Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

How do I start CUE? I kind of need step by step directions.

How do I find an attorney? I really don't want to turn this over to an attorney, but I will if I have to; I'm a control freak, and I'm our best advocate!

I've requested the C-File, but they sent a letter that said it would prolong the appeals process, I'm resending the request for C-File, I'll get it this time, no matter what. I'm desperate to know what's in it.

I posted advice as to a Reconsideration question and other stuff in the other post you made.

A good vet rep should understand what I meant about having the VA call a cue on itself-itself- you can print out my response and give it to a vet rep or any veterans lawyer -they should know what I mean -

you can file the NOD and get a lawyer or

you can file a reconsideration request (info here under search on that)

and get a vet rep to support it but you cant get a lawyer until the NOD is filed

When you get lawyer you will have to revoke the vet rep POA.It is often beneficial to file a Recon request but to make sure that if almost a year passes, the NOD is then filed within the one year deadline.

or

You can ask the VA to CUE themselves if they broke VA case law- which they did

Cite 38 CFR 4.3 and 4.6-

and anything in M21-1 that will help you- the rep or lawyer will know how to do this-that too might bring better decision- still the NOD time frame is only one year-

were you given a 60 day response period to this decision?

Copy ALL of the evidence again and re-send it to them with whatever you decide to do and tell them to acknowlede it properly as M21-1 states they are supposed to.

The Vet reps here are a joke. That's why we fired ours. I'm looking into the attorney thing. We were given the 60 days to respond. I've sent the CUE request by IRIS. If I don't hear back within 5 days, I'll send a request in the mail certified return receipt. I hope I'm doing this right. Is that right?

  • 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.

    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
