Your post states ..."husband had several marriages and children some of which were registered as dependents but not paid for..." therefore I wonder this? has he been paying child support for these kids? has he ever received dependent compensation $ ? I am wordering if you could just put in a claim for it .

Does he use a VSO? How many years are you looking at? Do you have any documentation that verifys the VA received the appropriate forms for dependent care compensation monetary benefits?(names/DOB/SS#) How many years are you talking?

(If I were him I would put in a claim for back pay never received for the one's registered, and put in for the one's not registered. I don't think you have anything to lose and could gain for the kids.

Also I have not heard of an audit being done for dependents, but I am sure the VA does audits for alot of things.

I filled later in life and only received dependent care for one child only a few years; she's now in Graduate school, so it's been on us.

Good luck and hopefully others versed in this area will post.

Yes for all children he has paid child support and filed taxes for them before he was made 100%.

He has 5 kids and all but one are registered with VA (or were before they turned 18). The thing is we were looking at all the ratings letters and payment notices and only 2 of the kids were payed for, the VA told us the others weren't paid for because the birth certs weren't "available" at the time of rating. We ordered my husband C-File for dependent information, and it shows birth certificates for all of his children including the one that they never added to the system and the VA date stamp says all certs were received at the same time this file also includes the form to add dependents which has all their names and the Tax statements showing he was paying for all of them. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

The VA had this information and didn't include it in rating, one of his kids was never eligible for the DEA education benefits because they didn't add him to the system, even though they had his birth certificate as evidenced by it being in his c-file. Most kids were still in elementary school when he became disabled, three of them were living with him at the time. he was payed only for two of these.

This is going back starting in 1988 when he became 100%

Especially wondering about this because the son that was not added wants to go to school but can't afford it. It would be nice if we could help him out via the DEA educations benefits he is supposed to be entitled too.

Has anyone else had this problem????

WARNING!!!!! Once you start going through your C-File you start finding all sorts of crazy stuff that needs to be corrected. Make sure you have the state of mind and time to deal with it all!!!! :)

I am not sure if an appeal would be the route or a new claim to try and go back for the funds...not being well versed in dependent claims, it is something I will try and find info about. I am going to try and find info in my VBM, but we will see. Chapter 35 I believe you are talking about for child education.

Berta is one who is versed in this area too, hopefully she will respond, or another with knowlegde in this specific subject matter. If I find anything that may be helpful, I will post.

    • If you are a Veteran, represented by MOPH, you need to know that MOPH is closing down its offices.  This can have a drastic effect on your claim, and it wont be good for you.  You likely need to get a new representative.  

      This station confirms MOPH is closing its doors:

    • Examining your service medical records...
      * First thing I do after receiving a service medical record is number each page when I get to the end I go back and add 1 of 100 and so on.

      * Second I then make a copy of my service medical records on a different color paper, yellow or buff something easy to read, but it will distinguish it from the original.

      * I then put my original away and work off the copy.

      * Now if you know the specific date it's fairly easy to find. 

      * If on the other hand you don't know specifically or you had symptoms leading up to it. Well this may take some detective work and so Watson the game is afoot.

      * Let's say it's Irritable Syndrome 

      * I would start page by page from page 1, if the first thing I run across an entry that supports my claim for IBS, I number it #1, I Bracket it in Red, and then on a separate piece of paper I start to compile my medical evidence log. So I would write Page 10 #1 and a brief summary of the evidence, do this has you go through all the your medical records and when you are finished you will have an index and easy way to find your evidence. 

      Study your diagnosis symptoms look them up. Check common medications for your IBS and look for the symptoms noted in your evidence that seem to point to IBS, if your doctor prescribes meds for IBS, but doesn't call it that make those a reference also.

    • How to get your questions answered on the forum
      Do not post your question in someone else's thread. If you are reading a topic that sounds similar to your question, start a new topic and post your question. When you add your question to a topic someone else started both your questions get lost in the thread. So best to start your own thread so you can follow your question and the other member can follow theirs.

      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.


      Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.


      Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.



      Leading to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.



      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?



      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?




      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?


      I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?





      This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

      This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67.
