  1. 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.

      Just called them this a.m. and they said they would change my appointment to here in Oregon!

      QTC called me the day before my appointment and said that they are closed indefinitely, until after the pandemic!

  2. 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!

      It is probably illegal but the VA decides what actions are illegal so they have you over a barrel.  I would use this information to attempt to reopen your claim for benefits.  You have nothing to lose at this point and if you can prove your claim you might be entitled to some backpay.

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. TWIMC: If anyone has any advice for me it will be greatly appreciated. I am having some problems with the VFW here in Oregon. Every time I ask them for help with my claims I keep being told that their computers are not working or I found out the forms that I have filled out have not been sent to the BVA. I was told that the forms that the VBA received were blank. I have sent in forms for intent to file and various NOD's and the VBA says that they have never received them. I do not know what is going on but would really like to get the straight skinny on what I should do. I guess with this Covi
  6. I was wondering what is going on at the VA. I had my CMA denied because the rubber tip on my bilateral elbow crutch is not worn enough. I was told by the prosthetics rep that she received orders from a "Head Honcho" to deny everyone because they wanted to stop the Veterans that are labeled "double dippers" from utilizing the new law. I got mad and went to see the head honcho of the VA in Eugene, OR clinic. He told me that the rubber tip on the crutch was not worn enough so that is why it was being denied. I told him that I have been receiving the CMA since 2005 and he told me that the VA would
  7. I retained an attorney to get SS disability. Then the Attny's said that they did VA work as well. I was awarded SS disability right at the time the fee increased. It was within in thirty days. I told the attorney that they should refund me the difference, which they refused. I got into an argument with the attorney firm and told them that we had agreed on a different amount and that they should do the right thing and give me the difference back. The SS law judge said that since the initial filing was prior to the pay increase and that the attorney firm should reimburse me but that it would be
  8. I was granted my appeal from an NOD that I sent in in 1990. Now the VA is saying that the claim was for Jan. of 2015 and not in Dec. of 1990. Do I send in another NOD about this and what can I realistically expect? Thanks

  10. 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
  11. How does one go about getting a copy of the administrative medical records anyway?
  12. 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

  13. I had a real struggle getting my wheelchair ramp installed in my new home when I moved. I asked for a consult to have this done and the prosthetics person said it would take a few months. Since I was renting I had to get the old one removed (in a month) and a new one installed in my new residence. At first she told me that I would have to pay to get that removed my self. So I wrote a letter to my Senator to get the ramp removed. The prosthetics person wrote back to the Senator saying that the ramp had already been removed when it had not. I was charged $1200 by the land lord. Befo

    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!

    VA August 7 2015 Appeal Ruling and Remand.pdf

  15. I entered a claim in April of 2009 for secondary service connection, claim to my lower back. As a result of my appeal, I got a letter stating that the Original Veterans Law Judge is no longer with the VA and that according to USC 7107(c); 38 CFR, 20.707 my case has been reassigned to a new Veterans Law Judge. They say that they have a transcript of the original hearing and can make a decision based on this transcript. I asked my Vets Advocate, VFW, to assist me in this matter. The original hearing was looking for service connection in my service record. There was only one entry in my Service s
  16. whoops,... the form 9 is online and can be filled out and then printed
  17. I just had the Am Leg refuse to represent me saying that they did not have enough personnel or time. They also said that their volunteers could not help either. I am looking for one now. But I have to be able to know what is going on myself instead of relying on a vet rep to do things and then they don't follow through or things get lost between the cracks. For example, the Am Legion didn't check that my address change had gone into effect, even though I changed it over the toll free number twice and they did three times (they said) and still I missed a QTC exam. The letter was sent to my d
  18. Howdy all Ya'll, I have a predicament. I am trying to fill out a notice of disagreement and the VA has never sent me any statements of case on my claims. While I have been homeless and the VA says that they sent the mail but was returned as undeliverable. So how do I fill out the form 9 when it comes to box 9. Should I just check item A since I have not been afforded the opportunity to read the SOC or the supplemenetal SOC's. Another question: If the time has elapsed for responding due to not knowing what and when the VA decided to deny my claims can I ask them to be reopened due to the
  19. Hello I am Treymon. I am a disabled Persian Gulf Veteran of the USN and have, through the years, from 1993 to the present, been represented by the DAV, Texas Veterans Commission, Private Attorney and lately by the American Legion. I am currently rated at 50% service connected and 110% overall disabled. I apologize for this being rather lengthy. I have never seen my c-file until recently this last May, for 30 minutes, to address a untrue derogatory enrty from a P.A. from the office of the Neurosurgeon that performed my lower back fusion and laminectomy that I was fee serviced to, by the VA.
