    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 NOD/New Material Evidence

Question

Good morning. I am submitting my NOD this week for denied contentions (denied April 14th) that fall under the CFR as presumptive conditions that were denied (cancer, kidney stones and arthritis).

The reason for denial was "there is no evidence that the condition occurred in service or during the presumptive period after service". I had received a letter in September ( I believe it was for a 5103 response) stating the documents we have received and in the listed documents was "DD 214 dated 15 January 2015". So I figured I was covered under the presumptives and that they got it from the ARPC.Well they did not. In fact when I separated from active duty, even though I completed the DD 214 worksheet and submitted it and it was never done.

The ARPC will have the new DD 214 completed tomorrow. I am submitting the DD 214 with my NOD as new evidence and for the contentions and I am attaching a letter explaining why I am appealing the decision referencing the DD 214 shows that these conditions are covered under the presumptive guidelines in the CFR.

 

I am also going to request a DRO review (de novo?). Am I on the right track with this NOD? Also I am not in favor of a reconsideration due to the fact that there is a high probability of losing my EED.

Thank you all for your help.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
