Any Advice on a QTC Examination for Housebound Status! I just received this letter today saying that I have an appointment scheduled next week! Do I have to travel all the way to Washington State from Oregon for the QTC Exam? Seems like a long way to go for a QTC examination! It is a 500 mile round trip.
I have found all documents to support my claims and they're in my possession. Yes. I have been doing a lot of research!
Interesting note*: My prior claims were lost for 28 yrs and then for some reason they found out that I had lost my place in some docket and every time it came up it would be shuffled back to the bottom! Isn't that illegal? (explanation from a VFW person at the Seattle VBA!)
This is just all really weird, but I am not giving up! Thanks Everybody!
Since all of my submittals to the VFW in Portland have disappeared, Can I do an intention to file a claim? And how should I go about it.
Thank you Everyone!
I seems that the past two VSO'S in 3 months have resigned from their post. All my submittals have disappeared. I guess I am ready to file my self and have the VFW represent me at the hearings. I guess these guys are really busy! I got this! Peace
It may be "coincidence" that your submittals have disappeared after these 2 VSO's resigned, or it may not be. You need to get to the bottom of this..probably call or send an IRIS email and ask them just as you stated.
Hopefully you can resubmit those. It doesnt make sense that they would delete your submittals after a VSO leaves, however, "Stranger things" have happened at VA so I am rarely suprised when new stuff happens at VA.
They just don't care or are entirely inept! Why lie to me instead of telling me the Truth!
Can I submit all of the forms and file them myself?
Just today I received notification that my disabled daughter and my two grand children can not be claimed as dependents!
This guy, David Lowe with the Portland VFW. Told me that that I did not have to adopt my grandchildren to claim them as dependents. I pay all the rent, food, car bills, everything for this household! This is just frustrating me to no end!
Does anyone know how two change the topic to another topic? I'm trying to supply some information from the BVA about re recent decision! Thanks
I had posted a question about an appeal that I had where the Veterans Lawl Judge had retired. I did not request a new hearing on the advice of my Advocate the VFW. I finally received a decision and have that enclosed it here.
The VA has agreed to grant me service connection for my lower back and to send into remand the issue of my left foot neuroma.
I spoke with my advocate and he told me that I will be awarded 10% effective to January 2005. He also told me that I would have to get another C&P exam for my left foot.
I called the entertainment line at the VA (800-827-1000) to find out when this decision by the Seattle VA would be "all" finished. They told me it could take anywhere from a few months to five years as they are so behind. This has been going on now for 12 years!
Does anyone know how to get this expedited? What might realistically expect? Thank You in advance!
