Tinnitus i think i got 5/5 and 6% for Tinnitus. I have noticed it getting worst in recent years. My costco hearing specialists tell me that masking devices do not work. Bosn081 say that if i get a prescription for a masking device my percentage will rise to 11%. Can some tell me the procedure? What forms # and name i will need to fill out and should i get a a hearing Doc Prescription before i even ask for a reassessment?

if your not maxed out on your tinnitus don't forget you can also get a masking device which is 5% you will need a prescription with the model number before submitting it which hearing loss doc can help you with

Yeah propat I didnít get any type of payout after. It was just the $3000. So Iíll wait and see what happens I guess. Thanks for your help guys.

ya bigrex they do tend to play the numbers seen that as well but with this guy only getting around $3000.00 witch at the time was only about 1% at the time instead of the 4% he should have received they don't have a lot of choice here to save cash. either way they do it its it will be similar . 11% - the payed 1% or a 10% payment minus what was paid are not the exact same but similar to 36000.00. if they tried anything else id be fighting this .

now that is today if I'm not mistaken in the past before the last NVC changes no percentage was paid on anything lower than 5% just some sort of gratuity something like the PA witch explains the 3000.00 . the confusion with me is all the guys below 5% that received a small amount prior to the last changes got toped up after the changes .

just something to think about .

if he did receive a top up after then that would further reduce the amount and perhaps give them an in to play with the numbers .

as it stands with the single payout of around 3000.00 he should be fine .

There are 2 ways it can go. IMO, the way it should be handled would be that you get the current 10% award, minus the money you have already received. Unfortunately, if they are still trying to save money, they could treat it as a separate 7% award, paying you at 5%

I've had 3 LSA's since 2006. the first one was 10%. The second was 3% several years later, paid out at 5%, because I was 13% overall. Then in 2015, after an appeal, that 3% was increased to 16%, giving me another 10% award. By treating them as separate awards, instead of as an overall assessment, it saves the GoC millions of dollars. So in 2015, when VAC I finally decided that I was 25% disabled under the NVC, I was not given the $78000 that a single 25% LSA granted in 2015. Instead, I had only been paid roughly $71000, over the 3 awards.

yes I believe you are correct gunner seen this a few times . not sure if it has changed since but you should receive your award minus the 3,000.00 or whatever it was . somewhere around $36,000.00 .

But my 4% didnít get paid as a 5%. I got like $3000 lol. I asked about that and I was told anything under 5% was not rounded up to 5%. Does that make sense?

In 2010 Your 4% would of been paid out as 5%

then when you got upgraded to 11% you have a difference of 6% that will be paid out as 5%

Then you'll have a 1% sitting around, which will come into play if you every apply or put in another
application and get awarded from the new claim.

Just wondering how the award works. If I received 4% in 2010, now Iíve been diagnosed the full 11%, how would the award work? Thanks
