I thought I saw this here yesterday but could not find it- here it is: Unfortunately the stats didnt come out like they should- the VA link has it in better layout.

Although this VA Status report accounts for only 37,796 of the anticipated 86,000 AO claims-VA had projected along with the new regulations-

almost 50 % of the claims have been decided and granted as of the preparation of this VA Report Card.

It does not account for any claims that could have been denied nor does it reveal the potential awards of SMC for veterans and as accrued benefit for their widows due to the new AO presumptives that have been absorbed into these figures (I hope)

One thing is for sure- VA is working fast on these claims and I almost believe that they want to decide most if not all of them by year's end.

If VA can make the extraordinary effort to decide a whopping 37,796 AO claims within less than 2 months after the regs became law-

it certainly shows that they can reduce the backlog for ALL claims.

Based on this report their actions are quite commendable.

The training was intensified for VA employees who are specifically addressing the Nehmer claims.

What if VA intensified training for raters to specialize in certain areas such as PTSD claims, spinal disability claims,

widow's widower's claims, SMC claims, TBI claims,CUE claims, etc-

it could perhaps make a difference in the backlog.

In one response I got from VA since filing my CUE claim in 2004 they told me it had been given to a CUE 'specialist'.

I didn't know VA had any CUE specialists and found that this person couldn't read evidence anyhow.

I think they made that up but still it could be a key way to get good attention on specialized claim's issues.

  • 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
