Ok, thanks. Simple enough.
By the way, the claim is in "preparation for decision" (the C&P was 5 days ago), so should I submit it through Ebenefits (where it allows me to upload documents for the claim) OR should I mail it certified-mail to the RO?
the PCP opinion could work, but at the same time, I see two many ways for a va rater to get around it. A Independent Medical Expert Opinion along with the PCP opinion, does not give a va rater any wiggle room. Sure they could still deny it, but as soon as it reaches BVA it would be approve, because of the IMO.
IMO probably could save you about 3-4 years (that's my opinion)
My name is Keli and I'm an investigative reporter in Houston, looking to talk with veterans about their experience with the disability claims process. Whether you've had difficulty navigating the system to get the proper percentage or you felt it was easy, let me know. Also, if you're eligible to apply for benefits but have chosen not to, I'm interested in talking with you too. I'm especially looking for Houston-area vets, but anyone in Texas that can help would be great.
Hope you can help me learn more about the system and the ways it needs to be improved. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or respond to this thread.
