  1. Hi Everyone I wanted to know can someone look at this for me and tell me in your opinion should i have been rated for migraines. I think I should have been rated, I gave them a good amount of info from my medical record and the IMO and still denied.
  2. HI, Okay quick question and I hope I get some quick advice before its too late. Okay so I put in for an increase in my husband's ihd, and his lungs because he's had terrible residuals since he had radiation for lung cancer. We applied for the caregiver program and was approved but the lady told me that his 100% for his lungs was temporary (which I knew) and that I should be trying to get him increased or made P&T so that his overall average would never go below 70%. So I put it in. Well the rep at the VA went in and said that he was Permanent and Total...yay. So I thought they we
  3. The VA raised the minimum rating for diagnostic code 5201, limitation of motion of the arm, from 10% to 20% back in May 2016. If you're still rated 10%, you should request the increase. The VA shouldn't require an exam, unless they have reason to believe your condition has improved. You should also request an effective date of one year prior based on “a liberalizing VA issue approved by the Secretary or by the Secretary’s direction.” Specifically, according to M21-1, III.iv.4.A.1.g. Selecting a DC and Minimum Compensable Evaluation for 38 CFR 4.59 Per Sowers v. McDonald: “- This policy particu
  4. How long does it take to receive a copy of your c file? Are there any short cuts you can take or do you just have to wait on the mail?
  5. So, I have been really lazy lately, not really, I have an almost fulltime job taking care of my wife, but, yes, lazy when it comes to my VA claim(s). I normally would wait until I get everything nailed down tight for everything I am claiming and put it all in on one shot. But, I don't seem to have the energy to get that all going at this time and the clock is always ticking. I have one canned, one in the works and a couple down the road a few months (new health insurance, private doctors). So, my new plan is to send the one done down range, and keep plugging and sending. I do kno
  6. Greetings - I am new to hadit and forgive me if this question has been asked. My question surrounds two ratings for the same thing with different dates. As background, I was granted IBS with GERD in 2012 and recently had a grant for ulcerative colitis from an appeal. On VA.gov it shows the grant for ulcerative colitis and ebenifits shows IBS with GERD and radiation proctitis for 30% in 2015, without mention of ulcerative colitis. Both the radiation proctitis and ulcerative colitis were issues that had been applied for service connection. The two ratings for 30 percent for
  7. Hello I have a current claim for PTSD increase. I’m currently at 50 percent. I had a C&P exam and I also had my physiatrist who prescribed meds and my LCSW therapist send in the notes. This is sitting in gathering evidence. that’s accurate however I’m noticing claims in ebenefits and the vet .gov site saying claim closed for Payment Issue (New) I don’t even know what this is. It’s showing up as a second claim that’s like i submitted a new claim and I didn’t. The only claim that should be open is my request for PTSD increase. This was showing up when I had m
  8. So I filed for disability about 3 months ago and just had my exam on Wednesday for back and stomach. I injured my lower back a few times while in but feel I never got proper treatment. After I got out I've injured my lower back continuously. I finally had an MRI done and they found a tumor. I had surgery and everything a year ago, the surgeon told me there is no guarantee this is what is causing you back pain. Been a year and half since surgery and still having problems. So I filed a claim I didn't mention tumor but brought it up during my cp exam and exp
  9. Thanks, All The Way. I was rated at 30% after the temp 100%. My range of motion and flexion is no problem. There's just a constant pain that is kicking my but and none of the meds relieves it. My Orthopedic Dr is very good, but I can't seem to get the C&P examiners to understand about the pain. Revision maybe my only option, I just wanted to know if the VA pays the temp 100% after the revision surgery. Is there a reg that covers revision surgery? Thanks for all your help.
  10. What is the VA process as far as pay for revision surgery. After surgery two years ago I was rated at 100% for a year. I'm having problems with my TKR and the Dr may have to revisit. If he has to replace some of all of the knee do you receive 100% temp again?z
  11. Hi Everyone I recently had a supplemental claim submitted by the law firm that representing me on the 5th of October and it was closed on the 5th because page 2 wasn't sent over. I informed them and they resubmitted everything on the 9th and they verified that all the pages were sent over, but when I checked the claim today it still says closed on the 5th of October. I wanted to know is there a set time that they have to reopen the case because it's going on 3 weeks since they have had the info that they need to reopen it.
