Question

Good morning all -

I filed an appeal for a decision re: arthritis. According to my VSO, they failed to do a range of motion test and several other exams as part of the determination. When I received the original rating, they rated me at 40% for knees (without bilateral %), reduced to 20% for a pre-existing condition and 10% for the rest of my joints. In my NOD, I made it clear that I had no pre-existing conditions prior to military service as was NOT noted in my entrance documents (thank God I keep everything). So, I appealed.

This is what my timeline looks like so far. I requested a Video Telecon, but haven't heard anything yet (still too soon, I presume):

07/08/2008 - Local VA Office Decision - RO

02/11/2009 - Notice of Disagreement (NOD) - RO

02/17/2009 - Appeal Pending - BVA

02/23/2010 - Statement of the Case (SOC) - RO

03/24/2010 - Substantive Appeal (Form 9) - RO

12/15/2010 - Certification of Appeal - RO

So, is this good, bad or just plain normal?? Also, can anyone speculate when I could expect notification of a Telecon date? I've emailed my VSO several times, but she hasn't replied. Also, at what point can I call the BVA to find out info?

I also just read Wing's post re: waiver of RO Consideration. Should I file this now?

Appreciate all anyone can offer.

just,

Are you sure this the timeline above is correct.

Seems to me it would be

07/08/2008 - Local VA Office Decision - RO

02/11/2009 - Notice of Disagreement (NOD) - RO

02/17/2009 - Appeal Pending - DRO

02/23/2010 - Statement of the Case (SOC) - RO

03/24/2010 - Substantive Appeal (Form 9) - RO

12/15/2010 - Certification of Appeal - from RO to BVA

Carlie,

Thanks for the review. I just copied what was on eBenefits as it was shown on the page. This is also my first appeal, so I really don't know what to expect when (only from what I can read in the forums). What I read in your comment is that the RO has certified and transferred the appeal? That's what I'm not clear on: where is the package, and who do I bug about the status....

Thanks!

just,

Have you gotten any letter from the BVA yet saying they have received

your claims file.

You can try giving the BVA a call at (202) 565-5436 and answering a few questions

for them and then asking them if they have received your claims file yet to be under

their jurisdiction.

Carlie -

Again, many thanks. No, no letter yet. I'll try the number you provided.

PS: Congrats on the back-pay and welcome to the 90% club!

  • 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.
