Proposed Change In Rating


Please, we need your help. All of this is VA business new to us. The VA is proposing to change my husband overall rating from 100% to 90% by reducing his TBI rating from 70% to 10%. What do we do? I am speaking on my husbands behalf because he is unable to do so. I hope that is ok.

Thank you! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What is the date of the letter that proposes to reduce?

I believe it will say you have 60 days to respond and it is best to ask for a Hearing on the proposed reduction,within those 60 days.

Can you scan and attach the Reasons and Bases part of this decision?

Cover name,.address and C file before you scan it.....

There are many reasons VA can proposed a reduction.

From 70% to 10% is a big reduction.

We can advise you better if we can read VA's actual words in the decision.

I have a question as to the rating

"The VA is proposing to change my husband overall rating from 100% to 90% by reducing his TBI rating from 70% to 10%"

What is the 100% for?

Was the 70% TBI rating in addition to 100% for something else?

If so, was he getting Special Monthly compensation for 100% plus 60% ?

Sorry but I dont get the math here........

I believe you only have 30 days (it may be only 21 days), from the date of your letter, to request a hearing and failure to do so will result in the reduction taking place as scheduled. Having the hearing can stop or delay the reduction taking place as scheduled. A hearing is probably your only way to stop this, without losing a yrs benefits while you fight to regain his 100%.

Yep 30 days to respond to have the hearing. Then usually around the 60 mark you will have a hearing.

    • 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.
