  1. Just a heads up, as of February 19, 2019, if a Veteran is wanting to submit a claim for contentions that are reconsiderations or reopens, the 526ez is no longer the authorized form and will no longer be accepted per Appeals Modernization Act (AMA) guidelines. I suggest anyone looking for more information to take a look at the VA Form 20-0998 which can be found at https://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-20-0998-ARE.pdf or https://benefits.va.gov/benefits/appeals.asp and https://www.blogs.va.gov/VAntage/56694/vas-appeals-modernization-act-takes-effect-today/ and https://www.va.gov/decision-reviews/ The authorized forms to submit the aforementioned types of claims are as follows: VA Form 20-0995 for supplemental claims, which can be found at https://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-20-0995-ARE.pdf VA Form 20-0996 for Higher Level Revies claims, which can be found at https://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-20-0996-ARE.pdf and VA Form 10182 Decision Review Request: Board of Appeal https://www.va.gov/decision-reviews/forms/board-appeal-10182.pdf If you submit a claim pertaining to a contention that was previously denied using a 526ez, no action will be taken on that claim. You will simply get a letter stating that you need to download one of the aforementioned forms. The 526ez is still authorized for new contentions and for increases. EDIT ********** Any claims with re-open or reconsiderations prior to the specified date are treated as they were before. There is no need to re-submit anything.
  2. I was wondering if anyone has successfully appealed the VA decision to deny Annual Clothing Allowance claim. On yesterday, I received a letter form the VA stating that my claim was denied for my Annual Clothing Allowance. I submitted pictures of the braces which were provided by the VA Prosthetics in Fayetteville, it is the ones with the metal hinges on the side. I also submitted pictures of clothing items that were ruined as a result of the braces. I was encouraged to do fill out a appeal by an employee in prosthetics. Please advise me on how I should handle this matter.
  3. Hope everyone is getting through their week and staying warm. Had yet another rough night followed by an appointment down at the Denver Regional Office. Need some clarification if any of you have the time and would truly be appreciated. 1. Decision on my PTSD from the VA was dated in May of 2011 (Woman I speak with in regards to these issues and daily struggles recommended me around 50-60%) was awarded 10% 2. (please no acronyms, haha, very confused) I am under a year since the decision and very very much so disagree with the decision the system came to. The Woman that conducted my C&P Exam was rude and judgmental thus I no longer wanted to speak to her. In addition my misconceptions of how the whole thing works did not understand that during this exam it was my time to open up to the things that I struggle with. (odd thought on this one- PTSD= mistrust, so why does the VA think we will just open up our dark world to a stranger....beyond me) 3. The DAV has requested for a reconsideration in my behalf. (what is the difference between an appeal and reconsideration?) My service officer said based on my evidence I submitted in Nov of 2011 I should have a new rating in 30-60 days based on the regional offices average rate of addressing these issues. Am I mistaken or reading in to this in any way? 4. Today I did submit documentation regarding my use of a service dog to help me cope with crowds and my both physical and emotional reaction to situations. I wish you all well. The dreams have recently become more vivid and daily activities seem to be harder for some reason. Had a huge break down over the weekend but trying to stay strong. Semper Fidelis, Mike and Colt
