    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

My Reason for asking

I had a Veteran ask me that.

He has never had a C&P Exam    but has filed a PTSD Claim and on his benny's  he said  that they have his status for Preparations for decision?

He never was mailed a letter letting him know of a C&P

so does this mean he maybe denied?  ...even though he never recieved his C&P letter

.when a veteran does not  get informed of a C&P.

AND in his ebenny's it says preparation for decision & if gets denied....wtf?

what can a veteran do in a case like that?

NOD the decison but its not the Veterans fault here   and it just adds more time for his claim to be Adjudicated.

Anybody?

I have seen several occasions where a veteran gets a decision without a C&P.  It is usually because they missed the appointment that this happens.  In this case he will be denied.  Did the veteran call and make sure that he did not somehow miss an appointment that they didn't know was scheduled?

The other possibility is if they were medically separated due to their PTSD and then the VA would use those exams to rate him and may not ask for additional information.

He was not notified of any C&P Exams or any other VA Exams

I mention to him that he needs to call the 1-800 # ask if he has been sent a letter for a C&P Exam and the dates for it. ASAP...

I haven't heard back yet

 he has sent in all the correct documentation medical records from STR'S and his strssors/Notes and VA Diagnoses of PTSD..DD 214 WITH CIB...it does look like he has the proper medical information  along with his diagnoses  that they could possible rate him without a C&P.

I may not be understanding him on this?   here is what he mention in PM

Buck,

''Hi.  I' m in receipt of a decision letter from VA dated 16 June 16.  Letter starts stating VA has made a decision in your case. First statement is in reference to CUE, stating in Dec 19, 2015 decision, VA made a mistake on the award date.  I NEVER received a decision notification letter last December.  How do I go about getting a copy of the decision letter?''

 

''I'm still waiting for a rating for Sleep apnea.  Board of appeals letter dated Oct 19. 2015 granted service connection for SA.  I still have not be service connected for SA.  Is this just a matter of time before it's awarded.  Ebenefits shows nothing relavent to SA. Very confusing.''

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
