  • 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

Post cue decision: "930 rating not addressed see claim notes." What does this mean?


I was checking va.gov after receiving the mostly favorable results of an HLR for an earlier effective date claim for migraines where VA called CUE on themselves.

I say mostly favorable because the effective date claim went back to 2006. The CUE was instead awarded exactly one year back from the date of the intent to file in  March 2019 back to March 2018.

That's when I noticed a new claim for increase on va.gov for TBI that I did not submit.

That's where it says under evidence gathering "Request 1- 930 rating not addressed see claim notes"

I spoke to a VA rep who says that it's an internal review and was about pyramiding TBI and PTSD. I've been mislead by the phone reps before though...

Can anyone make sense of this?

Edit- in the HLR rating decision code sheet it says "REVIEWER NOTE: pyramiding under DC 8045 is outside the scope of the current HLR for earlier effective date for migraine." Could be a clue...

You did very well but I have no idea on the '930' and assume the VA  rep is correct. Maybe....

Can you clarify this:

"I was checking va.gov after receiving the mostly favorable results of an HLR for an earlier effective date claim for migraines where VA called CUE on themselves.

I say mostly favorable because the effective date claim went back to 2006."

That is great! I assume this was the CUE VA called on themselves.

"The CUE was instead awarded exactly one year back from the date of the intent to file in  March 2019 back to March 2018."

Was this a CUE that you yourself had filed?

If so -does that EED make sense to you?

Can you scan and post their Rationale and evidence for that claim? Cover your C file # and name, address prior to scanning it.

While neither VA.gov nor ebenefits is reliable or up to date, "930" probably refers to a number of an employee making a decision.  You will often see a 3 digit number which is a code to the rating representative.  

Better yet, just wait for the decision rather than try to speculate on what ebenefits or va.gov says.

I think I remember something about the 930 #  it has something to do with the way they put your ratings on the rating sheet  its a code for the raters to apply.

I am not 100%positive  so  maybe and maybe not?

I believe this is an internal product code used to identify rating errors that need to be addressed or corrected.  "My VSO told me that you only get one shot at CUE so he filled only for the EED going back to September 2008, thinking that they might call CUE on themselves". Your VSO is incorrect. I won't get into the details about that but this statement is not true. Due to the fact that VA called a CUE on themselves it's most likely what generated this code. If you recently received a decision granting an EED but it did not go back farther in your opinion and you disagree with it, you can still file an appeal to BVA instead of filing a new CUE claim. 

After the local VARO granted my CUE claim, I filed a  NOD disagreement and my claim went back to BVA and I was granted an un-adjudicated effective date back to 1998. It depends on the evidence in your file and the evidence that was in VA'S possession prior to your grant.

Chibears, after my Cue claim was granted by the local VARO and when I filed my NOD back to BVA I did not use an attorney nor did I have a VSO or representative. I just used the VA regulation 38 CFR 3.156 and 3.157 that VA had in their possession VAMC medical records that proved I was being treaty well before my first denial and the rating specialist should have reviewed my entire records.  I believe that VA removed 38 CFR 3.157 from the regulation around 2014-2015 so any decision rated prior to this time can still use this as relevant evidence.

oops forgot 38 CFR .3400

      I was denied for PTSD and migraines two years ago. I’ve been having sessions with a VA psychiatrist till now and found something interesting in my progress notes the other day.
      The VA psychiatrist wrote this: Veteran is a 40 yo male with bipolar disorder, unspecified anxiety, and PTSD from military experiences and MST.
      Does the statement above satisfy the Caluza elements?
      Thank you

      I filed a claim for Sleep Apnea secondary to my PTSD, which is service connected.  I have been diagnosed from the VA as having sleep apnea, and given a CPAP to wear at night.  I used Carpenter Chartered Law Firm to do the claim, but got this denial letter (attached is an excerpt).  In it, it says "In the absence of other major risk factors such as obesity it would be reasonable to attribute OSA to PTSD as this is considered a risk factor for OSA from uptodate.com".
      My thought is that if both obesity and PTSD are considered risk factors, shouldn't it be a 50% chance that it could be either obesity or PTSD, and go to the veteran's favor?  And doesn't that mean that attributing OSA to obesity is just as speculative as attributing it to my PTSD?
      I had Carpenter Chartered start an appeal, so I am hopeful to get it approved.

      Hey all,
      Bit of an update.  I have been SC for PTSD at 30% and tinnitus at 10%, denied for two other conditions and my TBI claim was "deferred".  I had my TBI C&P about a month ago and in the process I've recieved two notifications on va.gov that two more exams have been scheduled.  Well I called VES today after not hearing from them about any new appointments for two weeks and the rep on the phone told me that there was no new exam requested...that the VA actually just "kicked back" the C&P two times.  They said they are "reworking" the exam.  Anyone experience this before but not get scheduled for a new appointment?

      I'm hoping someone could help me with this question. I have two different PTSD events that occurred during my service. One was combat related and the other was non-combat. Do I need to file two different claims or should I just file one and submit my evidence with nexus?

    • 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,
