Cathy, once the VARO gets its teeth into a claim and place a negative on the claimant, they turn into monstors. negative issue sticks into their mind and most likely its at the front of the claims file so they dont even bother looking at it. It is difficult to say the least.

You need to gather all medical information from then till now and get an independant medical opinion from a specialist who can explain it all to the VA.

That could be used at the BVA level.

Do you have an attorney?

Hang in there.

This is for the protection of the board and web site.

I approved and responded to your post earlier.

I replied somewhere else here to you with the BVA ombudsman's email addy-

they might be able to give you an estimate on how long the claims are taking there.

When you file a formal I-9 Appeal form, that form can remain at the VARO until they decide to transfer the claim to the BVA.

If you have a vet rep- he or she could tell you if they have reviewed the I-9 and filed a 646 with the VA.

The 646-for claimants with a rep on their POA and the I-8 Certification form has to be prepared by VA before the claim is actually sent to the BVA.

Have you used IRIS or called the BVA to find out exactly where the claim is?

Evidence can be submitted to the BVA at any time until they make a decision.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
