  1. Hey all. Back again. I recently filed a supplemental claim for mental health diagnosis less than a month after my initial decision. My initial decision for the mental health claim was other stressor related disorder even though I have had multiple diagnosis of PTSD from personal psychiatrists. I was also rated way lower than I should have been due to the C&P examiner. I was recently approved for a change in the condition from other stressor related disorder to PTSD and increased from 30 to 70%. They changed the effective date of my mental health diagnosis to january 5th of 2021 (when
  2. 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
  3. I couldnt find an answer in teh archives, maybe i just wasnt wording it correctly. In terms of the 5,10,20 year protections if you were granted... 2010-30% 2015 -50% 2020 - 100% for a disabilty, is the 100 percent an effective date of this year or 2010? is the 30% now under 10 year protection but the 50% only under 5 year protections? or does the whole SC restart its protection dates upon any new change whether increase or reduction?
  4. Hello, I would really appreciate some guidance on next steps. Please let me know if I forget any useful information. I had 2 items go to the BVA. I had a claim for tenosynovitis of right hand/wrist/forearm which was originally denied connection and the other issue was for scar. The BVA said my tenosynovitis was service connected so that was taken care of. The scar was remanded because of a incomplete c&p exam. Pretty sure when I filed NOD I also said I did not agree with the exam because I complained of scar pain and the examiner never mentioned it at all. So my init
  5. On 09/25/2013 I submitted a claim for tinnitus. Received a VA letter dated 06/09/2014 informed me that the VA could not find my complete service treatment records could not be located and therefore unavailable for review. all efforts to obtain Has been exhausted based on these facts the VA determined that further attempts to obtain these records would be unsuccessful if these records are received at a later date the decision will be reconsidered. if a different decision results, that decision will be effective the date of this pending claim. (09/25/2013) Well I was denied for tinnitus. So on
  6. I need some help with my effective date, I applied for Migraine increase on Feb 19, 2019. VA denied it. Recently looked in c-file and the C& P exam results were favorable, it was done at a VA facility by VA doctor neurologist. In the decision letter dated Jun 20, 2019, rater never gave a reason on why the exam results were disregarded. I got an independent medical opinion and filed a supplemental claim on April 10, 2020. Another C&P exam was conducted on june 24, 2020. Va approved the claim and gave an effective date of jun 24, 2020. I believe that I can claim CUE here as the effe
  7. Hello Everyone! Posting here for the first time! I have been reading this forums for quite some time and gathered ton of information on here and regret using third party services to get my rating pushed upwards but, that is a discussion for another day and probably no point in thinking about it now. Anyways, I would like to get some advise from all the knowledge folks here in terms what my next step should be. First of all, I am currently rated 100% P&T as of June 10, 2020. I have been rated 90% since 2011 Dec. I was never thinking about 100% until recently when I filed for a nec
  8. This post is in reference to an effective date for Migraine Headaches secondary to a Service-Connected condition. 1. I filed migraine headache claim 2015 or 2016, claim denied. 2. Filed a NOD went to BVA, BVA remanded back to VBA to (Take necessary action to implement the grant of service connection for headaches). 3. VBA assigns 0% rating. 4. I then filed for an increase obtained with an IMO report and DBQ (Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Dr. Valette!). 5. VA increased Migraine Headaches to 50%, effective date 02/27/2020. My question is, are secondary conditions and their effective date
  9. Hi, I am curious and thought I would ask here. I was trying to find out what my effective date is. I reached out to the DAV to find out if they would be going back to 2011 since my initial C&P exam. Here below was there response: 10/20/11, you filed a claim 1/17/12, the VA said you failed to report to exams (FTR) 4/2/12, the VA deferred decisions on your back and GERD 3/11/13, the VA denied the claims because they said you failed to report to exams in 2012 12/31/13, you filed for your back and GERD again 11/27/15, the VA denied the claim THIS IS WHERE IT
