I am not Berta,but this is my advice to you go ahead and send in evidence because Bva will have to look at it.Make sure you write your claim number at the top of first page and send it certified mail with return receipt ASAP.

Gary- are you saying the BVA never made a decision in a decade ?

I dont understand the question.

A claimant -after receipt of BVA transfer letter from the RO- has 120 days in which to send in more evidence or raise issue of VCAA violation -if claim was pending during Nov 2000-the VCAA enactment date.

Were you asked to withdraw this appeal when you received your award?

No, I wasn't asked to with draw claim & I think I submitted it to the RO in '05. Sorry about saying '95

Yes, I have checked with the BVA & they say they are working on June '05 (Every time I call them) & say " They didn't receive it till January ( The BVA till January 2,006)

Sorry about getting the years mixed up but does what U say mean I had 120 days from when I got letter from BVA & if so should I take a chance & send in letter as suggested by other person who responded?

If U think it's a done deal just let me know & I won't bother to send in.

Also, if this is the case can I file again for SMC as I do have new evidence & if so should I send in the stuff I sent in before with the first claim.............Thank U......GARY

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to 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.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
