If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.





I called today to check on the status of claim. Voicemail for my caseworker said she no longer works there. Called 800#, nice lady said my case was closed July 11th and it is at local SSA offie. I had called on the the 11th, to verify they had received all medical records, as the week before, they had not.

I have not had an interview, but submitted very recent medical records showing I use a cane to walk, because of 2 knee replacements on same knee, and take medications for chronic pain. They did not call anyone I listed on the form either.

Any ideas??

have you obtained a statement from an MD that states you are not able to perform even sedentary work and that this is not likely to change?.

Contact them again and find out who your claim is now assigned to. No answer? Ask to speak to the supervisor.

allan, they said the case was closed on the 11th and sent to the local office.

I called the SSA line, and they said it was at quality review, and I should be hearing something soon, and good luck.

Yes, the Doctor's have said no sedentary work. No driving or sitting over 30 minutes, without a 15 minute break. No prolobged standing or walking. And 5 of the 6 daily medications I take state not to operate motof vehicle while taking. So the claim is assigned to quality review and she said if I go to the main office they may, or may not tell me.

Good news to you sgt mac, I am hopeful that less than 6 weeks from original claim, to it being closed is a good sign!

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

    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
