1151 And Still Waiting

Rate this question

Question

Greetings once more Hadit Members. I have not been in for a considerable time but now that my claim has been forwarded to the BVA for review, how much time can that take? Secondly. is there a way to check the claim's progress?

Thanks

Josh

Hi to Berta, Carlie, and others from the "Old Forum" Hope life finds you well.

TBird have not sent in my contribution yet as there still has been no decision. When you get a Donation from me, it will be a message the claim was FINALLY reviewed and approved. BTW They "misplaced" the MRI{s that show the error in full detail ... missed brain absecess. Should have been pretty hard to miss those you see on the attached image. that is unless the MRI is UNREAD.

The BVA has a phone number and you can call and ask. They are usually much better about telling you how long the wait will be than VARO.

Josh,

Hi there - good to see your post.

When your calim has been transfered to the BVA and logged in they

are supposed to send you a letter to let you know it's now under their

jurisdiction, and that you can continue to send them evidence.

Have you gotten that yet ?

BVA does not move any faster than the RO's and in most cases I

suggest to prepare for somthing in your claim to be remanded to

either AMC or your RO via AMC, which means more waiting time.

I've been at BVA almost 2 years.

:)

This may not be exactly what you are looking for, but I asked for the docket number of my claim and I was able to find it online when I went to "search decisions" on the VA website.

I think the ombudsmans email addy is at the BVA web site-

it should be here too-I posted it under ombudsman BVA.

2 years is about right for a remand these days.

I received an informal remand in 2006, from the BVA- the RO failed to act on it and then I got formal remand last Sept- but I dont think they posted my case there yet-

I had an issue with the OGC and didnt hear from them for 3 months.

I sent in more info to trigger them to acknowledge the matter.

The OGC lawyer called me up and said Berta-I remember us discussing this and then getting what you sent but I hate to tell you this- we lost it all-

I was ticked and then said I was used to VA saying this and had to resend all the stuff again-

My point is -do you have anything new to send to the BVA? Something that would trigger a response?

Have you tried IRIS system too?

If a lot more then 2 years have passed-I would definitely check this out.

If you need the BVA chairman's phone number I have it-

but they would suggest the ombudsman or IRIS too at this point.

Good Morning Carlie No I have not received anything that would indicate the claim was transfered to the BVA. This information was given to me by the VFW rep "mailman" who does nothing but forward emails it seems.

hmmm This system works ,,,Hmmmmm sometimes.... Possibly .....maybe... maybe not...
