  • 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

Big Question On A Cue

Question

I just back from my VSO, I was with him for about 11/2 hours. We found several mistakes the VA has made over the passed several years. UPDATE: in 1984 I was denied SC for hearing loss and tinitus, they just sent me the letter saying I was denied. I being young and dumb at the time said the hell with it. In 2009 I asked that my claim be reopen and it was. I had to jump thru the loops to prove my nexus. MY SMR shows I had slight hearing loss when I went into the service and that was the reason I was denied. I also was never given a C&P, I have documentation from memos from inside the VA to cancell my C&P. I have filed a cue and NOD 2-3 times. still they are said it was preexisting. But the kicker, they grated me my SC based on the that it was agaggravated due to my time in service. My ETS physical shows that my hearing was pencil in showing all "0" (better than super man) in all areas. So I have my SMR show slight hearing going in and granted SC for aggravation and exiting the service showing I have great hearing .My VSO said I might want to send this thru one of my SENATORS OR REPRESENTATIVES, however he warned me that the VA might retaliate and not grant me my TDIU if I show how wrong and flawed the were, and EMbarrassed them in A congressional investigation.. BTW one of my senator in on the veteran affairs board. So my question is, and I only asking for opinions here, should I file this with my senator that sits on the VA board or just hope I can get TDUI. I know the back pay would be large, vs. THE MONTHY CHECK of 100%. I know it all would be nice, and the money is seconary right now, I just want justis.

Thanks,

Hollis

Get TDIU and then go after retro and filing a CUE.

Stick with you IU claim for now.

You may or may not have a CUE, keep in mind that CUE's

apply to the law's and regs in effect at the time the CUE was or

was not made.

Also, you posted this possible CUE was made on a Rating Decision (RD)

in 1984, for Hearing Loss and Tinnitus.

Are you aware that a CUE has to be worded and filed with specificity

and very clearly.

Also, absolutely no medical evidence or that is dated after the 1984

can be considered in a CUE, only the evidence and laws at the time

the CUE was made.

Ok I will hold off for now. I have a year to file NOD. But I think the AO and TDIU will come way after that , so that would make it moot. But there is no gurantee that I will get TDIU and then the appeal date would have passed. But as alwys, I put my trust in here as there are some very smart veterans here. thanks

."My VSO said I might want to send this thru one of my SENATORS OR
REPRESENTATIVES, however he warned me that the VA might retaliate and
not grant me my TDIU if I show how wrong and flawed the were,
and EMbarrassed them in A congressional investigation.. "

It is EVIDENCE that makes claims succeed.

I have been an outspoken critic of the VA for almost 20 years. One case I had took 6 years and the other one took 8 years.

It wasnt a question of evidence so maybe they did retaliate against me...I dont care..... I got the Cash anyhow.

"BTW one of my
senator in on the veteran affairs board. So my question is, and I only
asking for opinions here, should I file this with my senator that sits
on the VA board or just hope I can get TDUI. I know the back pay would

You applied for TDIU. When you got the 70% VA determined in tat decision that you were not eligible for TDIU.

If you have evidence that overcomes their rationale at that time of TDIU, you will succeed in your TDIU claim.

I knew Bob Filner when he was Chair of the H VAC because I talked to him many times via old SVR radio shows I did with Jerrel Cook.

I wrote to him of an error the VA was continually making on my claim and asked what I could do.

The CHairman of the BVA wrote back to me.

Basically the error was noted by the BVA but they awarded anyhow.

The award I got had nothing to do with H VAC CHairman Filner's letter to the BVA.

The award came from my probative evidence.

Congressman/women and Senators cannot make a claim succeed. only evidence does that.

I love CUE claims but dont get your point.

A CUE has to have a manifested altered outcome, meaning they rated you wrong when they gave you a Zero SC %.

Carlie gave you the exact nitty gritty.

John is right too!~

Sorry Hollis I forgot........What is your AO claim for?

Is it a Nehmer claim under the 3 new presumptives?

Morning Berta, my CUE is on my hearing. I filed for a claim on my hearing back in 84. I was never given a C&P, I was just denied. But since I have gotten my SMR, I have found things to support my CUE. My AO is on IHD CAD, and with that I filed for TDIU. I know you are very knowledgeable in this area, and I trust your thoughts and suggestions. Man I would love fo you to look over this for me.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
