Question

I was denied service connection due to exposure to AO. I appealed, went to Washington, DC for a hearing at the VA. I finally received a response today. The case has been remanded to the RO. I assume this is good news. I also assume my records will be returned to the RO and I should only wait for a decision. Any info would be appreciated. Also does the RO normally reverse their denial? Thanks

I would suspect that the RO will do something favorable after they rethink their denial.

Good Luck

Can you tell us more- Yes -a remand is much better than an outright denial-

in the order to remand the BVA told the RO what to do-

Are you a Vietnam vet or did you serve in Korea 1698-or 1969- in the civilian control line south of the DMZ?

What did the BVA tell the RO to do- that would help us understand the claim.

'Does the RO normally reverse'- not too often but we dont know how many claims are won at the RO level so it could be higher then we think-

Was the remand due to VCAA violation?

Is your disability on the AO presumptive list, did you serve outside of Nam and is that why they denied?

Korea 68-69 - not DMZ. A request to be made of DOD inventory of herbicide operations to determine whether herbicides were used or tested as alleged. If not verified then a request should be sent to the JSRRC for verification. The RO/AMC must comply with provisions of VA's Adjudication procedure Manual to attempt to verify veteran's claim of exposure.

If you don't win this thing hire a lawyer. I bet there is significant retro involved. I hope the VARO does what they are supposed to do. Time is your enemy.

  • 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.
