    • You are rapidly learning the value of Hadit.com.  So much knowledge on here, nothing the VA says or does that some Vet here didn't already go through, or, in the case of the Honorable Ms. Berta, Vet's widow 2X, got screwed over, and then over come and beat back into submission. Never think for one second that you are getting or taking from another Veteran.  Know this, you are as worthy, or more than worthy of every penny coming to you. I feel slighted and aggrieved everyday, by the VA, but not one second goes by that I ever think another Veteran is getting mine.  All of you 100%ers here are getting the least owed to you, and none of that belongs to any other.  Eventually my time will come, but till that day, I will rejoice with each of you as your ships come in. No matter what darkness I face, no matter how far out in left field I end up, I will never count one penny against any, and more so, wish you double what you get, and more so beyond that. If any were to question you, then they don't understand, and is not for them to know.  We each, here, and those not here yet, have given of ourselves, and had taken from us, parts that can never be reclaimed or made whole. I struggle every day, to find my own worthiness(which was lost over 20 years ago), but one thing stands true, I, and many others on here, will tell you that you are not taking anything from us.  And even if you struggle to come to terms with the idea of being worthy and worth it, you are.  Never lose sight of that. I forget this all the time, along with everything else that I can't remember, or forgot that I even knew it. That day you signed up and swore the oath to defend, you became more than worthy.  This goes for all the rest of you, too.
    • oh hamslice you are something  - below is what I found on the RACC   1Only sensitive files belonging to current and former VBA employees, relatives of VBA employees, Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs), and high government officials should be transferred to the RACC. Sensitive files belonging to Veterans Health Administration (VHA) employees, National Cemetery Administration (NCA) employees, attorney fee cases, and cases deemed sensitive due to media issues should be maintained at the local ROJ. 2The St. Paul Regional Office is the primary RACC; Milwaukee and Philadelphia Regional Offices serve as RACCs as well.  http://vetaffairs.sd.gov/veteransserviceofficers/Resources/Fast Letters/FL13-021.pdf
    • Ok, I got a partial decision last week.  Along with the decision letter, I got the usual stuff, the 4107 (your rights to appeal our decision), 21-0958 (instructions) and the "Where to send your written correspondence" piece of paper. Also, I got a piece of paper that says, NOTICE St. Paul Restricted Access Claim Center, cover letter. Apparently, if I send a appeal or nod, I'm supposed to use this cover letter?  I think?  Not sure? First, that (St Paul) doesn't jive with the where to send paper. And second, am I special, or something?  Probably something, Hamslice    
    • The only bad thing about all the different kinds of insurance is, esp. the VA, they are going to ask for that information every time. I bet they can slow the whole insurance industry down too, including your timely payments which may make you delinquent in your payments. Being over insured is stupid, but the paperwork aspect is a huge cost that I never see considered, esp. with the VA. If there was something backed by USAA (auto insurance), that would make it easy for me and I'd pick them. The VA may not actually be bad for primary care, except you need physician training, lol, and emergency care would not yield even to those who had physician training. A huge problem with the VA healthcare is they hear, see, or speak no evil; and that ultimately may cut their usefulness completely out of the picture (100%) once SSDI is obtained. That is definitely one BIG problem with VA healthcare and why you see so many Sad Sacks in the VA Hospital.

I received a rating of 80% service connected with 20% unemployability. I was told by regional I was fine and did not need to do a NOD. This was back in 2007. I recently watched Chris Attig's video on YouTube entitled "6 Reasons to Keep Pursuing VA Claims and Appeals AFTER you reach 100". Now I realize I made a mistake listening to them. Can I appeal and if so how?

I am glad you mentioned Chris Attig as he is an excellent veteran lawyer.

I was told the same thing by a former vet rep in 1998 on a vastly different issue, an award letter.

He had nothing to do with the award at all but was thrilled that he could take credit for it because I had dumped the DAV and moved my POA to him, and within a few months the award letter came.

By 2003 when I re opened my claim, the older 1998 decision kept bothering me and I pulled it out and discovered it had 3 CUEs in it . They were eventually awarded. What Chris says in this video and the hard copy version here at hadit is so true.

Many reps, when you get TDIU or 100% want you to walk away and be happy with it.

 "Can I appeal and if so how?"  That decision might be correct and besides the appeal deadline has passed.

You can file a new claim, if you have an additional service connectable disability that might put you into any of the 6 criteria Chris mentions in his article/video.

Or if you have the older  rating sheet, and can scan and attach it here ( cover C file # etc prior to scanning it) there could be a major legal error in it.








and the video is here:
