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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

NOD Listed as NEW Claim in Eenefits

Question

All

A Notice of Disagreement was submitted for sciatica left and right extremities and about the same time a request for increase claim was submitted for low back condition.
 
The notice of disagreement (appeal) for left and right conditions have been showing as a new claim in the pending disability section of ebenefits. However, while they are indicated as NEW pending disability claims, they do not show up in the open claims section, 
 
Is it is normal for NODs to show up as NEW claims in the pending disability section on ebenefits!!!!
 
The request for increase was recently completed and there are no longer any open claims listed..
 
Any thoughts!

I recently filed a NOD, and it also showed up as a new claim as well.  I think it is their way of changing the effective date.

The NOD was filed within the 1 year limit, right? Don't sweat how its listed on E-Ben. As to effective dates for Retro purposes, you have your Receipt of Filing and all your Claims and Evidence received by the VA gets date stamped.

You would be better served concentrating on being absolutely certain, that all the New & Material Evidence available to support your Denied condition, is or will be shortly ; in the hands of the VA Rating Dept.

What does the Request for Increase address, do you have SC's rated as 0% presently? Your profile above, indicates no SC's.

Yes, I filed the NOD within the 1 year limit.

As for the request for increase, it addresses Intervertebral Disc Syndrome due to incapacitating episodes. I am currently rated 40% for 5 diagnosed back conditions, to include IVDS, based on range of motion.

I am requesting an increase based on more than six weeks of incapacitating episodes during the past twelve months and more. The doctors 12 months of prescriptions for these episodes were included as evidence. Since 2006, I have been receiving incapacitating episodes        prescriptions by my doctor because of the terrible pain associated with one of the multiple back condition. VA has al of these on file as well as the most recent.

Since filing my claim for increase, I have has additional incapacitating episodes prescribed by my doctor and have receive multiple shots for pain..

However, the claim for increase closed on 7 January and the AB8 letter did not change. I am not sure why. I am now waiting for the mailed decision.

In addition to the claim for IVDS increase, I also applied for TDIU.  All evidence to include DBQ, Doctor´s statement and employer 21-4192 were submit.

Based on previous post regarding AB8 letters being updated once the claim is closed, I am somewhat concerned, but not dismayed, because, if they have denied me, it would have to be for lack of reviewing the evidence.

Unfortunately, I would have to appeal to get it properly rated.  

 

Thank you..

If you really need something to worry about, then worry about what ebenefits says.  Its as unreliable as a drunken teenager working at McDonalds.

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
