Claims question
Claim for lower back. Original incident my records. Claim labeled first as musculoskeletal, then degenerative disc, then something else, last thing shows intervertebral disc syndrome.  Each time, it seems that they leave out the old records. My original treatment records, send in my records for a records review after my in person C&P exams.  this last time , Dr. stated I didn’t get seen until 2016. Not even sure where that year came from. Lol. 

Claims question
You stated you have been fighting a claim for the last 3 years. Need a little more info.  As far as funds for a lawyer. I use Veterans Law Group. They do not get paid unless you do. No upfront payment. 

Additional proposed changes to VA rules for mental
Mr cue
First there is no rule that a 100% veteran can't work. So I do see were the change is doing anything. It will not effect anyone already rated. Now the bad. I think it will make it hard for new veterans an those who apply for an increase. They don't use the old rules when u put in for a increase. They will use these rules if pass. So if you put in for an increase what will happen? I will say they will either deny under the new rules. Or they can say that your…

Claims question
Hello all.    Been fighting a back claim for last 3 years. Every time, send in new information, get new C&P exams, get different decisions ( but all not service connected), it has been renamed a different disability 5 times.    Have recently been diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos. Has anyone ever had experience with this? Yes, it is genetic, but no, I was not aware that I had it.  aA little bendy, yup, but thought some people were just like that.  definitely a good reason why hurt my ba…

@pacmanx1That's just horrible. Those are legacy system appeals because they are prior to the AMA changes from early 2019. If they continue at that pace and work oldest first, my BVA appeals from early 2021 are likely to be worked in 2025 🙁

Yep, they tried this with me.  Fortunately I knew where they were going so I didn't fall for it.   I like the proposal of being allowed to work while being 100% mental condition.  It gives me peace of mind not worrying about a reduction since I'm working while being rated at 100% ptsd/tbi.  Even though I'm P&T, I'm sure a rater who ever reviewed my rec…

Time for action like Jan 2021 but with DVA. Nam Vet esp but all vets are getting treated poorly after we have laid our lives on the line. Some of our brothers and sisters have given their lives but their families are catching the blues. 

The Board is currently reviewing appeals from May 2018 or older.

C&P exam wrong back in 2005

Clemons v Shinseki is way more than just mental health disorders - VA Disability Compensation Benefits Claims Research Forum - VA Disability Compensation Benefits Forums - HadIt.com Veterans

    • A VA Compensation and Pension Examiners Perspective
      A VA Compensation and Pension Examiners Perspective

      This person is going to judge you. It’s their job, and that is why you are there. To be adjudicated fairly. How would you like to be remembered? A scuzzy stereotypical veteran? Or a troubled one who is doing the best they can?

      Do not talk about alcohol or drug-related issues. You are not there to be assessed for those problems. You are there to be evaluated for your psychiatric functioning as today relates to your service history. If the examiner asks about alcohol or drugs, politely remind them that you are not there for those issues if you’ve ever had them, but for how impaired you are in your daily functioning. It’s best to avoid even talking about them. Got a VA horror story? I can tell you a worse one. Don’t waste your time with how badly you believe you’ve been mistreated. The examiner only has a short time to figure out how impaired you are, and they need the facts, concise sentences, and not rambling rants that lead nowhere.

    • VA Math, Confusing, Right? Calculate Your Final Rating Percentage!
      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic 

      “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service-connected and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating.

    • Post in I need some help, please
      If you are looking for help taking care of him something like a home health aide that comes in during the week and helps with what he needs help with. For this I would contact your local VA hospital and ask to speak to the Social Worker, explain your situation, ask for help and how to proceed.

      If you are looking for additional compensation in the form of Special Monthly Compensation check out this video from CCK Law I think it will give you a good idea what it is and how to go about applying for it.

      For example there is a Special Monthly Compensation Rate for TBI try reading this article from The Veterans Law Blog on SMC T It is a subscription site but it allows you to view 3 articles for free a month.

      Special Monthly Compensation (SMC)

      I hope this helps.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    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.


    • 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.


    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.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
