  • 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

Administrative Review

Question

Hello everyone, I contacted my congressman last month because the Waco Tx, Regional Office refused to answer my question why the used dc 5260, limitation of flexion, to rate my bilateral knee condition when the doctors clearly stated under diagnostic code 5261, limitation of extension, extension was limited to 20 degrees which would give me a 30 percent rating for each knee. I looked in ebenefits today, it stated my claim was in administrative review and to not contact the 1800 number until I get a decision in the mail. My ebenefit account has not been updated since 2008 when I filed an appeal. I have been waiting all this time for a bva hearing, I even asked for a Regional Office hearing last year and have not gotten one. My question is since they stated on ebenefit not to call the 1800 number until I get the decision in the mail. I should be getting a decision soon. I cannot see how this can be denied since the doctor clearly stated limition of extension is limited to 20 degrees. Any thoughts about what I should be expecting. I know the VA can come up with some off the wall explaination, but I think I am ready for anything when dealing with the VA.

I know many people on this site are going through the same thing so hang in their.

Nanaeris.

Ask the VA to CUE themselves. Since the mistake is obvious maybe they will call CUE on themselves. You can't file a CUE claim on your own behalf because you claim is not final.

Read my post-the VA cued themselves, and that is how I finally got to 70%. I had to gently steer the VA in the right direct with the correct evidence.

Yeah, I know these VARO's fight the CUE concept. Asking the VA to CUE themselves is a techique Berta talked about to try and speed up correction of errors that are clear cut in a decision. I won a CUE when I got "S" but I never asked for a CUE. I just asked that the VA grant "S" and retro due to Bradley v Peake. The VA called the CUE.

I am in year 6 on the CUE I filed where VA just excluded my doctor's opinion and all positive evidence. Pretty obvious mistake but they don't think so.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
