  1. Yes, it has been going on for a long time. My first denial from VA came in 1985. I have a 3.156(c) claim in to start the process to fix that one. I get to go to a C&P this Thursday for that one. That should be interesting, since the injuries are now over 36 years old. I am printing out a ton of records for the examiner. I imagine the VA will tell them to just look at the past year of records. I don't see the purpose of a lawyer if you are able to work on your own case. I imagine some people can't, or just don't want to. I couldn't wait to get a lawyer when I became eligible. The DAV
  2. When it rains, it pours. It will get better. Can you use voice recognition on your system? I use Apple and it is very good for typing what you say to it.
  3. I am not 100 percent sure that I followed this. I am almost positive that if a private C&P is done you have to get it from the VA after the VA gets it. I believe I asked at one of my private(contract) C&P exams and was told I would have to get a copy from the VA.
  4. I don't know anything about what you are asking about. Asknod.org has a lot of information about this.
  5. I wasn't asking about the HLR lane. I was asking about the supplemental lane with new evidence. I got my TDIU from a HLR review.
  6. I doubt it very seriously. I sent the VA these records, 2020-01-16 SSA Earnings Redacted. 2020-01-16 SSA Earnings Redacted.pdf
  7. The best I can remember the same individual did my lumbar and cervical at the same time.
  8. The below discussion has a lot of that information in it. I am seeking June of 2000. The last time I ever worked. Yes, multiple times. In 2003, with an effective date of 2001, when I first received the decision that had a combined 70% and one 40%. In 2007 when I received SSDI solely for SC disabilities. In 2009 after the VA sent a denial to my old address that I hadn't lived at for over three years, and yes they were well aware of the new address. All VA mail for three years had been coming to the new address. In 2020 when I tried to submit a CUE on their decisi
  9. I have attached my vocational assessment. I have attached my latest denial so you can see what is going on. Should I send this to the VA as a supplemental claim with new evidence to request an earlier effective date for my TDIU or just go straight to the BVA. Thanks 3-VA vocational assessment Redacted.pdf 2020-10-28 VA Decision Redacted for Hadit.pdf
  10. I asked the travel person about that and was told they couldn't see it. The idea that it will sit in manual review without any kind of notice to the veteran is probably another IT screw up when creating the system. But on the bright side the BTSSS creators can charge the VA millions more to add this feature.
  11. I remember those days. I am glad I don't have to stand at the pay window line any more. But I can understand how not getting travel right away is a real hardship for some who used to count on it to get back home. I am glad to hear you complained to higher ups. Everybody should be doing that and not taking this crap from the VA. They are there to take care of us. If they don't like that then they should find employment else where. I am all for everyone complaining as high up as it takes and as long as it takes to get everything corrected.
  12. I asked about that when talking to travel and they said no. There was no mention of it on the page they sent me announcing the change.
