Remand Overflow



My remand has been with the AMC for 17 months now, everytime I call for a status I get the same canned answer: (Your claim is ready to be rated and was put in the overflow room or box)

Does anyone know what this means?

hello captron,

Same here.

it means your claim is in limbo. It's not being reviewed or processed by anyone.

It stays in this state, until someone at a Regional Office somewhere, is free for the Appeals Center to pass it off to, in order to give it the same "type of review", that you appealed to the BVA for in the first place.

I'm in the same situation and this is my third time going through the appeals center.

If it's sent to a RO, you can expect it to be denied again, with any type of BS. This will put you in a position to have to send in, even more evidence that they will likely ignore.

See how it works?

My claim is a 1998 BVA appeal, on a 1995 VARO reopened claim from the 80's.

You can go to Court and make the VA do its job. Writ of Mandamus

Good Luck and welcome to Hadit

I have been told the same thing by the AMC. I spoke with James at the AMC this morning and this is what I was told.

My file went to the AMC last April, year ago.

James told me that in April of 2006 a tranmisttal was sent to my R.O to nortify them that I had placed a Waiver and that the AMC had control to work and make decisons on my claim.

James said that after waiting until Feb.5, 2007 that another reminder was sent to the R.O to sign off on the file.

James said that the R.O sent back the signed transmittal April 24th and that now it had came out of the overflow section waiting for a Rating Specialist to rate.

If you have signed any Waiver for the AMC to make decisions on your claim, you may have your rep check with your R.O to see if the AMC is waiting for same sign off.

This is what I was told and have to trust that James at the AMC is telling me as it is.

Hope this helps you.

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
