Getting Decision

Rate this question



My claims are with the final rater who is making the actual decision.

I don't know whether to prepare for more battle or to prepare for a proper award.

They are deciding 6 issues- 2 claims can be rendered moot by proper AO death award.2 are Cue claims and one is a claim I filed in 2003 that has never received any decision at all.

There is no reg that can award the claim- it is an unusual claim. I asked the OGC in Washington to decide it as a legal question issue but they had no jurisdiction because the VA has never decided anything on it nor approached OGC for help in determining the legal issue involved.

I did ask the VA to change the actual reg.

If a decision is eminent on my AO death claim-- I guess they aren't going to obtain another VA medical opinion.Nothing on the radar since my remand indicates they will.

I have 3 IMOs and additional probative medical evidence against one VA IMO based on only 3-4 medical records -an opinion which also actually included support for the claim.

All that and still- I am getting out my additional IMO file just in case I need IMO # 4.

Your right - never say never and have your #4 back-up.

I never believe anything until either a) I have the decisions in my hand or b) I've checked my

bank account and the deposit HAS been made. lol

Good luck, it will happen.

No one can predict what the VA should do and what it actually does.

My past claims took over 3 years for the same reason these present claims are taking so long-

I send the evidence many times and VA said they never got it.

The DAV said they too sent it and the VA said they never got it.

When I got real tough they found it all.

This time is different however-

and it opened a big bag of worms regarding my POA.

This time I had rights within the VCAA that they denied me.

I have written proof from the main office from my POA stating I never came into their office for years-a lie-(the vet rep did not start up my POA again the way he should have)They held my POA since 1997.

They said I received a legal VCAA letter-a preposterous false statement-

what I got in their files is not a proper VCAA letter and I proved this with my fast remand.

They claim the vet rep did give the DRO in 2005 my IMOs to consider since they had not been considered yet-although received by the VA in 2004.

Completely false per the VA itself.

They refused to support my remand request in AUg 2006 and when I got the remand in Sept 2006-they suddenly sent VA a 4138 and tried to claim they got it for me- a big lie-

These are unusual situations for any claimant to deal with and I dont know why they have been so unsupportive of me.They also threatened to drop my POA because I questioned how they do business.

I have a business dealing with my lawyer and as soon as he is done handling that I will ask him if I can take Class Action against them as I am not the only claimant that has had problems with them- but some vets dont even know yet how they are being set up for remands at the BVA all due to getting illegal VCAA notices.

I had to send the director the actual VCAA laws and regs because he didn't even know what a legal VCAA notice was.