  12. How do I proceed on filling a new claim for hip replacement(s)? Retired in 2010 BENEFIT SOUGHT: Background - NEW - Service connection for chronic bilateral primary osteoarthritis of hip with a complex labrum tear (Right side).

  15. My son got out of the Navy about a year and a half ago and he didn't get the help he needed to file his claims. Can anyone tell me (so I can tell him) how he would go about filing a claim during the mist of this Covid-19 Pandemic? Thank-you in advance.
  16. I found your website. I have never posted anything asking anyone about this but I'm finally doing something about it and desperately need some advice. The question specifically has to do with my physical exam at MEPS and the presumption of soundness attached to it. If I am found 100% physically fit and did not have to sign any waivers, how can I have a disability existing prior to entry discharge for a physical disability not previously noted at MEPS or in any previous records? Am I correct that unless otherwise noted at my MEPS examination, any physical injuries thereafter beside
  17. I’m helping my MIL who refuses to call but once a month or so to check on her deceased vet husbands claim. She keeps getting conflicting information. She was told in June her claim packet would come in July and that he was going to be paid out on at least 5 claims dating back from Vietnam. He was exposed to Agent orange and ultimately passed 4 years ago from complications. He’s been fighting for this for almost 15 years. In July she was told her claim was in Demand to Pay status. Still nothing. We’ve searched all over the web and found no information about what this status means. Anyone heard
  18. I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my le
  19. I have just received my rating for 2 items at 20%..........Now looking at my rate, I noticed that I have 3 in deferment.....My award is the rate for 20%......What does this mean? there is no pending c&p noted on the deferred items. All it did was push my date for those items May 28- Jun 29th 2018 but I will be getting back pay from may 31 2017 for the 2 items they rated me on. But on the other hand I'm looking at this.......effective date of change.....With my other items, plus unemployable which I noted is not even listed under disabilities, but is listed under my claims.. I left out cert
  20. 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
  21. First an foremost, thank you for your time. I know there are a lot of Vets that are in the same boat and are far more worse for wear than me. Below is the time line- NOV-17 - Filed DEC-17-APR-18- Gather Evidence/CP Exam MAY-18- Preparation for Decision MAY-18- Pending decision approval June-18 Preparation for Decision June-18 Gathering Evidence (C&P scheduled for Physician Review) July-18 Gathering Evidence August-18 Preparation for Decision August- Now Pending Decision Approval Some I'm rated at 20% currently and have filed claims f
  22. How do I get an IG investigation into why the VA Medical Division cannot produce the copies of OPTR that have been removed from my C&P file. At my BVA hearing, in response to the question of how to get the needed probative documents, the BVA Judge responded, "LOL, we can't even get them." The reason is itself very probably probative. Such as we were unwitting subjects in research and the researchers were too lazy to make the double original copies. West Los Angeles VA Medical Center had its Research Credential abruptly revoked in 1999. I suspect the documents I'm trying to get from 19
  23. First time post, long time viewer. Quick question. Is eBenefits typically up to date? For example, my TBI claim is in the prep for decision phase, and has been for some time. Will I see an update on eBenefits before I get something in the mail, or are the chances high that I will randomly receive an envelope in the mail with the VA's decision before the site even updates? Seems like i check at least five times a day for an update. Or, is this another "case by case" or "depends on the region" etc. Thanks. Btw, love this blog/forum. Waiting has made me nearly insane, but I have
  24. "During a live webcast on Oct. 16, VA's new Under Secretary for Benefits, Paul R. Lawrence, Ph.D. said that VA will begin reviewing tens of thousands of PTSD claims filed by veterans who suffered Military Sexual Trauma (MST). " https://www.military.com/militaryadvantage/2018/10/17/va-reexamining-military-sexual-trauma-claims.html Any veteran who has an MST claim or was rejected or low-balled on an MST claim should take note of the above. If you know a vet with this situation, please let them know. If you know a VSO, let them know. Hope it helps someone.
  25. Hello everyone, looking for advice on preparing a new claim for Compensation. My claim was filed as part of the VA's Quick Start initiative (Ramstein AB) on 6 November 2009 with disabilities shown to be in incurred in service 1 January2010. At the time of my evaluation, I put in for connection for lumbago (claimed as lower back injury and lumbar tendonitis: DENIED ) as I had previous had a few issues with my back during my 24 years + service as a Postal Working in the USAF. I had no idea, or even thought about arthritis. Now I have found out that I have moderate right (with complex labrum tear
