  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

  • 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

Supplemental claim issues

Question

I filed a supplemental claim after the VA screwed up my DBQ during a C&P exam for filing to increase my percentage for PTSD. The supplemental claim was closed Aug 9 with no updates yet on Ebenifits and of course I can't see anything on the decision yet. My issue is when I open the claim under the issues tab is states under the currently under review area that there's a "compensation issue". What does that mean and has anyone else experienced this? Thanks in advance,

Ricky

Paul, like I said before, 0% isn't the worse thing. It leaves the door open in case your b/p gets out of control (hopefully not). And, if the best you were able to get out of it is 10% (which you didn't of course), your not likely getting anywhere on the SMC front with it by itself anyway. It also does help for DIC for your wife if you should pass because of a stroke or other related conditions, provided it is on your death cert. I am curious  though. In your statement in support of the claim, or else where, did you mention CFR 38 4.31, about 0% min ratings? Or did you anticipate a higher rating and not bring it up?

I have a supplemental claim open. It states, " We dont know your status" and " 1 compensation issue". 

I called the VA instead and got the status on my claim.

GB to be honest I thought they would do a 3 - 5 day BP check, they apparently used previous BP readings from doctor visits at Ft. Eustis. My systolic is over 100 and at times above 110. The VA cherry picked the readings they wanted to use. I will file a NOD for EED and also my BP reading not being current. I never mentioned CFR 38 4.31 (was probably my first mistake), I was thinking they would do a new BP checks. With my NOD I will submit the BP readings from Ft. Eustis (I have printed copies of the readings online) with the NOD and see what happens. If that fails I will file for an increase, the doctor is having a tough time controlling it unfortunately.

I am curious what SMC I would qualify for from BP?

Richard, I hope that you are mistaken.  If that is true that is plain wrong to the veteran.  We need the SOC to fight our denial.  If we do not have the reason for the denial we are groping around in the dark when we write our appeal.  

Actually... we don't need a statement of the case to fight a denial... all you really  need are your medical records, and a copy of the rating decision and a copy of the rating guideline....  Most statement of the case I ever received we so confusing  that I just ignored them for the most part.. and in all but one case won all my appeals..... Now the official reason for not doing SOC's was to save time for the veteran. We can  now appeal directly to the BVA without waiting on a SOC, some times it would take the VA months to do a statement of the case. Also we also don't have to do a NOD when going to the BVA now, we just appeal and tell them why and what we want...... Of course there goes some due process.. but that is what it going on now.... Factually,  the VA benefited from this more than the veteran, but as I said, you really never needed a statement of the case it was just a rehash of the rating decision anyway.

I was just thinking if you have 50% for another disability (or combination of disabilities) then you are eligible for additional steps if you have mobility issues, etc. Just thinking in terms of future issues some veterans have as they age. SMC's are not something I spend a lot of time with on for most veterans I run across. If it applies, then I look it up. I only have so many little gray cells; I can't affort to store that kind of info in there. There would not be any room left for sports stuff.

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
