    • Thanks everyone! i received the BBE today, In my case, the BWE......all it states is my current 30% rating and that they need the DBQ for bladder and they are ready to make the award decision.  it just says deferred on PTSD/MST and bladder until C&P exam for bladder is complete.  i received the retro pay in the bank today.  All i can do is wait now.  I want to also ask the question about grinding of teeth that has been caused by PTSD and stress. I want to also claim that. What do i do for that? i have a private dentist that confirmed that.  i guess they will want a claim for that, but i am not doing a damn thing until all this PTSD stuff is done.  Also, they said in the BWE that they considered all evidence pertaining to the MST (buddy letters, service records, medical records and all. the list was 2 pages long of stuff they are considering}...i wanted to ask if i should go to my private urologist that wrote the letter for my SSDI if she would write a letter confirming that my PTSD has made the bladder condition 100 times worse. if she writes that letter, will that be something i should bring to the C&P exam? i already have two letters from her, but they don't mention PTSD.... what does everyone think? @Gastone @Buck52 @Berta i truly value all your opinions and sorry if i have been jumpy! i need help with this whole process.  Love to you all, Floridanurse
    • this wasn't a cue claim right  as some say they won lately just show evidence in the decision where VA say a CUE was committed  and its in all CUE claims decisions  I'VE seen which ant many this topic was for CUE claims correct this is not one. A lot of people win cues but cant post a decision where VA say IT was a CUE in the decision and to me its either lying or you just forgot like this vet lie for a purple heart and benefits you just don't know everybody who to trust. People will lie and so can I but what can I win with a lie paper work proves everything. jmho
    • SSD will often send a person for what they call a Second Opinion exam and what we call a C&P exam.  They are just as tricky as the VA.  The key phrase in a SSD claim  is "  claimant is totally disabled from all work for at least one year".    SSD only cares that you can't do any work and that you have enough quarters paying SSA to meet the requirements.    They are not concerned with service connection vs non service connection like the VA.  It is routine to have to hire a lawyer to win your SSD claim.  Some of us get lucky and get it the first time around but are in a minority.  If you can win a SSD claim based entirely on your military service then you should be able to get at least TDIU from the VA.
    • So, I woke up to encouraging news from e-benefits. It still says gathering dust, but it's asking for  two things from me: One is to update my Finacial institution immediately. We can only pay EFT or pre-paid Credit Card. The second was to update some form that deals with my dependants.  It looks like something is happening. I will post redacted copies when I get to my desktop later today. I also owe a copy of my Dr's nexus letter. I hope some of this helps other legitimate claim veterans.

Dro Review

12 posts in this topic

Hello All Hope All Is Well. I have recently filed a NOD for an Increase that was less than Favorable. My Question is when you file the NOD and request a DRO Review what is the Time frame or is there a time Frame for VARO to assist and gather the necessary information to process or make a decision on the claim. Before if the new decision is again not favorable and you move forward to BVA. Under Rules and Regulations there Is a Time frame as for when you have a limited time to file on any of your claims. such as 120 days or 90 days and so forth. I need some kind of clarification Thank You .

Note: I might have misread your question. The senario below is a situation where both the initial decision and the DRO decision were "no."

Just my thoughts; my DRO decision was negative and I have submitted new and material evidence which I "hope" is reviewed before BVA action. I wouldn't count on the VARO being much help in "assisting and gathering." I've found that if I don't do it personally, then it just doesn't get done.

The timeframe for the VARO receiving new and material evidence is from the date of DRO denial to the date the BVA reviews the case--that is my opinion. My new evidence was received in February and I have been submitting documents as recently as last week. They will send you letters (e.g., Vasquez-Flores, etc.) telling you about getting evidence submitted within 30 days, but it has been my experience that as long as the case has not gone to the BVA you can keep submitting.

My DRO decision was 31 Jan 08, almost seven months ago. I don't look for any type decision for many months in the future.

Others may have different opinions--this is just mine.

Good luck with your claim!

Ron

For me I had a DRO Hearing in 2 months and a DRO decision the same day as the Hearing. The answer was No.

I did not file a Form 9 just a letter asking for a Hearing. Had the Hearing in under 2 months and the denial the same day althought not to my face. He just mailed it to me the same day.
