    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

What do you think of this?


I currently have a case at BVA and was looking at my records and discovered that I asked for CUE from the Board.  It is on the third page of this document.  My memory is so bad that I forgot I did this when my case went to BVA.  Anybody have any idea if this would even hold up?

Just, after you click on his Document, look at the bottom of the page, it asks what you want to do, click on open.

VQ, you're 90% with a PTSD SC (%?) in the mix, have you had an "Inferred IU" from your last Award Denied?

If you were to win at the BVA, have you estimated your Retro? Who is reping you at the BVA? Might be time to get a free Legal consult from a local VA Attorney.

Could you post redacted copies of your PTSD C & P DBQ and Award/Denial Letters?

To all, thanks for being interested.  The BVA just awarded UI to the date I lost my job and service connected my neuropathy.  As far as the rest of the claim (for increase) it was remanded a second time for failure to comply with the board's previous instructions.  I did have a lawyer and I believe it helped.

Do you have a copy of their denial on the 1986 claim?

I liked the way you used the phrase "well grounded" as to the evidence the VA had then.

I would have used 38 CFR 4.6 myself but it seems you sure did some CAVC /COVA homework!

Yippee for you!

You did very well on the award from the BVA and a remand is always a good thing in my opinion.

 "as far as the rest of the claim (for increase) it was remanded a second time for failure to comply with the board's previous instructions.  I did have a lawyer and I believe it helped."

Can you give us the docket number? Then again it might not have been posted yet at the BVA web site.

Was the CUE issue mentioned at all by BVA in the remand?

Unfortunately CUE claims do not warrant a VCAA aka  5103 waiver-because VA will not extend Duty to Assist to us 'CUerinos'. They do not want to assist us to prove their errors.

"all records but one page were lost"- Did BVA make comment on that?

Are you seeking a higher rating regarding the basilar migraines?

It is 99% of the time, it is  the actual decision a vet files CUE on, that contains the CUE.

They they actually rate as NSC the hypochrondiasis? with a percentage. They definitely used and attached rating sheets back then .It would be great if we could read the rating sheet as well as their 1986 claim decision.

If you are able to scan the older decision and rating sheet, cover your C file # and name with an index card or something, prior to scanning it.

    • 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:
