Question

1st time post but been on here learning for a few years and want to say Thank You for all the info. Ok I received my BBE on March10,2016 from a NOD dated April 8 2005. I know eBenefits is at best very inaccurate. All of the ratings are SC. In 2005 I was rated 20%, 2008 went to 40%, 2009 went to 50%. My new award was 40% Hearing  &  10% Tinnitus  that brought me to 70%. Also on the award letter there is a cue that the VA made a error on not paying me retro from the NOD on the rating in 2008 back to 2005. My Question is like everyone else "Where Is The Money" I have not received my monthly check with the increase to 70% on it or my Retro that is quite a bit of money What is the time frame on getting the pay straight. I hope I posted in the right forum like I said nrwbe any response would be appreciated.

SInce they made a CUE that might be what is holding up the cash.I assume they did not mention the retro amount yet in the award letter?

VA made a CUE in one of my claims. When they paid me, it was still 11 thousand short ( 40 thousand Buck CUE)

I sent them my own mathematic calculations and they fixed it fast, but my point is, when they do send you the cash, make sure you check it out well because they make many math errors too.

Well all it took is to post on here and POFF the retro was in my account 2:28 AM I had already figured out how much I should be getting and the amount was $573 more than I had figured 69,881. Little weight of my shoulders. I have a CUE in for my cancer that is Agent Orange Presumption it is on the Nehmer ruling been reading a lot on it doesn't look like they are giving the benefit to the Veterans on it as the were when it first was decided.

I had Liposarcoma cancer in 2001 & reoccurred in 2004. At the time I did not know it was on the Agent Orange list. My Primary doctor was on vacation and I had to see another one for my appointment. She was looking through my files and made a statement that she never heard of my cancer. I ask if she was a doctor she answered yes. She said she was going to do some research and she would get back with me. 2 days later she called and said that it is a very aggressive rare soft tissue cancer that doesn't react well to chemo or radiation and stated it was on the Agent Orange List. So as soon as I heard that I set up my Agent Orange Appointments. Well my cancer was in remission when I applied for disability so they ended up giving me 30%. Soft Tissue Cancer was the first Presumed Agent Orange disability and the date was in 1995. So i have had my CUE in for 2 years and sitting back waiting to see their decision and my next course of action. But I figure it's a shot. If I get it it would be great to get 10 years retro @ 30%. This is it not going for anything else getting too old to for the stress. Good luck to every one don't be like me and quit they owe to every one of you.

If they had denied a formal claim for the liposarcoma in the past, and rated it with a % as NSC on the past rating sheet, and it was at least at a 10% rating at that time, that would be basis for CUE. 

On a 1998 rating sheet they failed to mention, rate or put any  % for my husband's IHD from AO.

It was not a presumptive then but was clearly a Section 1151 issue because the page before the rating sheet admitted their 6 years of malpractice on his heart disease, stroke, etc etc....

I filed CUE in 2004 on that (Buffalo VARO)and they awarded in 2012.( Nehmer Phila. VARO)

I rasied the point that , although the CUE was finally set for BVA transfer, but not sent to BVA yet, the proper CUE claim resolve was needed as it impinged on a proper AO IHD award.

It took Phila RO about 3 weeks to resolve and award the CUE ( I filed 3 separate CUES on the 1998 decision ) and they all got resolved by Phila Nehmer.

When did they initially deny for the STS cancer?

    • 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.
