    Iris

    Could someone tell me what is IRIS and how do I get on it? I am on ebenifits and check the status of my claim which has not moved in 8 months. Can I check the progress of my claim through IRIS?

    C&p Done

    Hello everyone, I filed a claim in July, and had my C&P in August according to ebenifits they have received all required information and my claim is in the development phase and has been for approximately 8 months. I have heard nothing from the VA, can anyone give me an estimate on how long it takes to move to the determination/award phase? Should I wait or go back to the regional office here in Phoenix. Any advise? Thank you Garry T MSGT USMC (ret)

    Service Records

    I am talking about SMR's, the letter that the VA sent me made it sound like they did not have my original SMR, however I gave them a copy. In any event they said that a decision would be made next month..

    Service Records

    Good morning everyone, Received a letter from the VA stating that they had requested my medical records and if they had not received it by November 21 they would made a decision on my claims. They also stated that I could provide alternate proof and listed what I could provide, is the letter a type of form letter the VA uses? I gave the Va when I filed a copy of my medical record and dd214 and other requested docs. What happens if they can not find the originial medical records. I still have one copy left of my medical records should I give that to them, that would make two copies I have given them

    Waiting For The Exam

    Still waiting on the actual exam date for foot surgery bilateal tunnel syndrom, herniated disk in lower back, was in traction, and loss of shoulder mobility these are all SC and in my med record. I was curious why it was recomended to have a POA for this claim
  10. Hey everyone, Monday I got my letter from the regional office telling me that they have requested an exam date at the Phoenix VA Hospital, seems to be going smooth so far. I also got a call from the RO rep to go over my package and to inquire if I had anything else to submit, he also suggested that I have a POA with one of the service organizations, that made me wonder, why does it look bad for me. So what happens at the exam? what questions are asked and do they xray, just trying to get a picture here.. thanks for your time..

    New To The Site

    Hello to everyone, just found this site a couple of days ago, and very glad I did. Just started a claim last month, Why I waited 15 years I just don't know (pride I guess) Retired USMC Msgt after 23 years, now with a bad back, foot surgey, and very little shoulder mobility from 100# plus packs we humped around, it gets kind of scary looking at how the VA rates disibility.
