    employment 2.jpeg

That would be great if it does come by then. If I were you I would start checking my direct deposit account soon.

This concerns me:

 "A review of your VA file notes you have been assigned a 100% eval for ptsd based on your exam dated [date]."

Why the exam date and not date of claim? You will know more when the award comes but it might not be much retro....and retro is always good if some of it is squared away for a potential IMO/IME, like for an eventual  P & T designation.

Great news anyhow! I probably asked you before but do you get SSDI and is it solely for the PTSD and/or SC disabilities?

Also, if you were unemployed when they gave their last award, did VA know that and if so, did they consider you for TDIU at that time?

The VA knows I was unemployed when they awarded me the last time and that my SSDI is based solely on PTSD. Shouldn't the back pay be dated to at least when I requested an increase from 70%?

 

edit: the exam date is a reference, i think,from a listed exam under evidence. I just didn't type it all out on here.

Something sure seems wrong.

"The VA knows I was unemployed when they awarded me the last time and that my SSDI is based solely on PTSD."

Can you scan and attach their reasons and bases and evidence here for that older decision?

If they knew you had SSDI solely for PTSD  and also they had an authorization form signed by you  to get those records, it is a CUE if they did not consider you for TDIU in the last decision.

(Cover C file name, address prior to scanning)

"Shouldn't the back pay be dated to at least when I requested an increase from 70%?"

I should certainly think so but the letter will tell you more.I hope you can scan the new award as to Reasons and Bases as well and attach here,too when that arrives.

It is the actual words of the VA in decisions, that often ends up biting them in the a--.

    • 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.
