Question

First, let me say thank you to all of you. you have been a valuable asset to me over the short time i have been in this forum. But, as of recently, there are some folks who just simply get me stirred up. my first thought is to just say screw it and delete my account. no great loss to you all. maybe i will sleep on it and see what i think about it in the morning....either way, i wish you all well in your future endeavors and hope you get the help you want and/or need.

Sister, You are the FNG, stick around long enough for folks to get a feeling for your claim. I know it's hard to ask for help, I was a FNG 10 years ago and was all over the place until I understood veterans here really do want to help, but they have to ask you questions in order to get clarity on the issues you are dealing with. If you find a better place on the www to help with va claims, please let us know too, and we'll add that to our database. You are going to have to fight the VA, better to dig in and stay put!! ~Wings, USAF, woman vet with rape-related PTSD.

It would really be a shame if you left cause in the end your claim is yours to win or loose and you are the one responsible for it.

If someone here is bothering you you can ignore them. If someone is bothering you please let a Moderator know.

I hope that you stay and win your claim. If you do leave you can come back anytime you feel like it.

Put them on your "ignore" list (board feature). Keep your eyes on the road, your hands upon the wheel ... ~Wings

    • A few days ago, my attorney sent me this email on a PTSD claim I filed back in 2016 and have appealed to the BVA.  After getting this email, I checked eBenifits & VA.gov and they still read, "waiting to be sent to a law judge".

      "I am reaching out to give an update on your case. We are currently pending a Rating Decision in response to the Board Appeal filed 05/18/21. If you have received any recent VA correspondence, please be sure to inform our office"

      Thank You

    • I have a C&P exam scheduled for next week for sleep apnea. I completed an at home sleep study sent by VES. However, I just visited ebenefits and noticed that my claim has been closed before my scheduled exam. Anyone ever experience this?

    • I already get compensation for bladder cancer for Camp Lejeune Water issue, now that it is added to Agent Orange does it mean that the VA should pay me the difference between Camp Lejeune and 1992 when I retired from the Marine Corps or do I have to re-apply for it for Agent Orange, or will the VA look at at current cases already receiving bladder cancer compensation. I’m considered 100% Disabled Permanently

      The 5, 10, 20 year rules...



      Five Year Rule) If you have had the same rating for five or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless your condition has improved on a sustained basis. All the medical evidence, not just the reexamination report, must support the conclusion that your improvement is more than temporary.



      Ten Year Rule) The 10 year rule is after 10 years, the service connection is protected from being dropped.



      Twenty Year Rule) If your disability has been continuously rated at or above a certain rating level for 20 or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless it finds the rating was based on fraud. This is a very high standard and it's unlikely the rating would get reduced.



      If you are 100% for 20 years (Either 100% schedular or 100% TDIU - Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability or IU), you are automatically Permanent & Total (P&T). And, that after 20 years the total disability (100% or IU) is protected from reduction for the remainder of the person's life. "M-21-1-IX.ii.2.1.j. When a P&T Disability Exists"



      At 55, P&T (Permanent & Total) or a few other reasons the VBA will not initiate a review. Here is the graphic below for that. However if the Veteran files a new compensation claim or files for an increase, then it is YOU that initiated to possible review.



      NOTE: Until a percentage is in place for 10 years, the service connection can be removed. After that, the service connection is protected.



      ------



      Example for 2020 using the same disability rating



      1998 - Initially Service Connected @ 10%



      RESULT: Service Connection Protected in 2008



      RESULT: 10% Protected from reduction in 2018 (20 years)



      2020 - Service Connection Increased @ 30%



      RESULT: 30% is Protected from reduction in 2040 (20 years)
