    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

E.E.D. Question?

Question

What would be the EED Here 

Example

Veteran WAS RATED 50% & filed for increase 1999... Had DRO HEARING  & was awarded the increase to TDIU P&T in Feb 2003.

DRO Mention that this veteran was paid retro back to the 1999 date of when he first filed for increase The adjustment from the 50% to the IU 100%RATE

Now for the 20 year protection rule since they paid him back to the 1999 date for the IU what would be the date for his 20 Year Protection Rule?   the 1999 date when they paid him back to that date  or the 2003 date he was adjudicated the IU?

 

Anybody know?

Thanks.

I believe the 20 year protection calculation should begin in 1999 and complete in 2019. They paid him IU back to 1999 and that should be sufficient.

Alex Graham addressed this issue:  The effective date, is the date for the 20 year protections, not the date of the decision.

broncovet

So in my case  it would be the 1999 date? the year I filed for increase and got paid back to that date   well the difference from 50% to 100%

The date of the decision was 2003.  IF ITS THE 1999 DATE  THEN NEXT YEAR IS MY 20 TH YEAR  

Hotdamn yahoooooooooooooo

I agree with @broncovet My initial claims were filed in 1995, but awarded on appeal in 2000. My effective date was 1995 which meant my 20 year protection was effective in 2015.

    • 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
