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

    employment 2.jpeg

Granted. Remanded, Retro? Oh my!

Question

All I can do is laugh at this point. I suppose I am happy with the positive part, but the second half is being remanded to AMC.

The remanded appeal has been there since December 2015 (AMC), does anyone have any contact info for AMC? All I can find is a fax number. 

I am trying to find out where my retro pay is, new percentage change, and what's going on with the other half of my appeal.

Thanks all,

SF03

Sorry SF03.  I am at the AMC as well, and as far as I can tell, they don't give status reports.

Even my lawyer can't seem to penetrate their cover.  (beware the man behind curtain ;)

Mine has been their since 10/5/15 with no end in sight.

The Training letter that regards BVA partial grants is here somewhere.

If the claim goes on too much longer (I assume the BVA made an award) you can copy off the training letter and send it to them.

Then again the VA is slow as molasses... and in my opinion,  the AMC is comparable to the black hole. I had a fax # for them once, then I heard they put their fax machine into a closet.

Ahh that stinks. I was granted half of my appeal while the other half went back to AMC. I'm currently 70 SC'd and with the new "win" I am suppose to be 80%. I was notified in December 2015. At this point, no retro pay and no percentage change yet. Do I just keep waiting?

Secondly, the part then went to remand is for a date of service connection change. Haven't heard or seen any movement at all on this part. Waiting game...

sorry, it is a Fast Letter not a TL and here it is with this thread:

http://community.hadit.com/topic/64697-bva-and-retro-pay/#comment-393077

If 120 days have passed ( I think they have)  you could whip this out to them ( maybe by Fax)

Lol, the closet!? I actually believe it!

Yes, the BVA awarded me a partial win, which should change my sc'd from 70% to 80%. It's been about 5 months since my approval letter.

    • 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.
