  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

NOD Submitted, Inc ordered?

Question

Good Morning!

My husband submitted his NOD at the end of August.  He got called on Fri for a Increase appt for his rated condition.  This was one of the conditions we appealed.  He was granted an increase on that day effective for 10/28/2016.

The rest of the conditions are set to REP (not sure what that means).

Since he appealed the rating on the one condition and an increase was granted, shouldn't he get back pay to the original date?

Also, how does the REP status work?  4 of the conditions he did the NOD for were stated to not be service connected.  When we finally got his SMR, I found where they were contained in his records.  

I am afraid that we will not get the date of disability back to his original filing date.

Any information is appreciated.

 "When we finally got his SMR, I found where they were contained in his records.   "

Did he make that point in the NOD and even refer to in the NOD and attach copies of the pertinent SMRs?

"Since he appealed the rating on the one condition and an increase was granted, shouldn't he get back pay to the original date?"

It usually should be the EED ( date of claim) but the actual letter from VA will tell you more.

I assume REP is a ebenefits acronym..someone here will know what that means...

Is it possible that ,with the SMRs that had the apparent nexus, the RO is reviewing the other disabilities too

but so hard to know,.....ebenefits can be confusing.

Do you mean he got a call on Friday for a C & P exam? and ,whoever called .said one of the claims had been granted? or does ebenefits show SC rating for it now.

No, because the VA didnt send him his records until 2 weeks after the NOD was due.  He did say that they should be in his medical records, which base, etc but we did not have the actual records to say where or attach.

Thanks. We will be patient. It is hard but we will wait to get the actual letter. Our VA Rep is who told us about the increased award.

He got a call on Friday for another C&P exam in 2 hours. He went and did the exam that day.   On Monday, his VSO emailed to let him know that his increased had been awarded and the effective date of 10/28/15.  ebenefits has not been updated to show increased SC rating or anything else. Last time, it took a few days from the VSO to ebenefits being updated.

Thanks Berta! You are a wealth of info!!

REP stands for reopen.  Reopening a claim with new and material evidence.

    • 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

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
