  1. I applied for and was approved for SMC L in 2015. I also applied for and was denied entry into the post 9/11 caregiver program in 2015. I'm aware of the 2 year statue of limitations, but I have circumstances that would allow for an argument that would allow for an argument that I wasn't aware until recently. I know that this is kind of light on details, but I'm not exactly sure what to put and how to proceed. Is a denial over entry into a caregiver program potential grounds for a FTCA lawsuit though?
  2. https://cck-law.com/news/special-monthly-compensation-explained/ http://www.militarydisabilitymadeeasy.com/specialmonthlycompensation.html Both of the above claim a veteran is entitled to R1 when I tried looking in the m21 and the CFR, and I couldn’t find anything to back this up. Has anyone ever heard of someone qualifying for R1 based on the above or know if there’s something I’m missing in the m21 and CFR? Thank you in advance. PS I called the law firm and an attorney is supposed to call me back.

  4. I currently have a 40% rating for Fibromyalgia that was initially rated as scheduler. All I know is that the QRT for my jurisdictional VARO did a full claims review on my file and the Fibromyalgia changed to permanent. The only reason I know this is an inquiry team member had called me about an unrelated issue and offhandedly mentioned it to me. I did an ebenefits chat session so as to preserve all of this in a pdf. I know this is to my benefit, but aren't they supposed to inform me of the change in some official big envelope way?
  5. Decision turned out okay, but definitely not what I wanted. I've done everything to this point and the toll ends up effecting my family. Does anyone know of a good lawyer that has extensive experience when it comes to CUE and SMC?
  6. Copy that. WWP was representing me, but they pulled out on me right at the end. Even had their National Service Director arguing with me via e-mail on a Friday night for 3 hours. I'm the son of a Vietnam Vet who had a VSO who is the son of a WW 2 Vet that had I don't even know what. Can't really let the WWP ditching me at the last second go, you know?
  7. I have a weird situation involving a couple of CUE claims . Right now the claim is at preparation for notification, but when it was pending decision approval , all of a sudden I had two separate SMC L ratings. The two separate SMC L ratings are still showing with the claim at preparation for notification. Should I be getting really happy or is this some kind of glitch most likely?
  8. My entire claims history is currently being reviewed by the St. Pete VARO Quality Review Team. Not quite sure what to make of that.
  9. john999, The SAH/SHA grant is basically dependent on loss of OR loss of use in the extremities. I faced the same problem you did, which was/is the VA not recognizing pain,fatigue,weakness, etc as loss of use. Per the information contained in the picture above, the VA is required to recognize the symptoms we experience with our conditions as functional loss (i.e. loss of use.) If you still have the decision letter concerning your claim for a housing grant, I'd suggest you check it to make sure they didn't apply the above pictured information to your claim. If they didn't, you have a
  10. I ran into a number of problems related to recent claims filed and ended up reaching out to my RO. Someone from their inquiry team responded with the following. I've actually had interactions with him before (he is a former rater) and he was extremely helpful (including in this instance), and two claims showed up on ebenefits as reopens for an earlier effective date for SMC L and SHA. The claim for an earlier effective date for SMC L was cancelled on 09/27/17 and now shows as this on ebenefits . Beyond the cancellation, they changed the "disabilities claimed" to "Claim for P&
  11. Ebennies. I haven't really looked into va stuff hardcore in a while and I'm honestly beat down most days that I couldn't dedicate the time and energy to go hardcore again, but I knew about the vas duty to infer and the m-21 letter jumble it falls under. So I started ebenefits chats and iris inquiries seeking info and got the bs answers you'd expect. Then I'd save the conversations as PDF files and submit them as part of my claim and say "the va is obligated by law to assist veterans in claims and these are the resources we are provided." Eventually (and not easily) I found the updated m-
