  • 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

Questions on BVA, Pending Case Dispatch, Administrative Case Processing and Remand?

Question

Guest ScareCrow

 

Hello,

  My VA Appeals at the BVA were going back and forth between -Pending Case Dispatch to -Administrative Case Processing to Your Case is with a Veteran Law Judge and this happened several times until now, to this.....-'Remanded Appeal Your appeal has been sent back for further development by the Board to the Appeals Management Center or to the office that made the original decision on your case'.

So my questions are:

1. Since I have several SC items in this VA appeal am I to understand correctly that each SC item in my claims being examined by the VLJ made a decision on each item then returned that particular SC item back to the VARO to carry out whatever the VLJ ordered, would that be correct?

2. Concerning the -'Remanded Appeal Your appeal has been sent back for further development by the Board to the Appeals Management Center or to the office that made the original decision on your case', does this mean that I lost whatever particular SC item this was attached to in my VA claim?

3. Am I correct in that the BVA does not issue awards, benefits, etc, but will instruct the VARO to do so?

Thank you and regards,

ScareCrow

Yea..it sounds like you found out first hand how unreliable ebenefits actually is, you have no choice but to wait on BVA decsion.  If its a remand, you can not appeal it, as its not final.  You have to wait until VARO complies with the remand order.  EXCEPTION:  Many appeals have multiple issues.  You can appeal any denied issues, and, you can appeal "granted issues" if you dispute the percentages or effective dates.  

However, as far as issues addressed by the remand, you have to wait until that is finished to appeal.  

Example:   

You get a BVA decision on 3 issues.

1  Your issue of  PTSD and is remanded for a c and p exam.  

2.  Your issue of a knee condition is denied.  

3.  Your issue of a back issue is awarded, at 20% effective Mar 1, 2017. 

      In this example, you can appeal numbers 2 and 3 as they are final decisions, but can not appeal your PTSD..you have to wait for the results of the VARO implemententing the remand.

ON THIS QUESTION,,, DO VETS HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE GRANTED PORTION TO BE PAID TO THEM ? LIKE, NOTHING CAN BE DONE ON GRANT/AWARD UNTIL A REMAND IS COMPLETED OR CAN varo DO THE GRANTS WHILE WORKING ON THE SEPARATE REMAND?

The VA published a memo, I was looking for it the other day.  No.  They are supposed to pay you right away with a partial grant.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
