Tracking A Claim

Question

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to track a claim? I submitted my claim two weeks ago. I know it is a lengthy process from all I've read, but is there anyway to check on status? I've also read I should be getting a letter, but there was no indication from the person at the VA as to when I would get it.

Thanks for the help!

You can use the IRIS system via the VA, or you can call the VARO every month or so to check up. Really, it is a black hole and you must wait. Just make sure you can document that you filed the claim and evidence.

Fleet,

Welcome to Hadit.

Is this a question regarding an Original Claim (filed on a 21-526 form) ?

How long have you been separated from active duty ?

This is a good site to get access to. It gives you visibility on your claims and its status. Just follow the instructions and register. Make sure you get the premium account level 2 access in order to get the full benefits of the site. Without it you will not be able to see you claim status. https://www.ebenefits.va.gov/ebenefits-port...ger/eb/veterans

Your claim could still be in the VARO mail room.

In about 3 weeks or maybe within 3 months -you will receive a VCAA letter telling you exactly what evidence you will need for your claim.

There will be a response form enclosed.

I have had luck with the Phoenix DAV.

This office has a good process and has helped me out immeasurably.

Once they had my signed permission to act as my sole agent with the VA I was able to give them copies of all documentation and forms for forwarding to the VARO directly upstairs.

This ensured that my copies had copies at the DAV and all were a backup to all documents the VARO was supposed to have.

The DAV would also keep me advised of the progress of the file and whether the VARO needed anything else.

This was a good experience relative to previous attempts at crossing the wilderness.

I haven't use the link in an earlier post except to register.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
