  • 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

Submitting New Evidence For Appeal (DRO Review)

Question

Does anyone know if there is a way to submit new evidence via eBenefits for a pending appeal?  I appealed a denial for increase in lumbar spine (rated 10%).  I went to a pain management center for evaluation and epidural.  They did a physical examination and the report says in part "The patient forward flexes 30 degrees, extends -5 degrees.  He is unable to right or left side bend."

If I can't submit it via eBenefits, how should I submit it?  I have a newly submitted claim that is hopefully a FDC but if I send the new medical report to the evidence intake center won't that make the pending claim a standard claim?  Sorry for all the questions but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to do this.  The VSO is not a good option since he is 150 miles away and the only way to contact him is to call and IF he is in the office the receptionist will leave a message, if not, call back.  I could drive the 150 miles and hope he's in so I can wait several hours to see him.

As far as I know, no you cannot submit evidence for NOD via EBenefits.  I have a NOD filed as well, and I fax AND mail evidence to the intake center.

or Fax to:

Thanks DevilDog, when you send new documents do you specify what they are for or do they just go to your c-file?  The physical examination I just had has information pertinent to two NODs and an open claim.

I always attached a cover letter asking them to accept the enclosed materials as evidence for my current NOD.  My VSO has confirmed that these materials were accepted and attached as evidence for NOD.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
