No .   If you do have an AO presumptive, and proof of AO exposure, you should file a formal claim.

If the claim succeeds the EED should consider the criteria of  Nehmer -Footnote One.

Meaning if the same presumptive was rated at least at 10 % and listed as NSC ( not service connected) on a past VA decision, the date of that decision should become the EED for retro. 

Lots of info here on Nehmer Footnote One under  search.

This article helps explain who is a Nehmer Class Action Veteran or Nehmer Class Action Survivor:

Shame this is limited to AO  and not all claims that new laws and science show SC for vets previously denied .... limiting to just this condition is really ridiculous...im happy they did it for it Vietnam vets but it should have included any condition later identified as SC bc of VA reg changes..imho

@blahsaysme2uI agree. Although the Nehmer footnote one allows a window for earlier effective dates, it only does so for veterans who actually had claims in the system which met the criteria at the time. Back then, many vets had no idea they could even file claims despite being diagnosed and receiving treatment for AO-related presumptive issues. Really wish the lawmakers would change the earlier effective date laws so that proof of diagnosis, symptoms, and/or treatment would qualify for an EED regardless of when the veteran filed. It seems confrontational for a vet to be sick and not get compensated.

or at least change for those vets that had previously denied claims like Nehmer. the new burn pits regulations are prime example. i have posted about this in another thread on burn pits. there is a law coming, but we need to make our voices heard on this. its called the PACT act. i have been trying to get someone to review the language in the bill to help me better understand, but it seems to support(from my understanding) a reconsideration and EED for denied claims. i have been trying to get input on that post from you all stars but so far only @Berta and @ArNG11 have commented, and not on the new law verbiage itself and EED.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    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
