  1. @acesup I was previously in the same boat. My DRO appeal was granted on July 31, 2018. I learned the hard way that White House phone calls and Congressional Inquiries don’t work. Last month (February), I called the VA 1-800 # like I did everyday, three times a day. And the representative said she would give me the number to the VA liaison for my regional office which is Baltimore. Long story short, her office was directly across from the person who oversees the entire appeals Dept. The liaison took action on my behalf and was quite upset about the whole ordeal. My claim was closed the very next day and money in my account three days later.
  2. @acesup My DRO appeal was granted on July 31, 2018 and dates back to 2016. I am in the same boat. The congressional inquiry put in on my behalf last month was a waste of my time. I did find out thru the inquiry that I’m rated at 100% but, that is the only good thing to come out of it. I also recently called the White House hotline. The email I received a week later is the same information I receive from the 1-800 number. They are of no help. My appeal is also flagged for hardship and has had numerous requests from within the VA to expedite it to no avail of course. Good luck on having your appeal close soon.
  3. @acesup My DRO appeal was granted on July 31, 2018 and I’m still waiting for promulgation. I was told granted appeals can take much longer to process. My appeal is out of the Baltimore RO. Hope you get the BBE and back pay soon.
  4. @broncovet yeah, I refuse to get my hopes up. I’ll get excited once I know for sure what my rating is officially. Patience is a virtue I haven’t acquired yet.
  5. @Vync I just realized the year for the DRO review is wrong it was granted July of this year. Thank you for the good advice and I will look into state benefits here in Maryland.
  6. @Vync When I called Va a couple of weeks ago the rep told me that was being considered for IU. But, I thought you had to apply for it in order to receive it and not automatically given. The rep told me this morning I am rated at . According to her, my back pay requires another signature and this is the hold up with my notification letter being sent out.
  7. I was granted a DRO appeal on July 31, 2016. I have yet to receive an award letter as my claim is still in the notification process. I was able to get a va rep to mail me the narrative portion of the claim. I do not understand why I was rated 100% with the effective date of May 13, 2016 and then right beside it a 70% assigned rating dated November 16, 2016. According to the explanation I was found to be 100% due to the DBQ I submitted from my therapist. A 70% was then given after my C&P exam on November 16. Can anyone explain to me what the heck this means? I’m beyond confused right now.
