  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

I had originally mailed my recent CUE to the VARO. About 8 days after receipt at the VARO I called Peggy to confirm and I was advised to send to Janesville. So I faxed the 23 page CUE claim last night.

I hope to see it listed in eBenefits sometime next week.

Thanks Red- I was not sure .

I want them to not only prepare a proper rating but also to apply VA OGC Pres Op 08-97 .

My packet will be almost as big as yours is-

Because most of it will be evidence they had when they rendered a 2015 decision but ever used it and I was so angry 

( this has happened on every claim I have filed) that I didnt wait to deal with them again. 

I went against my own advice here - Never Give Up.....

But after reading the  2015 decision and reviewing my notes on their phone calls to me-and my evidence,

their errors were ludicrous....and as I mentioned somewhere here the other day-

type of error could prevent any survivors from attaining DIC under the ten year 100 % SC P & T rule.

"Where to send it?" is kind of a big deal.  There have been court cases on Veterans who sent stuff to the wrong place and, of course, the VA did not forward it to the propper place.  Stuff to the CAVC has to be sent to the CAVC, but, it becomes fuzzy elsewhere:  Is this a BVA issue or VARO issue?  

Its amazing how VA seems to lose stuff when that particular piece of evidence is critical to the Vet winning his case.

GREAT Broncovet!

I had to come here yesterday a few times to read the advice I gave others here-re: CUE.

Then I used my new word processor program to turn my March 2015 1151 HBP denial into a pdf and then I made April 2015 award 1151 HBP ( under CUE in the appellate period) into a pdf, but I had problems posting them in the CUE forum-

As soon as I get used to this new set up I will do that-To get a reversal like that in a month, means my tactic works.

It was a simple CUE under 38 CFR 4.6.

    • 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
