Question

As per my previous post on my award, I received the blue rating decision on 31 Jul without the normal cover letter (the one that tells you "what did we decide", then lists the dollar amounts of the award etc...). They did include a one page letter tellling me that my claim for 100 percent with an effective date of Jan 05 was considered closed since the rating decision awarded the full benefit. The letter also asked me for my 214 to cover my enlisted time (prior to my warrant service).

As of this date there has been no back pay and I just checked the bank and they continued to pay me the old rate. In an IRIS reply they told me the claim was still with the rater being processed, which is impossible due to the fact a rating decision has alreade been typed and mailed to me. They said the "rater" still had to process the claim. I do not know what the "rater" has to process but I guess they will finally finish the claim sometime during the next 2-3 years. Oh well nothing this RO does surprises me!!!!!!

Just wanted to let you guys know that along with my claim I have read numerous complaints on other sites about the VA awarding claims in Jul 08 but still have not began to make the monthly payments or issue any back pay. So if you got your back pay during August 08 feel special hahahahahahahaha.

My over $25,000.00 claim (20 year retro) is still with the rater waiting a supervisors signature since August 1, 2008

Still being patient and trying not to spend the money before I get it. I heard my file is on a desk at the bottom of a stack. I still feel special lol B)

You mentioned that the letter asked for your DD214......did you send it to them? Maybe they are waiting on that before they pay???

Don't know....just a thought.

Ricky, That is making no sence at all if I were you and lived close to the RO I would beating on their damn door right now. Something is really screwd up here. Are you positive the award or whatever it is that you have has your social and name correct. They only other thing I can think of is that it is a big retro check and the need the extra sigs. Very strange let us know how this turns out. By the way which RO are you referring to?

My claim was decided in July 08, and I got the retro in July 08. Then on 1 Aug i got the 90% rate with no dependants. Then I get a letter dated 20 August stating they had added my dependants, and the next day I got the retro back to August 07 for that. Today I got my Sept 08 disability direct deposit and it was the 90% rate with no dependants.

B) seems to be a lot of this going on this month...

Rental that was fast work, glad to see it go well for you. Ricky is next I am sure. Just think if we didnt have regional offices, either the wait would be longer for resolution or shorter to dismiss us out.

After my letter all was balanced in a few months. Sure was anxious until then tho'!!

Best to y'all!

Yep sent it to them 4 August 2008 (faxed, iris and CMRRR - green mailer was sent back to me on 8 August)along with my withdrawl of a couple of small claims that they continued to deny and was addressed on the SSOC they sent me along with the award letter.

If I count correctly this was the 6th submission of my 214 covering my enlisted time. The last time I sent it was in support of a GW presumptive claim which was contained in my appeal!

  • 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.

    • 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.
