  1. I received a letter the appeal is ready to be certified to the BVA; however the VSO says the appeal is still at the regional office. 1. Will I receive a letter and a docket number when the appeal reaches the BVA? 2. Will it have a address where I can submit/send additional evidence. 3. Does the BVA get a paper copy of evidence or do they have access to e-benefits? 4. How long do I have to submit evidence to the BVA before a Judge decides the matter? 5. Will I be contacted by someone before the Judge decides the appeal?
  2. I feel your pain. My appeal has been certified to the BVA, but it's still at the regional office. I have several questions about the BVA process. 1. When do you receive your docket number? 2. Will you be notified when your case arrives in Washington, D.C? 3. If you have additional evidence, where do you send the information? 4. Does the BVA get a paper copy of your evidence or are they able to access e-benefits? 5. Will they contact you when your case is ready to go before a Judge?

    8 Years finally BVA Grants

  5. 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.
  6. Thanks for the information gentlemen. And I will try to call in tonight.
  7. Can you explain again about the 90 day period to submit additional information at the BVA.
  8. 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.

    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.
  11. 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.?

    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%
