    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Nod Did Not Meet Legal Requirements


Wow, I cannot believe what is happening with my claim, I have a copy of a Report of General Information that a VA VARO employee mailed to me that states i disagreed with the rating decision of my back condition and that I request a decision review officer DRO to review the decision and consider all evidence submitted since the original decision (1985). This is stamped received July 6 2011by the VARO mailroom. It also states that I am submitting additional information regarding my notice of disagreement in the near future, it also requests expeditious processing due to financial hardship. It is signed and initialed by the employee.

To cover my own a** I sent in a certified letter to the VARO which was signed for by a VA employee as received on July 11 2011, my appeal period was set to close on July 12 2011. This NOD was submitted on a VA statement in support of claim VA 21-4138. The appeal information disappeared on ebenefits today and I called IRIS they said a letter is coming my way which states my NOD did not fullfil the legal requirements for a NOD and closed it. This decision was based on the information that the VA employee had submitted on my claim July 6 2011, over the phone (he sent me a copy of it). The IRIS person said their was no record of the NOD letter that I sent in and that was certified delivery on July 11 2011.

All this is after I requested a reconsideration of my denial from the July 2009 claim in Oct 2010. They sent me a letter that stated if my intention was to appeal the denial of the 2010 claim that I needed to do so within one year, this gave me 8 days to write a NOD and send it to them.

I guess I will know more when the letter arrives tomorrow but I wonder how the little green certified card will handled. Is this proof that my NOD should be reopened or can they deny, I wrote on the card NOD Notice of Disagreement.

    • 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.
