      Well I do apologize for asking  and looks like that your mind is made up. You did come to the Hadit site and asked for advice and that's what we do and best of all, it's free. If supplemental is your decision then by all means, go for it. It's all a crap shoot. 

      Everyone is different, I may have taken the HLR so that at least a different set of eyes is looking at my claim. More experienced eyes. Let them find the error and return it back to the AOJ for corrections. Maybe at that time, AOJ realizes that they did not properly go through your records. Oh and by the way, you may have more new evidence to add such as and imo. 

      I don't know. I could be wrong. I am here for educational purpose as well. 

      Whodat,

      No apologies needed.  You have given me something to think about.  I think my evidence to win is already in the claim, and a different set of eyes may see it differently.

      And, according to the cheat sheat (20-0998) they send with the decision, I can do either one first and then do the other.  And, I have time.

      pac,

      Not trying to get SMC, as I don't think I have a path for that, but just want it SC'd incase that is what takes me out,

      It will probably fall out to whether I can get my C-File in time.  I don't need it for a HLR.  

       

    • Nope, I get it. Just laying out that normally thats what *should* happen. Those 4142's, though- SUPER IMPORTANT. We cannot request records from private providers without them, and signed. Period. BLUF. Unless you get your records yourself, and I mean not just the page of 3 that support what you are claiming, but at least a few months or more of treatment history. If your provider charges for them? VA doesn't pay for it. I usually send a letter if I see the 'reject' from our vendor that does all the direct records requests so the veteran knows that we don't have them because the provider charges. That's what should be done every time but I catch it sometimes, and ive probably forgotten a few, too. 

      Also- food for thought- don't always throw the kitchen sink in with your 8940- unless you are literally collectively filing for all the stuff that impedes your employability because you need to. Otherwise, later, when you try to apply for housebound or something if those conditions are lumped in with IU already they don't count towards the 60% you need for SMC's higher than SMC-K. Try to leave some stuff out in the background that could potentially get worse to file for later.

      Supplementals, you can add additional evidence, HLRs, you can’t add additional evidence and as for Direct BVA appeal, it depends on the route you want to take. The thing to consider is that your claim was just denied by the RO and if you file a supplemental or an HLR, it stays at the RO and most likely will be rubber stamped as a denial. In the past when a veteran would file a NOD at the RO, the VA rep. would just walk it over or call a DRO down to ask them what they thought and then it would get denied. They don’t like over stepping someone they work with. Don’t get me wrong there has been some Supplementals and HLRs granted but they are very, very rare. Your claim your call. Here at hadit.com we have seen it a lot and I mean a lot that it is just rubber stamped as denied wasting the veteran’s time. Even a quick denial is still a denial.  Good or bad the RO is doing their job; I try to tell veterans to do their own homework. You have to figure it out on your own or get some legal help. Hamslice, you’re currently 100% and anything over that will push you closer to an SMC payment and in my opinion the RO doesn’t want that.

    • yes i agree with you brokensolider I was just letting this VETERAN KNOW  TO SEND IN ALL RECORDS that will help support is claim  some times they (RATERS) do slip up at the VA  and not find his SS Records  or be late with them causing his claim to be delayed.

      Get all Dr's Reports from your VAMC make copies,

      Find the report that your Dr or DOCTOR'S MENTION in there report that you are unable to work due to your disability  that occured while in military...military  location date it occured,  but you don't really need that but it helps ease their minds knowing you have that evidence when they make the decision. your DD 214 Should have your service dates and locations you served.

         you will a Dr to say in his report that he has exmined you and HE/SHE Doctor will need to say that 

      ''due to your disabilty that occured while you wer ein the military or when you first became disabled.''(these reports should have the dates and the Dr' creditinals and your SS $ ON THEM  SOME WHERE. MAKE SURE YOUR DR IS QUAILFIED TO RENDER A MEDICAL STATEMENT 

      MD;s AND SPECIALIST ARE GREAT TO USE  watch out for> THE NURSE PRACTIONERS  or P.A, Are not so good  but if they are certifeld in the field of medcine  thatclaiming   your disability is. then yes they will accept their medical reports.

      Underline or color highlite   these Dr's statments   make your self copies  and send in with your TDIU Form or ask your VSO to submit these statements, along with medical reports that you have from the past 

      Also if you have any SOCIAL SECURITY medical reports   or if you are receiving SS  THAT YOU ARE RECEIVING DUE TO YOUR MILITARY EVENT  OR INJURY THAT CAUSED YOU TO BE DISABLED.add those records in with your TDIU Claim.(SEND THOSE IN TOO)

        The main thing a Veteran will need is his Dr saying in his report ''I have examine Veteran Smith and read his medical records and it is my  findings this Veteran can't work or do any type of sedentary work due to his disability that he says happend/occured  in the military .

      It will help if you have thos records too  VSR VETERN SERVICE RECORDSM MEDICAL RECORDS THAT THE INNCEDENT OR EVENT HAPPY  ON YEAR MONTH AND DATE  Name of your company commander and your unit and your lay statement   it can help your Statement ''In support of claim/claim's

      KEEP ALL YOUR PAPER WORK IN A NEAT FORM WHEN YOU SEND IT IN IF YOU USE THE MAIL SERVICE   OTHER WISE ELECTRONIALLY FILE in order  if you have all your paper work neat, it helps them to read what your claiming a lot better   vs this record or records  mixed in with your claim

      I may be leaving something out others will chime in  to help you

      Good Luck and welcome to Hadit

      We automatically request SSA records for a 8940- its part of the intake process. Its one of the first things that is done and if its NOT done the raters do it and if they find them and you didn't then you get cited for it.
