  • 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

Processing time on dependent


Question

I submitted paperwork to VA to notify of dependent - and at same filed appeal on claim decision from previous year.  I called VA a week ago and was that they only process one claim at a time, and since I filed TDUI and an on the original claim decision (decision received in 2017), I needed to wait to receive response until the TDUI was processed expected in Feb/Mar 2019.  Is that true?  Why wouldn't dependent issue just be processed separately - it was sent to VA in July 2018.

 

Thank you.

No, its not true.  I currently have an appeal pending at the CAVC, another appeal in Ramp.  Its just not true that VA can only process one at a time.  It used to be, because there was only one paper file.  Now, they can be done electronically, especially with dependents.  Allison Hickey, about 4 years ago, was upset it was taking VA forever to process dependent claims.  There is no decision necessary..you either have a dependent or you dont.  

Some Vets have gotten dependent claims in the Hickey era done if just a few days.  Of course, the VA bureacracy dies hard, and there are many who want us to wait forever on everthing.    I suggest you call someone else, or send an IRIS inquiry or contact the white house hotline.

Right-

I filed multiple CUE claims fairly recently-on three separate issues -sent separately , that were awarded in one award letter.

 

Per VA they have all gone to the same person at my VARO.(I hope they can read)

When I became a claimant in 1995, I became claimant on my dead husband's two separate claims issues when he died. (higher PTSD rating and 1151 claim.)

When Nehmer Phila RO got my AO IHD death claim, I asked them to adjudicate 2 CUES I had filed -one in 2003- and one in 2004- stating not only are these claims still at my VARO -Buffalo, but they are both contingent on a proper AO IHD award.

Filed 2003-and 2004 , awarded 2012 by Nehmr Phila VARO.

They were set for BVA transfer but I dont think my RO wanted the VA to even see them.

A twelve year old could have awarded them. They were perfect.

My RO sent me some meaningless rhetoric as I had asked for reconsideration-which added time to the claims but they had told me the CUEs were with a "specialist"- (I think they meant the guy who refills their paper cup dispenser at the RO water cooler .)

I should have whipped out 38 CFR 4.6 on them.Still I was patient , (and in college at the time- too much to deal with) because I knew Nehmer RO would have to grant them.

Actually I can't wait to get some BS from them again, and their decision will go to the OAWB and the (Secretary  and POTUS) and maybe I can join a complaint a former member here filed with the IG against this VARO.) The college above  I went to- was the American Military University-first civilian graduate and  with Honors.

I learned how to FIGHT! And the VA paid for it under Chapter 35.😀😄😀

Next to Evidence, the most important weapon we have , is their own regulations.And we can use those regulations against them- as they try to do to us.

    • 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,

      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.
