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--.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      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

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you
