  1. When there is limitation of motion of major joints then they are rated at 10% each. Hands are minor joints. Wrist are major joints and are rated separably. Key thing to remember is when you check for each major joint and it's nonconpensable is when the 10% for each major joint apply.
  2. I found on M21-1, Part I, Chapter 5, Section G paragraph d. It tell what should be done with each BVA decision, including implementing BVA grants. Thanks for the input
  3. Hi all, I have a Remand from the BVA in August 2018 and the VA sent me a letter asking me to opt in the Ramp program. They also called asking if I wanted to opt in the Ramp program. I said no! The main reason I said no is because part of the board decision was a grant of an EED from 1993 til 2013. I''m looking to get a hefty back pay deposit. Now the problem is the RO has not implemented the BVA decision yet and my understanding is they should implement the board decision before working the Remand. I feel if I opt in for the remand they will not implement the board decision until they finish with the remand. My question is do anybody know or had any experience with a grant from the board and a remand and then opt in the Ramp, and how did they work it? Thanks for your time!
  4. Congratulation on your grant!

  8. Now, the wait for them to implement the decision. How long will this take, I know it needs 3 signatures because it's over 25k?
  9. broncovet- it's only a 10% increase from 30% to 40% If you read my thread titled " Cue on Original Claim" you will get the details behind the win. Thanks!
  10. Hi everyone, I just wanted to share my success at the BVA. I received my decision in the mail from the BVA and they granted my appeal for an EED back to 1993. I filed my first claim back in Jan 1993 for two conditions. They only adjudicated one of the the two conditions at that time. I filed another claim in 2013 for the same condition and was awarded for the condition. I filed a NOD for an EED and was denied, so I filed a form 9 that I did myself and Won!
  11. Update on this thread. First I like to thank all those who has giving me advice on this particular thread. I received my decision from the BVA yesterday and I was granted two, remanded one and denied one. One of the big grants was my earlier effective date back to Jan 1993. I particular want to thank Asknod for your advice on how to attack the EED. I took your advice and did a NOD for EED instead of trying to get the EED by way of CUE. I wrote my own form 9. I did all the research of applicable regulations and president case that applied to mine. The VA law judge applied some of the same regulations and cases that I had on my form 9. Again, thank everybody that gave me advice! This is money that my family and I really need whenever it gets implemented. I know it takes 3 signatures when it's over 25k. Now the wait again, ugh!
  12. L, I'm happy to hear about your success with your claim for ssdi. I applied the day after I had to retire early from my job because of all my illness. I'm 58 and my illness is well documented and my doctor even said I need to retire because my job will only make my condition worse. I filed the end of June and hope I have a decision by the end of Aug. Keep fighting K!
  13. I separated the end of Dec 1992, but filed my initial claim Nov 1992 before leaving service and was awarded 30% Feb 1993.
