  1. Just read this yesterday. Did you know the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) officials will have to provide basic legal advice to veterans who file medical malpractice claims? Also, VA officials are mandated to provide information on local staffing issues as part of new legislation signed into law. SOURCE : VAntage point

  2. Buck I should think you could submit an IRIS request on it; it's claim related.

  3. Buck52 if you kept your decision letter it would be in there, you could call the 800 number and ask them if they have it. I no the last decision I had they gave all the % and payments from day one.

  5. Yeah, I am often discouraged when I hear 20 years into this that Vets are still being told, be happy with what you got. My VSO rep actually sent a letter into the VA stating they felt that I wasn't due an increase and the VA had rated fairly. Yeah... that was when I immediately dropped my VSO rep. I don't know if it is actual collusion or incompetence but it seems to have been a staple story for 20 years now. Don't file for increase, you could get decreased. Well yes, and the sun could go nova tomorrow but I generally don't worry about it. 20 years doing this and I have yet to see a claim

  6. I was thinking the same thing as Shrek, before I read his response. Pretty much 99 percent of the people who get 100 percent P and T get it "ONLY" after 1 or more appeals. Mostly, more than one. (like myself). I applied in 2002, denied, and fought with VA for 17 years, until 2019, to get all my benefits. I still have a few smaller issues, but, unless you are willing to fight VA, "You will get nothing and like it".

  7. Laws are complex and ever changing. That is why you want someone who specializes in this and keeps up with it. Someone you trust and he trusts.

  8. VA benenefits/health insurance/ and social security is "just one" of many issues that should be discussed for estate planning. They are important, but other issues may be just as important. I agree with the others that "hearing loss" is "unlikely" to cause death, but it is possible. There are 2 basic ways of getting DIC: 1. The Veteran can die of a Service connected conditon. Again, this is unlikely "if" his only sc condition is hearing loss. But you may ask him that. Better, however, is to ask him "where are your VA papers", (he may know that) and read it. This is far more

  9. This is a typical thing the VA does. They will go off the date they see, and don't always look to see what the EED is. You need to file to a review of the EED. I have two in right now where they are off by 2 years. The fight continues and you will win! Keep it up.

  10. A little background first on this specific claim to provide greater context for the readers. I had no idea that i had OSA until i got married and through the years my wife has told me about how i would snore really loud, stop breathing at night, choke, etc. pretty standard stuff for anyone that has it. I had buddies in the Marine Corps who told me the same thing after our first deployment, but i had always chocked it up to my dad snored so i snored, the stopping breathing thing was weird but i was 18/19 so your health isnt a primary concern and BAS is only for bones sticking out. I got
