Can one ask for reconsideration of a claim without submitting new evidence, if one claims a clear and unmistakable error (CUE)?

Yes, but there has to be a clear and unmistakable error in the decision. If there isn't it does no good to claim that there is. The person looking at the claim of clear and unmistakable error can only change the prior decision by calling it CUE and this must be signed off on by the Service Center Manager. He/she can't change the decision simply by substituting his/her judgement for the original decision maker. So consideration of CUE is not really a "reconsideration". All they are doing is looking to see if there was an error in statement of fact or application of a law that resulted in an erroneous decision (see also "Clear and Unmistakable errors").

Re-opening claims:

Applying for an increased evaluation:

If you are already receiving service-connected compensation from VA for a/or disability(ies) a/or disease(s) and they have gotten worse since the last rating decision, you can request an increase in evaluation from VA. This is also known as a claim to Re-open. To do this you just need to write the VA a simply letter with your claims number on it (usually your SSN) stating that you believe your service-connected disability(ies) have gotten worse and you would like an increase in evaluation. Along with this letter you should attach any treatment records pertaining to your service-connected disability(ies) since your last C&P exam and rating decision. Once the VA receives your request for an increase, it will go to the Pre-Determination Team and go through the steps I previously mentioned in reference to an initial claim. In other words, you’ll receive that “Duty to Assist” letter again and all the things surrounding it. After your claim is “Ready to Rate,” it will go to the rating activity for a decision, just like a normal claim would. Once the RVSR has made a decision, the rating goes to the Post-Determination team to be promulgated as would an initial rating does. If you disagree with the RVSR’s decision, you can appeal that decision just as any other rating decision outlined in “Appealing an issue with VA.”

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
