THANKS

yOU POSTED :

"i have been awarded loss of use for both feet and both hands due to parkinson's.  they gave me an effective date of oct. 2021 when i filed my claim but my medical records show symptoms back to 2016. should they have made the effective date 2016 since parkinson's falls under nehmer law."

Can you scan and attch here the decision to include the evidence list?

Cover your C file #, name, address, prior to scanning it.

I do agree with Bronco vet-

NVLSP will review your decision to make sure they gave you the proper EED.

Email them at agentorange@nvlsp.org.

Footnote One  (with explanation and disussion here under a search)is the essense of Nehmer and is based on past ratings sheets that contained a percentage as NSC for what the veteran can prove now falls under Nehmer as SC.

Was the claim for loss of use ,all 4 extremeties, indicated  on a past rating sheet

or should it have been  coded.

NVLSP will review your decision at no charge because they won Nehmer.

Just to add- we dont get many claims involving seondary disabilities to established AO disabilities under Nehmer. 

I could only find one so far, at the BVA:

To add, and to clarify what I said above  I dont thinkwe get many secondary claims to AOs because they are properly awarded at the VARO level-

 

Warren , this seems to be one of your past posts here:

Service Connected Disability: 100%
Posted January 18, 2014
I was awarded a temporary rating of 30%. My civilian doctor filled out a DBQ (Disability Benefits Questionaire) and i was granted service connection for residuals due to parkinson's. The 30% was discontinued and i was awarded a percentage for each residual, from 10% to 50%. The doctor will assign a none, mild, moderate or severe impairment to the residual's caused by having parkinson's. Don't forget about sexual dysfunction (ED), if that also is a residual, you will receive smc (k). Down load a DBO from VA site or others and look at the sections on the form.
 
If you have any more question's, It would be my pleasure to help you. If he qualifies, I would file for IU, which is 100%. From my own personal experience, your husband is going to need all the support you can give him. I would also file for smc (s) housebound. I didn't know i could file for housebound until two years after i was awarded IU.
 
GOD BLESS"
