Question

Howdy All,

I recently was bumped up to 100% from 90% after most of my NOD was ruled in my favor by the higher level review in the legacy process. So this is definitely not a complaint. The NOD approvals made my effective date 29 Dec 2017. The back pay was supposed to be for around 28 months. Then like 2 weeks later after I received the decision I received retroactive pay.  Unfortunately it was only for about 15 months. I submitted an IRIS request about it. So now they are doing an audit. The original claim that I filed the NOD for bumped me from 40% to 90% effective 29 Dec 2017. So they took about six months on that one cause it also affected my military retirement pay. They got that right. The VA rep thinks that who ever submitted the NOD details for retroactive pay saw all of the original stuff and probably made a mistake on the dates. So food for thought, if you are successful and get bumped up that requires retroactive pay double check it. If it's not correct let the VA know. I used the "Retro Pay Calculators" that I found online via Google. Not foolproof but pretty close. I'll post an update when I get one.

Congratulations!  Yep, just becaue you "win" does not mean you can stop fighting, VA often lets you win the "small hand" but bonks you when the big bucks cards are dealt.

Good news. Apparently the audit is done. I just received the remaining retro-active pay. Glad their calculators work. 🙂

Gajen Great news! Congrats on the win. 100% club is not easy; lotta work. If you can, when you get your retro, maybe consider making a contribution to Hadit. Ms Tbird does a great job keeping this forum open and it can't be done without contributions from winners like yourself.Nice job.

Congratulations!   "I wonder" how they get the retro wrong so often, "and" most of the time Vets dont catch it.

    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.
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”
