  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

I see you did file NOD already -still you could file for reconsideration anyhow and see what they say-

I learned a long time ago that what a vet rep says might or might not be fact-

if they dont have the right answer I think they often just make something up.

Berta:

I couldn't agree with you more. You get a different answer from them everytime you call about the same issue. They (VA reps) are poorly trained and "shoot from the hip" too often. Plus, I think they're overworked and are probably stressed out. Anyway, here's the regulation on my situation:

e-CFR Data is current as of January 29, 2008

Title 38: Pensions, Bonuses, and Veterans' Relief

PART 3—ADJUDICATION

Concurrent Benefits and Elections

Browse Previous | Browse Next

§ 3.710 Civil service annuitants.

Department of Veterans Affairs benefits may be paid concurrently with civil service retirement benefits. However, payments will be considered income as provided in §3.262 (e) and (h).

[29 FR 15208, Nov. 11, 1964]

I never heard of "filing for reconsideration". How does that differ from the Decision Review Officer?
