Appeal Remanded By BVA

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




Hi All, Its been a minute since the last time I was here due to being consumed physically and mentally from the losses of both my parents and a sibling in 2019 although, I'd make a debut the other day to let you all know that I am well. I am very grateful to be doing so much better. Could someone please explain to me what this letter means from the VBA that I'd received today? Everything was remanded, which it's my first time going through an appeal process. Thank you for any input in this matter!

Prettypantha First and foremost, we certainly extend our condolences to you for your losses. A tough thing to go thru; take it one day at a time. Your decision letter sure seems to be good news for you though. The BVA has found that the VA failed on several fronts regarding a duty to assist. The didn't get your records or attempt to obtain and so it goes back to them to get records from SSA for your headaches. You have to be eval for radiculopathy . They said you should be getting a disability in excess of 10% prior to 6-19-17 and a 30% after that date on headaches. And because they missed the boat on your headaches claim, they failed to eval you for TDIU eligibility. So you can expect C&P's for that as well. The RO will be asking you (eventually) for new exams for these. I think you should also be aware that with your hearing and other potential increases for radiculopathy, you may be able to reach 100% P&T WITHOUT going the TDIU route. You should eval that path carefully. You aren't done yet, but this is favorable news for you.

Remands more often than not turn out to be wins later on from what I have researched.

Good luck to you in the future!

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    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
