  • 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

What do you think of this?

Question

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?

I can't see any document.  Did you attach one?

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.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
