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?

    • 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:
