Have A Claim Question

Question

Well I have had a claim in for P&T for my back since 2009. I was granted SC for back in 2008 if granted does the original claim date go back to the date of claim or when I was SC for it? I had put in for IU but the claim is locked up in appeal it is supposed to go to BVA but I asked for a DRO hearing since I thought the claim of IU was satisfied with Doctors letters but the letters from Surgeon was not looked at even though it was submited prior to the appeal for IU before the claim was sent to BVA. I am told I have a video confrence this fall (I doubt it until I get the letter. Any ideas Thanks

The date the entitlement arose or the date the claim was filed, whichever is later. So if you had an exam that showed a condition had eroded then that exam would be the date of entitlement, If you had no exam and the VA sebds you a c and p exam then the date would be the date the claim was filed.

We don't actually file a "claim" for P&T status.

If you have doctor/s that are willing to put in writing that your SC'd disability's are not likely

to improve and that in their opinion you are totally and permanently disabled due to these SC'd disability's.

You can just submit this to your VARO and ask them for any future review examinations

to be cancelled based on the doctors opinion.

I don't really have any guesstimate what date they will apply to your IU, if granted.

Thanks I was not sure I had got SC for my back but the date I had claimed IU was before I was SC for the back. I got the worst luck of anyone I believe.

I showed my Doctor the requirements that the VA required me to prove I was IU and P&T was his Idea after he was reading the MRI and he shook his head and said my back has changed after the surgery and my back was showing mild arthritic changes from my Surgery since the surgery in May of last year. I read where you live in KY I love your state but the cold weather I cannot take any more. I hunted up near Patudka(?) 20 years ago while I was in USMC lots of beautiful country women up there and the deer were huge not like up in IL all of that corn I guess. Have a good day and thanks

Thanks Carlie your advice and others have always been on the spot. As you stated I claimed P&T based on what my Surgeon had written that I was P&T and I filled for IU but I slipped up and had my claim in the pipeline to go to the BVA before I had my ducks in a row. I could not understand why they bumped it up my claim was not even close to a year after they denied me for my claim of IU. I sent the Letters and the Doctors paper work for Aid and Attendance but I was told I could ask for a DRO hearing before my claim for IU went to the BVA I put it in writing and the VA now tells me that I have a video confrence. I thought it was a DRO at my VARO and not at the BVA. Am I missing something?

I am moving out of state and if the VARO grants me P&T based on my medical evidence surgical notes how will that impact the previous claim for IU? That was my other question I hurt my back on active duty and it slowly progressed to the point it is today. After 3 surgeries I walk with cruthches when it is warm and a walker and house bond when the weather gets cold. I am in a real mess right now but I take advice from you guys and gals I have listened to others and I missed so many legal issues I quit asking others and keep my questions here. Thanks have a good day

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
