Question

ATLANTA RO

Week ..........................................% of Claims OVER 125 Days ........................................# of claims OVER 125 Days

12/6/2010 .....................................................45.9%......................................................................12,338

12/13/2010....................................................46.8%......................................................................12,714

12/20/2010....................................................47.9%......................................................................13,166

12/27/2010....................................................49.5%......................................................................13,784

01/03/2011....................................................51.3%......................................................................14,306

01/10/2011....................................................53.1%......................................................................14,906

01/15/2011....................................................54.4%......................................................................15,345

01/31/2011....................................................57.6%......................................................................16,491

02/07/2011....................................................59.1%......................................................................17,191

In just 2 months the ATLANTA RO has added another 4,853 claims to their OVER 125 days roster for a new total of 17.191 claims over 125 days.

Thats a 13.2% jump.

BY THE END OF FEBRUARY, 2011 Atlanta will join the list of most unproductive RO's in the entire VA organization when they top 60% of their claims being over 125 days in production. What happened to the PLEDGE to get claims processed in LESS than 125 days?

EXCUSES is all you get. The numbers don't LIE the VA DOES......

At what point will someone from Washington step in and say enough is enough with Atlanta?

Try to remember that manpower is sometimes overrun with requests. I realize that we are all on the same bus, waiting for results. Patience is hard to come by sometimes. However, they also get burdened with the constant calls from everybody on the planet that feels as if their claim is the oldest and most important one. I am not here supporting them, I am not behind the lines. However, they are a form of customer service, and for the most part I think they try their hardest to get things done in a timely manner. I am also one of the claims, but in a different RO. Let's all just try andf keep cooler heads and hope for the best.

You can request to have your claim moved to any RO that you want. You do not have to use the RO is your state.

Again, let's all try and keep a cool head,,,this will prevail in the end. They are all human and work for a living. There are procedures and regs in place to use as a guideline by the RO's. You have the ability to either be patient or move on to another RO. And...no she is NOT smokin anything. She is only trying to moderate and give you information/advice, not be adversarial. I'll apologize to you for him Sharon.

Atlanta just transferred a claim of mine. Didn't know a thing about it, until I got a Nehmer notice, etc. a few days ago from Bay Pines VA of all places.

The claim has an EDD & claim date of 05-06, and has been wandering around in various stages at Atlanta. Once I got a lawyer involved, (2009)

some of the secondary conditions were actually rated last summer, with a low five figure retro. Just to add insult, Atlanta did not add my case to the Nehmer list given to NVLSP?

(Nehmer class counsel) as of December 2010.

One more award, plus a Nehmer related claim would equal the 160% bit.

I suspect that's why several items (currently on appeal) were rated at 0%, and others were low balled.

Had the VA behaved in a reasonable manner, I would have been happy with just 100% T&P in 06. Now, due to the long hassle, I'll fight for everything the law allows.

  • 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.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
