Effective Date Of Claim For Increased Rating.


Guest jstacy

Question

Guest jstacy

In November 04 I went to the VA complaining of neck problems with turning the neck and pain as well as increased sensory disturbances. I filed a claim in March for an increase of C degenerative Joint and Degenerative Disk Disease. According to the C@P results I feel fairly confident this will be granted but I am a little confused as to the exact effective date. Would it be the date the entitlement arose or the date of VA examimination?

It should probably the date you filed the claim unless there is something in your file to show you complained or were examined for this problem before you file the claim.

It is already service conencted. The service connection depends opon limitation of motion for arthritis ( traumatic)

Service connection for lumba and cervical spine are separate ratings.

You should check into the accident and see if your neck problems are related. All you need is a MD opinion stating that is is at as least as likely not related to the accident.

It should probably the date you filed the claim unless there is something in your file to show you complained or were examined for this problem before you file the claim.

John about a year before I filed the claim I complained and got a MRI. The C@P examiner used the MRI As evidence.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    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.

    Examples:

    • 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.

    Note:

    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.
