  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

  • 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

BVA Awaiting Place on the Docket

Question

Greetings

I just checked eBenefits on the status of my BVA claims and it said, "Awaiting Place on the Docket."  Does this mean that the DAV has reviewed and written statements to support my Remanded Claims (Docket 11-12-911)?

Best Regards

Chiefhouse

You mean a 646 form? Possibly....

Are you on Remand and is this your BVA case?

If so did the VA follow all that the remand called for and were the C & P exams favorable?

Greetings

This is my remanded case and no additional C&P examines have been requested.  Ebenefits show that by case is now in line to be reviewed by a BVA Judge. I'm I reading this correctly or not? 

Best Regards

That is a long remand, I honed in on one part of it...others hopefully will chime in on the other disabilities:

"Regarding the stroke and seizure disability, the Board notes that although the June 2011 and August 2013 examiners provided opinions and rationales regarding whether the Veteran's stroke and seizure disability was due to his hepatitis C, they provided no opinions regarding whether the Veteran's stroke and seizure disability was aggravated by his hepatitis C, nor did they provide opinions regarding whether the Veteran's stroke and seizure disability was due to or aggravated by his diabetes mellitus type II.  38 C.F.R. § 3.310; Allen, 7 Vet. App. 439.  Therefore, the claims file should be returned to the August 2013 examiner, if available, in order to obtain an opinion regarding whether the Veteran's stroke and seizure disability has been aggravated (permanently worsened beyond normal progress of the disorder) by his service-connected hepatitis C, or whether the Veteran's stroke and seizure disability is due to or aggravated (permanently worsened beyond normal progress of the disorder) by his service-connected diabetes mellitus type II.  See McLendon v. Nicholson, 20 Vet. App. 79 (2006)."              

I can assure you that the stroke was probably 'more than likely" due to your DMII.

DMII can cause cholestrol problems to the extent that the arteries become clogged with plaque and then can form clots and can go to the brain ( TIAs and then irreversible brain disease- meaning stroke.)

One of my claims was about that connection.They awarded 100% P & T under 1151 however, so I did not have to prove the DMII caused the stroke. But,if they get a favorable OGC opinion on my pending claim, I will file a new claim for direct SC for the stroke.

Whether the Hep C or even the DMII ( the BVA fully knows what I know about DMII and gave you a clue here as they gave me once long ago in a decision) I hope you have considered getting an IMO/IME to combat what might again be, a C & P exam that will not help you at all.

When vets are on remand, they have plenty of time to follow the remand themselves and get additional evidence.Strokes happen for many reasons...... but DMII can be a main factor for stroke,IHD, HBP , etc etc and I know that there are very few awards at the BVA for SC strokes....because the vets did not have a real doctor opine on their medical records.

(by real doctor-I mean a Neurologist not some PA or nurse)

Greetings Berta

Thank you calmly for looking into this and your sound advice on how to move ahead with this case.  My head is pounding (tension headache) and I'm taking a ton of meds for everything under the sun.  I kinda get lost at times trying to understand and pursue my BVA and NOD cases but I intend to hold on as long as I can to be successful.  Again, thank you and everyone who have taken time to assist me.  Have a great day.

 

Best Regards

Chiefhouse

    • Everything Veterans Affairs does with your service connected disability compensation claim, is governed by law. You may want to bookmark this page as a reference as you proceed with your claim.

      It can be a bit daunting. Just remember the U.S.C. is the law, the C.F.R. is how they interpret the law and last but certainly not least is the V.A. adjudication manuals that is how they apply the law. The section of the law that covers the veterans benefits is Title 38 in the U.S.C. in the C.F.R. is usually written 38 C.F.R. or something similar.

      It's helpful to understand how statutes, regulations, and VA directives such as the VA’s Adjudication Procedures Manual, the M21-1MR (Manual M21-1MR.) are related. Of these three sources of law, the statute, written by Congress, is the highest form. The statute that governs veterans’ benefits is found in Title 38 of the United States Code (U.S.C.). The VA writes regulations to carry out the laws written by Congress; these are found in Title 38 of the Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.). The VA’s internal instructions for adjudicating claims are contained in the Manual M21-1MR. VA regulations may not conflict with any statute; the manual’s provisions may not conflict with either statute or regulations. If they do, the Court has the power to invalidate them.

    • I was unable to find a reply box to your post.

      We have a full Agent Orange forum here.

      Many veterans (and even their survivors) have succeeded in getting a disability, not on the presumptive list, service connected due to their proven exposure to AO.

      Also Secretary Wilkie is considering a few new presumptives, but we have no idea if  he will even add any to the list.

      I wrote to him making a strong argument, as  to the potential for HBP to be added, as well as ischemic stroke and have prepared a personal claim based on the same report a veteran used at the BVA, who also had a strong IMO/IME, and the BVA recently granted his HBP as due to his exposure to AO in Vietnam.

      Most veterans with HBP were deemed as having "essential" - a medical term for no know cause- now we have a cause in Vietnam veterans---AO caused it.

       

      The report is here:

      https://www.nap.edu/read/25137/chapter/2

      On page 8 they found there is "Sufficient" evidence that AO caused HBP in Vietnam veterans.

      The BVA case and this report is also searchable in our AO forum.

    • I just received a deposit to my checking account. The description says VALG TREAS 310 TYPE: XXVA.
      I'm not sure who to ask about this deposit. I am concerned because I was not notified I would be receiving it.
      I retired from the Marines in 1997 with 10% disability. I've been receiving a separate disability payment from my regular retirement pay. This deposit is completely unexpected. thank you for any insight.
