    employment 2.jpeg

DRO meeting not scheduled

Question

Fellow vets:

Briefly, I submitted NOD through VA county regional rep along with a letter stating if I would like a personal hearing. However if

I am to be approved for IU then I would agree to waiver the DRO personal hearing.

Now on ebenefits it states my appeal is complete, hearing disposition is cancelled.

It's what I asked for, any thoughts and thanks!

If they gave you IU then your possibly  cutting yourself short on what you filed a nod on. Don't forget they can take that away anytime to the limit if they prove your disabilities isn't bad enough to keep you from earning income. JMI

What was the NOD Issue and date of the Award?

Your E-Ben page actually addressing the DRO Hearing is remarkable, in and of itself. Just may be, E-Ben is really getting on the Stick, as to real-time Claim Status.

Be sure your VA Direct Deposit Bank/CU account is set up to real-time Txt & Email you regarding all Financial Transactions. My most recent 07/16 Retro still hit about 6 weeks before the Award Letter arrived. Can't say I paid much attention to my E-Ben EED Claim Status update, after the Retro Deposit Txt/Email, no real idea of when it changed from Open to Historical.

Check your E-Ben Award Letter's Section, it will list your New Comp Rate and if P & T has also been assigned. If your IU Award is based on a MH Issue, the P & T might be a stretch.

Sorry sir, I hit the wrong key...

I have bilateral neuro. along with ptsd plus other sc

was a letter carrier for many years 

My VSO ( who is terrific) wrote a letter with me requesting I would waiver a face to face dro if I was

going to be approved. The e-ben page has appeal is complete where it states hearing disposition  states cancelled.

I can only hope, what a long weekend.

6-1 appeal was completed.

Thank you for response!

    • 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:
