is it worth the effort filing an appeal from 70/IU asking for 100 P&t?

Also, my award says 70/IU p & t. I didn`t even know a 70 iu p&t existed.

Caveman,

This came up on my claim many years ago. It is my recollection that if you can get 100% schedular that this is the best way to go. However, if the 100 was to be based on an extra-schedular rating then it is the same process as 70% + IU. They just do the IU rating if you have not worked in a long time. I got the P&T also. When I was rated I had not worked in over ten years and told the DRO their was no way that I would return to work.

It is my understanding that if you are 100% schedular for a medical condition that you can have earnings from employment without risking a reduction in you rating. If you were 100% schedular for a psychiatric condition that was based on employment functioning, returning to work could reduce your rating. Hopefully, other folks have the M-21citings on this readily available.

It really depends in the situation. But in most cases you will not get to 100% schedular. I guess the question I have for you is what is the addition disability that you have that makes you think you can get to 100% schedular.

Normally unless you have a life threating condition, or loss of use of limbs, it is almost impossible to get to 100%.

Remember too that 100% and tdiu pay the same thing.

I`ve read many BVA cases where vets have been moved from 70 to 100. They all do not have an IU rating though. I guess there really is no advantage to being 100 p & t to being 70 w/IU p & t. They both have the same benefits. My main concern was getting school help for my daughter which because of illness I would not be able to afford. Now I can, so I am a happy man. I have decided to leave well enough alone.

It is worth filing an appeal to get the P&T. That is what I did and got P&T one year later. Now my wife has ChampVA. For shcool it would be good and if you appeal and win the P&T status goes back to your initial IU claim date. I was 70% IU and appealed for P&T. Now 5 years later I am up to 80% but never will get 100% because of the reasons Rick expressed. It is only for SMC housebound or A&A that 100% schedular might be useful. I think if you go at it from the back door by being approved for HB they might bump you up to 100% to justify giving you HB. A friend of mine did that.

When I got bumped up to 70% with TDIU, for PTSD, I got my P&T at the same time, so it does happen on occasion, then about a year later I put in a claim for panic attacks with Agoraphobia , I had a C&P exam, without the VA telling me I was getting a C&P, so was approved for that, then they bumped me up 100% scheduler for PTSD. I guess it all depend on how bad the VA feels your disability is, in getting the right percentage.
