The VA uses a 'combined rating' for your overall percentage. As your combined rating goes higher, it becomes more difficult to increase with smaller ratings.

However, because you are now SC for hearing loss, they now provide treatment for it without any co-pays. If the VA treated you for hearing loss since you originally filed the claim on 9/13/13 -and- charged you any co-pays, you can get with the VAMC business office and request reimbursement of those fees. If you are due any refunds, it could take a couple of months.

Question if I'm already a 100 percent and enter a new secondary claim for a new problem will the C and P reviewer re examine my other things and is it possible to put my other percentages at risk by filing when I'm already a 100 percent. In other words can they knock stuff down.

I was denied back in 1998 by the VA for hearing loss/ Tinnitus.

Then I was denied again in 2009.

Well this time July 24th, 2014, I just got my letter and they awarded me Tinnitus 10% and % 0 Percent Right ear hearing Loss. In their statement it said " April 16th, 1998 the previous decision was clearly and unmistakably erroneous, service connection is established for tinnitus"

My question is how do I ask for back pay to either 2009 or 1998?

Since it was a CUE based on an error made in the 1998 decision, I believe you will get retro back to 1998 but I am not an expert. I am sure others on this site will let you know for sure.

  • 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.

  • 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
