  • 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

Will filing another disability claim set back CUE

Question

My husband filed a CUE which will probably be another year or two before it even gets assigned a docket number and goes to Washington.  In the meantime, he is thinking of filing a disabilty claim which would not change his schedular rating, but would add some SMC to his monthly compensation.  In the past, his attorney told him not to file anything new till the CUE gets decided because any new claim would knock his CUE back to the beginning. So, my question is, would opening a new claim or reopening an old claim actually set his CUE back years?

I recommend you take your attorney's advice...He knows way more about your claim than we do.

I disagree with the attorney.

I had CUEs filed in 2003-2004, that were not set for BVA transfer until early 2012.

The Nehmer VARO was working on my AO IHD death at that point. 

Also I had numerous other issues that were filed after the CUE claims above.

One of them was my AO DMII death claim -awarded in 2009.(a re-open)

I advised the Nehmer AO VARO that my CUEs were sit at my AOJ VARO-Buffalo, and not transferred yet to the BVA and that those CUEs were contingent on/( as they would impact on)  the AO IHD claim.A new claim when the new AO IHD regs came out)

But the strongest I made was that they had been filed years prior to my 2010 AO IHD claim and should be addressed first.

The Nehmer VARO awarded those CUES as well as the AO IHD claim.It  took them mere weeks to award them and the IHD AO claim once they began to assess the evidence.

If your lawyer wants to question my advice here ( let him read my reply) I can contact him/or her off the board. I might even know him.

And ask him for the specific regulation in 38 USC,CFR, M21-1MR that would support his rationale.

trust your attorney they get paid for knowledge and laws free advice is good

but always best to trust your attorney.Evidence wins claim but EED of claims

is a different game . Sounds like your cues was from a DIC claim and not a VET CLAIM

for benefits its a different claim all together Dic & VA benefits but you won that's all matter.

Never go against your attorney ask another one what he thinks

The veteran is still alive and well.

I stand by what I stated but you had a good reply too...if another attorney will even speak to any vet whose POA is already held by another attorney.

      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
