Deferred Compensation


TNVietnamvet

Question

My VA Disabilty was just increased from 60% to 80% with Parkinson's Disease deferred, Depression deferred, and Individual Unemployability deferred. I was drawing 30% for Depression, why is it now deferred. I assume Parkinson's Disease has been deferred because of the Senator in VA.

No. Your Parkison's Disease being deferred has nothing to do with the Seantor in Virginia. The new presumptives have to complete all of the administrative requirements before becoming law. The proposed presumptives are now at the OMB (Office of Management And Budget) for a final review. Upon final release from the OMB, the presumptives must undergo a mandatory 60 day review period by Congress.This is a requirement of administrative law. It has nothing to do with the Senator from Virginia or even his admendment to delay. If Congress does not decide to change anything or reject the findings, the presumptives then become law at the end of the 60 day review period. The Senator from Virginia, at this point, cannot stop it.

Expected implementation could be anywhere from mid fall to the end of the year. There is a slim possibility that it could be even earlier. Once the new presumptives become law, then those with one of the new presumptives will be moved from deferred status to actual rating, compensation, etc.

In the past, Congress has never rejected a VA presumptive. Don't expect it to happen here either, despite what the Senator from Virginia may or may not want to do.

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
