Va Explanation For Flagged File

Philip Rogers


  • Elder

I stopped by the VARO to change my address of record, recently and to get a date stamped received copy of the change. The employee working the intake window advised me she would make the change however discovered, when trying to make the change in the computer system, she did not have the "authority" to actually make the change. As many may know my file is flagged. I finally got an explanation for the flagging. "Anytime an attorney is representing the veteran all changes must be made by supervisory personnel to insure all is done properly." Finally, something that makes sense.

I'll betcha accuracy is not involved because the main thrust at this time is to discourage attorney involvement in the process, on top of screwing up claims to keep our comp money on the other side of the fence.

Lawyers working for vets are normally not expecting payment until the vet receives some retro money.

My lawyer had to wait several years to receive anything for his time representing me. (Equal Assess to Justice Act)

Flagging a file simply because your current rep has a higher education than your last rep did has to have another, hidden agenda.

What regulation covers this?

Covering their butts has nothing to do with it because they don't get less money or less power or fewer promotions for successfully guarding the government's interests. What they get is a bonus.

Those people live in another world where our morals and values mean nothing.

Just another well designed penalty box for Veterans who fight the VA.

When dealing with the VA being a cynic can never be wrong. If it were not such a crime it would be comical the way the VA preverts the rules to save money. It is as if they are telling you that if you were dumb enough to have served you deserve what you get, sucker. One born every minute I guess. Knowing the situation I just don't understand why young men and women join up these days unless it is because they have no other opportunities. If you are living in Slippery Rock, Mississippi then maybe that is the fact.

I was avoiding the draft but,,,,,

Even after watching me fight the VA for years one of my girls tried to join the army twice.

They sent her home as not physically up to standards with carpal tunnel syndrome.

Then our local ortho doc cleared her of that diagnosis and she went trotting back.

Then they repeated step one and she decided to forget it.

At the time she was a world class athlete and she still holds a world record on a bike.

She finished her college degree last month and her 2 boys make their father proud.

The army f---ked up.

    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.


  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
