  • 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

NOD Question


I have submitted requests to reopen a few items the VA denied initially in 2001 and 2008. I have also requested some increases of items they did approve in 2001. SO my question is concerning submitting a NOD if I disagree with the VA. Do I submit one NOD per claim even if I have multiple disagreements for that claim like percentage and effective date? Or would I submit an individual NOD for the effective date and one for the rating?

You should submit "one" Nod form for each VARO decision.  


For your 2001 decision, you should submit a NOD disputing 2 issues:

Disability percentage and effective dates.

Ditto for the 2008 claim.  

BUT WAIT!!!!!   Dont submit a nod on a 2008 or 2001 claim!!!!!   Why?  Because it will be automatically denied as its not filed timely (within a year).  There ARE exceptions, however to this.  One example is if you did not receive the applicable notices of your rights to appeal.  

If you dispute a 2008 claim, there are ways to do that.  

1.  As you mentioned, you can "reopen due to new and material evidence" 38 CFR 3.156C.  (new service records).  

2.  You can also dispute a 2008 (or 2001) claim on the bases of Clear Unmistakable Error. but you would want to post this on hadit, to see if hadit members agree this rises to the level of the Cue standard of review.

Did they give reason as to why they denied to reopen your claims? for 2001 &2008? 

or do you mean you were denied  back then in your original claims?

  You do refer to reopen! Just remember they do have special circumstances when REOPENING CLAIMS.

I agree with broncovet  file NOD Appeal claims separate.

Thanks! I have not received the decisions yet. Just getting my knowledge up to speed before they come in. I hope they say yes to all and back date the couple that should be. I also hope to win the lottery this week. 🙂 This forum has been a great help in understanding the true nature of the VAs approach in dealing with our claims.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
