    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

  • 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

No, not to my knowledge. Once you are 100%, the only way I know to receive any additional funds, would be thru Special Monthly Compensation. There is also around $600 a year if your service connected disability(s) cause excessive wear or damage to your clothing. Others will probably chime in soon.

In short the direct answer to your question is you cannot get a onetime monetary award.

The longer answer would involve such things as an 1151 claim for malpractice, or a federal tort claims action.

SMC is the main method of compensation used by the VA for payment beyond the 100% rate.

The crazy one here

Yes, the answer to your question is yes.

After being rated 100% service connected a vet CAN receive a (one time) retro payment if he/she filed the claim prior to being awarded 100% or if the claim was deferred or on appeal. Either way the claim must have been claimed prior to the 100% rating and a retro payment is due.

Oftentimes VA will grant a veteran 100% and deffer some issues or a veteran would be granted 100% and have an appeal going on at the same time. Once the deffered issues/or the appeal is processed, if the date of claim is prior to the 100% rating and the new award is 10% or greater then the veteran is due a retro payment.

Hope this helps

Others may still chime in

P.S. Almost forgot about CUE claims, if a Cue claim is granted after a veteran is awarded 100% then the veteran is also due a retro payment.

Welcome aboard Albert!

The Purple heart... are they paying you for muscular damage, as well as scarring?

How long ago did uyou get the 100%?

Has anything gotten worse since then that could eventually put you into the SMC S category?

The greatest CUE claim I ever read was from a PH vet, with GSW.

VA said the wound was "thorugh and through" bullet went right in and right out and didnt want to pay him for either scarring or muscular damage.

He fixed them. It is precendent VA case law.

But maybe they did rate you right. ...???

Myler V Derwinski I might have posted it on the pre 2005 board here and will find it.

It inspired me to be able to succeed in CUE claims.
