  • 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

Appeal To The Board


Question

Just received my third turn down from VA.  They say I can appeal to the board.  The reason for turn down is because “Not enough evidence to show service connection.”  They have records of me having physical therapy and sick calls for my back.  Isn’t any evidence some evidence?  Have people had good results from, “Appealing To The  Board?”

You can still file an appeal and then submit new evidence during or after your BVA hearing, which will be the IMO from Dr. Ellis.

I ran my case thru to a few lawyers for higher migraine rating and service connection for ptsd/major depressive disorder after three denials at the regional level. They refused to take my case for eit

It really depends on what you feel you need for your case. If you think it is better for you to get a video call with a Law judge so you can explain everything go that route. If you have all

Personally I would wait for the BVA to do their thing then get a lawyer when they will pay for it at the CAVC.

That can take years if the veteran doesn’t file the correct paperwork. If a veteran doesn’t submit the correct form, their appeal could be stuck in legacy hell (if original claim was filed in 2018 or earlier).

With an attorney, a veteran can request their claim to go under AMA, which saves time with the added benefit of having an attorney present their case before a BVA hearing.

It is true it can, but I don't want to give up that much money.  I am going on 5 1/2 years and I am now at the CAVC with my lawyer who is paid for by the ELJA.  

For someone else it might not work for them and they want it resolved sooner!  Do what works for you!

Get an attorney.

At least you know if an attorney takes your case, there is a good chance he or she see an approval/win.

edit: if memory serves me correct, law firms have a higher winning percentage for appeals than 

I ran my case thru to a few lawyers for higher migraine rating and service connection for ptsd/major depressive disorder after three denials at the regional level. They refused to take my case for either of them.I ended up winning on my own and keeping all my retro.

    • 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,

      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.
