I read that there is a change (?),... in part, that it is not generally required to have a medical opinion to establish a Sc disability to inservice, if there is evidence that disability is chronic and has continued since service.

Am i missing something ? or has this always been the case. Or, is this reflecting a true change?? Since June 26th, 2008. Txs, William

Allan,

This is really important to view...Have read recently where SMR are now referred to as STR, and esp. the following change;

Page 1-C-14:1.1.C.7.C

"To note that a medical opinion is not generally required to establish a link between a claimed disability and the Veteran's service when the evidence shows that a disability is chronic or symptoms have continued after the veteran's discharge from service."

My file went to BVA 18th jul and this was updated 20 jun. This should have been settled at VARO with this information as it identify's what they are disputing...I am really p.o.

I agree this is very important if im reading this right.. Can we use this transmittal in support of our claim(s) and keep them at the RO level. If so, Im sending this too the RO in support of my claim today. Any feedback is appreciated....William

  • 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.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • 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.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
