    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

Remanded Appeal after Video Conference

Question

So I checked Ebenefits yesterday and the status of my appeal was changed from "Pending Dispatch"  to "Remanded Appeal". The statement in Ebenefits says "Your appeal has been sent back for further development by the Board to the Appeals Management Center or to the office that made the original decision on your case." If you have any experience/knowledge at this stage of the process, would you mind sharing?

Thanks in advance....

Yo FIZZ, what happened with the BVA Video Hearing? I never had one, how about a blow by blow run down of yours?

I see that back in 05/15, you were considering jumping ship, regarding your VSO. How'd that workout for you? What does your same/new VSO Hearing Rep have to say?

If possible, could you post redacted copies of you VA Awards/Denials and the BVA Remand? How about a time-line, also?

If you haven't yet, set your Direct Deposit Bank/CU Account to Txt/Email you immediately regarding all financial transactions. VA Retro generally hits your Bank Account about 3 - 4 weeks before the actual Award Letter arrives.

My E-Ben site listed an increase from a mid 12/15 Quality Control Review of a 07/15 Decision, 01/03/16. Retro hit mid 01/16 and Award Letter arrived mid 04/16. That's 6 for 6 Retro Deposits or Checks, hitting 3+ weeks before the Award Letters arrived, over the past 8 yrs.

Hi Gastone. The BVA Video Hearing was rather straight forward. My request for a hearing was submitted in October of 2015 and about 3 to 4 months later I received a video conference court date to appear in April. We reviewed the claim along with my VSO present and spoke of my condition. I didn't know what to expect because of some of the stories I heard, but the judge was nice and seemed to understood my point of view as it pertained to the claim. It was about a 20 minute session to freely state your claim. I would recommend one if you have a claim to appeal.

I decided not to jump ship on the VSO and stuck through it.

I did receive the BVA letter from the remand over the weekend (6/25), but the online version is not yet available for me to copy it over.

My sleep apnea claim was decided as a complete grant, and the rest were remanded for another exam... although I have to wait, I am somewhat glad since I wasn't completely denied. Since I just got the BVA letter, I am not sure where the process goes from there.

I will have to search my timelines to provide the whole process later.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
