  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Thanks, John!! I'll try to listen later today, or tomorrow. I'd like to point out, to everyone, that CUE's aren't that hard to win. I've assisted with a couple/few of them and won each time. The criteria looks hard but it really isn't that hard to meet. jmo

I agree Philip

as long as all of the medical evidence has been established-

then all the vet has to do is identify the legal error that altered the initial outcome.

actually it is more involved than that but

anyone with the VBM or who accesses BVA and CAVC can readily see why successful CUEs were awarded.

They are not a one shot deal either as in many cases where BVA denies the CUE, they point out the denial is not prejudicial (meaning if the veteran shapes the CUE differently , then it could possibly succeed.)

My CUE claims will be pending for 7 years soon.

Complete lack of rating and percentage for the veteran's established and fatal IHD under 1151 in 2 past unappealled decisions.

(Sameo sameo under the more recent direct SC award for DMII causing CVA and IHD due to AO)

And inaccurate ratings for the veteran's totally disabling CVA under 1151 (now direct SC under Nehmer)

and due to these errors SMC was denied as an accrued benefit.(SMC is mandated as an inferred issue when the medical evidence warrants consideration whether under 1151 or direct SC or-in my husband's case, under both.)

Three legal errors and two past decisions offered as proof of the decisions as well as other legal citations from OGC and BVA (only in legal respect as to those decisions)

These were very short CUEs that took up only half of a sheet of paper to explain and then refer to attached evidence and regulations.

The VA for the last 7 years so far has confounded the issues, failing to make any statement at all regarding my legal evidence.

These CUES are now under Nehmer and might be rendered moot by the new regs.

You are right in my opinion but anyone filing CUE must keep their focus simplified solely on the legal errors.

The VA might well attempt to confound the issues as in my case (they even wanted me to buy some pseudo 'reg' they made up)

but my focus for the last almost 7 years in any rebuttal I sent in -has always remained the same as to the legal errors they made.

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.

    • Thanks everyone for their answers and advise and yes Ido have a VSO American legion but unfortunately I still have to manage to work and call times are mornings only almost impossible to talk with him.

       I am gonna try to get ahold of him tomorrow but u have to call right at 0730 eastern OR call list fills and never get on his list sucks!

      The worst thing I’m going through is that I’m stuck in limbo I can’t file on my other things I can’t add nothing I can’t do anything basically my hands are tied, this is complete wearing on me mentally Not to mention I’ve been out of the service since 95 was six service-connected disabilities and then thrown to the wayside as a young adult with no knowledge of how what or when by the VA  now that I’m middle-aged my service-connected disabilities Have gotten so severe that I have multiple secondaries until I came across by chance a VSO in my county that helped me out back in 15 I’d still be at a loss and left at the wayside forgotten about now that I’ve been back in the system And have a 80% rating the VA now is trying to drop two of my ratings because I feel that this DRO rview is going to put me at 100% or really close  in a way to just keep us down and out and causing worse injuries by forcing ourselves to do what we have to as humans to survive in the workforce that you can’t really physically do anymore sucks all the way around!
