Received DAV letter of award


Navy4life

Question

So I received the DAV "official" letter last night in the mail ATTACHED.  I am curious as to why the 100% temporary evaluation is June 3rd, 2015 to October 1, 2015????

Look at numbers 2 & 3.  I also got SMC housebound for the same dates.  What is puzzling me is I had my surgery to my right foot January 6th, 2016.  I know my right foot is not yet S/C as it is under appeal but I was granted the 100% temporary evaluation for my left ankle b/c it caused my fracture to my right foot.  Any idea why they went back to 2015???? The dates they awarded me the 100% temporary evaluation, does that mean I am getting 4 months at 100%?

#7 and you will see the wording "not shown" for right foot.  I am very happy they gave me the 100% temporary evaluation but puzzled about the dates.   

#5 - My left ankle stayed at 10% but they added additional contentions to it. Will I also get a re-evaluation for my left ankle you think?

Will I get the back for the increase from 60% to 70% with my temporary 100% for the four months?

I am still waiting for the BBE to come in the mail.

Your DAV letters are only a summary. Wait for the actual award letter. The statements and basis of the case usually will list all contentions and the award, and what was used/how it was determined.

Looks to me like the dates are wrong, wait until you get the official letter and check the dates.

if they are the same   call your RO and let them know and get a confirmation    not just by phone but ask them to send you a correction on it in the mail.   don't trust them over the phone

usually they pay the difference in the compassionate  from the date you filed to the next month April  or if its not to much they will just pay a lump sum to catch you up and after that you will get the correct Temp Conv  Pay  for the 4 months & then the correct pay for your increase is added each month after.

you might ask about the delay? April & May?

      Is there a specific order for documents, VA Forms, etc when you assemble a Fully Developed Claim, FDC?

      Hi Board,

      US Army vet needs advice on nudging NPRC and VA to acknowledge where my service records are and move my Tinnitus claim forward to a decision.

      By way of background info, I filed an online claim with the VA on 1 Dec 2020. I tracked the progress online and noticed it was stuck on evidence gathering for several months. I then requested (online) for the VA to make a decision, since I had no further evidence to submit. I attended a C&P exam on May 21, but my claim remained stuck on "Evidence Gathering."

      I reached out to my congressman and both senators; one senator ignored me but the other senator and my congressman promptly replied around 20 Jun 2020 (OK, a staffer  ) The VA says they requested my records around 28 Dec 2020 and 15 Mar 2021- and were still waiting. The National Public Records Center says my records were sent to the VA on 21 May 2021 and are no longer in their custody. 

      During July, I have called the VA twice and was told they are still waiting for my records from the NPRC. 

      Any advice on how to proceed? I'm stuck in limbo between two government agencies that are not taking responsibility and I have yet to find a decision maker that can move my claim towards a decision.

      Thanks in advance!

      Hi,
      I try to keep it short and hopefully make sense.
      2011 Aug - Got out did Pre discharge Disability Claim with VSO on base before I went on final leave.
      2011 December - VA Examination, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, I dont have a copy of this exam only the one from 2013.
      2013 June - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome DBQ
      This Dr. typed in section #1 Diagnosis;
      If there are additional diagnoses that pertain to chronic fatigue syndrome, list using above format: The veteran was misdiagnosed in May 2011. He does not and he never did have chronic fatigue syndrome.
      in section #2 Medical History:
      a. Describe the history (including onset and course) of the veteran chronic fatigue syndrome: Veteran was tired and sleepy for a couple of weeks and was fine one month later. Asymptomatic at this time.
      2013 Aug - Rating Decision from the 2011 claim it took 2yrs to complete.
      in this rating Decision there is no mention of the DBQ for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in the denial area and there are no deferred claims. There are 9 claims some granted and denied but nothing about the Chronic fatigue.
      They only mention the Chronic Fatigue DBQ in the All evidence considered section:
      2017 - VA Neurologist put on the comments for my Primary Care Dr.
      For Fatigue please consider sleep study
      2021 - Was diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea by private Sleep Doctor
      2021 - I got a Rating Code sheet and there no mention of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

      When I filled the Pre discharge Disability I dont recall we talked about Fatigue syndrome so I am pretty sure it was not part of the claim, but somehow the VA ordered a DBQ for it maybe because it was within the 1yr mark since I got out that I was diagnoses with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
       
      Would this be considered some type of Duty to assist error? as the C&P Doctor said I was misdiagnosed but then the VA did not order a sleep study to figure out my fatigue back then.
       
      So all this time I been having low energy levels / fatigue / sleepiness due to the Sleep Apnea since I got out but I was misdiagnosed and not given a sleep study. Heck even my primary care Doctor failed to follow the Neurologist suggestion to order me a Sleep study.

      What are the chances that the VA would grant Sleep Apnea back to 2011 since I dont recall claiming it but again somehow they did a DBQ for the fatigue issue.
       
      Thanks.

      I asked my shrink to write a letter in support of my claim and he said that VA policy is that he can't do that. Is this true? Any way around this?
       
      Thanks.

      hello
      I first applied for SC status Mar 1, 2010. 
      I was awarded 70% SC on Feb 18, 2011.
      Does my 10 years start running from date of application in 2010 or the date of the decision/award in 2011?
      thanks for any help

    • I already get compensation for bladder cancer for Camp Lejeune Water issue, now that it is added to Agent Orange does it mean that the VA should pay me the difference between Camp Lejeune and 1992 when I retired from the Marine Corps or do I have to re-apply for it for Agent Orange, or will the VA look at at current cases already receiving bladder cancer compensation. I’m considered 100% Disabled Permanently

      The 5, 10, 20 year rules...



      Five Year Rule) If you have had the same rating for five or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless your condition has improved on a sustained basis. All the medical evidence, not just the reexamination report, must support the conclusion that your improvement is more than temporary.



      Ten Year Rule) The 10 year rule is after 10 years, the service connection is protected from being dropped.



      Twenty Year Rule) If your disability has been continuously rated at or above a certain rating level for 20 or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless it finds the rating was based on fraud. This is a very high standard and it's unlikely the rating would get reduced.



      If you are 100% for 20 years (Either 100% schedular or 100% TDIU - Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability or IU), you are automatically Permanent & Total (P&T). And, that after 20 years the total disability (100% or IU) is protected from reduction for the remainder of the person's life. "M-21-1-IX.ii.2.1.j. When a P&T Disability Exists"



      At 55, P&T (Permanent & Total) or a few other reasons the VBA will not initiate a review. Here is the graphic below for that. However if the Veteran files a new compensation claim or files for an increase, then it is YOU that initiated to possible review.



      NOTE: Until a percentage is in place for 10 years, the service connection can be removed. After that, the service connection is protected.



      ------



      Example for 2020 using the same disability rating



      1998 - Initially Service Connected @ 10%



      RESULT: Service Connection Protected in 2008



      RESULT: 10% Protected from reduction in 2018 (20 years)



      2020 - Service Connection Increased @ 30%



      RESULT: 30% is Protected from reduction in 2040 (20 years)

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • 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,
