  • 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 a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

      Thank you

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
