Went To Authorization But Sent Back To Rating Board?



Well called 800# Monday about claim from March 2005 and was told that the Claim had a decision but it was waiting to be signed off. Called yesterday and was told by a different Rep that tha claim had went to the Authorization department but had been sent back to the ratings board . He said has it had some type of code(4192) and they had moved the date to June 4 to be acted upon i guess. Had anyone ever had any experience with something like this. :mellow:

Kenny -I found this in M21-1:

" (6) 4192 FROM EMPLOYER. This field is used to generate a letter to the former employer at the address shown in the name and address field requesting completion and return of VA Form 21-4192."

But it seems to be that letter would have been generated long ago if you are in rating board after authorization-

Would it make sense?that they needed to check with a former employer you had? Maybe they are waiting for one reply-to the 4192 request?

The only other thing I found at M21-1 with this 4192 in it -is this- basically the same thing:

b. Employment. VA Form 21-8940 requires the veteran to furnish an employment history for the 5-year period preceding the date on which the veteran claims to have become too disabled to work and for the entire time after that date. It is essential that VA Form 21-8940 contain the work history. In addition, request each employer during the 12-month period prior to the date the veteran last worked to complete and return a VA Form 21-4192, “Request for Employment Information in Connection with Claim for Disability Benefits.” Forms indicating only that the veteran retired will routinely require additional development to obtain information as to whether the veteran’s retirement was by reason of disability, and if so, the nature of the disability for which retired.

They said three authorizors signed off on one of my claims Jan 30,2006 then it went to rating board- still there- then I got a letter to verify my marital status-

it almost seems like what you are going through-

the claims get to rating, someone has authorized and signed them- but they dont have all the info yet that they need and it sits at a rating board until they get it. That seems odd to me and different from the way it used to be-

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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.
    • 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
