    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

Case close for increase claim


Question

Hello everyone,

Happy labors day to all, so my question was i my current disability is rated at 50% since last years, since then i haven't seen any improvement myself, I haven't work much or able to keep a stable job, my last job was at home depot for prob 2 months as a greeters around the end of 2019, I just submit all my disability for an increase on may 2020 and my case just close on September 3rd 2020, when to only 1 C&P exam where the doctor just ask me about my injury and how it feel about it, if i pull any muscle or tears any thing, i told the doctor it just hurt when walk or stand, some flare up sometime on my knee. so i limited myself to mostly sit or lay on bed, can't keep a job for long. She told me so you disable then and just told me the exam is finish. No extra check up/exam, No xray or mri.

 

I know my case is complete and the letter should be here soon, but my question is how likely for me to get an increase? if so how much could i percent should i expected?

I heard from someone that if i get approve most likely my ebenefits rating should have changes before my letter arrived, if it doesn't chance til my letter arrive that mean most likely is a denied letter.

I suffer from fibromyalgia and the way it was explained to me was that I should file for depression. Since I feel that I am a good spirited light hearted type person, that can adjust to anything. Hey

I agree with Pacmanx1 100%. Someone with all your history, including difficulty holding a job, should put in for depression/anxiety/ mental health disability. Like he says, most days he feels he can h

Tuanntrang Don't assume anything with the VA. You didn't get measured with the gianometer for anything at all? She didn't take any measurements? Did you receive an update on VA.gov that said a decision had been made and a letter was in the mail? They aren't going to give an increase without comparing your current symptoms to that from before. Wait for the letter and see if they are asking you if you want to apply for TDIU and submit evidence for that. It is the only thing I can think of. And yes, if there is a change in your combined disability rating, it would be found in the "letters" section when you are checking your benefits. Wait for your decision letter.

@GBArmy Thanks for the reply, they did the measurement last time i was there which was 2019, this time they just ask me about my disability problem and if it flare up or how the pain,etc and if i was working or not.  No measurement or xray/mri of any kind.

Tuesday call the 800-827-100 and ask them if they sent the decision letter, and when. You can ask what they said, but very unlikely Peggy will tell you anything.

      I have a few questions I'm looking at trying to increase my Narcolepsy rating and I'm trying to figure out what all i will need.   I already have 10 people that i work with whom are retired military and military members that have told me that they will write statements  to me falling asleep at work 5 to 7 times a day along with my wife's statement.  i was told that i dont need a Nexus letter when trying to increase a rating, so what would i have my Neurologist that's  been treating me the past 8 yrs. last question is when i was going through my VA appointment's (all done by civilian doctors) i had not noticed a mistake until last year, the mistake is when i was asked about the minor seizures i told the doctor i experience between 5 to 7  a day but last year i noticed that he had put 5 to 7 a week.  the difference from 40% to 80% disability.  I understand i should have reviewed the paperwork after receiving my disability letter in 2009, and I'm not looking to get back pay just want to get the rating i should have gotten with the right wording that should have been put in the report.  this is so confusing and i dont have the money for one of these law offices to take my case.  So I'm hoping with all the knowledge in this group i will at least get steered on the right track.

      According to this, we may get a Cola in 2021 after all!  Remember, we only have to show inflation for 3 months out of 12: July, August, and September. 
      I noticed lots of stuff is going up.  People are charging more because of Covid 19.

      What the “couldn’t fully grant your appeal...” means?. The claim in question is sleep apnea and acne. I’m confused, what can be expected from this? Thanks!

      I received a VA rating early last year for tinnitus and hearing loss. I recently started another claim for back pain, PES Planus(flat feet) and a ankle injury. I have proof in my service medical chart of a back injury on 2 occasion. Plus during the second visit it's document that my pain was continuous for the previous 6 months. 
      The arch of my feet were recorded as normal during my first enlistment. When I reenlisted in the Army after being out of USMC for 4 months i recieced a entrance medical exam. In that entrance medical exam it's documented that i have flat feet.
       Lastly my ankle injury was documented in my service medical records. 
      What is the opinion of getting a Nexus letter with so much proof in my service medical records. Get a Nexus, YES, or NO.

    • 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.
