Lets Do A Poll..list Your Claim # (Except For The Last 3Or 4 Numbers

Question

I'm thinking that claims that fall under Nehmer that were previously denied or not considered compensatable prior to final rules published on 31Aug2010; have 8 digits to them.

As an example, my claim # is 27267XXX (8 digits)

If they were using your SSn; claim number would have 9 digits.

If they were using your serial #, it would have 7 digits.

The above is just my opinion...

Thomas this is no big deal to me but if it helps my claim is and has always been my SS. I have been on disability only since 03.

I was 60% for cad secondary to DM2 and just increased to 100% P&T nothing has change since day one of my claim.

If your claim is only 8 digits when was it applied to your claim? That should pretty much answer the question.

Again this is no big deal to me and I apologize if I got you worked up on anything. I know you are just trying to help.

Good luck on your claim!

Same here, claim # is SSN, always has been, and is on the claim denied in 2006. Same # on letter says claim is on hold until presumtives are law.

I'm thinking the only way to determine if you are Nehmer eligible is to wait till the rating comes in early November.

I am assuming that any Claim number is the same as your existing file number, at least that is the way it appears on the documantation I have received. I have an 8 digit file number that was extablished back in 1969 and it has never changed. The only thing different is that prior to the file number it says "In reply, refer to: 326/pre/ab" and then lists my 8 diget file number. Of course I have no idea what the 326/pre/ab stands for.

I wonder now that they have published the rule if they will begin processing and rating the claims, or will they continue to sit on them pending the 60 day CRA?

I called the 800 # last week and even got a second opinion from a second call-because I had no formal letters from the VA yet on Nehmer.

The second call not only confirmed the recent claim was sent to Nehmer Co-ordinators in Phila already but when I asked status of a CUE claim I have had pending for 6 years they gave me the name,and phone number of the Nehmer co- ordinator in Phila who has both of these claims as the CUE claim too falls under Nehmer.

My claim is unusual in many respects so this specific co-ordinator is probably just handling AO death claims.

If you were denied in the past on a date that conforms to the Nehmer class Action, and have proven AO exposure, there is good chance VA has pulled the past denial by now.

I was denied in the past but sent a formal claim in anyhow becase I diont think any vet should depend on VA accurately pulling all past denials that now fall under Nehmer.

NVLSP , in the new VBM advises that too.

They were the lawyers who won Nehmer.

Jalexand-"In reply, refer to: 326/pre/ab"

This is te numerical code for your VARO. I think the PRE might mean pre regulation and the ab is the initials of whoever is working on your claim.

    • 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.

    • I have a 30% hearing loss and 10% Tinnitus rating since 5/17.  I have Meniere's Syndrome which was diagnosed by a VA facility in 2010 yet I never thought to include this in my quest for a rating.  Meniere's is very debilitating for me, but I have not made any noise about it because I could lose my license to drive.  I am thinking of applying for additional compensation as I am unable to work at any meaningful employment as I cannot communicate effectively because of my hearing and comprehension difficulties.  I don't know whether to file for a TDUI, or just ask for additional compensation.  My county Veterans service contact who helped me get my current rating has been totally useless on this when I asked her for help.  Does anyone know which forms I should use?  There are so many different directions to proceed on this that I am confused.  Any help would be appreciated.  Vietnam Vet 64-67.
