  6. One of my highest priorities is assisting you with your own individual concerns. In Congress this is referred to usually as casework. Casework can come in all forms depending on your needs. But where I can especially assist you is with questions and concerns relating to our federal government and agencies. Just some examples are issues receiving Social Security or Medicare benefits, difficulties with visa and other immigration applications, and questions on veterans benefits. Although I cannot mandate a particular result or override a decision of a federal agency, I can often assist in answering questions, finding solutions, cutting through red tape, and just ensuring that you receive a fair and timely response to your concern. And often, through my casework, I am able to identify areas where procedures or the underlying law should be changed. To assist you with your concern, please begin our casework process by: Completing as much of the online form below as possible. Completing and returning a Privacy Release Form . The Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. § 552a) requires that Members of Congress have written authorization before they can discuss your case with a federal agency, so completing this form is an essential part of the process. Preparing to discuss your case with my staff, including gathering all the key documents. My staff will reach out to you with any questions and next steps. PLEASE NOTE: Congressional ethics rules require that in most cases I can only undertake casework for my actual constituents, meaning residents of Hawaii’s First Congressional District (O’ahu from Makapu’u Point through urban Honolulu to Mililani and down through Waipahu and ‘Ewa Beach/Kapolei/Ko Olina to Kahe Point). If you live elsewhere in Hawai’i, I may have to ask you instead to contact Senators Schatz and Hirono and Representative Gabbard for assistance. This is specific to casework: my commitment remains to assist Hawai’i overall whenever and however I can and to welcome and reply to questions, comments and input from all Hawai’i residents.
  7. This is in reference to our inquiry on your behalf regarding the status of your appeal with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). I am forwarding the update that Senator Schatz received from the VA. +++++++++++++++++On June 18, 2019 the file was transferred to the hearing transcript office and is pending the hearing transcripts. As of today they have not been uploaded to his VBMS file. Once the hearing transcripts are completed a copy will be provided to the Hawaii Office of Veterans Services and placed in his VBMS file.

  9. NOD people start now . But before My appeal was sent to the Board of Veterans’ Appeals .I did this. Do this VETS please get your Record ,Doc notes treatment everything from VA/DoD eBenefits, The RO or Official Military Personnel File (OMPF) or Navy Medicine Records Activity (NMRA) notes about injuries, light duty notes etc. Online maybe google online query about records or call them. Started early 1 year or 2 . My records took about year from NMRA big box of records that came to my door, don't recall if free or fee but for me had to be free in 2005. But it took a year + to get everything. Then you go into records make copy on doc note about injuries, light duty etc, give copy to VSO, I was lucky My VSO went in my records with me all of them together found things I've missed, its hard but in the APPEAL WAITING GAME it will keep you busy go into you records five time until your Hearing know it. A Lot of time on hand for these Appeals just be prepare. Yes, VSO or Attorney can help but they are people too know your stuff too. I'm still waiting on decision for VLJ but she had a file from My VSO that was 3 inch thick April 5, 2019, DOC Notes , Light duty notes, evaluation MRI report, plus the kitchen sink . VLJ told me My VSO was good and I was Lucky too have her on my side, DOC Notes was the KEY, also hang in there and tell other VETS to come prepared like we did. SO VETS kick into gear get busy on records it help with the waiting. It's out of my hands now , I'm bored sometime but got hobbies now that helps . Don't give up!
