  1. Its a roulette wheel. It will soon stop on Grant Remand or Deny. Good luck.
  2. My appeal status on Ebenefits went to "With Veterans Law Judge" dated today. On VETS.GOV it says the same as yours "recently closed" with todays date. I called BVA and the guy told me its not closed they are still working on it. I told him what it says on VETS.GOV and he repeated its not closed they are working on it. I said it don't make sense and he repeated it again. When i click on view status i just get a circle that spins and never shows status.
  3. I received the same letter. It was dated 12/12/2018. My form 9 was received in May 2017. I requested Board review with no hearing. The letter states that you have 90 days OR until the board issues a decision to submit additional evidence. I read on another site where a guy was complaining because they issued a decision well before 90 days and he was upset because he didn't get his additional evidence in before the decision. I recently submitted evidence so i called BVA to make sure it was not too late and the lady assured me it wasn't. She said they are currently working Docket numbers from March 2017. That information is also on the BVA website. I figure i got at least another month or 3 to wait.
  4. Of course you are right and i will submit the evidence. I just don't understand why they put that" decision soon" box on the vets.gov status. They have a graph showing 113,000 appeals in front of me. I assumed i had close to 2 years before they get to it. I called the BVA number and the lady said they had my file but it has not been uploaded in their system yet. She told me i had time to submit evidence but she could not explain the" decision soon" box and said it made no sense. The vets.gov tracking system is much better than ebenefits but nonsense like this only serves to create confusion. Maybe in the eyes of VA a decision 2 years away is "soon". I am curious if anyone else got a "decision soon" notice on vets.gov and at what point in the appeal did it show up?
  5. I have a claim on appeal and i am considering sending in some new evidence to BVA. According to VETS.GOV my appeal was certified to the board in December 2017 and there is more than 113,00 appeals ahead of mine so i know i have a long wait. I have been checking the status of this appeal on VETS.GOV the past few months and last week a box appeared stating " Decision soon. Submitting new evidence now could delay review of your claim. I don't understand how there could be a decision soon but i am now reluctant to submit anything for fear of causing a delay. Did anyone else see a decision soon message on VETS.GOV? It just showed up for me last week..
  6. I want to opt in to Ramp but they never sent me a form. The form is not available on the VA website. I called them twice and they told me i would eventually receive the form with my invitation and it would have a bar code on it. They told me they don't have the form available on their website and i looked and could not find it. If i can get a form i will try to opt in to Ramp but if everyone can just send in the form why don't they have it available? I'm not sure the VA wants this program to succeed.
  7. I called VA today and asked if i could move my appeal to RAMP and was told it is by invitation only until 2/19. I referred the lady to the press release on the VA website which states all are eligible with no invitation needed. She read the press release and put me on hold and came back and told me all will be eligible with no invite after 2/19. Until then they are sending out invitations once per month and they are going by NOD date oldest to newest. She said invites for this month have been sent out. My NOD is 8/16 and i have not received one. Has anyone been able to opt in without an invitation? Anyone recently received an invitation care to share NOD date? I asked her if they are using date of current status instead of NOD date(which i suspect) and she said no. I remember someone saying they got an invite with NOD date of 11/16 which is later than mine.
  8. How did you opt in without invitation? Is there a form available online or did you call VA? I would like to opt in but don't know how. Over 153,000 ahead of me in legacy appeal so i'm willing to roll the dice.
  9. Will they be sending letters to everyone now or must it be requested? My appeal was just certified in December so i am bottom of the pile. I want to try the RAMP option but i never received an invite.
  10. This section shows status updates for your Open Appeals. 12/28/2017 Administrative Case Processing Your appeal is at the Board. While preparing to decide your appeal, various administrative actions may be required, and your appeal may fall into this category more than once. Your appeal will proceed towards decision upon completion of any of the administrative tasks required. 12/28/2017 I requested a DRO review and received an soc basically repeating the same language in the original denial. I then sent in a timely Form 9 appealing to the board. E-ben went from pending appeal to intake processing but the dates never changed. Then today i see this in E-bens with a new date. Someone told me they might have sent it back to VARO due to some errors but who knows. I thought E-bens would not show anything when it is at the board but there it is. I am under the assumption that my appeal at the board is just beginning and i have been putting off working on getting some new evidence because i have lots of time. I don't have a VSO and opted for no hearing. I'm just going to send in what i can find that think will help and try to forget about for awhile. Only thing i know for sure is certified to BVA 28 sept17 and Administrative Case Processing 12/28/2017.
  11. RO received my Form 9 on 25 May 2017. I received a notice from RO that my Form 9 was received shortly thereafter. I have not received anything from the VA since then. In early October Ebenefits show status of Intake Processing location the Board but i received no mail from VA about this and no docket number. On 28 December 2017 ebenefits status changed to administrative case processing location the board. On Vets.gov the status says The RO has certified your appeal on 28 September 2017 again i no received notification or docket number. I am wondering what Administrative Case Processing means at this stage and if i will receive a 90 day notice to submit new evidence at some point? I elected to have a review by VLJ but i did not request a hearing. I am assuming they cannot make a decision without sending a 90 new evidence letter and i am working on getting some additional evidence in.
  12. I have read an appeal without a hearing will be processed faster. Has anyone filed an appeal and went through without a hearing? How much faster will it be decided? I have filed an appeal and requested no hearing and it is now at the board with a docket number. I know it will be a long time but just how much less time as opposed to a video hearing? Do they work all appeals strictly by docket number or do no hearing appeals move ahead of those waiting for a hearing?
