    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

Cue Submitted For Clerical Error?

Question

Guys, I received my determination letter and discovered that on the summary page, my lumbar artitis was rated at 0%. But in the Reason section of the letter, it clearly awarded me 10% for my arthritis. This may change my overall rating, but having a clerical error go to a judge 4-5 years down the road is a bit rediculous. Should I have done something different?

If it's just a simple error like that, you can write a letter stating what the error is to the Veterans Service Center Manager and they can correct it, usually within 30 days. Be sure to list the "reply to number/initials" in your letter.

Philip is right.... as long as the award letter fully confirms the increase under Reasons and Basis and that you expect some retro.

This should not be a big deal to VA. They often make many more horrendous errors then that one.

Did the same thing to me in December. The DAV rep who was helping me walked my paperwork through and my thyroid condition went from 10%-100% and I had payment in a couple weeks. Sorry that you're having to deal with the CUE on top of this "normally" frustrating process. Good luck to you.

This is not really a CUE at this time.

The VA made errors and I never did get them to straighten some of them out. For example errors in dependents. Its been 4 years.

    • 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.
