  • 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

Submitting new evidence

Question

I have a claim on appeal and i am considering sending in some new evidence to BVA. According to VETS.GOV my appeal was certified to the board in December 2017 and there is more than 113,00 appeals ahead of mine so i know i have a long wait. I have been checking the status of this appeal on VETS.GOV the past few months and last week a box appeared stating " Decision soon. Submitting new evidence now could delay review of your claim. I don't understand how there could be a decision soon but i am now reluctant to submit anything for fear of causing a delay. Did anyone else see a decision soon message on VETS.GOV? It just showed up for me last week..    image.thumb.png.4300b345f0684f01a0f1be462a828365.pngimage.thumb.png.4300b345f0684f01a0f1be462a828365.png

If you have new evidence, yes, it may cause a delay.  However, if this evidence is important, then you are better off to submit it and delay, rather than not submit it and have to appeal.  

If you dont have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?

Be ready for BVA 

 

Be ready for BVA Denial!           You have 60 Day request for Direct Request for BVA Denial ending up in form of Judge (CAVC?) Rewarding, Denying, Lawyer Fees (Big $$) while your Denial gets a return back to RO for a redo.

Of course you are right and i will submit the evidence. I just don't understand why they put that" decision soon" box on the vets.gov status. They have a graph showing 113,000 appeals in front of me. I assumed i had close to 2 years before they get to it. I called the BVA number and the lady said they had my file but it has not been uploaded in their system yet. She told me i had time to submit evidence but she could not explain the" decision soon" box and said it made no sense. The vets.gov tracking system is much better than ebenefits but nonsense like this only serves to create confusion. Maybe in the eyes of VA a decision 2 years away is "soon". I am curious if anyone else got a "decision soon" notice on vets.gov and at what point in the appeal did it show up?

    • 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.
