Question

I have submitted new and material evidence since a DRO issued a denial SSOC. I also have submitted a form 9. I was told today by a VSR (1-800) that the diary in VACOLS shows my c-file is with a DRO (again) and that the diary entry includes a suspense date of 13 Aug 08.

I'm hoping the end is in sight or at least a new SSOC will be issued--what do ya'll think?

Ron, how long since the DRO issued the denial? Reason I ask, checked on my De Novo to DRO, told by (1-800) the suspense date, was overdue and in red. Few months later, I did the Iris, their reply 'still pending a determination by the Decision Review Officer.' only showing date of my submission.

Not sure, but I read that if SOC issued it could move faster. I suspect there are different 'suspense' dates for each DRO response depending. For now relax, reread and relax again.

Best to ya,

CG'up!

the process.

Hello CG,

1. Submitted claim: Aug 06

2. Original decison with SOC: Aug 07

3. Filed NOD & requested DRO review: Sep 07

4. DRO denial with SSOC: Jan 08

5. Filed Form 9 and new & material evidence: Feb 08

6. Told DRO is reviewing file (yes, I know) and VACOLS diary has a 13 Aug 08 supense: 4 Aug 08

The claim has not been reviewed at a higher level than the VARO. I had hopes it would be resolved before a review in Washington, DC.

Please ignore my request for comments--I was abducted by aliens who assured me the 1-800 number always was right on the mark with info.

Hi Rich,

I received a SOC with my first denial (some other disabilities were approved on that one).

I received a SSOC with my second denial (DRO)--appeal.

The SOC/SSOC did not come separate.

Soooooo? Man, I hope this don't sound to crazy, so your saying your "Determination letter" is a form of SOC? I thought the SOC came with a form #9, which I never got just a "Determination letter" and filed a NOD on that. You know what's strange I have yet to see it happen to someone else here on the Board.

Hey Ron, I hope my DRO don't get loaned to your VARO and she finds out you know me. Boy will you be in for the long haul hahahahahahahahahaha.

Nah it just takes time.

  • 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.
