    • By the way, in case anyone needs to know what the form looks like:   
    • 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?  
    • Hey Andyman, 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 krabon@khou.com or respond to this thread. Thanks! Keli

Cavc Remand

15 posts in this topic

Just wondering if any one knows whats happens after CAVC remands my case?

What are the odds the VA will pay up?

Will it take another 5 years before i hear something back?

If someone could review my case and give me an idea what to expect next.

Alexx,

Did they remand with instructions?

It goes back to your VARO or sometimes the AMC if it came from there. Rermands are supposed to have some kind of priority.

alexx,

You can post your case minus the personal info such as name, SSA number, etc...

and probably get some responses on it.

I am moving this topic to the Claims/Benefits Research Forum.

I am echoing what Mike asked-is there anything they asked the VA to do that you could do yourself?

Often a CAVC remand can open the door for more evidence- a CAVC remand is far better then a final CAVC denial.

Odd thing about CAVC-I had a case there many years ago and immediately got phone calls and letters from lawyers.I asked one of them how he learned of my case. As soon as a case goes on the CAVC docket it becomes public info with name, address, etc of the claimant.

All cases are listed there at the CAVC web site with this information.

It would be great if we could read the case-you can cover or edit the personal info to scan and post here as Carlie suggested-or if we have your last name and/or the CAVC docket number we can read it off the CAVC web site.

The CAVC site has no C file or SSA numbers at all- just our name and address.I think if you advise the CAVC prior to their preparing the Docket that you want to remain anonymous, they will still post the case but maybe just under an initial or something.

Did you have legal representation at the CAVC?

I helped a lawyer with his first CAVC case.He got a remand for the vet and was thrilled with that.

The claim was not a good one at all and I found errors that the BVA made that caused the remand.Legal errors by the BVA that had to be resolved.

With the remand however- if the vet could send more evidence - then there was a slight possibility of success.This case was not remanded on merit but on error.

Still a remand at this level is not easy and I commend you for getting one from the CAVC.

sorry it has taken so long to get back but this is my Case Number:09-636 at the cavc.

Any help would be greatfull.

A lil side note: I opened a new claim (same conditions) at the same time i appealed to the cavc. The RO did give me another 10% for the left ankle(not sure if that helps or hurts)
