Question

I had five claims I filed back in October from a far and away city in AZ. Have not heard squat so I have called the VA Regional and they are working on it. This goes on and on. No exam, letters from VA etc. Finally come to find out someone just recieved them and put all the paperwork in the file without entering them into the VA network. Also one of them had a wrong SS number on the DD214 which we knew about and we sent the DD215 correction in. Again some person probably the same one who did the other claims, filed this claim under the service number which and why the claim is lost. Finally I told them they had the 21-22 to show I was the vet rep but because it was under the wrong number I was not his rep. I finally went down there and asked for them to bring the file down, and we found all the paperwork just stuck in there. None of it being worked. They got the DD215 and the 21-22 then realized that all the submitted paperwork was correct and that they just forgot to enter it and the4 correction of the SS. Now I have inquires into the other claims. Geeezzzz then they wonder why we get so riled up and frustrated.

This is SOP for my VARO. They halted work on one of my claims due to not having a DD214. I had been SC'ed for 30 years at that time. You have to stay on their backs. Just realize you have to fix things if you want it to move. The VA does not look into your file once a claim is done. This can be good and bad.

they did it on my dads claim for A&A saying they did not have his DD214. I asked them how could that be since they had it years before then they granted him things B-4. Told them to get by their fax.

  • 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.
