  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

Backpay and Monthly Comp After BVA Grant

Question

My husband, also a Vet, recently had a BVA appeal for increased major depressive disorder and TDIU. The BVA granted the MDD increase to 70% from the initial rating through the entire rating period and remanded the TDIU back to the RO for consideration with the new MDD rating.

This increase to 70% for his MDD now puts him at 100% total rating and will be getting backpay to 2009. We know that it can take forever for the backpay to process, especially considering how large of a sum it will be so while we're hoping for it to be on the shorter side of time, we are not holding our breath.

Our question is this: could he start getting his increased monthly comp amount before the backpay hits or do they always process both at the same time so we'll likely either see the backpay first or at the same time?

 

Thanks!

As long as it works, it's all good. When I ran the #'s, I got 95.3344 rounded to 100% SC.

That being the case, now comes the question of not only IU but also T & P for both his Scheduler & IU claim. Age, Education and employment history all play an important part as well as the possibility of Improvement in any of his IU qualifying conditions. If he's under 55, any SC Condition MH or Physical, a Vet can expect a Diary Dated Future C&P Exam usually at 18-24 or 36 month intervals up to and just before hitting 55.

Well, no pay increase today. :( But, we did call the VA to ask what the system is saying and it went from "processing" the last time we called to "being finalized for notification" so I'm going to just pretend that means something is happening on it. Ha!

Not to be a downer, but my ebenefits has been saying "preparation for decision" for going on a couple months now. I have no reason to believe it'll change for at least the next 6 months.

 Try to find something to occupy your time. You'll drive yourself nuts with waiting and burning holes in the computer screen. It'll come!
