  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

ITF under AMA appears to alive and breathing.


Question

Several discussions about ITFs under the AMA process have cropped up in other forums. Today in talking about one it dawned on me I could find out a few things by simply starting to file under the AMA process.

In short what I found is that ITF's do indeed exist under the AMA process for New Claims. The process also recognizes automatically if you have an existing ITF from before Feb 19, 2019.

Attached are 5 screen caps on the process. Caps 1 and 5 related to filing a New Claim. The other 3 show what your options are depending on the date of the decision you are appealing.

Read the fine print on Cap 5 concerning previous ITF's.

Will this change? who knows, but as of now the application process under AMA for a New Claim indicates that ITF's are alive and breathing on their own.

As of AMA start date in Feb 19, 2019, ITFs filed after and there on only we’re allowed for 526ez claims. My ITF was from Sept 17 of 2018 and valid for 1 year less a day for all and any claims. My Suplemental Claim was filed under a valid and active ITF prior to Feb 2019. 

Any suggestions on how to make things right as of EED? Thank you.

      Need assistance in where to find on ebenefits to File a VA Form 21-0966 (Intent To File A Claim For Compensation) ?
    • By CapnHaddock
      I need a sanity check...  I filed my first VA claim after being out of the service for over 20 years and was awarded 80% from the day I filed.  I then followed up with another claim that moved me to 90%.  In the mean time I appealed the denials from the first claim.  I am now 100% P&T (I am 63).  I have my good days and bad days but I am not going to complain.  This is my issue - I submitted an intent to file on the second claim and submitted it by overnight mail and can prove that it arrived and was ready for pickup on the morning of May 29th of last year.  That is the day my Intent to File expired.  My package sat in the box until it was picked up on the 30th and was then recorded as arriving on the 30th and the intent to file null and void.  I can prove this from the U.S. Post Office documentation.  I should not have waited to the last minute however that is another story.  I want to submit an appeal for the date of receipt.  Am I opening myself up for another set of evaluations and is this type of appeal even considered.  I have poured through the instructions and can nothing about date of receipt.  Does anyone have any experience on this?

      Hello and thank your reading. Can I file for EED and how to do so?
      Filed Claim with 4 contentions on September 10, 2019 with a ITF from Sept 17, 2018-Sept 16, 2019 after being told by the VBA I needed to file it as Supplemental cause previously denied and closed. I got word from Peggy and sent it in with my new and material evidence to include my ITF 09,‘18-09,’19 which was in the first filing, in time under my ITF on Sept.  14, 2019.
      In late October 2019, Supplemental MH approved and IU inferred/deferred pending application with an effective date of Depression as Oct. 1 2019. 
      I bunched the Depression with 3 others but then quickly submitted it as Supplemental still within my 1 year ITF. All three other claims denied sc or increase denied. 
      My ITF is good for the other 3 and still is do to HLR pending but VA paid no mind of my Supplemental’s EED. 
      I ask again, does my ITF cover my AMA award? If so, how do I appeal for it?

      Another question about the AMA process.
      In 2018 I filed for SMC for ED. I was awarded 0% but SMC allowed. yippee.
      At that time the Award letter said I had a potential claim for Voiding Dysfunction if I choose to file for it.
      Since my other claims were tied up on the VA hamster wheel, I filed an Intent to File.
      AS I understand it since Feb 19 that Intent to File is gone? and my earlier date is done, meaning when I file for the Voiding Dysfunction my file date will be the earliest possible under the new AMA process?
      Is there a way around this to get an EED back to 2018?
    • By GeekySquid
      This is directed @Tbird and the other people who manage HADIT.
      Will there be a new section for AMA now that RAMP is closed?
      Things are kind of a jumble right now and as I am trying to find clarity on what lane I am "supposed" to file in, having a separate AMA section would be helpful.
      Thanks

    • 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,
    • This is the latest Compensation & Pension (C&P) Clinicians Guide dated 20180719. The only other one I've seen is dated 2002, including the one on this website and the VA website. I got this from my claims agent, who got it from the VA.

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      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.
