  • 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

Bva Remand Cue And Nod Intertwined

Question

The Board remanded the claims, in part, in December 2008 so the RO could address motion for revision based on CUE in October 1998 and November 2003 rating decisions. The RO issued an October 2009 rating decision which denied both motions. The appellant then submitted a November 2009 Form 9, in which he reiterated an argument that the earlier determinations overlooked his IBS and assigned him an incorrect rating, and failed to conduct appropriate development in 2003, and improperly assigning a 30 percent rating for psoriasis. The Board finds that the appellant has disagreed with the October 2009 rating decision as to the determinations regarding CUE and evinced a desire for appellant review in using a VA Form 9. Remand for issuance of a Statement of the Case on the CUE motions is warranted. See Manlincon, supra.

The appellant's earlier effective date claims would be render moot if revision based on CUE is granted. Thus, they are intertwined with the CUE motions. See Harris, supra. The board defers again of those claims at this time.

Please keep in mind that I am just trying to get an earlier effective date of both issues. VA had the evidence in my file but failed to review my entire file. Since I was already awarded the increase I am just seeking to correct Va's' mistake in not reviewing my file. It sounds like BVA agrees with my claim but there are other issues that have to be address also. I am just interested in your thoughts on this part for now. As I said, once the remand comes available, I will post it and ask for more opinions.

Your CUE's are on unappealed final decisions, correct?

The actual wording of the remand will help us understand this more-

Good for you for pursuing this!

Berta, this is part of the remand that I just received. I just keep reading it over and over again and it sounds like to me that it is very much in my favor. I am waiting for it to come up on the BVA search so I can post the whole remand. So I am thinking that I gave them enough information to prove that VA should award me an earlier effective date on both issues and then reopen my other claims. I am not sure how long it will take to come up on the BVA web search but I will definitely post it when it comes up.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
