    Anyone ?

    Wishing you the best of luck. I tried for years with no results ended up having to spend every dime and more of our hard earned savings.
  2. As spouse receiving DIC can I qualify for Life Insurance through VA? If so, where to look at options? Please don't tell me EBenefits or IRIS I can not even get through the system. Yes, I can log in to EBenefits but that is all I can do. When going through IRIS it always asks for Veteran's zip code and unless heaven has zip code don 't know what to do. Adding that if I say general question it still asks the same. Any help? Thanks Ann Bracey

    Title 38 3.22

    When my husband was diagnosed with condition that was finally granted SC for cause of death and DIC for me he was so totally and permanently disabled and it was horrible ! He did not have ability to not only so his job much less file claim! Not only did I lose my husband of 38 years, but lost family I had been a part of since Junior High School. Sad how sometimes the most educated can be so "IGNORANT"! Had I not submitted evidence and filed in 2009 nothing would have ever happened. I am so blessed and thankful for what VA granted me but I think effective date should at least go back to 2009 or 2010.

    C-File dates

    Trying to make myself as clear as I possibly know how. First filed a claim for service connection for husband's condition with a veteran's service officer in Rowan County 2009. Prior to this date electronic submissions through IRIS over and over. My husband died 2010. From 2009, 2010, in 2011 denied SC because he was a Thailand vet. I understand when vet dies claim dies. 2012 filed again 2013 denied for same reason. Filed for SC for cause of death and DIC. It was not until 2017 I finally had hearing and presented new evidence (Nexus). Yes, this letter was not in c-file but there should be documentation in c-file back to 2006 when this doctor treated him until 2007. Hearing December, 2017 granted SC for cause of death and DIC with effective date of 2012. Hoping this will clarify things.
  5. The c-file disc is dated May, 2018 has about 730 pages. I filed for SC with VSO 2009. Husband passed 2010 received denied 2011. C-file states claim or reopened claim 08/23/2010 exact day husband died. Can someone explain why it would say this when I had received nothing saying SC denied until 2011? Can VA reopen claim on day veteran died when there was never notification of denied claim until 2011? Confusing! Also, the 2009 claim filed 2009 never mentioned in claim file. Can you elaborate on this for me? Ann

    Title 38 3.22

    Yes, Angela, I have C-File.
  8. Can an earlier effective date be achieved or proven with C-File evidence? Just May, 2018 I was granted DIC with 3.156 after husband died 2010. I have C-File and information in it shows back to 2003 when he was diagnosed with condition that in 2018 granted SC. Also documentation through IRIS. I have been told different information as to what I should not do by DAV rep stating it could do more harm than good. The effective date now is 2012. Can you help??? Could I get an explanation as to how Title 38 3.22 could affect DIC effective date?? I feel this may apply to me. Service connection for death as well as DIC awarded May, 2018. Hearing was in Dec. 2017 with 3.156. I have not passed the year for disagreement of effective date..
  9. Why would a DAV service officer send me a letter saying earlier effective date denied when I have not even filed my NOD as of yet?? I thought I have a year from May 2018 to file NOD if I disagree with the effective date. C-file clearly shows information beginning in 2003 when diagnosis of illness that led to death in 2010. Electronic submissions are numerous, private facilities, doctors, congressional inquires, as well as formal claim in 2009, and VA medical evaluations, and death in VA Hospice. My husband was unable to file claim because of his disability and mental status that caused IU . I did it all. Now, is it too late for me to file NOD for earlier date??

  11. Hi, Berta,

    I was awarded DIC May, 2018 after years with VA trying to get SC. My husband became ill in 2002 and 8 years later he died. I submitted electronic emails after terminal illness as I struggled to care for him. I needed help finding facilities to meet his needs, knowing there was a VA facility close but that didn't happen until 2 months before he passed. Needless to say if you do the math for 7 years of private pay all savings gone. I won DIC with new and material evidence at hearing 2017. I believe my effective date is not correct. Is a CUE the right thing for me and if so how??

    Thank you,

    Ann
