%'s Of Remanded Claims Approved?



I was wondering if anyone knew the percent of claims won after being denied at the ALJ level? I'm sure it's small.

Most Vets seem to say SSDI was easier than VA claims, especially after being awarded 100% but that has not been my experience. With 100% P&T decision AND a decision that I'm not competent to handle my finiances (with the two C&P Doctors reports to go with them) I was denied by the ALJ.

I did send it for review and won a remand. Getting a remand is a low percentage as it is. But, even with overwhelming evidence, I know Judges are not in the habit of overturning each other. So I'm on the fence on this one. If this fails, the only step left is a lawsuit.

Basically, all my evidence is in and all I can do is worry. A large part of my disability is verbal and memory problems. Not good for answering questions in an effective way. My hearing is next month and I didn't expect it for another year. It's only been two months since the remand and hearings are 14-16 months out here. So, I'm wondering what my chances are.

You really need to read the remand to know. Often times a remand is telling the VARO how to fix the claim and is usually positive for the Veteran.

Timetowinrace, A remand from SSA is a good thing. The ALJ may be a no person ( Opposite a yes man).

Some of these Judges are actually worse than the VA. Always remember that you have the option to take the appeal all t he way to the top and dont give up.

I have my hearing next month and it has been too long.

Good luck

    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?”
