  • 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

Refiling a denied claim with proof.


I had filed a claim that was denied based that it was not service connected.  However, I found 3 places in my medical records

that show otherwise.  I am already past my appeal cut off date.  I am going to put it in again.  If they approve it this timee

will they go back to the original start date, or is there some other paperwork for that?  Thanks in advance.

You probably will have to fight for it.  If you dont appeal within a year, then you have to try a CUE to get the earlier effecitve date.  However, you may try reopening due to 38 cfr 3.156 b or 3.156 c, depending on if this was evidence in your SERVice records.  It sounds like they had missing evidence, and 3.156 should work.

Broncovet is right!

If the VA approves a SC disability they denied in the past,it is reasonable to assume that their past decisions were wrong, under CUE  (if it was ratable at least at 10% at time of that denial)

or under 38 CFR 3.156. Plenty of info here under the search feature as to how these regulations work.

I re-opened a closed (denied) claim 2 years later with new evidence.  My new evidence was only a month old (over 2 years after I claimed) when I did the re-open.  I was awarded service connection with the re-open date.  My new evidence was directly related to my original claim, but they had no way to know.  It showed in a x-ray for a different problem.

Now if your new evidence is from before the original claim, you need to make sure they (the VA) didn't have that evidence, i.e., truely "new evidence".  They could have seen your new evidence and just did not use it or consider it or even mention it.

Now if they had seen this evidence and didn't consider it, that might be a CUE.  I don't know anything about CUE's, or how they work.

Your first step would be to re-open with what you have for "new evidence" and wait and see what they say.  Worry about a CUE after that.

If you don't have your c-file, get it.  It will show what the VA has for your medical records and claims, etc.

    • 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.
