  1. 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
  2. I've received two retros, one in 2015 and the last I'm 2017. Both notices said that I was being paid as a veteran with no dependents. During the retro years, my daughter was receiving benefits and stopped in September 2009. How can I be certain if the VA included her portion. Tried to appeal using ramp, but their decision is upheld. What do I do next? Thanks.
  3. im starting to see a lot of people are and have been in the same boat as me regarding retro and change of rating percentage. this question is to kinda find not a time frame but to solidify that something is really off with VA. obviously right im just starting to feel that maybe since this new Ramp program if the DROs or the processors told to drop some things and pick up on RAMP appeals. my past BVA decisions award came within 3 weeks and now its been over 6 weeks since judge grant. so please submit answers as a story and a time frame if you could. THANK YOU
  4. I've been a lurker on here for a little bit, I have been able to find most of my questions answered on here through a quick search, but I'm having trouble finding anything related to my current question. I had a partial grant last month from the BVA; two approvals, one increase, one denial, and two remands. I'm currently waiting on my RO in Muskogee, OK to promulgate my rating. They received my file on February 28th, 2017, and so far nothing has changed in ebenefits, and iris inquiries have left me with more questions than answers. I'm also in an expedited status due to extreme financial

  6. I am showing an increase in one of my SC conditions on E-Benefits as when I opened IU claim they also evaluate SC for increases before IU decision. Does anyone know how long it takes to receive retro back pay for this increase? I am owed 4 months at this point.
  7. Hello Berta and All, I just received my decision letter on one of my appeals, and it's 2 things wrong with this letter... (1) I don't see what evidence they reviewed or why they gave me the lowball 10 percent rating (perhaps there is another letter), and (2) either I can't count or they missed retro for the entire year 2015. Can you VA math wiz out there run the numbers and see how much retro you come up with based off this letter. Scroll all the way down for the answer. Please and thank you. SergeantQ Answer: $13437.20
  8. 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
  9. I had filed a claim that was denied based that it was not service connected. However, I found 3 places in my medical records that show otherwise. I am already past my appeal cut off date. I am going to put it in again. If they approve it this timee will they go back to the original start date, or is there some other paperwork for that? Thanks in advance.
  10. This article recently appeared in the Coast Guard's retiree newsletter put out by the Coast Guard Pay and Personnel Center which handles retired pay for all Coast Guard and NOAA retirees. Thought folks here might find it of interest: I’ve Received an Award Letter from the VA. What happens Now? by Teresa Deckenbach, Military Pay Technician This is the number one question we are asked as pay technicians. This article will give you information regarding our timelines here in Retiree and Annuitant Services (RAS). When RAS is notified that a Coast Guard retiree has been awarde
  11. Warning: Medium sized wall of text incoming. Well, along with the great relief of winning my award for 100% last month came a bit of bad news. On the 27th of feburary, my Retro-pay was sent to a non-existant account due to a single mistyped number in the VA computer system. The payment was returned to the VA the very next day. I immediately called peggy at the 800 number and changed my direct deposit information to the correct number. A week went by (8th of feb) and I called Peggy again to get an update and I was told that because the payment that was returned was so large
  12. Hello all; After I lost my good paying job, the retro became a high priority for my family. I learned a lot from this forum and wanted to give my stats so others who are also waiting might be able to use my situation when guessing the average wait time. After a two year wait after submitting my NOD; I was awarded an increase dated to my discharge date almost 4 years prior. My NOD was settled in July 2012 with the new monthly disability in the 1 Aug 12 pay. The VA submitted audit paperwork to the USAF DFAS who had till 16 Aug 12 to return it back to the VA. They complete
  13. I know this has more then likely been discussed several times in the past, but I'm putting it out there because it's my current experience as I'm living it. Trying to keep it all in one place by adding to other threads that discuss this topic is somewhat frowned upon, which is why I'm starting this one. Synopsis of my process so far: Initial award: 50% in 2004 for a laundry list of things typical to a 25 year Army career of jumping, deploying, sleeping on rocks, not sleeping, not eating, stressing etc, etc, etc. I was in the middle of a bunch of life changes so didn't appeal anything.

  14. Wouldn't it be great if they forced the VA to increase a veteran's rating 1% for each month that the VA took to process a claim after their magical 125 Day response time. 1% might not sound like much, but even under the VA's mysterious rating system, added up, it would definitely make a difference. Plus, it would compel the VA to process claims much more effeciently, knowing there is a 1% penalty per month hanging over their heads. I know it'll never happen, but I had an extra strong cup of coffee this morning, so my brain is in overdrive. Good morning, y'all. Mark
