  1. 8 Years finally BVA Grants

  2. Well hopefully the issue is addressed and veterans get the benefits they have earned. I would imagine the excuse is we are overworked and that might be true, but military veterans deserve 100% effort when it comes to the claim process. Two ideas: hold information seminars around the country to help veterans get knowledgeable and hire more VSO workers. I would think some recent college grads and veterans looking for work would appreciate the opportunity.
  3. Thanks for the information gentlemen. And I will try to call in tonight.
  4. Can you explain again about the 90 day period to submit additional information at the BVA.
  5. I received notice from the regional office my claim had been certified to the Board of Veteran Appeals. What does this mean? Do I have 90 days to submit additional information? When is the docket number assigned? Is the BVA going to contact me when they receive the appeal?

    Keep getting medical information and if possible find any information from your active duty medical file for skin problems or something that links your current condition to your military service time.
  7. Just a Ebenny/Peggy Rant Really

    Funny stuff. Seriously everyone wants great job, with excellent pay. However, no one wants to put in the effort the job demands. Answering veteran questions can get tedious and old; however you took the job full well aware of the job description. No pity from me, do your job and assist veterans like you are supposed too.
  8. After the regional office receives your Form 9 and starts preparing the appeal for the Board of Veteran Appeals, does the regional office take one final look at the appeal to see if it can be resolved before sending the issue to Washington D.C.?
  9. Appeal status

    I will add, if the original 2007 claim was not interrupted and went thru the appeal process, then you should receive a retro payment of 10% (due to going from 80% to 90%) going back to 2007. I would thoroughly investigate how they came about 2 months retro at 10%

    Good luck..............
  11. Good informative article. I will say evidence is king and eventually somebody will connect the dots. The form-9 and 646 probably need to done by the VSO when the form 9 is submitted. I don't know if its possible, but people with the most knowledge should have a hand in its preparation. Also, it would allow the veteran be a part of the final argument before it is docketed in Washington, DC. Just my opinion.................
