Hello everyone, Quick update. I checked ebenefits last night and saw that I was awarded 70% for my disability. I am extremely happy that the process went extremely smooth. I would like to thank a

To me the C&P was a bit too positive, and the RO may use a final statement in it to schedule an additional C&P or so.

I suppose a great deal depends upon what is currently "in favor" at the VARO.

Single issue, make it happen, take the credit, or develop further in detail for a VARO "favored" rating.

  Hey Chuck,

Thanks for the response. In regards to the results of the C&P, what do you mean by "to positive"? I also didn't understand the last sentence of your statement. I look forward to your reply. Thanks.

Usually, a PTSD C&P does not have as many positive markers. In addition, reserve service is involved/noted, and that can make the RO's a bit suspicious.

A maybe sort of example - - - One of my claims involves a back injury under awarded combat conditions. Little evidence exists in my service records.

The BVA judge directed the RO to obtain my post active duty records for any additional evidence. The Navy reserves physicals for those on inactive duty were a joke, and unless a really disabling condition existed, were almost always fit for service. 

Just to add injury, the language in title 38 is extremely favorable to this type of claim, and the VA often tries to weasel out of the situation by trying to create negative evidence.

Chuck, 

So you think there's a chance my claim might be denied because it's too good? Judging by the symptoms, it looks like 100% disability according to the Doctor that posted a few hours ago.

    • 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,
