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

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!


      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
