Could be Texas Veterans Commission.

Thanks. Why would this entry be made? I am not familiar with procedures enough to know why they would make this entry.

As I recall, I spoke with a VSO at the clinic when I went to get my ebenefits account started. Is this the confirmation that their representation is on record?

If you didn't fill out an 11-22 representative appointment form, TVC is not really your representative. However, I can understand how it might happen. TVC and the VSO get credit for veteran's representation.

TVC is actually your representative, not a specific VSO, unless the 11-22 named a specific individual.

Having them listed this way may help you, or not. It can speed up your claim, or, conversely, help get it screwed up. This depends upon the TVC VSO's actions, or lack of them.

Your situation does highlight a problem, in that information entered into a vet's VA file becomes gospel to the VA, even when it's far from being accurate.

In this case getting it corrected/changed, if you deem it necessary, is not easy, in that you need to do something (Fill out another 11-22), yet not too difficult if you feel it's necessary.

I changed my representative about a year or so ago from the state veterans department to a lawyer qualified/admitted to practice before the VA and in the federal district court.

This single action seems to have made the VA a bit more responsive, and above board in it's actions.

One result was movement of part of my claim that had languished, awaiting VA action. Seems that the VA decided to award administratively (Which they should have done to begin with), rather than

send the case to the BVA, and get it remanded right back. At least I ended up with the VA paying retro, and a major increase in compensation payments. The lawyer got 20% of the retro.

Since this resulted in an increase of several hundred dollars a month in compensation, the lawyer was well worth it.

As I recall, I spoke with a VSO at the clinic when I went to get my ebenefits account started. Is this the confirmation that their representation is on record?
