  • 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! 😉

    • Everything Veterans Affairs does with your service connected disability compensation claim, is governed by law. You may want to bookmark this page as a reference as you proceed with your claim.

      It can be a bit daunting. Just remember the U.S.C. is the law, the C.F.R. is how they interpret the law and last but certainly not least is the V.A. adjudication manuals that is how they apply the law. The section of the law that covers the veterans benefits is Title 38 in the U.S.C. in the C.F.R. is usually written 38 C.F.R. or something similar.

      It's helpful to understand how statutes, regulations, and VA directives such as the VA’s Adjudication Procedures Manual, the M21-1MR (Manual M21-1MR.) are related. Of these three sources of law, the statute, written by Congress, is the highest form. The statute that governs veterans’ benefits is found in Title 38 of the United States Code (U.S.C.). The VA writes regulations to carry out the laws written by Congress; these are found in Title 38 of the Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.). The VA’s internal instructions for adjudicating claims are contained in the Manual M21-1MR. VA regulations may not conflict with any statute; the manual’s provisions may not conflict with either statute or regulations. If they do, the Court has the power to invalidate them.

    • I was unable to find a reply box to your post.

      We have a full Agent Orange forum here.

      Many veterans (and even their survivors) have succeeded in getting a disability, not on the presumptive list, service connected due to their proven exposure to AO.

      Also Secretary Wilkie is considering a few new presumptives, but we have no idea if  he will even add any to the list.

      I wrote to him making a strong argument, as  to the potential for HBP to be added, as well as ischemic stroke and have prepared a personal claim based on the same report a veteran used at the BVA, who also had a strong IMO/IME, and the BVA recently granted his HBP as due to his exposure to AO in Vietnam.

      Most veterans with HBP were deemed as having "essential" - a medical term for no know cause- now we have a cause in Vietnam veterans---AO caused it.

       

      The report is here:

      https://www.nap.edu/read/25137/chapter/2

      On page 8 they found there is "Sufficient" evidence that AO caused HBP in Vietnam veterans.

      The BVA case and this report is also searchable in our AO forum.

    • I just received a deposit to my checking account. The description says VALG TREAS 310 TYPE: XXVA.
      I'm not sure who to ask about this deposit. I am concerned because I was not notified I would be receiving it.
      I retired from the Marines in 1997 with 10% disability. I've been receiving a separate disability payment from my regular retirement pay. This deposit is completely unexpected. thank you for any insight.
