C&p/rating Results


I try calling the hotline number twice in the last 2weeks and the recorded message saids they can not access my record at this time. WTH.... My last c&p was in feb. and I been waiting 2 months of the results. Check my mail regualr and nothing. Everything was done QTC. Please do not tell me I need to go to VAMC or the VARO because I'm overseas and we do not have one. I mean my claim number is my social right? It's getting frustrating because I'm getting in a deep end with my financial crisis. My VFW rep told me he will do system and that was last month. I try contacing him several times and no reply back. Oh yeh ebenifits. well I need a premiuim account to check status, but sonce I do not have a VARO. I'm screwed out of that one.

This link indicates Foreign Claims are handled by the Pittsburg VARO.


It also has this contact info:

VA Regional Office

Foreign Claims

1000 Liberty Avenue

Pittsburgh, PA 15222-4004

Telefax: 412-395-6057

Internet Contact:   Select (Benefits Issues Outside the U.S.) / Any other country

On the internet contact-they mean the VA IRIS System.

The link will take you to IRIS and you need to fill out the form and then click on above link when it asks in pull down menu on line a question to determine the origin of the claim.

I suggest you ask for email or snail mail response and not phone call in order to ave hard copy of wat they say.It might take a few days for them to email you a link and you need to click on the link to access the response.

I might have a few more Pittsburg contacts and will post them here.

this is more frustrating then i expected

Well I called the VA and they actually have an appeal from which I did back in 2009 I believe. This was for the PTSD and the tinnitus because I never had an exam done and the only claim they have in the record is the scar on my arm which I claim for in 2010

Now my question is will everything get reevaluated since I did my PTSD and tinnitus exam this year feb 2011. I don't think none of my exams have been submitted yet by the QTC examiners to the VA because the appeal is still there and the muscle scar tissue is still pending..

Please let me know your thoughts...

Thank you

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
