  • 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

Second Remand

Question

My case has been remanded for a second time by the BVA and I was wondering if there is any timeframe for the Nashville office to start working on the remand?  One of the "orders" was for back pay back to 2007 and the money would help out a lot right now.

Remands are always supposed to get 'expeditious' treatment by the ROs but that is just an undefined part of VA lingo.

I assume you mean that the BVA granted you an earlier effective date...?

Are you now Rated as IU and did you receive the estimated $21K, less Attorney fee, that you discussed in your July post?

Not all BVA or CAVC Remands have a positive outcome. Remands, either BVA or CAVC, generally receive Priority and are handled by a Sr Rater or DRO. 

Our concept of Priority Processing and that of the RO Rating Dept's is usually very different. I'm not sure but I don't recall a "REMAND" Section listed in the RO MMR (Monday Morning Report). Unless your BVA Appeal included a "Hardship Advancement," I'd say your Remand would be positioned at the bottom of your RO's Remand Pile, awaiting its progression to the top of the pile. First come, First served.

 If possible, a posting of your redacted Remand would be very informative.

Gastone, my appeal can be seen on the BVA decisions page now.  It is Citation number 1724920, and docket number 10-13 906A.  I have not received any back pay to date, I am waiting on the regional office to take care of that. The decision was positive in my favor for service connection and back pay.  The remand, the second one on this case, tells the regional office they were not in compliance with the 2013 remand.  I was hoping that this time around it would not take three years for them to get it done.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
