Question

Here is the latest from VA. I spoke with my service rep two weeks ago who said I was approved for 100% IU with ch.35 benefits and I should be getting word in the next two weeks according to VA. They had misplaced my claim and then said there was a glitch in the computer system. Here is the latest exchange. I don't know what the hold up is. Do you think it is with finance? I should have a pretty sizeable retro payment and I've read about others on here that were decided in July 08 having delays getting their info. Does ch.35 mean that I have p/t?

Mr. XXXX,

Response (Department of Veterans Affairs)09/06/2008 08:15 AM Mr. ,

We have not completed our action in the computer system. It is back with the individual who will authorize the decision by the rating board. We hope to notify you of our decision within the next two weeks.

If you do not receive our decision by 09/22/08, please send us another inquiry and we will check into the delay.

Thank you for contacting us. If you have questions or need additional help with the information in our reply, please respond to this message. If at some future time we can help you on a different subject, you may submit a new inquiry at https://iris.va.gov, call us toll free at 1-800-827-1000, or visit our web site at www.va.gov.

Sincerely,

217/250/94 Veteran/Inquirer09/02/2008 01:26 PM I am requesting information about the status of my claim for unemployability. I understand that there was a decision made July 2008 but I have yet to receive any paperwork on the decision. I was told that there was a computer glitch and they were trying to get my information in the system to get it mailed out to me. I was also told that is should arrive before now and to check back again if I hadn't received anything by 09/01/2008. Thank you.

Response (Department of Veterans Affairs) 08/20/2008 05:08 PM

Mr. ,

We are almost finished with your claim, but we need a little more time. You should receive notice of our action within 30 days, but probably much closer to two weeks. If you do not receive notice by 09/01/08, contact us again for an update.

Thank you for contacting us. If you have questions or need additional help with the information in our reply, please respond to this message. If at some future time we can help you on a different subject, you may submit a new inquiry at https://iris.va.gov, call us toll free at 1-800-827-1000, or visit our web site at www.va.gov.

Do you live close to your VARO? Call and make an appointment and go there with copies of your iris's and any other copies of info you have stating such, and see your C-File too while you are there. Did you use a VSO? Like Larryj said contact your VSO too.

No, I'm 5 hours away from the VARO. I'll call my service rep tomorrow. Does anyone know about the ch.35? does that mean p/t?

When I was granted TDIU but denied Chapter 35 I filed an NOD for being denied Chapter 35. I was really wanting P&T status, but what the VA specifically denied was Chapter 35. I got it a year later on 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.

     

    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.
