Anyone Know The Law That Requires Va To Notify

Question

I am in the process of writing out my form 9 for the BVA appeals process. I was just wondering if any of the bright and inquiring minds here on hadit might help me with the law I should quote that may help me.

I am trying to point out the VA's failure to notify. I need the CFR that says they have to notify me of DEA benefit eligibility.

HELP!

38 U.S.C. Chapter 35 and regulations at 38 CFR 3.807 establish educational benefits

I'm not sure this will be any help, but eligibility for DEA can be found in § 3.807 Dependents' educational assistance; certification. You might also look around in the area of § 21.3002 Administration of Survivors' and Dependents' Educational Assistance Program. I was unable to find any regulation that required notification of eligibility. You might find something in M21-1MR, Part III, Subpart iii, Chapter 6, Section C.Good luck!

Do you mean they awarded 100% P & T but completely failed to award Chapter 35 DEA?

I have topic here called Preparing an I-9 and it contains the wording of a caveat that NVLSP suggests using on the I-9 form.

Hey Berta :o

It has to do with the DEA benefits they have denied me, that I have posted about. I'm using the Cypert vs. Peake case, but it is now at the BVA stage. I contacted mrs. Cypert's lawyer that got her DEA benefits granted at teh CAVC, but he won't take my case until it goes to CAVC. So I am doing the Form 9 right now and trying to attack from as many angles as I can.

In my husbands rating letter in 1996 it grants DEA benefits for dependents, however this ran out in 2006 and I married him in 2009. The thing is in the letter, it states that only 3 of his five children were eligible for DEA and it didn't mention anything about his spouse being eligible even though he was married at the time. So I am trying to point out they didn't advise him his spouse was eligible, and I know there is a law around here somewhere about the VA's duty to inform and assist, but I can't find it, in relation to DEA benefits.

I would be very interested to see the "Preparing of an I-9" info that you mentioned though. I have until the end of June to get teh form 9 in to the BVA, so I have time to get it right. Unfortunately I have been unable to find a VSO that knows anything about DEA benefits here in New Mexico, they know the standard stuff, but I seem to know more about this situation than they do, so I probably better off doing it myself anyway.

I m going to request a video hearing, because I was informed the standard BVA hearings in Albuquerque VARO have a huge wait list.

Any help would be great, this is the first form 9 I have done on my own.

hawkfire,

Here's a link to M21-1MR for you.

Click on it and scroll down to Chapter 5 - Appeals,

then scroll down to Section E - Filing a Substantive Appeal.

I think it has most of everything you are looking for.

Hope this helps a vet.

      If you are new to hadit and have DIC questions it would help us tremendously if you can answer the following questions right away in your first post.

      What was the Primary Cause of Death (# 1) as listed on your spouse’s death certificate?

      What,if anything, was listed as a contributing cause under # 2?

      Was an autopsy done and if so do you have a complete copy of it?

       It can be obtained through the Medical Examiner’s office in your locale.

      What was the deceased veteran service connected for in his/her lifetime?

      Did they have a claim pending at death and if so what for?

      If they died from anything on the Agent Orange Presumptive list ( available here under a search) when did they serve and where? If outside of Vietnam, what was their MOS and also if they served onboard a ship in the South Pacific what ship were they on and when? Also did they have any major  physical  contact with C 123s during the Vietnam War?

      And how soon after their death was the DIC form filed…if filed within one year of death, the date of death will be the EED for DIC and also satisfy the accrued regulation criteria.

    • If you are a Veteran, represented by MOPH, you need to know that MOPH is closing down its offices.  This can have a drastic effect on your claim, and it wont be good for you.  You likely need to get a new representative.  

      This station confirms MOPH is closing its doors:

    • Examining your service medical records...
      * First thing I do after receiving a service medical record is number each page when I get to the end I go back and add 1 of 100 and so on.

      * Second I then make a copy of my service medical records on a different color paper, yellow or buff something easy to read, but it will distinguish it from the original.

      * I then put my original away and work off the copy.

      * Now if you know the specific date it's fairly easy to find. 

      * If on the other hand you don't know specifically or you had symptoms leading up to it. Well this may take some detective work and so Watson the game is afoot.

      * Let's say it's Irritable Syndrome 

      * I would start page by page from page 1, if the first thing I run across an entry that supports my claim for IBS, I number it #1, I Bracket it in Red, and then on a separate piece of paper I start to compile my medical evidence log. So I would write Page 10 #1 and a brief summary of the evidence, do this has you go through all the your medical records and when you are finished you will have an index and easy way to find your evidence. 

      Study your diagnosis symptoms look them up. Check common medications for your IBS and look for the symptoms noted in your evidence that seem to point to IBS, if your doctor prescribes meds for IBS, but doesn't call it that make those a reference also.

    • How to get your questions answered on the forum
      Do not post your question in someone else's thread. If you are reading a topic that sounds similar to your question, start a new topic and post your question. When you add your question to a topic someone else started both your questions get lost in the thread. So best to start your own thread so you can follow your question and the other member can follow theirs.

      All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

      Tips on posting on the forums.

      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’.


      Knowledgable 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 huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to 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.



      Leading to:

      Post clear questions and then give background info on them.



      Examples:

      A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?



      I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?




      B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?


      I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?





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

      Note:

      Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

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