    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

When Does The Nod Clock Start?

Question

When does the NOD clock start?

Here is the letter a friend received from the VARO:

On the third white cover letter page, the letter says "What you should do if you disagree with our decision. If you do not agree with our decision, you should write and tell us why. You have one year from the date of this letter to appeal the decision. The enclosed VA Form 4107, "Your rights to appeal our decision" , explains your right to appeal.

VA FORM 4107 "Your rights to appeal our decision" (Sep 2009)

How CAN I APPEAL THE DECISION?

How long do I have to start my appeal? You have one year to appeal our decision. Your letter saying that

you disagree with our decision must be postmarked (or received by us) within one year from the date of our

letter denying you the benefit. In most cases, you cannot appeal a decision after this one-year period has ended.

The first page of the stapled packet is dated July 8, 2010:

"What we decided: We determined that the follwing condition was related to your military service, so service connection has been granted."

{insert medical description, percent (%) assigned, and effective date}

"We determined that the following conditions were not related to your military service, so service connection couldn't be granted"

{insert medical description}

A few pages into the packet, the first page of blue VARO "Rating Decision" ruling is dated 11 days earlier, June 27, 2010.

When does the NOD clock start? Date of letter or date of rating decision?

It is t he date of the letter informing you of the rating decision. The rating decision is actually an attachment.

My friend and I think alike.

I hope others provide feedback too.

Thanks

You know if it is a matter of a few weeks you don't want to cut it that close anyway.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
