  1. ALSO,,,,, WE NEED A CHAIRMAN FOR THE BOARD OF APPEALS. THIS POSITION HAS BEEN VACANT SINCE 2010... OVER 6 YEARS AND POTUS HASNT NOMINATED ONE.
  2. my fear is that,,, THIS IS A PROMOTION. BRINGING HIM UP FROM WITHIN IS NOT USUALLY A DRAIN OF SWAMP. hes been there for an already over 500+ days and now gets the Top Job?
  3. if i seperate from my wife for a few months and still give her money........ do i need to tell the va regarding spouce + dependents>? whats the VAs business and What isnt?
  4. kentorambo WON HIS APPEAL.. HOPE HE PUTS HERE ALL HE DID AND HOW... JUST GLAD TO SAY HURRAH!!!! WE NEED GOOD STORIES SO ASK THE GUY
  5. ok so.... little more news about docket #s so when you file your form9 not your nod date not your claim date... its the date you file your form9 for appeal at bva.. not your dro , the bva. then it starts time. i dont mean to sound this way but so much he said she said on here.... the date you sign the form 9 and it is put through the checklists is the day you get a docket. this docket is not disclosed to you the veteran because you probably have an issue with it. thats another point but,.,,, so if you have a few different appeals going and your newest appeal has yet to get a formal form9 then the bva mysteriously is allowed to give you a docket year of the last one. no matter if the others are older... if they roll all into one then you get the last date. some might say who have royalty payments... well its because they are contentions close to each other...FALSE .... EARS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANKLES...... HANDS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ERECTIONS....... ANYWAY..... GET IN ON THE DISAGREEMENTS OF THE DOCKET RULES AND FIGHT.... ITS ABOUT US BUT ALSO THE ONES TO COME.....
  6. FUNNY IF SOMEONE ACTUALLY SAYS THAT THERE ISNT A DIRECT LINE BETWEEN OUR VSO'S AND THESE LABOR UNIONS>>>>>? ID LAUGH IF YOU THINK THERE ISNT A DIRECT LINE OF MONEY, AFGE National Representatives NAGE National Represe NFFE National Representatives NNU National Representatives SEIU National Representatives Select the link below to view spreadsheet o
  7. ID LIKE TO JUST CHIME IN SMALL.. TRY TO SEE IT FROM THERE POINT,,,, NO MONEY IN AN EARLY CASE WON. NOT TOTALLY SURE HOW VSO'S GET THERE YEARLY MONEY BUT IVE SEEN PAY CHECKS THAT ARE AROUND 60K FIR SOME OF THESE REPS... ANYWAY,,,,, THE REAL QUESTION IS,,,, IF ALL OF OUR CLAIMS WENT THROUGH A PROCESS OF ONLY 125 DAYS THEN AN APPEAL OF ONLY ANOTHER YEAR AS THE POINT THEY WANT.... HOW WOULD ANY OF THESE VSO:S MAKE MONEY? IF ALL WAS BEING ACCOMPLISHED THEN THEY WOULD BE USELESS?????? ITS CALLED BUREAUCRACY
  8. SEEMS LIKE NOW A DAYS..... YOUR TIME STARTS WHEN YOU SUBMIT... THAT BEING SAID,,, 2 MONTHS TILL YOU GET A CP EXAM... AFTER CP EXAM ITS 3 WEEKS TILL THEY VA GET RESULTS AND WRITE UP A STUPID LETTER... GRANTING SMALL OR DENIAL. SO AFTER CP ID SAY ITS ABOUT 6 WEEKS. IVE HAD MINE WITHIN 2 WEEKS AFTER CP EXAM. ANYWAY,,, KEEP FIGHTING... YOUR FIRST STEP HAPPEND BE PROUD!!!! YOU SHOULD HEAR A RESPONSE IN FEBRUARY OR NO REASON TO BE LATER THAN EARLY MARCH.... DO NOT FORGET TO APPEAL.
