  1. I am not asking for comments on the Monomelic Amyotrophy- I am asking what you feel happened to this claim. and to the IMO............the NOD was filed due to 2 2012 decisions- 8 years ago and the remand is dated 05/05/15. I see no "error" in the BVA decision , and do not understand the representative's idea of 2 year window to fix that error......but you need to read the whole thread to see what happened.
  2. I looked on my ebenefits today and saw that on a "claim for military pay in lieu of compensation was updated/filed in July" Why would this have been filed? I did not file it, and I did not retire from the service. I did have a case that a Court of Veterans Appeals judge was ruling on and my attorney called me a few weeks ago and said the might be open to reviewing IU for me. Is this related possibly? How? I did get a separation payment when I left the service and the VA withheld all disability payments until is was all paid off. It took about 10 yrs but was satisfied. Since then I have re
  3. Hello Vets Its been 5 years since I filed my appeal. I am still at 10% sc and I am asking for a rate increase and or TDIU. Since my initial decision my back issues have gotten so much worse. Constant pain in low back with muscle spasms. and now I have neck issuses causing my Right arm to go numb during sleep and throughout day. Opinions on my outcome Anyone have similar problems or can relate to my story. I'm on SSD for 5 yrs as well. One month after I was granted VA comp at 10% I was awarded SS disability unable to work.
  4. So any help would be appreciated. I had won my case at the court of appeals an they were suppose to remand it back down to the bva. The va agreed that they messed up on my diagnosis of brain damage, migraines and PTSD I received from several IEd blast. I have been fighting this for six years now. They contacted me and told I would have to have two more C&P exams so they can render a final decision this was in march of this year. Last month instead of them giving me my exams I was notified that they reviewed my case and did not need to speak to me. Is this right shouldnt I be able to see th
  5. Sorry for not being active. There really wasn't anything going on with my Remand until June 29, 2020. I have three issues on Remand; SC for Post Thoracotomy Syndrome including chest wall defect and damage to intercostal nerve, increase bronchial asthma higher than 10% with a EED prior to April 2017 and TDIU. I'd logged in to va.gov last Monday and saw that one of the issues; SC for the Collapsed Lungs was Granted. The other two issues are still open. So, I'm now reading all of the prior cases to try and determine what kind of Rating they are going to assign. The increase for Asthma s
  6. Well folks, I finally crossed the goal line that I have been moving the ball toward since I started this adventure in 2010. A few days ago, I saw all kinds of crazy activity on eBenefits and VA.gov as I went to check on my slow shuffle in the BVA line. I had already had my hearing and had several claims granted, and was waiting for the VA to move forward on the granted conditions, or see if they were were going to handle the remaining two remanded conditions that didn't amount to much anyway. I was sitting back with something like 33,000 claims still ahead of me in the slow march, so I
  7. Just found out today that Huntington WV RO has my Remand. This is good news. I was hoping to avoid having my Remand going back to Philly. Anyway, Huntington has already requested a C&P Exam. I'm going Dec 13th. Pretty quick. Huntington did my hearing loss and tinnitus claim. Claim filed Jul 2019 and Granted Oct 2019. They seem to be quite efficient. Now let's get to the exam; they want another PFT (pulmonary function test) and then a medical exam. Here's the weird part; the medical exam may not be a Doc. They told me his first name. So, my Lawyer wants me to load up my paperwor
  8. This is my latest C&P what am I looking at? Can anyone break this down?

  9. Here is my TBI exam that was ordered in a remand from the BVA. Now I will sit and wait for the decision to be made.

  10. Question about the rating and decision process on remands, and my apologies for any inconvenience trying to understand the remand process. When the remand is sent from the BVA to the RO with specific instructions, can the RO make a favorable decision and give a rating on a previously denied claim (remand) if they see fit upon review of the case and file?
  11. Good day to you all, I have a few questions concerning the appeal process as it concerns the decision, BVA, RO, and claim date that hopefully you all can chime in to help clarify. 1. When the BVA letter indicates a "complete grant" for sought benefits, does that mean award the maximum rating allowed? or just award and process? 2. Story Line - In my case, the BVA stated in my letter a few remands (for nasal related issues) and a "complete grant" for sleep apnea (Received the letter 5 days ago). The letter indicated my claim was through a credible lay statement (which described my
  12. Hi, I am currently rated at 20% for my shoulder. I went in for a CP exam recently and these were the results. This is a remand exam from the BVA. Am I looking at a decrease to 10 or even zero? I am not bending my shoulder so it may dislocate for any of these people or any examination and I think it may have hurt me. If you could take a look I'd appreciate it. Thanks for your time!

  13. 10/22/2014 Decision & Claims File DispatchYour case has been received at BVA, and BVA has mailed your decision to you (and your representative, if any) and will be returning your claims file to the Regional Office. Please note that transit times vary, and there may be some lag time between when BVA forwards your claims file to its appropriate location and when that location receives it.09/04/2014... when i call the 827-1000 number they tell me they cant access my remand,, So how do i get information on the status
  14. Hello, I'll introduce myself with an email I wrote to the VA on AUG 15 My name is Michael Noce and I am an Army veteran of 2 deployments diagnosed with PTSD due to military service. My claim was originally filed in 2005. It was denied and appealed in 2007 and 2009. I also had a travel board hearing. A compensation and pension exam was scheduled but could not be kept due to Hurricane Sandy and transportation issues in 2012. I was given the oppurtunity for a 2nd hearing because the original travel board judge retired. A video hearing was conducted in December 2012 with BVA Judge Susan J. Janec
  15. I received a letter from BVA which states the following appeals dated 2009 have been remanded back to St. Petersburg Regional office: increase in rating for fibromyalgia ......currently 20%, increase in rating for IBS.....currently 10%. Also, in March 2013 I received service connection for MDD secondary to fibromyalgia....30% . I filed a NOD on the MDD rating. I already had the following appeals at BVA level since 2008 and they went before the VLJ on April 2013 PTSD, Migraines and Bronchitis.. Instead of providing a decision on the appeals which were already at BVA level...they have been r
  16. My BVA claim was remanded to my regional office in St. Pete, Florida. There, they denied my claim for Fibro(Diagnosed and confirm) and High blood pressure (Diagnosed and confirm) even though, I am a gulf war vet that served in the Asian pacific theater (Iraq) as well as being diagnosed with HBP within one year of leaving service and have been on medication since then. Anyhow, on August 31 my claim arrived at the DAV up in D.C. It has been there now for 3 months and those lazy bastards have yet to get to it. I called they stated that they have between 30 to 90 days to get to it. And no doubt
