    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 with only 8 pages attached- has anyone succeeded???


So once I understood what my lawyer friend said to look for on the evidence used in my case...I cut my documents from 63 pages to 8 attached. I don't disagree with the compensation I disagree with the recouping of SSB based on dates that don't match...my NOD! In the 8 pages attached I only focused on the dates that I have a service-connected disability and prove why the VA should not be recouping the SSB...I am getting the hang of less is more!

Well, yes.  Can you cut the 8 pages down to 2 pages?  Remember, your "case" needs to be simple enough for a sixth grader to understand.

The Award Letter Date is?

You indicate you don't disagree with the Decision itself, just a problem with  SSB Dates that don't match your Evidence, right?

Give some consideration to "Requesting an Official Review for CUE" regarding the Date's issue.

If you don't get the Dates issue resolved in less than 4 mos, file the NOD. What type of NOD were you considering, DRO or BVA? DRO Reviews 12+ mos for a Decision, DRO Hearings 3+ yrs for a Hearing Date, BVA 4+ yrs for the Hearing then another year for the Decision.           Semper Fi

I think I replied to you in another different thread. Yesterday

I dont know where that thread is.....

we all have time constraints here-all of us are unpaid volunteers and it helps us save time when vets keep the same thread going...for the same subject....

And without being able to read the actual words of VA, per the other post you made, I cant help anymore....you got good advice here today and in the other thread.

I spent probably 40 hours recently on an issue here....the poster would not attach anything at all regarding some denials from the VA.I finally got that situation resolved by contacting the head of the DAV in another state and also contacting the head of the Big 6 VBA coordinator to help straighten it all out.The poster here was not the legal claimant. The DAV might have dropped the ball. I reported one DAV NSO who Never answered his phone or answering machine when I called, because It involved numerous emails and phone calls to even find those entities, and I asked DAV how the heck a vet could even make an appointment with him if he never answers phone and never makes call backs. The situation was very serious but I decided not to get involved with DIC /accrued claims anymore here. Unless we can see some facts, as attachments.

A very difficult claim but nothing is impossible. 2 small children are the claimants and need someone in their behalf to file ( their mother). And there was a deadline last month.

    • 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:
