I think this was a good move on VA's part and it might resolve your issues.

"Under section 4.16(b) of VA regulations, when a claimant is

unable to secure and follow a substantially gainful

occupation by reason of service-connected disabilities, but

fails to meet the percentage requirements for eligibility for

a total rating set forth in 38 C.F.R. § 4.16(a), the RO may

submit such case to the Director, Compensation and Pension

Service, for assignment of an extraschedular evaluation

commensurate with the average earning capacity impairment.

38 C.F.R. §§ 4.16(b), 3.321(b)(1). The criterion for such an

award is a finding that the case presents an exceptional or

unusual disability picture with related factors as marked

interference with employment or frequent periods of

hospitalization as to render impractical application of

regular schedular standards. The Court has held that the

Board is precluded by regulation from assigning an

extraschedular rating under 38 C.F.R. § 3.321(b)(1) in the

first instance; however, the Board is not precluded from

raising this question, and in fact is obligated to liberally

read all documents and oral testimony of record and identify

all potential theories of entitlement to a benefit under the

law and regulations." Floyd v. Brown, 9 Vet. App. 88 (1996 ).

There isn't much you can do at this point but wait for the results of this extraschedular review.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

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

    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
