This Can't Be Bad


timetowinarace

Question

Called the 1000 # a week or so ago and was told my file was with the adjudicator and that it would be about three months till I heard from them. Called today and was told my file is with the reveiw supervisor and to expect notification in about a week.

WHAT?

I haven't had a recent C&P exam. But then, they should have enough for a partial decision. That would help while I straiten the rest out.

And I did tell Senator Craig's office that I was about to lose my house and I planned on living here till I died. That my records were in order and available to the public. Maybe that helped.

Well, I don't have anything yet. Cross fingers. And a BIG Thanks to all on Hadit. Even if this is just a teaser, you've got me going in the right direction.

like they say- the squeaky wheel gets the grease- or words to that affect-maybe it is the squeaky grease gets the wheel?

In some isolated cases Senators or Congressman can help-

it isn't that they dont want to- it is just these things can hold up a claim for months-

But any vet close to a foreclosure -they certainly should take some action-

Looks like this did some good Time- let's all hope for this to go OK!!!!!

I think it's a matter of personal interest. Not necissarily with the Senator/Congressperson but person handling your case. I've used them before to no avail. Most often they will shoot out the complimentary letter and then the complimentry 'this is what we found out' responce comes back. That does slow down your file. But in cases like Testvet, if they actually make PHONE CALLS, you may get somewhere.

Called today and was told the same story. Expect a decision notice next week. I assume that since I reopened a claim with new evidence and have had no C&P this has to be a good indication.

Of course, it could be that they pulled my file to respond to the senator. In that case, the notice I get next week might say 'We have made a decision on you claim. We decided that you need to wait while we proccess your claim.' LOL

Just remember to believe it when you get it in writing. Until you have the decision in hand it is all just smoke. I have been badly disappointed by people at the VA telling me I had won large back pay award whey they were just talking out their butts.

Understood. As long as I have nothing in hand, I have nothing. If a decision is coming it may not be favorable and even if favorable, could be a poor rating. I'm expecting all of those things. I'm also sure I will have to CUE back to origanal file date. I'm not done yet.

    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?”

    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
