Question

It's been almost 8 months since filing for TDIU. Previously we were told that on Dec 6 there were 2 more phases. We called the 800# different times & were told the same thing. Today they said that the claim went to the final phase on Dec 16. Does that mean there WAS a decision, and what are we waiting for now?

Omg,

No - it does not mean (at this point) that there "WAS" a decision.

You are still just in a plain old "waiting" period.

Many times claims wil go back and forth to the different teams.

Here's some good reading for research - for you.

Write down the date you filed the claim and call your vso who works at the regional office. Ask them what date range is the RO actually working on?

Thanks everyone. I read the research Carlie recommended and, of course, I gleaned info that K will be awarded TDIU. The explanation that there really is no set route for the claim to follow still tells me it is up to the judgement of the humans in charge at VA. Ok Larry, my hourglass is almost empty! The stress of this claim has escalated K's SC of schizophrenia. He is flashing back to when he thought the guys in his unit were trying to kill him instead of the enemy. Now it's VA has it 'in for' him. And his meds had been working so well before this that I think we should have left the TDIU alone. I appreciate your patience at letting me sound off. But then, you all have been trained by experience to have LOTS of patience (with your claims).

Hello everyone! Big brown envelope came today for K (hubby). He is 100% with a catch. "a finding of incompetency is proposed".

They offer to administer the money or we can have an atty do it. However, later they say if the spouse does it she will be directly responsible for where it goes. Also, It seems they are holding the retro untill someone is appointed. anyone ever heard of this? Do I need an atty or can the RO help? Is that a good or bad idea (the RO )?

  • 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.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
