  1. So I had the DAV representing me at my BVA hearing in Washington, that's been 9 months ago. The board has made their decision and my claim has been with the RO since May. I spoke with a DAV rep yesterday and he informs me that I was granted P and T on May 09 and that my case is waiting on 1 more signature before its paid out. When I ask him where he is getting this info he tells me that its all in my file that he is looking at on his computer. My question is this... Does the DAV have access to info like this in their system ?? I know I won 1 appeal for IU but was waiting to hear if it was going to be P and T and I have 1 remand still out there. According to this DAV rep, I got the P and T that I was hoping for but I hate to put much hope and excitement into that not knowing if he actually has access to that. Funny thing, he gave me effective dates, percentages, dependent info... Unless he was looking at the real thing, he could not have had this info. OPINIONS Please and Thank you
  2. Thanks for the response Bwaveteran. So I am assuming that is what my letter from the BVA and the VLJ was. I read it again yesterday and it gives in detail what needs to be reviewed and done with my remand by the RO. I was granted my IU but I also had a remand on another claim. Again thank upi for the input
  3. I am patiently waiting on the RO or the AMC to process my claim... I have been told that its at 1 of the 2 places. 4 months in now but 1 thing I keep seeing in different forums is the Fast Letter subject. Particularly Fast Letter 10 02. Can some one please explain to me what this is and what does it mean?
  4. The DAV rep I spoke with seems to think the RO will process each seperatly due to the fact that they are unrelated to one another. (the grant and denial) I honestly think the same will be for me, I will receive the remand and grant in the same packet. I hope you are right on getting the letter soon! If you don't mind me asking Richard1954, what was the time frame on the partial denial/remand you got until you received your letter??
  5. That is the pattern I'm beginning to see vetquest. I spoke with the DAV in Nashville and they say that since the Grant and Remand are for unrelated things that they feel certain the RO / AMC will work them separate... I did not have a lawyer, only a DAV rep in Washington.
  6. I was afraid that they would do the remand before doing the IU. I will call the hotline today and see if they can get me somewhere... Thank you
  7. I had 2 appeals that were heard by the VLJ. 1 was granted from my original service connected injury from 1991. I have been getting compensation from this since 1993. I filed for IU in 2012 and was denied. The judge granted the IU in November 2018. The remand was a claim for PTSD. It was originally denied in 2012 also but the VLJ remanded it with her ruling in November 2018. So I am waiting on retro and compensation change on the 100% IU for the service connected injury and the remand on the PTSD.
  8. I was granted IU in April 19 after a hearing with the VLJ in Novemeber 18. 1 appeal was granted and 1 appeal was remanded. I still have heard nothing on the grant of IU but 2 days ago I called the DAV and they said that it looks like my case has gone to the AMC, Appeals Management Center. THis is where I am confused. Is only the remand at the AMC or is the grant also there??? From what I have researched it looks like only the remand goes to the AMC. Who will make the decision and do the paperwork on the grant? I emailed IRIS today to see if they could offer any insight into the grant and maybe a time line on where it is and how much longer... Anyone that has any input please offer it up!! I know this is a waiting process but I am so frustrated with all of this. Thank you all!
  9. I'm still waiting on the envelope from my RO and Ebenefits / Vets.gov has yet to update my letters. I called Washington and they state it's all there for the RO to review... Hopefully sometime this week.
  10. So I got the brown envelope today and called Washington to confirm what the judge had stated.... The letter in the envelope was not straight forward as to P and T but Washington reports I do have P and T and I'm eligible for all 100% rated benefits!!! After 6 years of stress and worry this is finally nearing an end. Ebenefits and Va.Gov have not updated and the retro has not hit my account yet but still such a sigh of relief!! Thank you to all of you for your input to my questions recently
  11. Yes Broncovet, that's one thing I have definitely learned through all of this... Ebenefits and Va.Gov are as clueless as I am to what is going on. Thank you for the reply and now to start waiting on the envelope
  12. Hello... THis is only my second post here but I visit often when I have questions to read others experiences. Today I have a question... After 5 years and 11 months, VA.Gov reads that my appeal for IU was granted. My question is about T and P though. I have been rated at 90% since May 2013. I filed an appeal for IU and that is what the decision has been made on. However, during the hearing the judge and my representative seemed to be leading toward a T and P claim. I have seen where the veteran will file for an IU claim and when the decision comes it states IS TOTAL AND PERMANANT. I am unable to see anything of Ebenefits or VA>Gov right now, says its all being updated. My VA.Gov states GRANTED 100% Rating for Individual Unemployability Is it possible to be granted T and P when you did not originally file for that and it was not part of your appeal?? Thank you to all of you
  13. Broncovet... I don't talk about it and don't want to talk about it... It is unknown to me if it was reported or not the next day, I was severely injured and flown out and never saw the desert again. I have given them the stressor and I can only hope now that after reading my records and having my primary VA provider state that my PTSD is " more likely than not " related to my military service, rule in my favor. Thank you for the input.