  9. CANT CHIME IN ON PTSD...... BUT,,,,, ONE THING THAT ALWAYS WORKED FOR ME TO SPEED MY CLAIMS UP THOUGH I CANT SAY THEY ENDED UP GRANTED.... ANYWAY... SPEED UP IS TO GO TO VA DOCTORS AND DEMAND A RECORD OF YOUR MEETING. IF THEY SAY NO THEN ASK FOR A DEMAND OF WHY THEY ARE SAYING NO. POINT IS WORK IT.... AFTER YOU DOC APPOINTMENT AT VA GO DIRECT TO RECORDS DEPARTMENT AND FILE FOR COPY... IT WILL TAKE 20 DAYS... THEN YOU GO OVER TO A FAX MACHINE AND SUBMIT NEW EVIDENCE.... ONCE YOU HAVE DONE THAT YOU ARE ALLOWED TO GET AN IRIS EVERY 10 DAYS ON A ADDITIONAL MEDICAL RECORD SUBMITTED....THEY GET SO SICK OF IT THEY GRANT OR DENY... BUT SPEEDS TIME UP. THAT WAS YOUR QUESTION.
  10. the point of the post was to show how the bva answering says 2013 and the bva web page says 2013.... this and many more like it are on the search page without the advancement on docket.
  11. i beg to differ.. i didnt see any advancement. that was my point. if you find an advancement notation here please let me know?? as far as my legal mind can remember,,, any adjudication on a motion MUST BE with the citation.
  12. Citation Nr: 1623704 Decision Date: 06/14/16 Archive Date: 06/29/16 DOCKET NO. 14-17 761 ) IN THE SEARCH DECISIONS AFTER PAGES 5 YOU CAN START TO SEE THAT 2014 DOCKET #S ARE BEING ADJUDICATED AND NOT ,, NOT,, ADVANCED ON DOCKET. BUT THERE WEBSITE SAYS OCTOBER 2013 AND THE PERSON ANSWERING SAYS OCOTBER 2013... THIS ISNT THE ONLY ONE.. THERE ARE A LOT THAT DO NOT SAY ADJUDICATED FOR ADVANCEMENT ...?
  13. TO BE HONEST WITH YOU ALL,, I GOT TO GET THROUGH MY FAT HEAD THAT JUST BECAUSE I HAD A HEARING WITH THE BVA ALREADY BACK IN 2015 THIS DOESNT MATTER!!!! WHAT ONLY MATTERS IS MY DOCKET # AND THAT IS A 2015 #.... SO NO MATTER WHAT EBENES SAYS,,, I GOT ANOTHER 2.5 TO WAIT JUST FOR DECISION... I KEEP FORGETTING THIS.. SORRY FOLKS. I KNOW OTHERS HAVE HORROR STORIES ON THE WAITING GAME THOUGH I MIGHT ADD MINE IS TOO AND THATS WHY I GET SO CONFUSED AND FRUSTRATED/ MY FIRST FILE AND DENIAL IS 2004 AND THIS BVA HEARING WAS IN REGARDS TO IT YET MY DOC# IS 15 ONLY BECAUSE I TOOK SO MUCH TIME GETTING DIFFERENT SOC'S,,SOCC'S AND SUCH.. I SHOULD HAVE WENT STRAIGHT FOR FORM 9...
  14. i have a doc# of 15 as well. the BVA website shows it as they are working on OCT 2013..... THIS IS NUTS...DO YOURSELVES A FAVOR AND TRY FOR ADVANCEMENT ON DOCKET.. WISH I DID,,DOING NOW THOUGH BECAUSE IT SEEMS IVE GOT AT LEAST ANOTHER 2.5 YEARS TO WAIT SO WHAT THE HECK. IM NOT SURE WHY BUT I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT BECAUSE I HAD MY HEARING ALREADY THEY CERTAINLY WOULDNT WAIT THE WHOLE 5 YEARS TO DECIDE... I WAS WRONG.
  15. SO MY QUESTION IS,, IS ANYONE ELSE OUT THERE WAITING ON THE JUDGMENT OR DECISION FROM A JUDGE THAT HAS ALREADY HEARD YOUR CASE? THE REASON I ASK THIS IS BECAUSE,, MY CASE WAS HEARD IN MAY OF 2015 AND EBENNIES SAID AT THE TIME THAT MY APPEAL WAS WAITING FOR A JUDGE TO HEAR IT. FAST FORWARD ALMOST 2 YEARS AND EBENFITS STILL SAYS MY CASE IS WAITING FOR SCHEDULING TO BE HEARD. WHEN I CALL BVA THEY TELL ME THAT MY CASE HAS NOT GONE TO THE JUDGE YET FOR A DECISION... EBENES HAS ME STILL STUCK AT SCHEDULING FOR HEARING DATE. WHAT SHOULD IT SAY ON EBENNIES IF IVE ALREADY HAD MY CASE HEARD AND IM WAITING ON A DECISION?
