"she has turned my clain over to a someone else, they will only give me 10,000 under disabily "-

Do you know who she turned this over too?

On the page you tried to access your policy- is this the page you are using? (below )

I would use their email addy at the bottom of this page and see who she turned this over to-

I dont understand a few things about your problem-

the RH means -this is Service Disabled Insurance

I believe the maximum amount is $10,000.

http://www.military.com/Resources/Resource...4,31371,00.html has more info too-

It is technically called S-DVI and maybe you are using the wrong designation on the menu at the VGLI site below.

The 1951 date she gave you- that is when S DVI came into existence. I believe the $10,000 they said is the correct amount your beneficiary would get.

These are term life insurance programs and they do not generate dividends.

Frank- in addition to my last post here to you-

I am concerned about this-

Did you say they never paid you VA Compensation for your injury on the USS Hobson?

Obviously since you have what I believe is Service Disabled Insurance policy-they had to have awarded you VA compensation- however-

I am wondering this- did the VA give you a wartime pension insead of the comp?

This would not be unusual if the pension amount was higher at that time and you fulfilled the VA pension requirements at that time.

However one of your posts indicated that you get SSA disability for this same disability.

TDIU would be more money than the VA pension and when one gets SSA for disability same as the one claimed and granted service connection- one should be awarded TDIU.

And a question for all-

when we moved to NY , we were quite astonished at the numerous "lifers" on the VAMC grounds. Well we thought they meant lifers becaue they were on VA pensions- not comp-

We were thinking 20 year or more retiree pension. But the we realized

most of these vets were living at the DOM and getting a VA wartime NSC pension-

in talking to them many seemed to me to have direct SC disabilties yet they seemed to believe that once you get a VA pension, you cant apply for comp.

When we got smarter I think they meant there is no advantage in applying for comp if that would be lower than the pension-

Now that I got even a little more smarter- I am wondering where they got this info because-

if a wartime pensioner has NSC combined at 100%, one or more these disabiltities could at

some point be SC and then , if the disabling condition increases, even support 100% VA comp rate.Yet the vet would have to be advised to file a claim for SC.

My question- If Frank is in receipt of a VA pension, shouldn't he-based on the info he gave us-apply for TDIU? He has the SC rating because he gets S DVI-with the RH code?

(I met a vet on the VAMC grounds about ten years ago and he was doing a little volunteer work for them- WWII vet-I assumed he was totally service connected- he told me just about a year ago that he had 2 PHs, a major hearing loss from service, PTSD from service, and other disabling problems and they just told him to file a claim because it was all service connectable.

aint that the craps- he was always at the VAMC , might have lived at the DOM but they cleaned house years back- kicking out NSC vets -many who later became SC -after being homeless-

how can the VA knowingly treat a vet like this- everybody there knew him-

and know he should be SCed totally yet never tell him to file a claim?)

OK- you get 100% SC- but you are attempting to get an earlier effective date-

This would not be a 1151 claim, it would involve a CUE claim-

Carlie just posted a good one-

CUEs are very difficult claims and are based solely on legal error made by VA in adjudicating the decision.

It pays to put CUE into the BVA browser and then study the CUE claims that come up.

I am unaware of whatever that type of insurance could be Frank-sorry- I only understand that SGLI is active duty service insurance, VGLI is veteran's insurance (paid by premium after service ) and the S DVI is $10,000 for service disabled and I think premiums are always waived.

The scam over SGLI I mentioned in another post was misleading veterans to believe they could get dividends.

(a type of "interest").

I am familiar with civilian life insurance and only a Whole Life policy pays dividends, not a term life one.I know of no VGLI or SGLI policy that does.

I hope someone else mght know more about this type of insurance.

  • question-001.jpeg

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
