  • 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

Where is the $$$ ?

Question

My husband's CUE was approved by the BVA in August. The letter from them stated we would be hearing from the VARO within one to two months.  It has now been 4 1/2 months and nothing, no letter, no money. His attorney is filing a court order so that we can be paid and said that this is happening more and more frequently.  BVA approves CUE and then nothing happens.  Has anyone else experienced this? We were so thrilled that the CUE was actually approved after so many years of waiting, but now we are at an impasse once again. How long does it take to get paid????

After 15 days of your decision  call thew 1-800#  and call your VA Reginol Office ASAP.

also check the status on e benefit's 

Larger Retro Amounts take longer to be approved for waiting officer 3rd signature.

https://www.va.gov/disability/about-disability-ratings/after-you-get-a-rating/

Note: when you do get your retro check...check the dates carefully make sure your paid for these 4 1/2 months  ...don't let them beat you out of one  penny!!!

If we own (VA) then you can bet your boots they get every penny back.

They are holding back too many retros Buck-

The BVA is working faster than the ROS BUT this is a problem for many here-

I used to say complain via IRIS- now my advise is to call the White House Hot Line.

Marina, that is great that you won the CUE!

If more vets start complaining to the WH Hot Line, maybe something will be done about this- heck I used to get the $$$ before the award letter came.Many of us did.

 

White House Hot Line 1-855-948-2311

." His attorney is filing a court order so that we can be paid and said that this is happening more and more frequently. "

GREAT! It is probably a Mandamus Writ and will appear on the US CAVC site as soon as they decide it.

(It would be great if it was a Class Action writ  !!!!! for ALL adversely affected.)

The most recent writ of mandamus was decided in about a month- my PC is acting up because of the storm ( we expect 2 feet of snow)this might not post

It is Pequignot V Wilkie- the claimant however asked writ be dimissed because his RO did send him what he had asked for http://m.uscourts.cavc.gov/RecentDecisions.php

  (18-6725)

By filing a mandamus writ and by sending a copy of it to your VARO-it sure  might get some thumbs out of the RO butts,.

Long ago I filed a mandamus writ and the court (COVA I think then) denied because I had not exhausted all avenues of appeals- true- but how do you exhaust all avenues of appeals  when your RO cannot read?

I did send copy of the writ to my RO and within a few months they awarded.

I agree with you Ms berta...

I know when I got my retro 17 years ago it had been in the bank for 2 weeks and we didn't know, we were still eating Bologna Sandwiches.

Congrats on the win, and sorry to hear of your growing headache. I helped 2 Vietnam vets get 700k and 279k and it took about 6 months for both of them to get all their money. The VA had to do a Financial Audit on themselves to verify Accuracy. Just try to hang in there, the War is won, just wait for the Battles to go thru. Good luck and God Bless

    • 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.
