  1. Afternoon fellow vets, A question I get all the time from other vets, and a question I have is, does age play a factor when a veteran is IU P&T and over 62? In other words, do the work restrictions for earned income still come into play AFTER the IU veteran turns 62+? Example: Joe/Jane Veteran is 62, IU P&T, and wants to work stocking widgets on a shelf in Mr. Woo's Grab and Go department store. Does Joe/Jane need to worry that the VA will come after them for working, and threaten to zap their IU? Thanks, Allan 2-
  2. @Shrek, no he didn't file for tinnitus back in 1990. He did file numerous times for hearing loss AFTER 1990, but was denied a higher rating than the original 0% from 1990. The veteran was awarded TDIU P&T in 2016. Allan 2-2-0 HUAH!
  3. Got a veteran who is TDIU P&T who won 10% claim for tinnitus as a secondary condition to bilateral hearing loss, dated The original hearing loss connected to the above award was dated 11/20/1990 and read "Hearing loss right ear" rated as 0% In this newest award it reads "Tinnitus secondary to bilateral hearing loss(previously rated as hearing loss, right ear 0%) 10% dated 11/18/2019. 1. Did the VA moot the 11/20/1990 by mistake as the date the tinnitus should have been secondary to? 2. Can the veteran expect any retro, and how far back?
  4. I agree with Berta, A CUE is probably the last route to take given that this issue can be handled locally, and only entails a few months retro, and not years. The Regional office using a 21-526 should handle this issue in a timely manner. Appeals, CUEs...are too complicated for this issue. Allan 2-2-0 HUAH!
  5. @bronco, and the downside of a CUE is that you have ONE shot to get it right. CUEs also have to have the right wording in order to be accepted. Kuwait, CUEs can be complicated, and I suggest if you go with a CUE, contact Berta here on hadit.com, she's the "Queen" of CUEs. Her guidance helped me win my CUE some years ago. Allan 2-2-0 HUAH!
  6. Appealing in this case will probably take forever. If you're a member of American Legion, DAV.., present your case to them BEFORE you do anything else. Many times, veteran's help organizations have "inside" sources that can speed things up, especially cases where Retro is involved. Allan 2-2-0 HUAH!
  7. @Paul, Lots of Omega-3, green teas, fish, fish oils, daily multiple vitamins, and try to walk daily as much as possible. I'm sure you already know the diet and exercise routine by now. I've been doing all the above now for bout 3 years, have lost 32 pounds, blood pressure is excellent(eat oatmeal daily), and all my labs, including LDL/HDL are normal. I'm mid 60's, and cam e to realize you just gotta make some life changes when it comes to your health. Allan 2-2-0 HUAH!
  8. Yes Buck, Gastone gave a lot of good information out. I have one email from him that had me laughing so hard, I choked and spilled a glass of Crown & Coke all over my keyboard! Hope he returns real soon. God is good. Allan
  9. Man Buck, this is scary, I was just wondering about Gastone myself. I was going over my emails from him, and was wondering what happened to him? Hope to God he's OK. Allan 2-2-0 HUAH!
  10. @Paul, and I digress, there are a FEW occasions when P&T won't "save" you, and the main one is IF(strong if) someone gained disability awards, payments illegally. There is one other RARE way P&T won't save you from reduction, and it has something to do with mental conditions. Allan 2-2-0 HUAH!
  11. @Paul, generally if you're over 55 and are P&T, nothing to worry about. Doing this VA thing for 25 years now, I've only seen two cases that were proposals to reduce, and BOTH of them were for mental conditions, and the veterans were NOT P&T, and were under 55. Allan 2-2-0 HUAH!
  12. @Dustoff, this disputes buck's contention that you just had to be in the military DURING Vietnam to be presumptive for CAD. Is there something in writing that states you had to have "boots on the ground", for presumptive CAD? Allan 2-2-0 HUAH!
  13. @Buck, there are many reasons to file after you're SC 100%. SCMs, TDIU wanting to get 100% Scheduler for working reasons, Retro... hadit.com's lawyer Chris Attig advocates that there are 5 reasons to file AFTER you've gotten 100% I'm a good example of it. I have worsening SC conditions that weren't included in my TDIU P&T, that date back to 1990. Granted the Retro will be sweet, but for me, the 100% Scheduler is even better(I have my reasons). Allan 2-2-0 HUAH!
  14. @Buck, the difficult part here is that CAPD doesn't show up on any known tests the military or VA gives. Like tinnitus, it's presumed that the veteran has it after other ear-related diagnoses connects the dots, and the veteran admits hearing sounds. Providing a connection to active duty will probably be as difficult as connecting sleep apnea. Doable, but hard. Allan 2-2-0 HUAH!
