    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

CUE, NOD or WAIT ???


Filed for TDIU was denied however VA sent me for C&P exams for Cervical, Lumbar, Migraines and Mental Health, I was told even though my my cervical, lumbar and Migraines should all be increased (will show below C&P exam statements) the examiner will NOT use those contentions on making his decision because they are all 3 in an appeal status (dated 2013 still waiting on appeal) so it screws me out of TDIU.

Question?? Even though those 3 are in appeal shouldn't he of raised the ratings according to the C&P exam results immediately? or does that too have to wait for the appeal to go through??  If these increases are given to me i would be at 100% scheduler.


Was rated at 30% cervical due to ROM's this recent C&P exam states (Unfavorable Ankylosis of the entire cervical spine, that should go to 40%)

Was rated at 40% Lumbar Thoracic do to ROM's this recent C&P exam states (Favorable Ankylosis of the entire thoracolumbar spine, that should go to 50%)

Was rated at 30% for Headaches including Migraines and this new C&P exam states (YES to having very prostrating and prolonged attacks of migraines/non-migraine pain of severe economic inadaptability this should be rated at 50%)

Need Advice Please!

You were denied TDIU but have 90%?

Were you employed when they denied TDIU?

Have you started a different thread here recently?

I think he  means the 3 disability's he has been  S.C. & rated for and if he gets them  increase to 50% 40% 40%  that will put him up to the 100% Unfortunately this is wrong  if this is his way of thinking.

In my calculations with VA Math  those rating combined is a rating of 82%  so it would be a combined rating of 80%

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading

    • 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
