  1. E- Benefits has me rated at 20% for bilateral severe arthritis of hips, but also states I have secondary bilateral knee rated at 10% for each and 10% for lower back
  2. I'm service connected for bilateral severe O.A hips 10%,secondary lumbar sprine,10% left and right knee 10%.My case was remanded back to R.O for further development for my increase for hips O.A and to set C&P for my throat claim. My question is if granted increase rate for my hips and granted service connection for throat would I have to file for I.U or will they simply grant it if my ratings me the criteria.
  3. I haven't worked in 9yrs, been receiving non service connected pension. My current rating is 20%,but Sept 15 vba remanded my claim for increase to r.o for my claims regarding my hips and throat disabilities. I have hypertrophied tonsils 0%service connected, trying to claim sleep apnea as secondary to throat disability if granted this increase for my hips and sleep apnea, I hope it qualify me for I.U
  4. Vocational rehab already says that I can't do any sitting or standing, that help me get pension, I have severe o.a in both hips bone on bone,I know I can't qualify for individual unemploybilty with 20% that's why I appealed that rating and it is remanded now for further development, my question really should have been can I still file for I.U for claim on appeal
  5. I was awarded 20% ,the vba just remanded back to r.o because I had filed for an increased rating dating back to my initial service connection of 2009, stated my claim needed to be developed further
  6. I was awarded non service connected pension for my bilateral hip problems in 2009, I later was service connectioned for them with award date of 2009. Since same policy under cfr38 4.16 an4.17 govern unemploybilty, should I be able to claim unemploybilty now that I am service connected for my hips.
  7. I am rated at 10% for malunion of the tibia and fibula left knee,10% for malunion of the tibia and fibula right knee, 10% lumbar strain, 10% for left hip, 10% right hip what would be my total rating and would I be able to get unemploybilty rating since I have not been working since 2009 and drawing pension for war time vets.
  8. thank you guys for the info will pursue getting imo
  9. If anyone could help me find Va regulations regarding connecting lower back stain to cause hip problems any help would be greatly appreciated.

    C@p Exam For Hearing Loss

    yes i have one scheduled may 13,and i looked on internet to see what it was and pcp also told me last month that is called tinntius sorry for misspelling.
  13. I filed for claim of hearing loss,not tinnitus didnt even no what this ringing in my ears was until, I joined hadit. So I was wondering when I go to c@p exam what should I do.
  14. Thanks everyone for the insight, Im going to go into depth a little more on my sitution. I have several claims in, in need of two hip replacements because of severe arthiritis. I had an independent doc writing a letter stating the only way I could have gotten oa was from military service.I constantly go to va for treatment, cortizone shots, therapy, and several diffrent meds for pain. In my Smr i got injections in lower back after being injured during field exercise, and other medical records from 2006 to present that I have been getting treatment for my condtion.