  10. I received a letter from the BVA dated May 24 , 2018 stating that I had been granted service connection for some issues and a remand for other issues. I am still waiting on an effective date and rating. My question is will the VA implement the grant while waiting on the remand? how long does this process usually take? I was ok while my case was on appeal but since I received my grant I have went crazy. I check e benefits 3 times a day and i cannot stop wondering what my new rating is. How long does this process take? I thought I had won my case but nothing has changed. sooo tired of waiting on
  11. I was awarded 30% service connected for sleep apnea when I left the military in 2008. In 2013, I was directed to and took another sleep study. It was found and the VA agreed that I needed to start using the CPAP. VA reviewed the evidence, agreed, paid for and I have been using the CPAP since 2013. In Sep 2019, during a review of my records, my representative informed me that using the CPAP meant that my SA rating should be 50% versus 30%. I filed an increase claim and was increased to 50% with an effective date of Sep 2019. Shouldn't the effective date be April 2013 when the diagnosis was rec
  12. 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
  13. Hello all, I have an initial claim under review by VA and also a claim under review with the BCMR. There were clear administrative errors that allowed me to be discharged without disability evaluation. Would I have more chance of success for a VA EED, earlier than initial application, if I pursue equitable tolling or should I just pursue equitable relief under 38 USC 503(a), or should I wait for the BCMR decision? My understanding of reading precedent is that tolling may not apply to VA effective dates prescribed by 5110. Would a BCMR ruling granting retroactive IDES proce
  14. The issue: I’m on the verge of filing a large VA claim to include migraines, erectile dysfunction, obstructive sleep apnea, and a few other conditions. However, I think I may be eligible for an earlier effective date going back to 2008 for the migraines and ED. I’m hesitant to file for the migraines and ED in this claim because I do not want it to nullify my chance at an earlier effective date. Background (long read, sorry!): After reviewing my C-File, I'm pretty sure VA underrated and possibly clearly and unmistakably erred (CUE) 11 years ago in their decision based

  16. In anyone's experience in preceding a formal claim submission with an Intent To File notification, does CFR 20.305 (Computation of Time Limit for Filing) rule apply to the Intent To File process timeframe requirements for completed claim award effective date? ------- My scenario: On 8/06/2015 (Thursday) my Intent To File notification was received/logged online by VA via eBenefits. The next month my mother was hospitalised by coma and died at end of month. For several months afterwards, I did nothing with the claim. During July 2016 I completed the claim in eBenefits but could not sub
  17. Not sure if I am posting this in the proper forum, Mods, please move if inappropriate.

  23. If you are asking, "Am I entitled to an earlier effective date (retro, could be big bucks)?" Information about Reductions (5 year, 10 year, and 20 year protections): Then read about these and see if they apply to you: 1. http://www.purpleheart.org/ServiceProgram/Training2014/BasicEFFECTIVEDATES.pdf 2. The above is an updated version of the 2011 effective date training. However, for some the 2011 version is easier to understand: http://www.purpleheart.org/ServiceProgram/Training2011/W-2 Common VA Effective Date ErrorsL.pdf .
  24. Hello everyone! I'm in the process of digesting my latest claim decision and am drafting a NOD to address a denial of cerebral thrombosis/TIAs and a lowball of the migraine increase (from SC & 0% to 30%). Can I appeal the effective date? There's a statement regarding the effective date on my migraine increase which says: The effective date of this grant is XXXXXX. Entitlement to an increased evaluation has been established from the date of the medical evidence showing an increase in disability (Headaches DBQ completed by Dr. XYZ). When private medical evidence showing an increa
  25. I was originally 80% service connected for a litany of issues but 70% for ptsd. I was going to the psych and was given medication which i had bad side effects from. After telling the dr over and over again I finally stopped showing up. I would get notices from the va and simply throw them away without looking at them. Well in 2009 I was reduced from 80% total to 70% total. Fast forward to 2014 and the va was actually shorting me on the 70% money and in speaking to the VSO they said I should ask for an increase because my symptoms at the time had been worsening. I filed a claim for an increase
