  1. Also, anyone, the peggy hotline put in an inquiry for 2 of my issues I have yet to hear about after my claim was closed in December. Should I wait for these results before putting in a complaint on IRIS?
  2. Thank you very much. My buddy letters don't diagnose but show observations about me and some of the stuff we went through. Here is a quick example; I fell through and open hatch about 6 to 8 feet and hit my face and nose area. No blood. The doc of the submarine was the first to respond. He didn't put in my record though. In his lay letter he says that I fell, some of the symptoms I had and that he wishes he had sent me for further evaluation. I have letters from 4 other shipmates about my issues as well primarily migraines and sleep apnea/disturbances. My rep told me that the HL reviewer conference, which I wasn't involved with, that they didn't take lay evidence into consideration.
  3. Good evening; I phoned the 1000 hotline Friday evening (peggy) after having an inquiry put in last month and the I was told that a supervisor will now attempt to find out about the part of my RAMP case that I have not heard anything about since it has been over 30 days. My claim was closed in December. Please note I have tried to contact my rep several times but have been ignored. My question is; Should I wait until I hear from this inquiry from Peggy before I submit a complaint to IRIS? I have one typed up and ready to send.
  4. I just changed the font size to assist in reading.
  5. Thank you, I am going to use this information to the fullest extent I can. I appreciate your assistance. They also ignored all lay evidence from personnel I served with
  6. Hello, My RAMP HLR claim was closed out on December 21st and I received a denial for 2 of my claims via the RAMP HLR; however I didn't receive any information on the other two issues that I had. My rep told me that I was to receive C&P exams for these two issues on December 18th. I have tried to phone my rep twice and sent 2 emails but am being ignored by my rep. In the meantime I phoned IRIS on January 14th and they put in an inquiry and apologized for this happening. I have yet to hear on this inquiry. Is there any other way I can find out about my other two issues? I feel the people who review claims are doing this on purpose in hopes that I will stop my claim. I wish they were not like that.
  7. RAMP denied 2 of my issues by ignoring credible lay evidence, which goes against their policy. They didn't accept 2 other IMO due to the fact they were submitted after HLR opt in which my rep said they would accept if before the conference. They closed my case on Dec. 21 and I have yet to hear about my other 2 issues. I think they intentionally didn't put them in any decision to delay my claim. I have an inquiry in as of right now. I'm ticked as well. I wish you could go after the person who destroys your character and basically calls you a liar even though you meet all 3 of the caluza elements; which I do.
  8. Great education here! I appreciate the information.
  9. Yes I have a vets.gov and ebenefits account. They both say that claim is closed.
  10. Hello, My RAMP appeal HLR was closed out on December 21, 2018 with 4 issues. I received a denial on 2 of the issues Janurary 2nd. I have not received any information on the other 2 issues, migraine HA and GERD as of yet. It has been sufficient business days. I go through a county veterans superintendent who helps me but is not authorized to represent me as a VSO would so I have a different representative who will not return email or messages with regards to my questions on the status of migraine HA and GERD. Any advice on how to proceed would be deeply appreciated on how to get the status. \Also with regards to the denials would it be advisable to go RAMP supplemental or RAMP BVA lane when that time comes?
  11. Here is what vets.gov tells me. It refers me to ebenefits and it says claim is closed. Disabilities says the same thing it always has "not rated for anything" which it has said since my initial denial in 2015. Does it take a while for eben to update this portion? Historical claims has my RAMP claim listed. Thanks and Happy New Year! I hope this helps someone. Your claim decision is ready We finished reviewing your claim on Dec. 21, 2018.

  12. Good morning; I did a search on here and the results were vague on my issue with ebenefits with regards to my RAMP appeal. Ebenefits says appeal closed. It also says there are no ratings on the disabilities. I have already prepared for the worst higher level reviewer in Atlanta who reviewed my claim. Didn't take lay evidence into consideration. Also said the IMO must say review a certified copy of C file. It appears a solid review of SMR's and military history doesn't suffice anymore. Just another reason to deny IMHO. Anyhow, if the claim info is updated and the disabilities section says no ratings, does this mean a total denial?
  13. Thank you; the vets.gov site gives you the illusion that you have been rated in the statement I pasted. . Ebenefits says no ratings under disabilities which has been the case the whole time since my initial denial. I am already prepping for another NOD via I9 regardless of what any of the sites state. My rep also told me that new exams were ordered for 2 of my conditions last week after the higher level review which I wasn’t involved in. I’m a little confused as well.
  14. Here is the update on my claim from vets.gov. I also went to E Benefits and there is not any information available there on denials or any ratings. I presume the below message is sent to everyone and is just protocol. Thanks and Merry Christmas. Your claim decision is ready We finished reviewing your claim on Dec. 21, 2018.

  15. Thank you for the links Vync; this is the format I had the doctors review. I thought there might be another way for the C file review. I will await until I receive the actual decision and review. My rep says he already seen it; however he is 4 hours away and the only contact I have is via phone. Thanks
