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--.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
