any retro pay can only go back to when you first filed the claim not the date in service that you got the diagnosis. For example if you were diagnosed in 1986 but did no file until 2000, 2000 is

We cant tell from that.  However, did you (or can you) appeal the 2018 decision, and dispute the effective date?  Cue is mostly about effective dates, which it sounds like your issue.  

Also, did you submit new and relevent evidence, and, if so when?

I don’t know if I can dispute earlier effective date.  After my NOD was granted, I received retro back to 2013.  But I was wondering if I can dispute earlier effective date back to 1986 when I was first diagnosed with left foot disability in MEB report.

And no I didn’t submit new and material evidence with my NOD.

Yes, you can appeal the effective date, provided that, the decision awarding benefits was within the past 12 months.  

Other than a timely appeal, your choices are:

1.  To do nothing, and you will net 0 retro.  

2.   To file a Cue, but we would need more information to know if that would succeed.  However,  I think you can make a good case for cue, when they deny then award the same benefit sought, if they used the same evidence.  

3.  However, a reopening due to 38 cfr 3.156 is possible, if you submitted new and relevant evidence.  

So, those are your choices:  Nothing, appeal, file CUE, reopen under 3.156.  And, you have choices of which appeal route, (HLR or supplemental)  hearing or no hearing, laywer or no lawyer.  

Of these choices, my recommendation (but it would be better if I read your file):

1.  File a Nod if possible (within a year of decision).

2.  If its past a year, then your choices are 3.156 (reopen), file a supplemental claim, or CUE.  

If this is possible, I suggest professional representation (a lawyer).

Ever since I got my NOD award decision, I’ve been researching and researching on what to do next.  A friend of mine told me to come to this site.  I’m glad I did....thank you so much for giving me some suggestions on how to proceed.  I don’t know which way I’m going to proceed, but at least, I have better insight...again thank you for your PROMPT response!!!

Another Question:

If I decide to go CUE route(they denied original claim and granted same benefit sought using same evidence)...what law and regulation would I use? And also, if I won...how would that give me more retro? 

I have already received retro when they denied me on my original claim and won my NOD on that same claim

      Was looking for a NAVY MOS list that showed noise levels for my rating, which is now obsolete (BT). Found one I had not seen here. Maybe I just missed it.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • 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,

    • 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.
