Hello and thank your reading. Can I file for EED and how to do so? Filed Claim with 4 contentions on September 10, 2019 with a ITF from Sept 17, 2018-Sept 16, 2019 after being told by the VBA I needed to file it as Supplemental cause previously denied and closed. I got word from Peggy and sent it in with my new and material evidence to include my ITF 09,‘18-09,’19 which was in the first filing, in time under my ITF on Sept. 14, 2019. In late October 2019, Supplemental MH approved and IU inferred/deferred pending application with an effective date of Depression as Oct. 1 2019. I bunched the Depression with 3 others but then quickly submitted it as Supplemental still within my 1 year ITF. All three other claims denied sc or increase denied. My ITF is good for the other 3 and still is do to HLR pending but VA paid no mind of my Supplemental’s EED. I ask again, does my ITF cover my AMA award? If so, how do I appeal for it?
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.
