  23. VA Scandals

    Shreddergate and other scandals

    On the 13th of October, 2008, VA Watchdog dot Org broke the story about documents found in shredder bins at the VA's Detroit Regional Office.

    A number of those documents were critical to veterans' disability claims.

    As the story unfolded, VA finally began to release information on the incident and we learned that more than one Regional Office was involved in this shredder scandal.

    The VA's Office of Inspector General (VAOIG) is investigating.

    VA has instituted new guidelines regarding handling of documents.

    This for instructional purposes to direct you on how to file your claim. When we were in the service they told you when to get up, when to eat, what weapon you were going to use, and where to go. 

    When you got out no one told you how to deal with the VA and how to file for the benefits that you earned by your service. 

    This section of the forum I have been wanting to set up for just this reason

    • VA Compensation Issue - What Does It Mean?
      Question Posed: So my appeal was closed on July 15. I haven’t received my letter yet, but under the issues tab on va.gov, where it used to say the items I was appealing, it now says “compensation issue.” Is that normally what it says just when they close the review? Has anyone seen any other terminology in that section?


           Compensation issue simply means your claim is for disability compensation as opposed to some other kind of claim Maybe an upgrade for discharge for example. Most claims that are submitted are designated compensation issues. Nothing to worry about.

      Sometimes you have more to say that doesn't fit a community discussion. Maybe you are passionate about fishing, cooking, reading, it's your choice. The same guidelines apply to the blogs that apply to the community. The two biggest are no politics and no religion. Facebook or someplace else is the place for that, it is not here. Creating your blog allows you to expand on what you have to say.

      Do you find yourself typing the same content again and again?

      Create a blog post with that content and then all you have to do is link to the blog post.

      This gives you two main advantages

      You only have to type the content once, a great time saver.

      If your content changes due to law or regulations or for whatever reason, you only have to update your blog, and wherever you link to that post will be linking to the most current information.

      Check out the video below.

      How do I upload evidence online to support my disability claim? 

      If you’ve filed a claim for disability compensation, you can continue uploading more evidence for up to one year to support your claim. Evidence may include supporting documents like medical test results, doctor’s reports, and other records. Upload your evidence online now.

      If you’re waiting for a decision on your disability claim, you can upload evidence to support that claim using our claim status tool.

      Upload evidence using our claim status tool

      Note: For any other type of document you’d like to submit online to us, please use the QuickSubmit tool through AccessVA.

      If I filed a standard disability claim, when should I upload evidence?

      Upload your evidence as soon as you can.

      You can continue uploading documents for up to 1 year from the date we receive your claim. But, if you don’t provide any evidence or give us the information we need to help you get evidence within 30 days, we may make a decision on your claim earlier.

      If we decide your claim early, you’ll still have the rest of the 1-year period to provide more information or evidence.

      What happens if I upload more evidence after I’ve submitted a fully developed claim?

      We’ll remove your disability claim from the Fully Developed Claims program and process it as a standard claim.

      If we decide your claim earlier than 1 year from the date we received the claim, you’ll still have the rest of the year to provide any additional information or evidence.

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
