I have a cry for help and I apologize if this is not the place. My husband, a Vietnam Vet, is terminal. He suffers from bilateral hearing damage and COPD with a direct nexus to the boiler room where he was exposed to toxic fumes from petroleum black oil and asbestos. The VA granted his hearing disability as service related and rated him 0% ! Denied COPD. We then appealed it. We had the appeal in August 2018 where the judge remanded it, said the evidence for the COPD had a direct nexus to service and asked for a current hearing evaluation since the last one was in Jan. Of 2015. It is in the record that my husband is terminal and end stage. We have heard nothing as of yet. Is there anything I can do ?
I have a question My claim was denied by VA for an service connected injury I ask it to go to the Board of Appeals.It went there before, but was remanded back to the VA for more evidence. Now VA sent me a letter of denying my claim for a increase I ask for it to go to the Board. This has been ongoing for 8 years now.If they approve my appeal how far back do they back pay me.
From the day you filed for it or medical evidence supports the claim after initial filing.
