Question

Hi folks,

I got this response today concerning my inquiry about my claim. My claim went to the rating board on Jan 30, 2009. Do you think it will be done very soon?

"your claim is currently located with our Post Determination team awaiting promulgation. You will receive our decision and notification letter via U.S. Mail as soon as the team has reviewed and authorized any awarded benefits, sir. Please feel free to contact us again after you have received this letter if you have any further questions in regards to this claim.

Thank you for contacting us and allowing us to serve you. If you have questions or need additional help with the information in our reply, please respond to this message or see our other contact information below."

Thank you in advance for any input you have. I am in the Phoenix VARO.

Diablo, good for you ~ its getting closer, but hard to say exactly 'when'. For instance, I was told last month my claim was rated, going through promulgation, so its been over a month now. Different details for each veteran, varo, some are retired, others not, some have pensions and some dependents play into the final details for a decision letter.

Wishing you a quick and fair outcome!

My claim has not even been for 9 months. Although it is just an initial claim, I cannot imagine the patience of many of the folks on this board. I've been a wreck emotionally while waiting :-)

I agree with Cowgirl, tho I doubt that is what you want to hear. A claim can be waiting for a decision for months, or even years.

I recieved an IRIS email, signed by the VARO manager, Christine Alford, promising that "I could expect an answer in 4 to 6 weeks."

I got the decision about a YEAR later..and even that was a denial.

Bottom line..they can tell you the moon is made of green cheese with IRIS..there is no accountability there either. It is just like the rest of the VA..they do just what they please and answer to no one, then cover up everything.

Diablo:

Many get confused with the original claim which is usually ruled on in 6 - 12 months and all the waiting caused by a denial or the VA making some kind of mistake or low ball that is appealed.

I suspect that your answer is days or weeks not a long wait in VA time.

Good Luck

Ugh. Did you appeal their decision?

  • 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
