I AGREE WITH RiCHARD1954
I TELL ALL VETERANS THAT GO TO THEIR C&P EXAMS TO LISTEN CAREFULLY AT THE EXAMINER .
SOME TIMES THE EXAMINERS READ OFF THE COMPUTER ABOUT YOUR CONDITION AND DON'T MENTION IT TO THE VETERAN AS THE EXAM CONTINUES.
SO ITS A GOOD IDEAL TO ASK THE EXAMINER SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
Excuse me Dr but did you read the part my Dr mention about my** bla bla bla? sometimes we have to spoon feed these speechless examiners.
Examiners Veterans need to watch for
1, SPEECHLESS EXAMINERS
2. DON'T ASK MANY QUESTIONS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR CONDITION YOUR CLAIMING.
3. IF ANY EXAMINERS SAYS TO THE VETERAN ITS NOT ME THAT MAKES THE DECISION.
VETERANS NEED TO BE VERY AWARE OF THESE TYPE EXAMINERS.
REMEMBER TO SPEAK UP FOR YOURSELF AND TAKE YOUR SPOUSE WITH YOU MOST EXAMINERS WILL LET THEM COME IN WITH YOU IF THE EXAMINER DON'T ......>THEN BE AWARE.
Of your list of examiners to look out for my examiner was #1 and #2.
My examiner barely spoke during the exam. He said tell me about your back and nothing more. The only words he uttered were when he gave me instructions for his bogus ROM exam and to push forward and backward on my legs.
He also did not ask a single question. Not one.
Afternoon folks from sunny Palm Beach, it sure doesn't feel Christmas(y) here, but another day in paradise!
Got an Email on Ebenefits/va.gov this morning telling me my original decision date for my already SC claim increase has been moved from 12/22/2019 to 03/14/2020.
ALL evidence was submitted, including results from C&P exams, and accepted back on 11/18/2019, as per conversation with VA toll free number.
Two of the increase claims dated back to 11/20/1990, and one increase claim dates back to 03/18/2010. These we all included in this claim dated above.
VA also informed me on Ebenefits that nothing else was needed or required.
I've gotten all kinds of opinions on why the delay is taking place; everything from "It's the holidays" to "The VA has cut back on the number of people working on these claims"
Got one interesting email this morning here from a seasoned hadit.com member who suggested that "The amount of retro involved is more than likely the reason for delay.."
Is there a long drawn-out process that has to happen when paying out retro? More retro=longer decision time?
All input welcome.

Thanks Berta and Vetquest for your recent responses. I agree with you both 100% and I should never have followed some of their advice or I would be further along now. My last post on their forum was also dismissed and locked when former DRO Cruiser did not like my statement about my winning a CUE appeal as a pro se veteran before the CAVC vet court in 2005.
I feel very sorry for younger and or newer vets seeking their advice on their one sided forum.
I was not banned but I made a statement that they disagreed with. My statement was merely that the RO said I was going to be reevaluated for a reduction in a in a rating decision. I was piled on by no fewer than five moderators that belittled me and told me it was not the truth. I cited the actual decision and was further berated. They were very demeaning and condescending.
Just to add, that 100% veterans are also entitled to other benefits in some states, like a permanent license plate that does not incur taxes. You should be able to get more information at the local city or county offices. I just needed to take my benefits verification letter from e-bennies to the county and city offices in Tennessee.
