  1. Got my letter today. They did give me the 2004 effective date for my breathing issues. Even though my overall rating didn't increase, I am going to receive some substantial retro. Good news
  2. Thank you for the response, broncovet. I'm just worried because they gave me a 2017 effective date at 30% for graves disease about 10 months ago but since I've been IU P&T l00% since 2016, I got no retro for graves. Now for some crazy reason they lumped in my lung issues as secondary to graves disease. Looks shady. Anyways, when I get the official award letter I will post an update Thanks again.
  3. My question is should I be worried that the varo added my lung issues as secondary to graves disease in regards to possible retro money? I've had breathing and thyroid issues, along with a list of other things since my desert storm days. My appeal had been ongoing since 2004 and recently granted and closed by Bva. For some crazy reason they gave me a 2017 effective date for graves disease and a 2004 date for my breathing issues secondary to graves. I don't get it. They are to separate issues. So am I going to get retro back to 2004 on the breathing issues? By the way, I haven't got my award letter yet, just going off of ebenefits info.
  4. Yeah my varo is out of los angeles. Was surprised to hear back so soon. They combined 4 issues into 2. Gave me 30% for one and 0% on the other. Didn't change my rating. Was hoping for 100% schedular Not surprised tho
  5. Christie, I heard back today from varo. They lowballed me as expected. Hope yours goes better.
  6. I'm in the same boat. Bva appeal granted and closed on 6/12/20. Haven't heard or received anything yet. Good luck with yours.
  7. My Dr at the VA clinic helped me set up the account right there in the lobby. No credit checks, no hassles.
  8. I get all that broncovet. I actually feel the same way. I only shared that screen shot because I had never seen that before and was wondering if anyone had ever seen that before. I imagine it had to be an error on the va.gov site.
  9. I know, I've never seen it before either. But I copied it directly from va.gov while I was looking at my commissary letter. If you reread what I copied and pasted it states specifically to bring the dd 2765 along with your dd 214 and award letter. Like I said before, I've never see it before either and thought I'd ask if anyone has seen it
  10. Thanks. As stated earlier, I have the brown dd 2765 already. But what I was asking about was the specific instructions in bringing in your dd 2765 along with with other paperwork to receive retired military id card. I had never seen those instructions before, so that's why I was asking.
  11. Didn't know where to post this question, so please forgive me if it's in the wrong place. Anyways, I was looking through my letters via va.gov and noticed the instructions for the commissary. When I received IU PT at 90% I obtained a dd2765 ID card to access the px and commissary. So my question is are we entitled to a retired military ID card if we reach 100% scheduler? The instructions below confused me a little. Thanks in advance for any info.
  12. Thanks broncovet, that's what I figured. What's a few more months after 16 years
