New Va Tbi - Letter From Varo


carlie

Question

Much to my surprise today I received this letter from VA.

It states that the new evaluation criteris became effective Oct. 23,2008

and that I maybe re-examined based on the new criteria.

I feel this would certainly allow me to recieve more for TBI than

my current 10 %.

I'm posting a copy of the letter here and feel more vets will be getting the

same letter soon and should all respond.

Hope this helps a vet.

Amazing how that sent the letter at the end of the month. Put in your claim right away so that you preserve your date of claim.

I have a theory that may be useful. Check the October 23, 2008 edition of the Federal Register by going to their website and see if V.A. published a new regulation on that date pertaining to head injuries.

I'm also surprized they are sending the letter out.

I havn't gotten one and I'm leaning towards not being re-evaluated even though my interpretation of the regs would put me at 100% plus. I asked about it on the forum but no one replied.

Old rating are not supposed to be reduced if the new rating is lower. Does a P&T vet gamble on that for a possible 100+70% rating? Tough to decide untill I see how ratings under the new schedual are handed down.

Most vets should be re-evaluated though.

Carlie,

seems like It was posted that the VA increased the rating for TBI to 40% some time ago.

Does anyone remember?
