  • 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.

    • 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.
