We have a widow here who has posted in the Introduce Yourself Section and again I think in the AMC question Section.

I tried to assess what she posted but I feel she would do better in the Claims Research Forum and asked her to post here- is this OK?

Others in this forum might offer her better advise than I did.

her handle is akwidow

It seems that now that I have discovered hadit I make it a habit of perusing all new information, and try to absorbe old posts as well.

Thank you Berta for starting a post here for my benefit and for those also in my situation.

In my remand statement from Court of appeals on part says: http://www.va.gov/vetapp08/files2/0811271.txt

The appellant's December 2007 correspondence further raises

the issues of entitlement to service connection for asthma,

and a higher rating for service-connected post-traumatic

stress disorder (PTSD), both presumably for accrued benefits

purposes. These claims, however, are not currently before

the Board. See 38 C.F.R. § 20.200 (2007). Whereas these

claims have not been adjudicated by the RO in the

first instance, to include the question of whether they were

timely filed pursuant to 38 C.F.R. § 3.1000© (2007), they

are referred to the RO for appropriate development and


My late husband applied for service connection for asthma in 2000 or so. Where they say” ... Whereas these

claims have not been adjudicated by the RO in the first instance,... “ isn’t that a contradictory statement since he applied for service connection in the past and was denied? I gave VA a dot by dot documented calendar of his catastrophic treatment of asthma that included VA and private medical records that spanned 30 + years. Most of these records were contained in VA files. Wouldn’t this constitute CUE, and my addressing that issue be a CUE request?

Since my husband had ptsd since VN, and since he filed for ptsd disability three other times in the past and was denied, is my case filed March 2004 just after his death a sign that a CUE is in order for ptsd as well?

Thanks for your time,

Welcome to Hadit.

I doubt there is a CUE at this point.

Did your husband have any active open claim at the time he died?

Others will chime in.

  • 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.


    • 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.

    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
