Yes, you can obtain a copy of your c-file by writing your regional office of the VA. I was advised to NOT request a copy while my claim was active as the process might be delayed due to the file being "pulled." for copying. More experienced people at this site might advise you otherwise. Good luck@

should you have a copy of your c file?

You can just go to the VA Regional Office where you claim file is at and request it and read it and have them copy what you want. They are usually pretty good about it. :rolleyes:

All veterans should have and maintain a copy of their C File. If you have a copy and file for a new claim then you can request a copy of the new documents produced by the new claim. That way your copy will always (at least it should) match the official C File maintained by the VA.

It depends on the policy of your VARO. Yes, the policy should be the same at all VARO's, but it isn't. In Indy, you now have to put your request in writing and they will mail it to you. You can no longer request a time to come in and view the file. Call the 800# and ask what the policy is for your VARO. You might be able to fax a request in. I requested mine and a week later got a letter from the VARO letting me know it will take some time due to the large volume of requests they have received. I called the 800# and they said they usually like to get them out in 10 days, but right now it is taking about 20 days. I'll let you know when I get it, I requested it on 29 August.

Ricky; does this mean that we each should request a copy about once a year or just when something changes, ie. claim or medical condition? thanks,cg

Tag along question to cowgirl's:

If you have the bulk of your C-file from a previous request and want to get whatever they have in there SINCE the original request (ie, please send me anything in my C-file since Jan 1, 2005) will they charge you for the "second" request which is really a "new" request for evidence that wasn't present in your first request for you C-file? (hope that made sense)

Do you need to cite any reg to make sure they don't charge you for the evidence in your C-file since the last time you requested a copy of your C-file?

Thanks,

TS

Claims Folder:

Always request copies under the FOIA.

Use the term "completeness and accuracy".

    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.
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”

    • 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.

    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
