Step one after 4 months i would be calling in. there must be something missing like a report or QOL report etc!

For veterans affairs to do it that quickly it is amazing even for a reassessment.

Bosn181 and Art8 - I read your both stories here interesting!
Bosn181 -any news on your hearing loss claim?
Art8- from the time you made you initial Vac account disability claim for severe tinnitus until you had your LSA in hand was it only 9 weeks?

You would likely need to request a reassessment, which takes roughly the same amount of time as a new application.

Hi, does anyone know once you have the masking device for tinnitus if VAC bump you up another 5% automatically or I have to call them or else. I am assuming they should know about this because blue cross or VAC approved it †(they paid directly the hearing specialist). I was approved 6 % (5%+1%), then couple weeks ago got a masking device but they have not upgraded my disability to 11% yet

the tinnitus should be fine even if you put two or more in they should be looking at tinnitus separately, heres hoping it all goes good for you and you get the answers you need in a timely manner keep us updated and good luck my son.

TInnitus

Post by coppers2002 on Wed 07 Mar 2018, 20:27

My Tinnitus reassessment was submitted with my lumbar back one by medical staff. Does anyone know if they show the same date if I need to wait for both to be decided. Was hoping they would settle the tinnitus one as it made a 7% increase for me. The service date shows Feb 14th but am not expecting answers until the summer hopefully. Has anyone had any experience with two reassessments going in together and wait times? Thanks for any info.

even with the top up i did not get a true top up to 360k. my awards dated back to 2008 and they took the cost of living off me every year going back. i thought like a few others it would have been 360k minus what they already paid me but that did not happen.

Shouldnít it all even out tho since we all got the top up of the 360,000? I thought that was the point of the top up?

it will all depend on when you got your award. i know a few others sitting at 100% but never paid the 360k it would be to hard on my brain right now to explain how they did the paper work. they took the cost of living off going back each year to see what the 360k was worth the year i got the award so sitting at 100% now when you got your award back in 2008 was a bout 38k difference i think

After reviewing everything, I think I may know what was done. My letter said I was previously 34% disability, ( I was also diagnosed with 30% PTSD, and 4% Timothyís) but with the 7% increase on tinnitus it bumped me up to 41% which gave me a 5% increase.
Iím still confused as to why if Iím a total of 41% disability, and should be payout of 40%, that means 40% of $360,000 is 144,000. But after I receive this 5% I will only have a total of 136,000 ish.

Am I wrong in thinking this?
