Question

Hello All Hope All Is Well. I have recently filed a NOD for an Increase that was less than Favorable. My Question is when you file the NOD and request a DRO Review what is the Time frame or is there a time Frame for VARO to assist and gather the necessary information to process or make a decision on the claim. Before if the new decision is again not favorable and you move forward to BVA. Under Rules and Regulations there Is a Time frame as for when you have a limited time to file on any of your claims. such as 120 days or 90 days and so forth. I need some kind of clarification Thank You .

Note: I might have misread your question. The senario below is a situation where both the initial decision and the DRO decision were "no."

Just my thoughts; my DRO decision was negative and I have submitted new and material evidence which I "hope" is reviewed before BVA action. I wouldn't count on the VARO being much help in "assisting and gathering." I've found that if I don't do it personally, then it just doesn't get done.

The timeframe for the VARO receiving new and material evidence is from the date of DRO denial to the date the BVA reviews the case--that is my opinion. My new evidence was received in February and I have been submitting documents as recently as last week. They will send you letters (e.g., Vasquez-Flores, etc.) telling you about getting evidence submitted within 30 days, but it has been my experience that as long as the case has not gone to the BVA you can keep submitting.

My DRO decision was 31 Jan 08, almost seven months ago. I don't look for any type decision for many months in the future.

Others may have different opinions--this is just mine.

Good luck with your claim!

I did not file a Form 9 just a letter asking for a Hearing. Had the Hearing in under 2 months and the denial the same day althought not to my face. He just mailed it to me the same day.

I filed form 9 after denied back condition for 3rd time... after results from hearing ...no choice to BVA.

My VSO filed form 9 and 646, not me, sorry if I confused anyone.

  • 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.
