"PUT IN AGAIN IN JAN,2011, GOT S/C WITH A DATE OF FEB, 2011--60%"

I WILL ASK A CONTACT I HAVE AT NVLSP.

IT LOOKS TO ME THAT THEY STUCK WITH THE CLAIM DATE ONCE THE IHD REGS WERE IN PLAY.

I THINK THE ACTUAL REGULATION DATE IN THIS CASE CONTRIOLS HPOW FAR BACK THEY WILL GO.

I AM NOT SURE AND WILL CHECK WITH THE LAWYER I KNOW AT NVLSP.

THIS IS GREAT NEWS ON THE AWARD HOWEVER_ CONGRATS AND GREAT NEWS ABOUT YOUR HELP WITH VISION PROBLEMS.

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

IT MIGHT TAKE A DAY OR MORE FOR ME TO HEAR BACK FROM NVLSP-I JUST EMAILED THEM.

QUESTION:

DO YOU GET SSDI BENEFITS ?

ARE THEY SOLELY FOR THE IHD IF YOU GET SSDI?

IF ANSWER IS YES TO ABOVE DOES THE VA KNOW YOU GET SSDI FOR IHD?

I HEARD FROM NVLSP MINUTES AGO:

I AM PUTTING THE IMPORTANT PART IN CAPS DUE TO YOUR VISION PROBLEM:

"Hi Berta,

 

It sounds like the veteran with AO exposure in Korea should be entitled to an effective date of 8/31/10.  Since he did not serve in Vietnam, Nehmer doesn’t apply so he can’t get an effective date prior to 8/31/10. However, the VA’s normal rules regarding liberalizing rules apply.  Here are the rules:

 

1.If the veteran was diagnosed with IHD prior to 8/31/10, his effective date should be one year prior to the date of his first claim on or after 8/31/10, but can be no earlier than 8/31/10. 

 

Examples:         Veteran diagnosed 2005. Files claim 3/15/11. ED should be 8/31/10

                        Veteran diagnosed 2005. Files claim 11/15/11. ED should be 11/15/10.

 

1.If the veteran was diagnosed with IHD on or after 8/31/10, the effective date is the date of claim.

 

Example:          Veteran diagnosed 9/15/10. Files claim 3/15/11. ED should be 3/15/11.

 

 

So, as long as the veteran you wrote about was diagnosed prior to 8/31/10, he should be entitled to an effective date of 8/31/10.  He should file an NOD with the effective date."

 

SO,AS LONG AS THE VETERAN YOU WROTE ABOUT WAS DIAGNOSED PRIOR TO 8/31/10 (AUGUST 31,2010) HE SHOULD BE ENTITLED TO AN EFFECTIVE DATE OF AUGUST 31,2010. HE SHOULD FILE A NOD WITH THE EFFECTIVE DATE.

This is from Rick Spataro Nehmer Attorney NVLSP
