Thanks for your input Buck and Berta. For some reason the VA must have some significance involving what they call a "certified" decision after 30 days:
"If you’ve reviewed the claim decision and still think VA is wrong, you should provide additional evidence to support your condition(s) with your NOD. The claim decision becomes certified after 30 days, but it isn’t final until one year after the date of the decision. You can file a Notice of Disagreement at any time up to one year from the date of decision."
On the other hand this could be part of a new initiative concerning the gender-bending foot gynecologist that Berta tried to warn me about.
If a veteran is awarded entitlement to aid and attendance for a disability that is rated less than 100%, but is rated for multiple other claims individually rated at 60%, 60%, and 100%..... would the fact that he/she was awarded entitlement to aid and attendance for a disability that is rated less than 100% hinder entitlement to full and half steps above SMC - L?
oh yea it is showing as a hardship claim. I had to fill out some paperwork and send them documents of my bills and stuff, so that is why i was curious on why they are acting so hush hush. I had submitted that stuff to the BVA so i dont know if i have to send them something as well to the regional office to get the ball rolling.
