Eed - What's The Difficulty Level

Question

not sure if this is the correct forum for this question...

NSO is going to try for EED once the ms secondary issues get rated. is this a fairly long process like an appeals thing?

I believe he will have to file an appeal when you get rated if you want an EED. Why was the request for the earliest effective date not included in the claim? What are you basing the request for an EED on in this claim that is about to be rated for a different ED?

i don't know why that request wasn't included. i suspect, he wants to get all the ms medical related rateable issues listed/granted first.

i think, due to va sc'd the ms last year. that date goes back further than the date i filed the original claim for ms on. medical evidence proved the ms sc at during active duty. so i think he wants to claim earlier date -- which makes sense.

claims were filed way back then though not for ms (seems everyone swept that aspect under the carpet all these years). so maybe he thinks ED is the way to go versus CUE ? hard to say. i can't seem to keep all this straight in my head. hadit always returns calls! ;-)

Get the EED if you can do it since the VA owes it to you and your VSO thinks they owe it to you. It is often best to get a rating and then go back and file a CUE or for EED. Getting the rating is the main thing.

I am going through an appeal for an earlier effective date right now. They are just as complicated, if not more so, than an original claim. Let me just give you ONE example: Did you know there is a "3 part test" to see if a visit to your doc is an Informal claim to establish the effective date

To be a claim, it has to meet all threee of these criteria:

1. It has to be in writing. There is pretty much no compromise on this.

2. It has to "show intent" to apply for benefits. It is not enough that you go to the doc and talk to him about your arthritis you think was caused by an old service wound. You see, the VA will say, "Ok...well he sought treatment for arthritis, this is different than asking for benefits for arthritis". You have to "show intent" to apply for a benefit.

3. And, you have to meet the defination that "specifies the benefit sought". This can be complicated. You are supposed to be able to "point to a body part and say, I want to apply for the knee?" Question is, which knee? does this include the thigh? What if the other knee compensates and hurts too? What if its a muscle problem that spreads to other areas of the body, or even moves?

Next, when filing for an eed, you have to worry about previous decisions. Were they timely appealed? If not did you forfeit your EED by not appealing? Did you "continiously prosecute" your claim, or did you abandon it.? What issues did your NOD encompass?

EED's are one of the most complex parts of VA law, and they take years.

    • 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.
