    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

4th of July appeals

Question

Well I hope everyone has a good and safe 4th of July. I’ve come to understand the 18008271000 really nice do not have accurate info on your appeal my appeal was remanded to the RO/AMO. I received there decision and denial on June 1st and mailed back the page two to avoid delays and be sent back to the BVA. They give me the scripted answer well your appeal has been remanded I said sorry sir it has already been decided you can see page to of the decision entered into my appeal to waive the RO review and goto the BVA. He said I see your point the other pages haven’t been entered I laughed, question is will my decision be entered into my appeal or will it just be sent to the BVA? It shows two appeals pending on ebenefits that’s   Just a motion to reconsider the fact they denied a condition I never filed for using a condition saying A didn’t cause B but they never service connected the A which I did file for. Apparently that’s  with a judge awaiting....just when you think the wait is over they update there system!F561EED2-0886-4D5F-85E9-5090540BFC34.thumb.jpeg.b98c0cfc19ff0cf6d8021230975f80cc.jpegCB60EA28-D83D-440B-9C9D-BD14F1F7BC31.thumb.jpeg.03b4d8de81d1fcde54a8ee8dbc6250b0.jpeg

Did you get a written decision?  If so, that should "trump" ebenefits.  In fact, the advice from your next door neighbor's 4 year old daughter is probably more accurate than ebenefits.  You should call the BVA, your VSO or attorney for better information.

Lol sounds about right i gave the AMO a call they said it was all sent back to the BVA on the third and will resume where I was on the docket.  Funny how things only move when your actually checking in on it. Now my motion to reconsider is actually with the judge not sure what he’ll say. The DVT issue was denied there at the AMO saying there was no current diagnosis of a DVT and MRI done agrees. The other reason was they could find no information or diagnosis of a DVT related to my service totally ignoring the bilateral DVTs I had from my TBI that is service connected sounds like another long fight...the AMO didn’t sure any evidence just said they could find nothing which is so dumb.. I will be calling the BVA tomorrow to make sure they have my DVTs diagnosis from 2006 and 2007 and to see if anything will be needed for the skull fracture..

I called them well more specifically the director who routed my call to a representative working on my claim. So I am awaiting for it to be recertified to the BVA again see how long that takes. It’s only been since July 3 so technically he said they have 14 days to wait for new evidence even though I signed the 30 day waiver. And it’s the AMC now I was corrected multiple times by them and the RO...

Who remembers the office of case management until they shut there number off a year ago for helping to many vets...

    • 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.

      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
