  1. 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

  3. Good afternoon, I needed some advice in regards to my current VA battle for an effective date change. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE Timeline: April 2013: (During Service) I was taken to the emergency room for headaches and nausea where CT scans were taken. This occurred during training on active duty. - ever since then they have only worsened Feb 12 ,2018: Filed Claim for headaches May 4,2018: Claim DENIED for headaches I was unaware of supplemental claims and truly didn't think I had anything to prove the decision was incorrect so years went by. Octo
  4. Hi, I just received a 10% rating for a claim I once was denied for. Do you know if I am entitled to retroactive pay to the first date of my original claim? They did regard this as service connected but awarded me a 0 rating back then. Not sure if there is something I can do as I have had this pain since I left the military and didn't appeal the 0 rating in the beginning. Any advice? Thank you in advance.
  5. Hi Can compensation increase from 10% to 100%? My appeal is for increased rating, numerous secondary disability, TDIU and temporary total disability Its been on appeal since 2015
  6. Hello, Quick background; I injured my back severely in Kuwait in 2013(I was 22) no proper medical exam or treatment at the peek of the injury just pumped full of pain meds. Once back in the states it still took months before Someone decided I actually needed an xray just to be told I was fine. There were times where I’d experience temporary paralysis below the waist, daily pain levels above 5, numbness, pinching and burning sensations in lower back and to be told nothing was wrong made me want to give up and suffer in silence because no1 seem to take me serious. However the pain was so in
  7. Hey guys, I don't know if I'm in the right place but i was needing some clarification. After fighting with the military for six years, the C&P examiner stated that my condition precludes me from any physical occupation. I developed asthma back in 2012, while in service. Is that typical wording for pretty much everyone? I guess my English isn't that great and i would like someone to please explain to me what that entails? The examiner also stated that there is a 50% chance or greater that my injury was incurred in the line of duty, does that mean that they serv
  8. How much can they see, how much can they tell me? I seem to get almost nothing but cryptic information from my VSO. Are they restricted from telling information to me while the claim is not yet complete? Or is it possible that she withholds the information having been burned by changes in the past?
  9. Hey all, I recieved news that my increase claim was granted and I went from 60% to 100% On my ab8 letters it says the date changed is may 20th, with an effective date of june 1st. Does this mean I'll receive the backpay for june and july?
  10. In 2012, I was denied service connected for Necrotizing Myopathy. At the on-site of my disease my private doctors believed my muscle weakness was due to my statin meds. This is the reason the VA turndown my claim. I also submitted the claim under desert storm undiagnosed illness since sat time my condition was being examine to to find the try cause of the illness. After further testing, my diagnosis were Limb Girdle MD (adult onset). The reason I believe the initial, claim may be a CUE because the condition was chronic and therefore as should had fallen under presumptions. Am I correct?
  11. I just wanted to see if anybody out there has been short changed by the VA IRT retrograde payments. I am 100% service connected. I filed 01 March 2015 and received my first VA disability check on 01 July2015. I received a "retrograde payment" on 11 June 2015 in the amount of $2,296, and just received $4,240 on 25 August 2015. I then received a letter form the VA stating that my only compensatable months were April and May. does this sound right to anybody? I feel like I'm being shorted 2 months of retro payments. Any help would be great.
