Hola Veterans,

I submitted a claim through my county service office in 06. I never get to talk to anyone but the rude secatary. The service officers brags about how he has been doing the job for 30 years. I submitted a form 9, what I was appealing and requested a BVA, 2006. The Regional Office lost my form, so the service office submitted another Form 9, leaving off

cervical disc. Again, they said they never rec'd the package. The service officer faxed it to the claims supervisor. I never got the chance to speak to the service officer because of the gate keeper secatory. I have a MRI from active duty 2001, stating the disc were rupture. They keep denying claim because the CP doctor was pisted off the day of my C&P. I got into agruement with the supervisor (over claims), the next week the claim came back denied. Normally claims take 6-12 months, the claim was denied within a week. I wrote to DC, and congressman again nothing. I have COPD have been in the hosp. because of pneumonia have to constanly stay on steriods and they will not up my rating. Rating now 90%.

Good Luck and welcome to Hadit

  • 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.
