    Possible Retro Pay

    Navy wife The things i do not understand about this i have other military medical evidences 1996, 2001, 2005 multiple , 2006 and 2009 civilian. In jun 2010 VA did not bother to review those records except they focus on one medical military record dtd sep 2005 , the doctor stated my vertigo is stable at that moment and civilian medical record when I was already retired. In October 2013, i resubmitted my claim resent all medical records pertaining to my vertigo plus VA medical records. They still denied it because they referred back to their decision letter from my initial claim. I had another claim in jun 2010, no records, Zero evidences, the VA awarded me 10%!!!! I am not complaining but VA has no consistency. Anyway thanks for the advice about the nexus I will try to convince my PCP. Mabuhay!!!

    Possible Retro Pay

    broncovet here's the response I got in July 2011 when I first file for vertigo/dizziness in June 2010 but the VA calls it "benign paroxysmal positional vertigo BPPV: service connection may be granted for a disabiltity which began in military service or was caused by some event or experience in service. You have claimed service connection for vertigo. A review of your service treatment records shows your were treated in 2005 for vertigo and low blood pressure ( I don't recall going to the doctor for low blood pressure) which resolved. Your private treatment records show that you were treated in 2009 for complaints of vertigo when you get up in the morning. A VA examination was requested and conducted. (It never conducted). At the examination you reported feeling dizzy when you wake up in the morning.(this never happened). the examiner dx BPPV. after review of your service treatment records he opined that your current rare vertigo is not related to established in the military.(end) My questions is what about my military treatment records back in 1996, 2001, my Pre-doplyment assessment 2005, my Post-deployment in 2006, plus my 2013 VA medical treatment? Did the VA never bother considering those as military treatment record? //BREAK// here's the response I got in May 2014 when I filed the second time in Oct 2013: The evidence you submitted is not new material. Therefore, your claim is not reopened. it is not material because it does not relate to an unestablished fact necessary to subtstantiate the claim. and/or does not raise a reasonable possibility of substianting the claim. You were previously denied service connection in a rating decision dated July 29,2011. with notification sent to you July 30, 2011. Your claim was denied because no medical link between your current claimed condition and military service. Although you were seen for one episode of BPPV in service the VA examiner concluded your current complaints of dizziness were not related to the episode in service. In order to reopen your claim new evdince must be received which is material to the previous denial. You provided copies of your service treatments regarding your episode in service along with statements discussing your symptoms. The evidence is not material since it was already considered by the VA examiner in the previous decision. Your claim remains denied as there is no evidence linking your current complaints to military service. (end) broncovet I typed it letter for letter word for word from the decision letter, but this decision just go round and round. thanks. //break// thanks everyone who send their congratulations!!!!! and keep fighting and good luck!!

    Possible Retro Pay

    Hello everyone, new to Hadit am glad i found this site because it gave me a lot of ammo to fight my battle with the VA. Anyway I filed a FDC in oct 2013, may 2014 got the bbe from 40% to 60%. I was awarded 30% for anxiety. It says my 60% effective date was Dec 2011 because that's when I initially filed for anxiety. Do I get a retro pay with this increase?

    My Next Move

    Hello everyone I am new to this website am glad I found it ! VA denied my vertigo/dizziness in Dec 2011 because they said there was no military evidence link to my illness even though I sent them copies of my military medical records stating my vertigo/dizziness with multiple dates 1996, 2001, 2005, and 2006. One from my civilian doc in 2009 when I retired. In 2013, I started seeing the VA with my illness . October 2013 I filed again and received a denial again May 2014 and did not bother to reopen it because they refer back to the Dec 2011 denied decision. Is NOD will be my next appropriate move? Thank you all!
