Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

Sorry it has been a few days, family drama has been going on. I'd like to post the email my congressional contact got and then forwarded to me. How long do we have to wait, now?! Any ideas?

I just recently received this message verbatim from the VA Regional Office:

“Brian XXXXXXX

The Decision Review Officer has just informed me that his case has been rated. It is with a member of the appeals team who completes the input into the system. I will keep you posted. “

I just wanted to let you and your family know that we are doing everything we can. I will be in touch further as I receive any further updates. I tried to contact you via telephone, but the Verizon numbers were not currently in service.

Take care,

You can call your POA and they should be able to get you an answer. It wont be too long until you receive a formal decision.

The POA should have an office in the same building as the RO.

We don't have a POA. Our last one was a jerk, and we never found another one.

This has worked for me a few times. Dial the 1800 number and ask what your curent rateing is. Thats the way to get around waiting on the letter

Thanks, Jim MAC, I'll do that as soon as he gets back. They still won't tell me anything unless I have him around.

Belle:

As frustrating as it is the award will come. It will seem like forever but you are very close as compared to where you started.

Good Luck and Congrats you put together a powerful claim.

  • 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.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
