Ptsd Claim Dropped!

Question

I was told that my PTSD claim was dropped because I didnt respond to correspondence from the VA in a timely manner. I NEVER received these! I asked that my claim be reopened because I never received the notices. This was about 2 weeks ago, nothing yet. What should I do?

Do you have a VSO? If not didn't you wonder as to why you did not hear anything?

Anyhow make sure you put it in writing the circumstances as you believe them to be and keep a copy. Either send it to your RO or Fax it too!

That is about all that I know of at this point. Oh one other thing ask the RO to send you a copy of everything they sent out and where it was sent. Of course give them the right address. If you have an access to a fax machine ask to have them faxed.

Oh, the cruel irony of the VA. They blast from the mountaintops how they're bending over backward to help PTSD vets, but they can't grasp the concept that a person with PTSD might miss a deadline or lose a piece of paper. That doesn't even begin to take into account the way that they constantly lose papers (even with the Delivery Confirmation and/or Signature Confirmation) but won't admit that they often don't actually mail notices to the correct address.

Sorry this happened to you. I'd cry, too.

Don't expect the VA do anything in a short time period. Next, you really need to find out what you didn't get. Finally, can you say what you had sent in on your PTSD claim.

(Was the PTSD claim accompanied by any documents, evidence, diagnosis, etc. Often, the VA sends out generic letters, and these ask for such things as sources (addresses, etc of treating doctors, hospitals, and so forth.)

This may be what you didn't get, so the VA may have stopped doing anything, then used a non response from you to take the claim "off the books".

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
