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

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
