New Guy

I have been fighting the VA since 1965 off and on for the same dissability. When I had my DRO hearing a few years ago the guy made 5 false statments in his answer. By this I mean he gave five reasons for denial that were contrary to evidence in my c-file. I was told there was nothing I could do and to move on to the next step. Fast forward to today. The appeals management Center has my file now and has asked the Social Security Dept for my dissability information and they asked for the treatment files from one of my VA doctors that wrote a letter in my defence. It has been about 3 monthe since the AMC took my file. Any thoughts on where this thing might end up?

First of all welcome to Hadit Beauford. AMC does not have all that great a record for speed but your claim will move and you will get an answer. If your claim dates back to 1965 you might consider looking inot a Writ of Mandamus although 3 months at AMC will be their defense.

Good Luck

Hi Beauford,

If it has been three months, Let me ask you, do you have a copy of

the medical records of the doctor who wrote the letter for you.

If you do, I would have my Senator fax these to the AMC for you and

they will be accepted and not lost.

I have been to the BVA and the AMC and my problem was lost records at

the AMC.

I would do the same with the Social Security Records.

The AMC is very slow, in my opinion, in securing these records and

holding on to them when they receive them.

You have a very old claim, same as me, and it isn't a picnic.

I was discharged in 1964 and it took me 40 years to prove my claim.

Only this year 2008 did I receive 100% P&T.

I did receive two large retro checks, but I sure had to

dodge pot holes and everything the VA placed in front of me.

Always the Best to You,

Betty
