Nod And Cue Intertwined

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




Carlie, I posted that a NOD and a CUE claim could be claimed at the same time based on the fact that I did one. The NOD disagreed with the effective date of the increase I was awarded due to the fact that I had evidence in my file that proved that I had already met the increased requirements and VA did not review my entire file. The Cue was for the mistake of over looking my entire file. The BVA remanded my claim to be reconsidered. Do you think they will still deny my claims for earlier effective dates?

Thay are intertwined but are still two seperate issues - with one depending on

the outcome of the other.

You can file a NOD on a rating decision (within your timelimits) that disagree's with

say the effective date granted - and an earlier effective date, at times can be granted

due to a CUE.

A CUE is filed on a final unappealed decision.

OK, so I can win two ways, the VARO has to address the NOD and the CUE, they both will give me the same results and if they both are denied I still have them on appeal. Does that makes sense to you?

It's possible to ask the AMC(RO) to CUE them self, rather than waiting for the BVA decision and if still against the Veteran the decision, rather to ask the BVA to also CUE them self too.

The cue has to be filed at the level the cue was made.

A Cue must be an undebateable error that reasonable minds would differ and would change the outcome of the original decision. ( Cost the Vet money).

a claim does not become final until 1 year passes from the last decision date to include all appeals.

Your are better off asking the Ro to cue themselves per the BVA judge.

I think by sending both the NOD and the CUE as distinctly separate statements (in case they start a separate folder for the CUE claim as they did in my case)-

as Carlie said these are inexplicably intertwined-but these days it is hard to expect them the consider the NOD and then the CUE if in same letter to them- It is ok to do it that way-dont get me wrong-it is just that -it can be one more way for them to bugger it all up.

I had a claim that was on appeal. I was waiting on a hearing with the BVA. In the meantime, I filed another claim for another condition. In the VARO's VCAA notice, the claim that was on appeal was addressed. I provided a statement in support of claim and the evidence. However, when I responded to the claim on appeal, I did so in the form of another NOD/CUE.

In short, I did not respond specifically with a statement in support of claim but with a notice of disagreement in CUE format.

VARO then cue'd themselves on that particular claim.

I don't know the particulars of your case. I believe that my situation is unique, however, I know that you can indirectly ask the VARO to CUE themselves through an NOD because I did it. BUT...my claim was final..the decision had been rendered three years prior to me sending in my so-called "second NOD (statement in support of my first disagreement with decision they made the first time)." Confused...yet!?

At any rate, you can't go wrong taking the advice of those who have already posted.

  • 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
