New Evidence

Question

What happens to new evidence if a veterans submit if after his/her file goes back to BVA after it was remanded? Will the new evidence cause it to get remanded again or will BVA use the evidence and make a decision. The new evidence is on a claim that was denied, the veteran appealed it and VA never processed it, so BVA remanded it and a new C & P exam was given in 2009. Now I have more evidence after the C & P exam but BVA has not made their decision.

pete992,

Yes, the BVA can remand it back to VARO again for their consideration.

My suggestion is to submit a signed Waiver of VARO Consideration, to the BVA

and specify that it is for the new additional evidence you just sent them.

Here's a link to where a copy of this Waiver is posted.

I would do this ASAP and mail it RRR.

Then I would wait about 15-20 days after I got the RRR back and call the

BVA to verify they have it of record.

jmho,

Thanks Carlie, I was thinking that but I was not sure. I have a M. E. from a VA doctor that I think will help my appeal and my newly denied claim.

OK my brain is just about out of it, Can I just re-type this waiver on a blank sheet of paper and sign, date, print my name and SSN and forward it to VA or does it have to go on this dark copy.

pete992,

I guess you could make one up yourself.

Can't you go into your print properties and lighten it prior

to printing ?

I tried that so it looks like I will be typing from scratch.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
