    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Success Claims Notifications

Question

Not sure which topic to ask this question on. I put it here because the main part of my claim is for UI. Is there any months that stand out in seeing more success stories than others? As I talk with the 1-800 number lately, the reps seem to be relating to me that my claim is nearing decision more than usual. Claim is over 14 months old. No real concrete statement from them but I am Reading more into what they don't say I guess. They say they have everything in requested and it should not be much longer. I was advised not to add any other claim at this time because it might slow the other down the UI.

I don,t think there is know barring on a month,that more claims get rated,because the rater is require to do a sudden numbers of claims every month.When A claim goes to rhe rater and there is only one issue,your claim will probably get rated between 30 to 60 days,when you have multiple issue,it could be 60 or more.

B) I am writing to inform you that I was quite surprise to learn that only the upper management at the (AMC) regional office Washington DC only had copies of this document, and no one else did not have this particular document fast letter 08-24, it is a letter that is in house memorandum that veterans with pending case that are eight years or older, or any condition that would involve a lump-sum payment over 250K and there is a final decision, they would be red flag at the final decision. The signal on the red flag is "250K RETRO REVIEW" via the VETSNET participant profile application that is internal procedure with extraordinary awards will be promulgated. After sending your folder forward to Post-Determination Team, and then they forward it to Nashville TN overnight to the C&P Service for pre-promulgation review, they will review and the purpose is to see if the final draft rating decision with a determination that is accurate or until they find inaccuracies founded by the C&P Services in Nashville TN. Signature responsibility may only be delegated VSCM M21-1MR,Part3 Subpart vi Chapter1, section-a pre-promulgation reviews was also shock that Senator Arlen Specter did not have this one as well, and there question to me is that was in house memorandum and they have 08-23 and 08-25 but not 08-24 and how did I get it well my response was that I would not reveal my sources, and I am sure that you don't have it either nor you may not have seen it either so here is a brief insight . So now I am sure that you can not tell me that this is not happening to me please review I have sent a copy to the Senator on 12/5/2008 and to the Philadelphia DAV Office, VA STILL DOING BAD THINGS 2008/12

Is that the same bill they passed in July 08' when it requires 3 signatures for retro over 250K? If it is I printed that out -as I just surf the Senate/house site to see whats going on--

September and October. Besides all the holiday leave, many VBA employees run into a "use or lose" status with their leave time and based upon scheduling requirements October to November seem to be common dates to "burn leave". My theory is that most VBA employees crank it up a noch starting in August to clear their desk for "use or lose" leave time. Nobody at the VBA will admit that.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
