Cue Needed?


jlshand

Question

My award is based on the wrong filing date. The rater "missed" an informal claim letter which I submitted to and got stamped by the VARO two months earier. I have the stamped copy, do I need to begin a CUE claim to get the extra two months of retroactive award or is there an easier ,quicker way?

If i need to CUE is there a form or will just a letter with the facts and a copy of the stamped infromal claim letter do?

Thanks

How long ago did you receive the award on this claim?

If it was over a year ago summit a copy of the stamped letter and file under 38 CFR 3.105 a. If less than a year you should be able to file an NOD. Good Luck.

3.105 Revision of decisions.

(a) Error. Previous determinations which are final and binding, including decisions of service connection, degree of disability, age, marriage, relationship, service, dependency, line of duty, and other issues, will be accepted as correct in the absence of clear and unmistakable error. Where evidence establishes such error, the prior decision will be reversed or amended. For the purpose of authorizing benefits, the rating or other adjudicative decision which constitutes a reversal of a prior decision on the grounds of clear and unmistakable error has the same effect as if the corrected decision had been made on the date of the reversed decision. Except as provided in paragraphs (d) and (e) of this section, where an award is reduced or discontinued because of administrative error or error in judgment, the provisions of 3.500( (2) will apply.

Also- if less than a year (but keep an eye on the NOD filing date)-

a letter just asking them if they made an error (not a CUE) in your retro date might get faster result-

They denied me a pension just before I was awarded DIC-

But their addition and multiplication on the denial was all wrong- I wrote them a letter and they fixed it-and awarded a partial pension until the DIC was awarded-

it took three weeks for them to fix this-it was a simple mathematical error.

If that doesn't work the NOD should get it resolved.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
