Prood Request For Reconsideration Was Missed

Rate this question



Sorry - fingers not working the way they should - title should be "Proof"....

Last year, I requested reconsideration for a denied claim. The VA claimed they never received the request, so I ended up taking a day off from work and submitting the NOD by hand. In the mean time, I requested via IRIS status on all of this. I then asked my VSO if they had a copy of the request. I recently received it; the latest IRIS response stated that if I had proof, I should send it in ASAP.

Question: has anyone had this happen? Why would the VA ask for a copy now? Would this proof move my request to the top of someone's stack?

john -

Yes, I did. I've been very fortunate that out of 11 trips through the system that this is the first Iv'e had any real trouble getting results. I just can't seem to get the VA to budge on this one, and my frustration and anxiety are getting the best of me. I know - I'm turning into a 'watcher' over this but I can't help it. This should be a no-brainer and I'm looking for anything that will help bring it to resolution. The appeal I have is at 2 years, 2 1/2 months, so I expect a wait. This is a simple issue with plenty of documentation and proof of treatment while in service. Also, just had a message from QTC re: an assessment for Asthma. Any ideas what to expect??

Thanks for readin' the rant...

I think I would do as Yulooking said to do, but I don't know what will mean for your claim. It seems they never worked on your reconsideration . You filed the NOD within a year so you are covered there. I don't know if your reconsideration just goes away or if they might treat it as a NOD. This is why it is good to keep an eye on the shot clock when you file the reconsideration because if you had not filed the NOD you might be out of luck according to some technical booby trap. I would go to the QTC exam.
