  • 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

VA.gov updated today - SOC couldn’t fully grant your appeal.


Go to solution Solved by dloehr22,

Question

Hello everyone. This is my first post. I have a 90% rating (94% according to VA Math) for back, knees, ptsd, broken foot, tinitus, migraines, etc. I have an appeal with 11 things on it. Its for increases and earlier effective dates, not necessarily anything new. I filed a NOD. I then had some exams. I now got onto VA.GOV and saw that as of 2/28/2020 they sent a statement of case that says:

"The Statement of the Case explains the reasons why they couldn’t fully grant your appeal."

My question is this : Does this mean that something may have been granted since it said "couldn't FULLY grant" instead of saying couldnt grant it all together? Sorry if this is a recurring question on here. Any advice would be so appreciated. I check my award letter, and my disabilities tab and all of them say the same thing so I didnt know whether to be numbed out or not. I only need 10% increase on any given thing to get over the 100% hump. And according to my exams and what I have researched, it should be granted... but I try not to get my hopes up :(. Thanks everyone.

In calculating your combined rating, I hope you used the 38 CFR 4.25 https://community.hadit.com/topic/53306-va-rating-chart-cfr-38-part-4/    

dloehr22 Ruby said it best; use a va calculator. There are many available on the internet. You are rated at 90%, but that last 10% is tough to get. For each new or increase in a disability of 10%, you

Dloehr22: I received the same statement use got 2/8/2020 with eight claims which were all denied just 

wait until you the envelope hopefully it will be a positive response..............

Thank you for the reply. That is definitely a bummer on your end. I hope for something positive as well. I will keep everyone posted here. Called the 1800 number and they wont speak to me about it. Nothing updated on ebenefits or va.gov so just hoping it comes in the mail soon. That's all i can really do at this point. Thanks again.

Basically it means you need to wait for the envelope.  

However, if you go to "letters" on ebenefits, you "may" be able to find out if you got an increase overall or not.  The reason is, even tho ebenefits and VA.gov are unreliable, the VA does not want us running around with "letters" which come from VA which says we have 100 percent disability rating, when we dont.

      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.
