Rating Specialist Has Decided My Claim At Amc


Josephine

Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

Hi All,

Well, the " Rating Specialist has made their decision on my claim at the AMC, September the 4th and it has been with the " Rating Supervisor" since September 15, waiting for her to sign the form.

Is there anyway that I can get her to put her John Henry on it and give me an answer.

I ask Lidel today and he said that the decision has definitely been made and that no papers have been mailed to me.

Anyone know of anyone to call.

Thanks,

Josephine

Hi Betty

I think Lidel well give you the answer, but it has to be a noncommital way, so he does not get into trouble.

Ask him "Is this decision something I will want to read or not"

Maybe other forum members can come up with other ways.

Paul,

I am going to work on Lidel or James tomorrow. We have just about become buddies, as this has been going on for so long.

Thanks a bunch,

Betty

Easy one to answer. Ask how many signatures does the claim require. If he says 2, you know you are going to retroville. The 25000 Kind. I hope he says 2.Keep us informed. You have waited a long time.

Manitou Sprgs,

Thanks so much, but it isn't over yet. I will believe that I received a grant when I see something definite.

You ask how long this has taken me.

I have been at the Appeals Management Center since April 2006, which would put this at 18 months.

I would consider this very slow, considering that I advanced on the BVA boards docket.

What do you think?

I pray to God many times a day for the veterans.

I continue my fight to try to rid the VA of this Personality Disorder Practice. I want it to stop!

I wrote another email to Dr. Gunderson, since he is the chairperson of the DSM Books that is governing this Personality thing.

No word yet on my claim. I wish the edit button was present. If I type something wrong, well it is there for the world to see and I hate to spell someones' name wrong.

I have to watch my P's and Q's.

The VA has no perception of time.

Thanks,

Josephine

I'm a novice with regard to the VA system--I filed my NOD in early September. I was just curious about how many months (years??) the process will take.

Hang in there; I look forward to reading about your successes.

As I have said before, expect a 3-5 year process from the very start (filing the initial claim) to the finish (getting the decision you feel is appropriate).

Did you have a VSO on your claim? That would be the person to ask. I would also keep calling the 800 number and ask. Sometimes they let it slip. Your claim was not at the Court and you did not have a lawyer, right? How far do you live from the VARO. If I was close I would go in person and pester them. No matter what jive answer you get don't give up or get too depressed. You know this is a long term battle.

Cloudcroft,

I feel that I have paid my dues on the time frame. It has been 6 years.

I wouldn't be so bitter about this claim, if the VA had been on the up and up from day one.

They knew in 1978, when I filed, that there were psychiatric records leading to my discharge and surely to goodness, in 30 years, someone should have known to secure my personnel records.

I called today and one of the Supervisors called me back.

This is what she told me. " Your claims file has been messed up way too much and that it would definitely be signed by Friday."

She said that when I call back Monday, it will definitely be at a different station.

The correct decision is to pay me 100% for anxiety with depression back to 1983, when the VA awarded me the pension. ( denied at this time due to excessive income, but I still have it), due to the " New and Material Evidence of all of my Psychiatric records and letter from the Commanding Officer leading to my early discharge and the why's.

John,

My Service Officer is in West Virginia and sorry to say, that he doesn't know as much about the system as I do.

That tells you that he is pretty dumb. Wouldn't you say??

I use his name for all of my Statements in Support of Claim, if he gets the credit for what I write, that is fine with me.

I wouldn't trust him to deal with my claim.

There has been too many lost records and strange things happen in this case.

It is becoming a challenge to see which way the wind is going to blow next.

One of the lawyers, at the BVA, has helped me so much with getting this case through the process.

Of course, if it should end up in the courts, she would have to dis-qualify herself, but I would still be stuck in Huntington, had it not been for her expertise.

As I wrote to the BVA-

" Where is there a queary of a veteran coming to the BVA with a first C&P examination of a " More likely than Not" and then 5 months laters having another C&P examination to receive a Personality Disorder, for which you have never been treated for in 43 years."

I have yet to locate any case with this situation.

If anyone locates one, Please let me know.

Always,

Josephine

    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.
     
    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?”
     
    Note:
