    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

Remanded back to st. Pete

Question

Even though we had wavier, for decision be made at bva.  The docket number is14-41 036A.  From what I understand they want the ro to make decision if renal failure is due to cads.  It is like they are totally over looking that we filed it has secondary to Diabetes, because hubby was not diagnosised withcads until 2013,and va granted it in July of 2014.he was diagnosised with renal failure in 2011.??  that is the reason for filing secondary to diabetes.  Let me know what you all think.  And hubby did not file for iu,but now they are telling him to?  What are his chances.

There is always the possibility that your claimed Secondary Nexus is in error. What VA or Private Nephrologist Treatment Notes or IMO  backs up your DM II Nexus?

As to the IU Claim, if he's over 60% SC or meets the requirements for an Extra-Scheduler Award, why on earth haven't you already filed for IU?

Do you have a POA-VSO handling your Claims and Appeals, big mistake if you're doing this as DIY project? Especially true, if IU has been a missed opportunity for an extended period.

Lookup VA Accredited Claims Agent #39029 POA Code EIP. Do a Consult and get this over with. It's time to get this handled by a Pro so you folks can get on with your lives.

This VA Claims Agent can get it done either at the BVA Level or CAVC if necessary.

We just found out, instead of going back st. Pete, it went to Cheyenne, Wyoming.  They have some kind of program going where they help each other.  But other than that we have not heard anything.   They granted an increase on diabetes and remand renal disease and tdiu.  So I understand the increase has to be rated.  So does that mean we will not get back pay on that increase, until they finish the remand?   We are more tired military.  All this is confusing.  Going to call Wyoming and see if they have sent anything out yet.  My mail has been coming so late.   And we don’t get as much  junk mail now.  I have worked at a post office yrs ago, where the carrier got caught dumping mail in a trash dumpster, where he thought would not be found.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
