  1. Yes they will back date it to the date the VA says you became 100% disabled. They will refund any payments made on or after that date.
  2. Another huge blessing for our family. Thankful!
  3. So until today, no confirmation on the appeal award outside of E-benefits, and it still shows the appeal as open and pending. However, three separate deposits hit my bank account earlier today. The numbers add up correctly, so confidence is very high on this. Even more thankful in Tampa Bay.
  4. More good advice! Mrs. dwilli12 will be in charge of that.
  5. I'm so sorry I forgot to say thank you to everyone here at hadit.com, especially the founders, admins, and those who post good advice and encouragement to the rest of us. Your efforts make a big difference!
  6. Ebenefits informed me today that my 13 month DRO appeal of a lowball depression rating was granted...moving me from 91% to 95% - which of course rounds up to 100%. What a Christmas blessing, what a surprise! Bigger surprise, the P&T! I thought that having a MH disability (which VA believes can improve) and being only 54 years old would make P&T off-limits. Thankful here in Tampa Bay.
  7. Hello BWA1544, I am curious about the fibromyalgia......this condition is presumptive for Gulf War veterans. https://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/gulfwar/fibromyalgia.asp Is your husband a Gulf War vet? Does he have a current diagnosis of fibromyalgia? If yes to both, then it absolutely should be service connected.
  8. My experience with this is very different. I have had two C&P exams in the last year. One was done by a VA contracted doctor, the other at a VAMC. I requested copies of both exams soon after they were done.....and were denied both times. They explicitly stated that the exam results are controlled by the VARO and can only be released by them. My VSO says that that the VARO will only release them after the claim has been decided.
  9. Definitely file a claim, and make it independant of any other SC connection. click on my username and check out my uploads.
  10. Late for Guardmount, but All Safe and Secure.
  11. Bonzai, Read my posts about OSA. I wasn't diagnosed with OSA until 15 months after I retired, but with three IMEs from my pulmologist, buddy letters from friends and my wife, and SMCs that document severe GERD, I managed to convince the VA it was SC. (GERD is very common in people with OSA, the desparate contraction of the diaphragm to force the body to breathe often blasts stomach contents into the esophagus, windpipe, even the sinuses, it was horrible. Since I got my CPAP, no GERD. NONE.
