  3. Great news!!! So I got a response today from congressional liason from my RO. Basically as of Friday my claim was still at national work queue. Today it's been rated and waiting on finals sign offs and and letter. Was told probably 3 to 5 days for it to be completed!

  5. Small update. Still haven't heard from NSO for my VSO. I did email the AMO back though asking for one more confirmation because my VSO told me it was being worked back in March. AMO replied back within hours (super impressed with that) and said as of the moment he sent original email it was with NWQ and that the droc DC or something are the ones who send claims from nwq to the RO. So now that I think about it I assume the NSO from my VSO should know that so maybe he did lie to me. The AMO did say they would email me Monday letting me know what work has been done since they set things in motion.
  6. I spoke emailed and got reply again from AMO. Yesterday they sent email to DROC-DC to get my claim sent from nwq to RO. Monday they are going to follow up on that and email me to let me know where it is. I was told they try to get partial grants done within 4 months and mine hasn't left nwq in like 185 days or so. my VSO hasn't replied back yet either when I asked about them telling me it's been worked on since March when that isn't the case. ill keep everyone updated
  7. My VSO told me it was with rater but appeals management office said it's still in national work queue and that they are emailing RO to actually start working it. So I don't know what to believe. I have to assume AMO is telling truth since they replied to me at request of Whitehouse.
  8. That's what I'm thinking as well. The NSO hasn't returned my email asking where the disconnect is. I have it in writing that a rater was rating it and back in March he told me that he talked with appeals coach and they were working my case. So either my NSO lied to me or the RO lied to him.
  9. Update: Last week I contacted VSO by email and called the Whitehouse hotline. VSO replied last Friday or so and told me that my granted issues on appeal were with a rater and I just needed to wait. Today I got response regarding my Whitehouse inquiry from the appeals management office. They are telling me that my claim is not with a regional office but with the national work queue. They said they are sending email to RO to get claim out of queue and work the granted issues then work the remand portion since it's been over 180 days in the queue. So who do I believe? VSO who says it's already at rater or AMO who replied at request from Whitehouse? Somewhere there is a disconnect.
  10. Thanks and exactly what I thought. This is interesting read as well. https://www.courtlistener.com/opinion/817352/harvey-v-shinseki/?q=cites%3A(416) My understanding is I now have proof of their violation of clear orders and regulations. So if anyone wants to file writ for themselves and want my email from VA specifically saying that don't prioritize remanded appeals over new claims which shows they aren't being handled expeditiously as required let me know and I'll send it to you.
  11. Here is quote from IRIS in response to some of my questions where they state that they are not a higher priority. "In general, expeditiously means with speed and efficiency. In general, remanded appeals are not higher priorities than new claims." So they do at least admit they don't treat them as a priority.
  12. Long story short I have in writing from the VA that in general remanded appeals are not a higher priority than even new claims. So what my question really boils down to is does the above quoted regulation mean that remanded appeals are supposed to be handled at a higher priority than a new claim?
  13. Sorry I definitely could of been more clear. In general does this mean that remanded appeals are higher priority? I understand there is a line to wait in but want to make sure I understand the basic premise of the above regulation.
  14. What does this mean? Does it mean remanded appeals are supposed to be handled as higher priority compared to new claims when they get sent back to RO from BVA? That's in CFR 38 in case anyone wants to look it up. 5109B. Expedited treatment of remanded claims The Secretary shall take such actions as may be necessary to provide for the expeditious treatment by the appropriate regional office of the Veterans Benefits Administration of any claim that is remanded to a regional office of the Veterans Benefits Administration by the Board of Veterans’ Appeals.
