  • 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

HLR closed without taking care of duty to assist error corrections


Question

Hi,

I am praying that someone could help me.  I had a Higher Level Review.  They found several duty to assist errors and was suppose to send it to the AOJ for corrections.  My HLR closed but the duty to assist errors were sent for correction.  I called the 800 number and informed them what was done, I called and asked to speak to a supervisor, I sent a letter through IRIS and I sent a letter to the intake center alerting them all of what was done.  To date, no one has answered my calls or emails.  My case is suppose to be expedited due to hardship.   Is there any one else who I could talk to that would look in to this?  This has been going on for about a month now.

When did these events happen? Did you tell them at each step that it was a hardship? Did you try the white house number also? The corrections or "remands" can take a while to accomplish but have to be completed prior to the VA making a final decision.

With what GB mentioned and what you have already done I know of no other avenue to correct or speed this up other than a request to your congressman or senator.  Hang in there, it may seem like an eternity but a month is a pittance to the VA.  NOD's under the old system are out two years right now.

Do you have access to Myhealthvet? (ebenefits?) if not you can check with your VAMC and have an account given to you..if no computer? then

  you can go see the VBA (Veterans Benefit Administration)ask to see a VSO and you go back with him and request he look into the VBMS (Veterans benefit Management  System) and find all this information your asking about.

you will need his claim # ss #full name 'address & date of claim.

if its not in the VBMS then ask this VSO what you can do or who to contact to help you guys get this claimed processed under the  38CFR 61.1 special regulations of having your claim expedited because of your extreme circumstances of your Hardship.

      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,
    • 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.
