  1. I've been awarded 100% via TDIU (70% bipolar & 30% asthma) and I seek back pay to 1997 when I submitted my first claim for bipolar disorder. In my C file the C&P examiner states he found and lists symptoms of my mental disorder in a 1983 inpatient report of when I was hospitalized for two weeks in a psychiatric ward. Is that sufficient for a CUE claim for the start date of my disability pay?
  2. So I started my "Fully Developed Claim" 02/08/2019 had my VA Comp and Pen Exam 03/18/2019 . My original completion date was 08/05/2019. Then after my Exam 05/03/2019. This is my story I've injured both knees, both feet and back while serving In the Army in 2017. progressively my back gave out on me. Now I'm young 25 years, can't work and didn't know about my options until just recently. Lucky for me I was within my year of separation so I got a VSO to work with me and my claim. Still waiting if it's an approval or denial, however today Ebenefits updated status from "Pending of Decision" t
  3. This past Friday I received a decision from Department of Veterans Affairs Regional Office regarding a NOD that I had filed nearly two years ago. In October of 2016, I was awarded benefits at 70% retroactively from 2010. About 4 months prior to actually being approved, I requested that I be awarded TDIU as well. After all the dust settled, I was awarded TDIU back to June of 2016. However, my original claim was from January of 2010. As a result, I sent in a NOD requesting that TDIU be retroactive back to 2010. I was just mailed a letter from the VA stating that "Entitlement to an earlier e
  4. Hi everyone, So I thought I would see if I can get an answer on this. So I got out in October 2011 and had a C&P Exam 5 days later where I got denied on a SC Condition. I reopened the case last year in July, denied again because of no new evidence. This year, reopen the case again, no new evidence but given a c&p exam and was rated at 10% on it. Now, should the effective date be from my original C&P Exam where I got denied, or from 2017?
  5. DAV told me there is no expediting claims anymore even for Vietnam Vets. Only terminally ill vets, homeless, or going to be homeless are expedited, so it took DAV 5 months to get my claim into the system because they trashed it the first time because they are a corrupt organization. Mr. Edwards in St. Louis for DAV got Mr Stephen Kelly his 12 years of retro pay in one week without even filing a claim, the way I read it. Dan Knabe For DAV got Mike Franko’s claim “Expedited” after he had been denied once already, also got him service Connected, got his retro pay, and got him a job with DAV
  6. After 2.5 years, the VA finally processed my NOD which resulted in a 100% rating. I’m very grateful for the help and feedback from Hadit over the past few years. However, I have one more favor to ask. I received retroactive pay based on the effective award date, but it was half of what I expected. I calculated approximately $30k in reto pay vs. the $16k that the VA calculated. Since the NOD took 2.5 years, I had other claims that were processed and awarded during this time, which is outlined below with the effective dates. The sleep apnea claim is the one for the NOD. The calculator
  7. Hi, Thank you for taking the time to look into my situation. I will try to keep this on point as best as possible. I was discharged medically (USMC) in January 1989. The medical board gave me a 10% service connected disability (compensable). After 6 months of being home, I received a follow up letter from Tampa VA. I attended this follow up, and the doctor who looked at me, said “oh you’re fine, I will bring that down to 0%”!! I was furious at how I was played by the system, so I began fighting the system (Congress, 2nd Marine Division, White House, you name it).
  8. First thank you for creating this page. It's been a twenty years fight and reading these pages has made me feel for the first time I'm not alone in it. Active Army 88-92. Last six months in Egypt on a MFO tour. While there I got very sick. It was my last six months of service and ETS two weeks after returning to FT Drum. Six months after I got out started get sick again. Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. Fought it for two years but lost and had my colon removed. Started developing other issues very similar to what they were calling Gulf War Syndrome. Applied for DC in 1997. I was denied do t
  9. back in 2011 I filed for a plethora of disabilities that i received during my time in the air force as a load master. I was given an 80% rating. One of the claims was for depression an ptsd. However, I missed that c&p appt (i forget everything) and i obviously was not given a rating. However, I was sent a letter that says: "You were denied service connection for depression/anxiety/stress because you did not report for the scheduled exam in order to determine if the current disability began on active duty and to obtain sufficient information for evaluation of the disability.
  10. Well it is finally my turn to be happy on here!!! I have waited for a long time to get my VICTORY and I just got the call that I had been waiting for. My other thread "Squeaky Wheel Gets Oiled..." has been on going and great thread I started about my journey. The DRO just called me and told me what she was granting me. Now I need to know about calculations of back pay??? May 2013 was my initial claim. She granted me 80% as of May 2013, however, I have had three decisions during this time. June 2014 - 40% (IBS 30%, Tinnitus 10%, Left ankle 10%, Anemia 0%) November 2014 - 60%
  11. I served in the military in 1996. During basic training I was injured. 1. I applied for disability due to the injury in 2000 and was denied then again in 2002. In 2002 I never received a letter stating the denial. I called several times and was told that I was denied. In 2016 I went back to apply because the back & neck injury that I received in the service is really server now. When I went to reapply the lady at the VA Hospital told me that I was NEVER denied. That I was just rated at 0%. She said that I should have been told whenever my condition got worse to apply for an inc
  12. I filed for disability benefits in Jan/13. Went for c&p exam Dec/14. Was awarded benefits at 40% in Feb./15 with back pay only dating back to Jan/13. I have fellow vets and battle buddies telling me I can file for back pay for the same injuries incurred in 03 in Iraq. Is this true? The reason for the gap between separation and filing is simply because I did not know I could file for VA disability benefits until a school VA rep told me so in 2012. I just want to know if compensation is still owed me and how do I go about obtaining it. The DAV in Indiana helped me file the first time.
  13. I was proposed to be incompetent, so I presented all the evidence possible to convince the V.A. that although my injuries are extensive; I am competent. I waited for about 1 1/2 years for the V.A. to decide that I am in fact able to handle may own affairs and rate me "competent". According to the letter I am rated as competent and I shall continue to receive my full payment. However, I have not received any back payment or retroactive payment. When I called the Hot Line they told me that it will take between 10-45days to process. It is now 97days later and I still have not seen any action take
  14. FINALLY after 8 long years, I was just told that the direct deposit was setup yesterday. I made my original PTSD claim in 04/2007 and my appeal since 08/08 it just got approved Jan of 2015. I was rated 30 percent and my back pay was not as much as I hoped but I'm definitely not complaining. My question though is, how long does it take for it to hit my bank acct lol!!!! I'm just anxious, longest 8 years of my life dealing with this. Semper Fi Brothers, hope nobody ever has to go through what I did to get this! Cpl. Ramirez 02-06 USMC
  15. Hello fellow veterans. I searched to see if a specific thread already existed that was discussing my situation. I filed an initial claim for disability back in October, 2013 using the FDC process. I was assisted by National Service Officer for the Disabled American Veterans organization and he was fantastic. My claim was processed and a decision was mailed to me in early May, 2014. I cannot complain about the process and I am pleased that it was completed in relatively short order. There is one catch. The one year of retroactive benefits pay is still stuck in the payment process.
  16. Hi I served three years in the Army from 2000-03 as a 11c with an honorable discharge. I ets from camp casey korea and had filled a claim during my exit exam for my left knee and left shoulder. Both were approved for tendonitis and i was rated at 20 %. At the time of my exam i also complained of lower back and hip pain on my left side. I belived it was due to my left knee. We were road marching and running a lot in korea, thats what the infantry does. In 2004 when i got my 20% rating for my knee and shoulder the claim for lower back and hip pain were deferred.Fast forward in jan 2013 i went to
