    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

NOD at 1 year Mark

Question

Hello,

 

  Just a quick question, My NOD is coming up on a year mark since I filed and my VSO said I should have an answer before the year mark is up. It has moved from GOE to review of evidence on ebeinfits. Has anyone else had that happen? thanks for the help.

Root beer I don't wanna bring ya down. I have had a NOD in for 2 1/2 years with no contact from VA or DRO, I requested a DRO review. Just in the last two weeks I saw movement on claim. On Ebennies it went to PREP FOR DECISION. Man was I surprised, The original claim was filed mid 2013.  Its a no brainer to me and everybody else because the physical disability is visual. 

It was my first claim to VA and the county VSO worded it and sent claim in for me. Ever since I have been sending my own claims in with my wording. I did the appeal with NOD and sent it in. Root beer I believe everybody's  NOD is different. It would be hard for me to believe time frames would be the same for appeals requesting NOD. It disheartens me thinking about it. That's why I haven't been around here for a while. It does me good to back away and not dwell on appeal. The whole VA thing drains me dealing with Veterans Affairs.  I saw where Trump signed a bill here a couple weeks ago to fix appeal process but that is suppose to take time to get going.

I had Appeal with NOD requesting DRO informal meeting. I figured it would take 6-12 months. 2 1/2 years still waiting. I am not represented by anybody. Just me vs Veterans Affairs.

I feel the same way. I have DBQ's from my doctors in, Nexus letters from both my VA docs as well as my own doctors and still I sit and wait, and the worst part is the more I read the more I think I will be denied again just because

    • 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:
