War is Hell...But victory is oh so sweet
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 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.
If you like charts, MOOA explains how Cola is calculated based on only the summer and fall.
Well, it's been a few months and I'm still waiting. Last thing that happened was a C&P Exam in Dec. that strongly favors my Appeal. The examiner at the VA Medical Center said that my Remand was in Nashville. I spoke with Peggy a week or so ago and they said my file went back to Philly. So, I really don't know which RO has my Remand. Peggy said that the RO takes between 30 and 60 days to review the results of the exam. When I read the exam report, it is clearly in favor of me finally getting SC for chest wall injury caused by chest tube. I'm hoping to get 60% for that. The Asthma should be no less than 30% because of all the cortico-steroid inhalers. Lastly, IU should hopefully be granted. It has been a very long and difficult grind. I'm more anxious now than at any other time because I'm so close to the end.
I've been busy helping other Vets in a Facebook group and have neglected my home here. Will spend more quality time here. I hope and Pray that all of us get the benefits we've earned. If anybody can answer a question: If the RO Grants the Appeal, which from what I gather, they can, will they notify me or will they send the file back to the Board? If the RO Grants the Appeal, where would I see that first: Ebennies, va.gov, bank account or snail mail?
broncovet posted an answer to a question,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.
Ztmiller8 posted a question in Appealing Your Veterans Compensation Disability Claims NOD, DRO, BVA, USCAVC,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!
Joey Ross posted an answer to a question,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,

This is the latest Compensation & Pension (C&P) Clinicians Guide dated 20180719. The only other one I've seen is dated 2002, including the one on this website and the VA website. I got this from my claims agent, who got it from the VA.

Tbird posted a question in VA Disability Compensation Benefits Claims Research Forum,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.
