  1. Question number 1: what caused your hearing loss? In order to get compensated your hearing loss must be associated with an incident or incident that happened during your service. Then, hearing problems must be diagnosed by a licensed audiologist and must include two tests: a Maryland CNC test (measures speech recognition ability), and a puretone audiometric test (used to evaluate your level of hearing loss). I would submit what you have then the VA will set you up with a C&P exam
  2. For that you need to ask Carnac the Magnificent. I have been waiting since Jan 10, 2019. Good luck.
  3. They may be, however, they are not on the presumptive list.
  4. No one can tell you how long it will take, it all depends on the RO and what letter of the alphabet they are working on this year. You're only 4 to 5 months in so I would say that you have enough time for your attorney to submit the evidence. Good luck.
  5. Are you running a VPN? My VPN has, at times, caused me problems similar to yours.
  6. https://www.military.com/paycheck-chronicles/2019/01/11/2019-va-disability-payment-schedule.html The only difference I have experienced were holidays.
  7. Go here: https://www.index.va.gov/search/va/bva.jsp put "appendectomy" in the space where it says: "find these words" , check the years you want to search, i.e. 2018, 2017, etc. This will bring up hundreds of BVA decisions having to do with Veterans appealing a multitude of "disabilities" having to do with appendectomies. Read the decisions to educate yourself on why they were denied or why they were approved
  8. "You will receive a reply in 5 business days" - That's another joke
  9. Found this on www.usa.gov/veterans-housing : It may be worth a phone call If you need in-home care to help you remain in your home, the VA may be able to help. Call the VA Health Care Benefits number at 1-877-222-8387, or contact the VA medical center nearest you.
  10. As long as you have the Doctor's diagnosis do as brokensolder244th said. Include copies of the doctor's diagnosis. Then the most important part will be that you have a nexus between the disabilities and a cause while on active duty. The doctors have to say that x during your service was "at least as likely as not" the cause of the conditions you are seeking disability for. The Caluza Triangle.
  11. Looks like they are moving everything to VA.gov. They sure have mine screwed up. I'll give them a couple of days then try calling Peggy.
  12. I am receiving full retirement pay (22 years) and am receiving CRDP (Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay). I am receiving 90% disability pay. I did not understand why I should apply for CRSC two of my disabilities are not combat related so I would be receiving less if they granted me CRSC - which is not true, they figure out which is best for you. In Florida my real estate taxes are reduced by the percentage of my disability that is combat related. So, I would say that you need to check with your state to see if it is advantageous to you. In either case I don't see how it would hurt to apply.
