Several discussions about ITFs under the AMA process have cropped up in other forums. Today in talking about one it dawned on me I could find out a few things by simply starting to file under the AMA process. In short what I found is that ITF's do indeed exist under the AMA process for New Claims. The process also recognizes automatically if you have an existing ITF from before Feb 19, 2019. Attached are 5 screen caps on the process. Caps 1 and 5 related to filing a New Claim. The other 3 show what your options are depending on the date of the decision you are appealing. Read the fine print on Cap 5 concerning previous ITF's. Will this change? who knows, but as of now the application process under AMA for a New Claim indicates that ITF's are alive and breathing on their own.
Another question about the AMA process. In 2018 I filed for SMC for ED. I was awarded 0% but SMC allowed. yippee. At that time the Award letter said I had a potential claim for Voiding Dysfunction if I choose to file for it. Since my other claims were tied up on the VA hamster wheel, I filed an Intent to File. AS I understand it since Feb 19 that Intent to File is gone? and my earlier date is done, meaning when I file for the Voiding Dysfunction my file date will be the earliest possible under the new AMA process? Is there a way around this to get an EED back to 2018?
This is directed @Tbird and the other people who manage HADIT. Will there be a new section for AMA now that RAMP is closed? Things are kind of a jumble right now and as I am trying to find clarity on what lane I am "supposed" to file in, having a separate AMA section would be helpful. Thanks
