  • 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

Won my CUE Claim for Skin Condition

Recommended Posts

I just got a phone call from my VSO who said my RAMP decision letter will be mailed out today.  I won an earlier effective date (CUE claim) for my skin condition!  I was denied on the PN earlier effective date which I knew was a long shot.  My skin condition was rated at 0 in May 2009 and I had an overall rating of 60.  In Jun 2017, I was finally increased to 60 for my skin condition.  If I had been rated correctly for my skin condition in 2009, my overall rating would have been 80.  So the back pay will be the difference between 60 and 80 percent from May 2009 to June 2017 -- not bad.  I can't wipe the silly grin off my face.  You can see my other posts in the CUE Forum.

Yippee- you had a beauty!

The whole thread is here- a worthwhile read for anyone contemplating CUE-


BTW the skin regulations changed recently-but you were grandfathered in under the older regulations-

GREAT News! You are the third or fourth CUE winner here with a skin condition they made legal error in.

Maybe the newer regulations will prevent more erroneous skin denials.

I went through the whole thread again- what a BATTLE you had and WON!

VA hates CUE claims- I think it is because they don't have the literacy skills needed.

JustGettingStarted - you are our most recent CUERINO!!!!!!!!!

When we are right- we are right!

My SMC CUE took from 2003 to 2009 to be awarded-they kept saying it was with a "specialist"-

but there was no "specialist" at my RO . I actually doubted the basis of this CUE a few times,due to denials,  but it remained at theBuffalo  RO until Nehmer happened and they awarded it at the Nehmer VARO in a heartbeat.

I think "specialist" is VA's designation of someone who can read.

You NEVER gave up- tht is so commendable.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!


      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
