Question

http://www.va.gov/vetapp08/files3/0819858.txt

The vet lost but the decision gives so much info it is good to have it here-

I used part to previous reply- I love this case because Ken-on the brief- I think generated the BVA to expand on the denial.

Ken is a great lawyer.

This is why- for example in my husband's claim-he filed the claim in Nov 1992 but the EED went back to Nov 1991.

Awarded 100% P & T 3 years after death.

The date his entitlement arose was one year prior to the filing of the claim- I have only seen this favorable entitlement date used when the SSA has determined 100% due to SC orior to the VA award.

Also it is important to consider under death claims due to AO.

I got 2 years accrued due the vet, posthumously- when the VA properly awards the AO death claim they owe me the year they didnt pay as accured.

This is one of the survivorship rules of the Nehmer COurt Order and Stipulation- a vet in their lifetime- if they get SSA then ultimately get VA SC for exact same thing- they should push for the year additional retro due to date "entitlement arose." If the SSA award was a year or more prior to the VA date of claim.

Berta,

I'm sure glad that you posted this.

You see, I was awarded SSDI by the SSA a couple of years prior to my 100% SC'd VA award.

For the very same disability(s).

Do ya have anymore "info" that'd help me out......do I just file an NOD, and use the SSDI award as the reason?

Thanks gal.

Unless you are still in the appeal p[eriod for the 100% award -and can NOD it- then you would have to file a CUE claim.

As long as VA had and was aware of the SSA award and it was in place one year prior to the EED they gave you for the 100% SC_ this in my opinion means that-based on the regs-they owed you additional year retro.

Berta, Yes, I'm still within my 1 year time frame for filing an NOD. And, yes, the SSA "award" preceeded the VA "award" (for the same injury/disability) by two years, even though I applied for BOTH on the SAME DAY.

Whatcha think?

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
