      If you have recieved the DRO SOC (statement of Case) You can NOD to the BVA on form 9

      I am not familiar with your case,  but if you been denied at the DRO Hearing or Review  and you have evidence to show your conditions have worsen  then Appeal to the BVA .

      You have a 60 day window to file after you receive the SOC from the DRO.

      Look on your Denial and read what the reason and bases they made their decision.?

  3. OK everyone thanks for all the advice I need your help I called VSO complained about length of time on Wednesday of this week today I checked my E benefits and my ratings are in for my ankles that they were denying me 10% for each bilateral which makes 21% I was originally 80% now they’re still saying I’m 80% I’m 50% pes planus 30% migraine headaches 20% lumbar 10% tinnitus and now bilateral 21% so 10% left and right ankle Can someone else please do the math because I come up with 86% which makes me 90 what am I missing please help and thank you

  5. Thanks everyone for their answers and advise and yes Ido have a VSO American legion but unfortunately I still have to manage to work and call times are mornings only almost impossible to talk with him. I am gonna try to get ahold of him tomorrow but u have to call right at 0730 eastern OR call list fills and never get on his list sucks! The worst thing I’m going through is that I’m stuck in limbo I can’t file on my other things I can’t add nothing I can’t do anything basically my hands are tied, this is complete wearing on me mentally Not to mention I’ve been out of the service since 95 was six service-connected disabilities and then thrown to the wayside as a young adult with no knowledge of how what or when by the VA now that I’m middle-aged my service-connected disabilities Have gotten so severe that I have multiple secondaries until I came across by chance a VSO in my county that helped me out back in 15 I’d still be at a loss and left at the wayside forgotten about now that I’ve been back in the system And have a 80% rating the VA now is trying to drop two of my ratings because I feel that this DRO rview is going to put me at 100% or really close in a way to just keep us down and out and causing worse injuries by forcing ourselves to do what we have to as humans to survive in the workforce that you can’t really physically do anymore sucks all the way around!
  6. They are telling me it’s waiting on a rating so I assume it’s just sitting there I was under the impression of DRO review or higher level review was 3 to 5 months I’m now at eight months and still waiting every time I call they say it’s waiting for a rating
  7. Good morning everyone I have currently been in a notice of disagreement for going on a little over three years with a higher level review DRO. The DRO contacted me in March of this year 2019 and stated that he is denying three of my claims but found a duty to assist on my fourth and fifth claim that he was going back to the PA to have her fix I watched my health vet that had a negative DBQ from that PA then she basically deleted it and re-wrote in favor more likely than not 50% service-connected that was completed in July of this year I have both of her DB cues the negative and the positive I’m at the eight month mark And have been told that it’s ready for a rating for the last three months still waiting does anybody else have this problem Indianapolis?

  9. Hey Buck52 Will do soon as it comes in mail he is one of the veterans that was in my eyes left at the way side he never ever went to VA YEARLY for exams or anything he filed in 2015 and Immediately got denied again with no C/P exams told him to get back in system and do a checkup so he has done that and he has med. evidence of scare left from surgery army did and back strain etc. I’ll post soon as it comes thx
  10. I was helping a buddy of mine veteran file claims cat outside Dr. DBQ done and filed but VA DENYED ALL CLAIMS without sending him for C/P exams he 10% tinnitus and he was a Heavy vehicle mechanic in the army did a tour in Bosnia as well I just don’t understand how they could deny without even doing C/P exams He’s very upset and doesn’t understand I told him it’s par for the course any advice that we could do?
  11. So how do I challenge the comp of the examiner were do I go to do that ?
  12. So long and short I received aC/P at Robly Rex preformed by a PA who I feel clearly did not answer the questions accurately Like for instance I was going for secondaries of cervical and ankle pain my history is bilateral pes planus 50% rate and 30% migraines 20% lumbar DDD’s 0% shinsplints 10% tinnitus I was going for secondaries one of the questions on DBQ ASKED was does the veteran have now or ever had shine splits she put NO also she stated That I don’t use a locomotive device which I have inserts by the VA for my shoes which are considered a locomotive long and short x-ray showed demineralization in my ankles cytes and demineralization in my shoulder She stated less likely than not on all my issues what are you guys think
  13. Yes I did had a PA do one last month and clearly she NEVER LOOKED AT EXISTING service connected disability’s I already have and in answering some of the DBQ questions she had she put NO as the answer like for instance one of the questions asked it’s the veteran has ever had or currently has shinsplints she put no and that is one of my service connected disability‘s even though it’s rated at 0% I had severe shinsplints I also have bilateral pes planus rated at 50% my ankles hurt all the time I have lumbar rated at 20 tonight is rated at 10 headaches and migraines rated at 30 service-connected hearing loss which I have not pursued yet but it is service-connected already rated zero long and short of it is I was going for secondaries on my ankles and I have severe cervical issues and ridicapathy of the Left shoulder and left arm she ordered x-rays left shoulder and ankles and they said demineralization noted so she denyed all my claims But she’s also noted other things as know when I have evidence showing where she never reviewed my file
