  1. I wholeheartedly agree. As veterans, we fight for what is right, however, we then have to fight for what is justifiably right for our behalf.
  2. Thank you everyone for the responses. I will file within the next day or 2. I have secured the records and have submitted for other copies. Thank you.
  3. Hello, I am will be filing for my husband 100% temporary disability. I will have the copies of his records of hospitalization to submit at the time I do the claim on line. I need to also submit for other claims fie which I will not have copies of medical records for up to 30 days if not a little more. Would processing the requests separately affect processing times? For the sake of time would it better to submit the other claims to get them started and in the system without the copies of medical records? Thank you.
  4. Hello, I am not sure if I am posting in the correct forum. I am trying to obtain some assistance in regards to my spouse who is a retired veteran; was 90% before a reduction to 80% (I believe) due to no-show for appointment. He is currently in the hospital and has been since 17 November 2015. He was released to a licensed skilled care nursing facility almost 2 weeks ago, which is where he is at this time. I read that it may be possible to apply for temporary 100% when hospitalization is greater than 21 days for service connected disabilities or for non-service connected disabilities where serv
  5. Vync, I will definitely take a look at the information that you have provided. I also need to look into information on conditions that were denied and/or those rated at 0%. It is my belief and many others that my husband should have been at 100% based on his many health issues, however, he is a people person. He works with soldiers and enjoys sharing. He deployed for Desert Storm as a 13B, was exposed to the black smoke which filled the air, and witnessed what had been sent down range. Thank you again for leading me in the right direction.
  6. Vync, thank you very much for your thorough response. I was told that I can fax the form and that it can take up to 7 days before it is in their system. For reference, the fax number that I was provided through a VA chat was (844) 822-5246. You are correct in regards to the letter sent informing about the reduction. I believe they gave him 60-90 days to respond before reducing. My husband has extremely high ammonia levels which affects his mental faculties. Normal numbers are below 30 and his has been as high as 196 a little more than a week ago. The doctors have stated that this has been goin
  7. Hello, I am a veteran, however, this post is in regards to my spouse, who is a retired veteran. He had been awarded 90% a couple of years ago. He made an attempt to have an increase for anxiety (was 30%) and another previously rated condition (20% I believe) re-evaluated. More than likely they would have been increased as I know that the anxiety had gotten worse with several panic attacks a day. There was a letter dated mid-2015 that stated he had missed his appointments for re-evaluation and so his ratings were reduced to 0% for both service related conditions. We are currently separated, so
