  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Nehmir Review

Question

Received this email today and wanted to see if there was another option. I believe the retro amount was wrong.

Unfortunately, the Court's Orders only permit NVLSP to complain to the Nehmer

Court about certain issues, such as the effective date assigned by the VA. Issues including the accuracy of the rating percentage assigned by the VA are outside the Nehmer Court's authority, and thus beyond the scope of NVLSP's representation. However, the rating percentage can be challenged through the normal VA appeal process (filing a Notice of Disagreement, submitting a Substantive Appeal, etc.) with the assistance of your VSO

The only option is to appeal, unfortunately, one way or another. Can you explain why you think that the retro amount is not correct?

It is possible to ask the VA for an audit, which might disclose clerical errors.

Remember that the VA hopes that you will just quietly take the retro and your monthly check, and basically "go away".

E-Benefits may have your VA payment records. Mine are limited to 2009 to present, even though the VA monthly checks started

years before 2009.

I'm glad that the Nehmer portions of my claim were more or less completed before the "hair splitting" began.

Thanks for the respond.

I did file an appeal on there decision.

They based there retro decision on medical from 2008/2009(paid retro 10%) and disreguarded the medical evident from 2000 and 2011,(should have paid retro at 60%).

Using the 2008/2009 there were able to pay the retro at 10% and not at 60%.

I will not go away and will fight for what is due.

RDT:

Can I ask where this email came from?

Do you have name of a contact person who sent it?

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
