Retro pay


SPO

Question

Here is a hypothetical.  Has anyone ever seen the VA make a partial decision on a Board grant, and issue an effective date to keep the payment amount under the $25k point, for which they need more signatures, to possibly get the payment sent out faster.  Then finish necessary development and fix the effective date to issue the rest of the back pay?  Just being hopeful that is what may be the situation with mine.  It is flagged as hardship, so maybe they hoping they were just keeping the back pay number down for now to get it out the door faster while they finished some other stuff.

In your case no, but you never know. 

In your case meaning, since your disability is showing 90%, not sure what/how a partial grant would do. The next level will either keep you at 90% or increase your rating to TDIU or 100% scheduler not including any SMC if awarded.

Sorry I haven’t updated my profile.  I’m at 100% as of the partial grant that was issued.  Effective date of 7/2020, but the initial claim was filed 11/2018.

The BVA granted me a grant with a remand and the RO tried not to implement my BVA granted decision. It took about 14 (fourteen) months before I got my retro, and my remand is still pending several years later.

My thing is they have already paid me some retro, but not to the right effective date.  Just trying to be hopeful that I won’t have to appeal again

After my retro the RO denied my rating increase even though the BVA has already set me effective date and forced the RO to restore my rating increase. Mine is not only a continued pursued claim it is also based on 38 CFR 3.156b.

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
