Waiting For Signature..


KennyJ

Question

I called 800# regarding new claims that i have that have been at RO since March 2005. Rep said claim was finished but was waiting on some one to sign off on the claim. Does anyone know whether to expect good, bad, or whatever with this situation. There are six different conditions that was filed for on that claim. He also said that my Appeal of 2 years was awaiting on. I was told by Lawyer that I will be having Social Security ALJ Hearing in August. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds positive, but VA's policy is to not let the decision out, because it's subject to change before it's final.

Didn't understand the piece about the appeal.

Well I have an appeal claim for an higher % from the 20% they gave me for left knee osteo arthritis originally. Also have an Appeal for EED and TDIU. I was told by the Rep that the decision review officer was waiting on some type of info from the SSA. I am scheduled to have an ALJ hearing for SSDI in August. I guess they are waiting to see if I pass the SSDI hearing before rendering their decision. I Guess?

I think waiting for Signature means that there is money involved and you should get an answer quickly.

I really hope so, but won't believe it till I actually see it in writing. This has been a long roller coaster ride of 3 years. The wait has been eased greatly by the support and expertise that I found on this site. I have out through this site that nothing beats knowledge and patience.

I've been waiting impatiently for three months for two signatures needed due to high amount of retro. Just called today and was told only one signature was needed now so the first bum must have come back from his cofee break long enough to sign it. Now if the other guy needing to sign is not a lazy fat bastard maybe I'll see a letter some day. I'm thinking about not holding my breath anymore since this is four months since the low-ball 30% rating on a slam dunk 100% disability, which came four months after a BVA remand. It only took three years to go from filing initial claim to the BVA remand. Gosh its all happening so fast (not).

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

    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
