  1. Clothing Allowance Payment

    Greetings I didn't get mind until late September last year...should be soon now, I hope. Best Regards Chiefhouse
  2. Greetings Why would you say "don't look for a quick turn around on my Big Toe condition claim." What do you know that many of us don't know? Best Regards Chiefhouse
  3. Greetings I got this response from the VA on Friday, 28 April 2017 regarding my claims (Docket 11-12 911): This is in response to your inquiry to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) dated April 28, 2017. We are grateful for your service to our country. The Board of Veterans’ Appeals (BVA) has ordered that additional action is needed on your appeal before making a final decision. This appeal was remanded to the regional office on April 19, 2017. When all the required actions are completed, your file will be reviewed. If any further action or development is needed, we will contact you. If not, you will be provided a supplemental decision or Supplemental Statement of the Case (SSOC), prior to returning your appeal to the BVA for a decision. We are unable to provide any timeframe on how long it will take to complete your appeal once it is certified to the BVA, as it is no longer within your local office's jurisdiction and we do not have any control over BVA. We also cannot provide a date or time frame in which the regional office (RO) will process the remanded actions. As each Veteran’s benefits are as important as the next, they are generally processed in the order of receipt.

Note: This will be the second time my claims were sent back to the VA for further development. Will just have to wait it out. Best Regards Chiefhouse
  4. Greetings On 18 Nov, the BVA return my claim (Docket 11-12 911) to the Appeals Management Center for further development. This will be the second time for this action. My claim has been with the BVA since Nov 2015. I called the BVA today and was told that a letter was mailed to me today addressing the action taken. Last week, eBenefits stated that BVA had made a decision on my claims and a letter would be sent to me and DAV. Today when I checked eBenefits, it stated that further development is required. What is going on. Can someone explain? Best Regards Chiefhouse
  5. Greetings As stated earlier, my BVA remanded case (Docket 11-12-911) is now awaiting review by an appeal judge. This is a confusing process but I'm standing by for a positive decision soon on all five of my service connected claims. It's now a waiting game. To All, Merry Christmas and Happy New Years. Let's fight on to Victory. Best Regards Chiefhouse
  6. Greetings I'm kind of in the same situation. My NOD claim for Diabetes Mellitus Type II and Diabetic Nephropathy has been with the VA since Jun 29, 2015. My original claim was submitted in 2008 and I was awarded 20 percent. This NOD is for an increase for restricted activities and hospitalization for hypoglycemia and DKA conditions. According to the VA 1-800 number representative I talk to yesterday, no action has been taken yet on my NOD due to the backlog. Anyway, not too long ago, I was diagnosed with Chronic Stage III Kidney Disease (CKD). Should I submit that CKD claim information now or wait? If I wait and don't submit the CKD information, will the VA look at my CKD medical condition when they finally review my NOD. Your inputs will be appreciated. Best Regards Chiefhouse

  8. Greetings I called the DAV DC Office to check on my BVA Remanded Claim status and was told that they completed a "brief" on my five contentions and sent it back to BVA. I ask if I could get a copy of the "brief" and they will send it out today by mail. I certainly hope it is favorable to my case. More to follow... Best Regards Chiefhouse
  9. Greetings Berta Thank you calmly for looking into this and your sound advice on how to move ahead with this case. My head is pounding (tension headache) and I'm taking a ton of meds for everything under the sun. I kinda get lost at times trying to understand and pursue my BVA and NOD cases but I intend to hold on as long as I can to be successful. Again, thank you and everyone who have taken time to assist me. Have a great day. Best Regards Chiefhouse
  10. Greetings This is my remanded case and no additional C&P examines have been requested. Ebenefits show that by case is now in line to be reviewed by a BVA Judge. I'm I reading this correctly or not? Best Regards Chiefhouse00
  11. Greetings I just checked eBenefits on the status of my BVA claims and it said, "Awaiting Place on the Docket." Does this mean that the DAV has reviewed and written statements to support my Remanded Claims (Docket 11-12-911)? Best Regards Chiefhouse
  12. Head Injury Claim

    Greetings I'm still awaiting a BVA (Docket 11-12-911) and NOD (DMII increase) decision review on my service connected claims. I know there is a backlog but I'm very hopeful that most if not all of my contentions will be favorable. Best Regards Chiefhouse
  13. Head Injury Claim

    Greetings Okay, thanks for your advice. Best regards Chiefhouse
  14. Head Injury Claim

    Greetings Berta I have attached my current rated disabilities. I still have one claim pending BVA action and one NOD awaiting a review (over 300 days). My overall health is fading as we speak. Best Regards Chiefhouse
