Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating.

just today. it was sent to the supervisor on friday last week. bad part?? the computers havent updated the "status" so they couldnt tell me yay or nay. poo! the anticipation is killing me and my mind is running wild. did he really know and just didnt want to tell me it was declined? he could see the letter was already mailed out. shouldnt it show if it was awarded or declined? how long will the computers take to actually "update" the status? gahhh.....a million and one questions.

called again today....they sd it was actually illegal to inform of the status over the phone. who knew! policy or law (dont remember) states it must be done via letter. but, when i was awarded my initial claim in 2009, they told me over the phone. :(

Just call the 800# and ask them what your Current rating is at this time! That way you will know either way!

Good Luck!

well, now im more than just pissed. im frustrated. a decision was made on tues this past wk. they couldnt tell me over the phone citing law. then dug a little deeper on here and someone sd they can fax it. i call, she says yes. never rcvd the fax. i call back next day and was told no, they cannot fax it. again, they cited law. i asked for another letter to be sent out and no, u have to wait 10 days. i ask what my current rating is and she sd unless the letter says otherwise, its the same. wtf??? so, she directs me to the regional AL since they helped me on the initial claim for benefits. mind u, that was in memphis,tn and i didnt use them this round. didnt think there was a need. it was pretty cut and dry. she goes on to say, they will still get a copy of the decision. i call them, the woman had no freakin clue what i was talking about. she sd that i am not in their system and she cant help. so, she gives me another # to call. wanna guess what it was?? the main VA 800#. so, here it is the following saturday after the decision was made and still no letter. our regional office is only 250 miles and there wasnt any of the bad wx between there and here. there was no call for delays on that mail route. and just to make it that much more frustrating, the tags for our van were sent from memphis,tn on wed/thurs this week and we got them today.

i just do not understand why it is taking so long to get the letter. all this mayhem makes me think it was declined and nobody wants to tell me.

deltawife - hang in there....

  • 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.

    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
