All I can say about this is God Bless Larry Scott. Look at the motto of VA watchdog keeping an eye on the VA because someone has to. Well they sure due the right thing.

I don't mean to sound like an idiot but what do they mean by "expect the other shoe to drop" and "veterans are not going to like the results"????

More VA dirty underwear is coming home to roost-

there is more to be revealed-

When I was talking to Jim the other day- I mentioned I often say -"pick a scab and it will bleed"regarding investigative work-

meaning- and we all see this when we start working on our claims and our med recs-

we start picking away at the SOCS and stuff and then the med recs can reveal that we were either rated too low, or not rated at all for something we claimed-that they didnt use our evidence, and those of you with Sec 1151 and FTCA claims know what I mean-

because when we pick away at med recs sometimes we find they malpracticed-even if we really didnt know it or were not sure-before we started looking for it.

The deeper you go on something the more you find out.

There is more to come- this is worse than Data gate, almost as bad as "SHHHH" (the VA suicide fiasco), just as bad as the Perez PTSD Memo,and when those attorneys at the BVA got canned years ago- maybe worse than that mess.

Something is wrong at every level of the VA-in my opinion.

AHH! COULD IT BE THE REASON I WOUND UP PAYING $2500 OVERPAYMENT ,WHEN

I KNOW I NOTIFIED VARO MY DAUGHTER DROPPED OUT OF SCHOOL AND THOUGHT

MY SON HAD BEEN ADDED BACK WAS THE REASON I DID SEE A CHANGE IN PAYMENTS.

DAUGHTER GOT PREGNANT AND DID NOT LET ME KNOW FOR ABOUT TWO MONTHS SHE DROPPED OUT OF SCHOOL WHEN I FOUND OUT I SENT A NOTIFICATION TO VARO .

MY SON HAD TURNED 18 BUT WAS STILL IN PUBLIC SCHOOL AND SENT IN FOR HIM TO STAY ON. WHEN I FILED EVR THEY NOTICED DAUGHTER WAS NOT ON WAS THE ONLY WAY WE CAUGHT IT SON HAD NOT BEEN ADDED . I AM SURE EVERYTHING I SENT MUST HAVE BEEN SHREDDED AT VARO. WHEN I CAUGHT SHE HAD DROPPED I KNEW I WOULD OWE SOME ,BUT $2500? SLOPPY DO NOTHING PEOPLE COST ME DEARLY

  • 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
