  1. I’m in final review for about 40 days after spending almost 5 years in legacy. Peggy says almost done but no date. They have everything since 5/1. I thought ramp was quicker .I opted in 5/13. I get close then it gets sent back. No one know anything.All you can do is wait
  2. VA received my RAMP appeal on March 13 and still no answer after 142 days. Is this unusual? Any STATS out there on how long some of them go over? Peggy gives me different answers every time I call in beginning with very few go over the 125 to at 135 days if you don't get a letter in 30 days call us back. Nothing worthy on vets.gov My VSO is clueless and gives me only what I get myself. What is the point of RAMP if there is no real deadline at all, not even a few days over?
  3. I have an open door to Jeff Sessions ands Bradlely Bryne, I need some help getting the the info on how many Vets are experiencing bogus C&P exams. I need a count of all of you that have legimate false C&P exams and hopefully a a private doctor's staement to back it up, I am going to the mat on this one. I have 4 Vets that got Bad C&P exams and have private doctors statements that say the the C&P exams are wrong, when a VA PA exams over rides a MD. One Medical Doctor said "You need an attorney" Also I need help on how many vets are trying to get a DBQ's filled out only to be t
  4. I tried to find the DBQ for TBI from the download list. It is missing in action. Is this because of the revision in process of 38 CFR? I need it to get an neuropsychological assessment done by protocol by a local source. The VA is insisting they cannot use a local contractor and that I must travel to Denver, 3.5 hours away for the assessment. The remand didn't specify it be done by a VA qualified psychologist. Only that it be done in protocol which the last one wasn't. Looks like I'll have to go to the CAVC with this.
  5. Hi everybody just received my TDIU C&P exams schedule for next week any suggestions. anything
  6. This is an important guide everyone should read. https://asknod.org/2016/11/02/how-to-ace-any-va-compensation-pension-exam/
  7. I went through a C &P Exam in September for a re-evaluation of PTSD. The exam lasted less than 45 minutes and the Examiner did not ask but a handful of questions or even consider paperwork in my C-file from Voc. Rehab stating that my medical conditions prevent me from working. The first update to E-benefits stated the following provided in the screen shot. Before clicking on the action tab the claim type said INC. Today E-benefits shows that someone read my submitted evidence because now it says under review. Has anyone had this claim type of INC on a proposal to reduce before? If so, did
  8. Folks: I've learned three important lessons from the VA Disabilities Claims System recently. One is that even with the best preparation, you can get tripped up by the complexities of the rules. Today, I looked at one of my deferred claims that I thought was solid for round 2 and realized that the APRN that did the CP Exam did a "guesstimate" on the Shoulder ROM Measurements and they were way off? I actually spoke to another Vet last week that had a similar problem and realized that it was that same APRN that I had? So despite talking to her boss and making a complaint, it made little differe
  9. A veteran's story... after service. A difficult, but true story with a warning to Veterans. Fore-warned is forearmed. Like many others, I enlisted in the military, to do my part. It never occurred to me, beforehand, that such as this story would occur. I find most veterans are reluctant to discuss their ‘stressors’. After years of experience with VA hospitals, I don’t remember anyone ever telling me what happened to them. Those painful events are personal, private and burdensome. I don’t want to discuss my ‘stressors’ either; suffice to say they occurred and I struggled
  10. Folks: Recently, I did some C & P exams and a lot of what I said to the examiner, never was considered or mentioned in the exam results? So, I was thinking about submitting a new "statement of support" for my claim to fill in the Gaps for the raters? For instance, on a few of the contentions, even though I had clear SMR evidence for the incident and when/what happened and on the day it happneded, he never mentioned or commented on the actual SMR that was provided to him? Although this is my first claim and an FDC, I'm not sure if I want to delay the entire process again by adding
  11. Hello all - The DOD and VA lost my records for 23 years, and with a slew of serious health problems, I've had to put together my own top notch medical team. They were all more than willing to complete the DBQ's (at least for the presumptives) for DS/DS. However yesterday, I had to go through C&P exams for everything. Can anyone give me any insight? Stefani Ceballos -Wake up every morning curious. And wake up determined to find the answer."
  12. So in my remand, the VLJ wanted a more recent C&P for arthritis. He also stated that this should be during a flare-up of the condition to see the full extent of the claimed disability. My question for my brothers and sisters out there is this: has anyone STOPPED taking medication for a condition so the C&P shows the extent of the condition? If not or if so, why?
  13. I know this has more then likely been discussed several times in the past, but I'm putting it out there because it's my current experience as I'm living it. Trying to keep it all in one place by adding to other threads that discuss this topic is somewhat frowned upon, which is why I'm starting this one. Synopsis of my process so far: Initial award: 50% in 2004 for a laundry list of things typical to a 25 year Army career of jumping, deploying, sleeping on rocks, not sleeping, not eating, stressing etc, etc, etc. I was in the middle of a bunch of life changes so didn't appeal anything.
