NOD (Effective Date)

Question

Posted (edited)

Hi folks,

I put in a NOD of disagreement because I thought the the psychiatrist short changed me on my claim for depression. She put me at 30% and I thought I should be at 50%. The Effective Date for this claim was in August, 2015.I put in for a NOD Ramp appeal  in August, 2015.  I had a C&P exam for my NOD on Feb, 2019.  I ended up getting an increase of 50%, effective date 02/2019.  The funny thing about this is that they started paying me back pay from  Aug,2015 the day I put in my NOD because the extra 20 percent due to winning my NOD put me at 100% disability. I"m worried that I'm going to have to pay a ton of back pay because I wasn't at 100 percent in 2015.  The effective date for my 50 percent increase  was on Feb/2019. Thanks for your help. This is a great forum and it has helped me a lot in the past.

The question I have is VA put my effective date as  Feb,2019 for my decision. I believe they should have put it at August, 2015.  The funny thing about this is that they started paying me back pay from  Aug,2015 the day I put in my NOD because the extra 20 percent put me at 100% disability. I"m worried that I'm going to have to pay a ton of back pay because I wasn't at 100 percent in 2015, however that is when I put in my NOD.  Thanks for your help. This is a great forum and it has helped me a lot in the past.  

 

I think you might be looking at this the wrong way. The day their decision is made is not the date your claim date will start. If I am understanding this they gave you the correct date. If your  eef is the date you said then there no problem.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • Occasionally it becomes necessary for HadIt.com to come to the community to help raise funds. This is one of those occasions.

      A couple of things to keep in mind

      Financial contributions are never required, but always appreciated.


      NOT tax deductible, HadIt.com is NOT a non profit and any contribution you make is just a gift and cannot be deducted on your taxes.

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
