  • 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.

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

    • 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!
