Hi Guys, I am hoping you can give me answer to my IU claim. I recently was award 50% for PTSD, along with 60% for my eyes (particularly my left eye) and was bumped to 80%. I was sent the forms to apply for IU. I went to my eye doctor (who is board certified) and asked him to fill out another "nexus "letter. He is very familiar with the VA procedures, having worked at a navel hospital in the west. He was surprised and said "aren't you IU already". I told him no, that the V.A. had rated me 60% for my eyes he nearly fell on the floor. He said "this is wrong, you should be at least 80%, they really screwed up". So he write me two letters, to include in the package for IU. That was December 11, 2015. I received the BBE January 9, 2016, stating they rating me to 100%. They also said the following (and I quote) "A clear and mistakable error (CUE) is found in the evaluation of bilateral macular degeneration and bilateral pseudophakia, rated as residuals of left eye injury, and a increase of 80% is established December 12, 2014." A VSO person told me in 17 years he never seen where the VA openly admitted to a CUE. He said I should "frame the letter". Will I receive retro pay from the date as specified. The first page says $2,906.83 ( I have no dependents) states as of Jan. 1, 2015. Thanks for your input, and all your help. I speak for others, we would be lost without your guidance and input
