    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

Bva reconsideration


Here is the bva reconsideration that the va lawyer are fighting the court over jurdistion to review.

Lawyer stated cavc doesn't have the right to review a chairman reconsideration because the decision was made after the bva decision.

I can't make this up 

So I guess there no reason for reconsideration and the chairman decision are not reviewable.

Wait for the court decision on just this smh

Look at the last part we're they stated they didn't adjudicated smc I r r1 and told me to reapply lol

U would lose all your cavc review on the issue if u reapply va games

I think what broncovet meant to say but really didn't know how to say it..I'll give my 2 cents Yes you need an attorney to help you   especially help at the cavc, you do not need to represent you

The BVA "only has jurisdiction" over an issue when YOU, the Veteran gives it to him by filing a NOD.  You can not file a NOD on an issue that has not been decided.  So, no, the BVA "does not have juri

Ok I am fine with everyone opinion that what I post for to see different avenues.

Like I said tho I have been a member of hadit since 2000. Yes It has help me a lot. 10 to 60 tdiu thanks to the info on hadit.

I think u have the cavc wrong tho u dont appear there.

An no I don't want a lawyer for this ride. I am doing just fine by my self got my case expidate. Just got the bva reconsideration as part of my case so the judge can address it


Last one min it is to be inferred by the record next u have to apply for ever smc 

Last if the record show everything I have stated an u ganted smc l an never address the smc r its an error

U don't reapply u would lose your rights to cavc review. An back on hampster wheel not me.

They made a decision not to adjudicated it so u go to the court an make them adjudicated

this isn't a increase rating claim issue.

Smc is a whole different ball game I did my work before applying.

I Look at case that why I waited tell I was 25 years protect tdiu. To not lose my rating

An they still change it to grant 2 month of smc smh

It will be vacated tho.

Last I like everyone opinion it help me look at it from different views

No I am not tell ppl not to get the free lawyer.

But for me I hate all the 30 60 day Waits. It's a money game for the lawyers.

They would even talk to me about get it expidate at court because than there no delays

Mr Cue

you make some good points  on some issues you have  and I don't blame you if you want to represent yourself and fight them but it seems your shooting a dead horse here  and they will keep you in remads for years going back and forth,SO  why not hire a GOOD LAW  ATTORNEY WITH EXPERIENCE and get these issues settle a lot faster.

I have to disagree with this 

you mention ''

''Last one min it is to be inferred by the record next u have to apply for ever smc ''

you do not have to apply for SMC its  a statutory rating  ,when the Veteran meets the critera for SMC  they infer the SMC

Example I was 90% and since my rating did not reach the 100% and I could no longer work due to this single 90% rating  they inferred the TDIU P&T   OK tHATS GOOD TO BE PAID AT THE 100% RATE....

Ok there is also an other way to smc s it call been confine to your home.

The court in Howell v nicholson has not been able to leave your house for a income.

Ok so if u get tdiu by the record and court u are confined. U should be inferred granted what ever u want to call it.


Now if the va don't do it an base everything on the tdiu 60 60 thing u can press the issue. 

I am at the court pressing the issue.

The way I see it. Howell v nicholson has nothing to do with tdiu 60 60

That all I am saying

PLEASE EXPLAIN HOW A VETERAN CAN GET SMC   WITH A 60% & 60% Rating using the Howell VS Nicholson Rule?

Now with a 100% rating and  or TDIU P&T  and its a single rating  and is of nature  not expected to improve in the veterans life time And he files for a separate claim and gets 60%   they are suppose to infer the SMC S House bound

but the Howell vs Nicholson  was suppose to change that  simply because the veteran can't leave home for work  so they should infer the SMC S at the time he is granted the TDIU P&T

      In February 1975 I was discharged from service I applied for compensation for a head injury in July 1975 and was denied in 1976 then in 1984 I was awarded 100% for seizure disorder secondary to my in service traumatic head injury.  In 2009 I applied for TBI and was awarded 70% for direct service connection in 2011, I requested an earlier effective date for my TBI since my original claim was in 1975 less then 5 months after my ETS,  I feel my original claim should have been reconsidered but the RO and the BVA overlooked my original claim so I took it to the CAVC and waiting for a decision.

      Well yesterday the stay was lift on my case.
      I get to file my brief. 
      This will be the first time these va lawyers will have to answer my cases.
      The Court allowed me also to have the bva reconsideration. Put in the record also.
      The va lawyer try to tell the court they don't have jurdistion over bva reconsideration because they are made after the bva decision. Smh
      If that the case no need for bva reconsideration  it's stop the 120 day time to appeal to cavc so how is it not part of the appeal  process to cavc  to be reviewed
       Can wait to see what court rule on this.
      I am just venting again get my mind right
      my case is expidate so I got 20 days for my informal brief it's ready lol just go over it  and va got 20 day to reply than I got 7 to reply. Than off to judge.
      Boy I am nervous lol an I prepare for this for years smh

      Hello, I checked ebenefits and it said I received a GRANT from the CAVC for increased rating "anklyosis of the shoulder." I had appealed for depression and anxiety as well and they were not addressed on ebenefits so I am guessing it is still on remand at the BVA level. Ebenefits also stated that my remand would take 16-24 months. I am currently 60% with 10 for tinnitus, 20 for ankle, 20 for shoulder, 20 for shoulder radicupathy, 10 for knee. What does all this mean? if I am not providing the information needed for input I am happy to do that but at this time I dont know what else to provide you guys.
      Thank you.

    • I already get compensation for bladder cancer for Camp Lejeune Water issue, now that it is added to Agent Orange does it mean that the VA should pay me the difference between Camp Lejeune and 1992 when I retired from the Marine Corps or do I have to re-apply for it for Agent Orange, or will the VA look at at current cases already receiving bladder cancer compensation. I’m considered 100% Disabled Permanently

    • 5,10, 20 Rule
      The 5, 10, 20 year rules...

      Five Year Rule) If you have had the same rating for five or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless your condition has improved on a sustained basis. All the medical evidence, not just the reexamination report, must support the conclusion that your improvement is more than temporary.

      Ten Year Rule) The 10 year rule is after 10 years, the service connection is protected from being dropped.

      Twenty Year Rule) If your disability has been continuously rated at or above a certain rating level for 20 or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless it finds the rating was based on fraud. This is a very high standard and it's unlikely the rating would get reduced.

      If you are 100% for 20 years (Either 100% schedular or 100% TDIU - Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability or IU), you are automatically Permanent & Total (P&T). And, that after 20 years the total disability (100% or IU) is protected from reduction for the remainder of the person's life. "M-21-1-IX.ii.2.1.j. When a P&T Disability Exists"

      At 55, P&T (Permanent & Total) or a few other reasons the VBA will not initiate a review. Here is the graphic below for that. However if the Veteran files a new compensation claim or files for an increase, then it is YOU that initiated to possible review.

      NOTE: Until a percentage is in place for 10 years, the service connection can be removed. After that, the service connection is protected.


      Example for 2020 using the same disability rating

      1998 - Initially Service Connected @ 10%

      RESULT: Service Connection Protected in 2008

      RESULT: 10% Protected from reduction in 2018 (20 years)

      2020 - Service Connection Increased @ 30%

      RESULT: 30% is Protected from reduction in 2040 (20 years)

    • Post in New BVA Grants
      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • 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,
