  1. You may want to use 3.156c because those records were not available when the VA first decided your claim. Missing service department records.

  3. Folks, you need to read your VSO's organizations by laws. Some do actually state that and it is sad. If your stuck with a VSO, you could be in for the long haul. It is a tough decision, Do I use a Free VSO or do I employ a Certified Claims agent. If you have already have a decision in hand, I know what I would do.

  6. .Not all have access to VMBS. You have to apply for that. Ask if they have access.
  7. Most likely since that is the code for Strain.
  8. It can happen that way. They money beats the letter. Is it more or less than you expected? If you used the AL or DAV to help you call them first thing and ask them to find out. They have likely saw your award already. Look at your letter generator under E benefits. Benefit verification. Also look at vets.gov for claim status. You may find out that way. Basser
  9. If your VSO is an accredited VSO he can see the whole enchilada if he has access to VBMS. That is a very important tool when selecting the services of an agent or VSO. Hint. Most Big Service Orgs have only a Few accredited VSO's. It is always wise to ask this question when you talk to them. Ask do you have access to VBMS to look at my claim on line. If the answer is no, Ask them if one of their reps does have that acess. Most of the Certified Claims agents have access to VBMS. But Claims agents don't usually get on board until you have a decision. It does not have to be a denial. Just one you disagree with. Basser
  10. Ratings of the spine. The spine is broken up into 2 different segments for VA rating purposes. Cervical and thoarcic and lumbar are considered one. If you are rated for an issue on the spine and have a separate issue on the same segment the VA will only rate one as more than one is called pyramiding. They should rate the most severe condition. You may be better off obtaining an MRI of the spine vs an xray. There are also 2 different sets of rating criteria for the spine. One is Traumatic Arthritis. The other is Invertrable Disk Syndrome. If you have Arthritis with no disk issues then it should be rated under Traumatic Arthritis. If the Disk is the culprit then it is rated as IVDS. As for the ratings under TA, it is based on Range of Motion. Any separate nerve issues are to be rated separately. Under IVDS it is rated under incapacitating episodes or basically bed rest. You should look uo the ratings in the 38CFR title 38 part 4 under ratings for the spine. It gives you the ratings and percentages for Both issues. Basser
