I would expect that your claim will be reviewed and they will let your Senator know what they find out. If you get an increase due to review you will probably hear from the Senator first.

In my opinion you are fortunate to have a Senator who was able to get this done for you.

Nothing will happen almost all the time, he is just a median to transfer paperwork or inquire about you claim on your behalf other than that they have no real influence on your claim at ALL, NONE!.

I have seen at times were they have worked on the behalf of others but very, very seldom and at times it just holds up most claims and the VA sends them a letter on how they are working so hard for you and this is what they did for you and they went out of there way(to screw you) and your Rep. or Congressman passes it along to you, its more of a big fat joke than anything...Rick

Skunk, to give you an idea how it worked out for me "writing my Senators" the VA's reply to to my denial to them was we are working on Mr.XXXX claim though he has file for an appeal he was however awarded 40% for XXXX. The 40% they claim that I was just awarded I had been 40 for the last 13 years prior so in reality I was awarded nothing it was a play on words to my Senator that they were taking care of business and just had awarded my 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.
