How Dro Violated 38 Cfr 5107

Question

Guest Berta

B)

Dont know where the topic is-

I stated in my email to the VA on Saturday that she did not do this:

Duty to Assist regs- 38 CFR 5107 (a)

(they are lucky I didnt need to get to (:blink: B)

the VA "shall make reasonable efforts to assist a claimant in obtaining evidence necessary to substantiate the claimant's claim for benefits under a law administered by the Secretary." 38 CFR 5107 add Pub L No 106-475,paragraph 3"

The DRO, by failing to open my submissions and by failing to read them,could not 'obtain' the evidence (all was medical evidence)she (VA) had from me and thus she violated VA's Duty To Assist.

There was more to it too-but I made point to VA this failure alone and the failure of her to perform DRO duties and responsibilities in M21-1 as previously posted prevented me from filing a response to the SOC.

She CUED (or the VARO director there did=per my vet rep)on 38 USC 5107 and it was been already expedited Wednesday for the actual de novo review.

The 21-1 stuff will prompt her to get some training.Or a pay cut-

utter incompetence and of all people to screw with-

ME! B)

Berta,

Sorry it has taken me so long to access this post.

I had thought your previous post on this issue said USC 5107

and that's why I couldn't understand what you were saying.

I couldn't find any USC 5107 but did find it in CFR.

Thanks for helping.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
