  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Accrued $$$ Under Terry V Principi

Question

A question popped up here in Claims Research as well as maybe the DIC forum on this regulation and I just found some interesting info that might help any widow or widower as survivor of veteran.

I had mentioned in the older topic that although I was eligible for 3 years of accrued 100 % P & T due my deceased husband- the regs at that time allowed only payment of 2 accrued years-and of course the VA always used the cheapest years.I got accrued for 1`991 to 1993-yet accrued from 1992 to 1994 was the higher amount.

No reg to fight that with until Terry V Principi.

Terry V Principi (per NVLSP-VBM, 2009 Edition page 513)”results in an entitlement to much larger amounts of accrued benefits to some claimants.”

Those claimants would be those whose accrued claim was based on death of a veteran prior to Terry decision (May 10th 2004) and who either had a claim pending for accrued at that date ,which was favorably resolved but without the mandate of Terry applied to the retro accrued or- as in my case- who received a favorable accrued decision but only received 2 years of accrued based on the regs at that time- which now have a more favorable aspect.

The info on this is too detailed in VBM for me to post all here due to their copyright – and I will be calling NVLSP this week to clarify something they wrote in the VBM.

They suggest Reconsideration Requests be filed under Terry but in some cases like mine-for a decision on accrued that is now final-they suggest filing a CUE claim.

Deaths after Bonny V Principi- December 2003 receive ALL accrued benefits.

Nehmer Deaths receive ALL accrued benefits.

I cant get the accrued under Nehmer yet because VA doesn't want to rate the veteran's AO disabilites although they granted my husband an direct AO death. My battle continues with the VA on that point.

Accrued Benefits are those benefits derived from a claim the vet had pending at time of death which the survivor formally continued via the 21-534-until the accrued claim was awarded due to medical evidence in the Med Recs and C file at time of death.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
