  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Rated AND Deferred

Question

I have just received my rating for 2 items at 20%..........Now looking at my rate, I noticed that I have 3 in deferment.....My award is the rate for 20%......What does this mean? there is no pending c&p noted on the deferred items. All it did was push my date for those items May 28- Jun 29th 2018 but I will be getting back pay from may 31 2017 for the 2 items they rated me on. But on the other hand I'm looking at this.......effective date of change.....With my other items, plus unemployable which I noted is not even listed under disabilities, but is listed under my claims.. I left out certain items intentionally  since they are not what concerns me. What does all this means? Any helpful explanations would be grateful.

Have you had a VA Forensic PTSD C & P Exam yet? If and when you do, a redacted copy of the PTSD DBQ would address at least (3) of your Claimed issues.

With your current 20% CSC, you're ineligible to file for a Scheduler IU Rating, so unless your CSC Shopping List gets to the required Rating's numbers; you would expect an Administrative Denial of that Claim. However, if your "EOR" Evidence of Record supports a finding of an Extra-Scheduler Award, the Final Decision would be Made by the DC Rating HQ MFIC.                           Vet's that get an Award indicating a 90% CSC will see "Individual Unemployment Claim Inferred" based on the EOR. It's not an automatic Award, the Vet would then have to file the Official IU Claim including the last 5 years of Employment and Earned Income information.

"Deferred" means that VA is missing some information and they wont adjuticate it until some period in the future.  For example, they may have requested your military records to confirm/deny a "stressor" in service, which is necessary for a PTSD rating.  

IMHO, you are relying far too much on ebenefits.  Ebenefits is unreliable.  Its almost like I cited my next door neighbor's 9 year old girl, "Emily".    "Your claim will be denied, because Emily thinks you are not sick".  

"Emily's" opinion is not reliable, and we should not take it seriously, and this is the same thing with ebenefits.  Dont take it seriously.

This happened to me, when i first started my Claim i was low balled at 50%, filed my NoD, was bumped to 70% Schedular, and my Infered TDIU Claim was Deferred, it pretty much means those Issues are going to go back in the process to gather more evidence, keep your chin up, Deferred doesn't mean Denied, and it means that Claimed Issue is still alive and kicking in the System.

Good Info for the Poster Bronco! 😉

    • My claim went back to gathering of evidence after I had my second c&p exam for tbi initial. My vso the Dav said it was a dbq to differentiate the symptoms of tbi and PTSD as far as social and occupational impairment. I recieved at least as likely as not on all exams, PTSD, both tbi exams. Has anyone experienced this or know what it means? Is this a good sign my claim will be granted ? Thank you.

    • Do I have to quit my job?
      Hello everyone. See Below for what I received from VA

       

      A little about me currently. I have a job that is very low stress (work nights no people no stress) very secure because I work in a mountain so im surrounded by granite. I work on computers so it engages my mind and keeps me as active as possible and is my passion. So my question is do I have to quit my job? Thanks!

    • Progress Notes on C&P Exam
      Hey guys, 

           I don't know if I'm in the right place but i was needing some clarification. After fighting with the military for six years, the C&P examiner stated that my condition precludes me from any physical occupation. 

      I developed asthma back in 2012, while in service. Is that typical wording for pretty much everyone? I guess my English isn't that great and i would like someone to please explain to me what that entails? The examiner 

      also stated that there is a 50% chance or greater that my injury was incurred in the line of duty, does that mean that they service connected me? 

       

      thank you for responding.

    • I have a 8 year appeal that was granted in May 2019. Entitlement to service connection for acquired psychiatric disorder, to include  post traumatic stress disorders and depression, is granted.

      I live in Missouri, but it looks like the San Diego RO has been tasked with assigning the rating. I am already SC for 10,10,and 10 for shin splints and tinnitus which adds up to 30%. I was trying to determine what would my rating be and timeframe backpay would be paid.

      My symptoms include : nonetheless the examiner opined that is not to say that his issues with pain and tinnitus have not exacerbated mental health symptoms. In this regard the examiner opined that the veterans chronic pain and tinnitus contribute to several depressive symptoms, including depressed mood, sleep impairment, irritability, diminished concentration and interest in activities, relationship problems, and outburst of anger.

      As such the examiner concluded both his tinnitus and issues with chronic pain (not simply limited to shin splints) Are judged to have aggravated and contributed to multiple mental health symptoms. Therefore the examiner concluded that “it is at least as likely as not” that the diagnosis of bilateral shinsplints and tinnitus has  aggravated depressive and overlapping PTSD symptoms beyond their natural course. My diagnosis includes Anxiety disorders too. 

      My grant is secondary to existing disabilities.

      There is a Remand for Inextricably intertwined with the grant of service connection for an acquired psychiatric disorder, granted in the boards decision herein, because it may be affected by the assignment of the disability rating and effective date for the grant of service connection. Once the disability rating and affective date for the grant of service connection for an acquired psychiatric disorder has been assigned, and after completing any other development deem necessary, readjudicate the claim of entitlement to TDIU are you in light of all pertinent Evidence  and legal authority.

      I am not sure but I hope my rating and backpay would be issued before they decide in another possible year for TDIU?

      I am also one of the ones who constantly check Benny’s for a rate change or any updates, but it is the same since May 23rd 2019. Has anyone received a deposit before benny’s Update. Since the new process has been implemented?
