They will go back to the date you filed the claim if it is award.

When did you file the claim?

Welcome to Had It!

A lot depends on when you filed a claim for Schizophrenic/PTSD. I think you are asking if your claim is automatically made if you are getting treatment for a condition, and the answer would be no. I know some claims are inferred, but I do not know which ones. For my condition, I was initially treated over two years prior to being awarded 10% for it, and that took a RO hearing. But this is just what I experienced.

I filed for an increase in my rating back in 2005 and was just granted

100% P&T retro back to 2005. So yes, I think is when you file for an

increase for worsening of condition and it is finally granted.

I had to go the route of BVA though. Different cases are handled according

to the evidence they have and what they need to make a decision. Can be a long

road depending on the complexity of your case.

crowell98335 - there are only three ways I see you getting backpay to 1990. One is that you have an on going claim still under active continuous prosecution from 1990. Two is that they made a CUE on the denial of that claim that is now final. And lastly that the original claim from 1990 was never decided and therefore still remains an open claim. If it doesn't meet any of those conditions I doubt you'll get any retro money. jmo

To tell you the truth it is still a fog in my head I think it was Feb 9, 1990 was the first time I went to the VA hosp

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
