Question

ok i have been confiding in some of the members about my claim by pm . i am going to let the cat out of the bag.

for those who remember and those who do not know the particulars of my case. i got

30% bipolar in sept 08. i filed for an increase pretty soon after with some secondary claims as gerd and a couple more.

next thing i know i get a letter scheduling me for a c and p exam psychology,so i went to it. i do not know how it turned out. i thought i was at ro for all this and would be decided at ro. i noticed on letter said washington did not have much time and be sure to attend c and p.

so i e-mailed my vso "this is how we communicate as i cannot hear" to check on my claim. she said she could not help me as my claim was in washington and they have my files at appeals management.

so what i am surmising is when i won my 30% it said i could present more evidence

if i thought rating was incorrect,that is what is happening.

however he did not want evidence from years ago just to last may. when i won my 30% they went back to 2001.

so what i am surmising again is sounds like i am fixing to get beat out of a lot of back pay .

i won my 30% at appeals management,but it took a long time ,and i had to call a senator to get them to going,i feel i may have another long wait.

thanx rental , and all who have been confiding by pm to help me.

what i am wondering also is if i have to wait longer than the year to file a nod if i can still nod this in case i do not get the increase?

WOW- that sounds great- but nothing better then getting the actual award letter.

I know of 2 vets who got decisions in 4 months at the AMC-

and I feel that -so far-I too have gotten expediticious treatment there.

  • 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
