Is This Correct

Rate this question



A friend contacted me on Thursday of last week and stated that he received a call from the VA. He stated the person (VA) told him that his claim was in its final stages after 11 months of waiting. My friend retired in May 2010 and the VA just contacted him last week. On saturday my friend called me and stated that he received his Brown Envelope and he stated that he was granted 30%. Here is the Question, included in that letter was a statement attached to it saying that his claim for his kidneys has not been decided and they are still gathering more information from his doctors. I told him do not believe the VA and that they (VA) included his kidney claim with that 30%. Can the VA rate you while still gathering information on additional claims? this is his initial claim since retireing in May of 2010.


August 1990 - October 2010... 20 yrs, 2 months and 2 days exact....

For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

I have seen the VA rate thousands of claims and while they rate a claim they defer an issue til later. It happens every day. It is actually good for the VA to do this as the Veteran will have at least some money to get by on until the other issue or issues can be rated.


A Veteran is a person who served this country. Treat them with respect.

A Disabled Veteran is a person who served this country and bears the scars of that service regardless of when or where they served.

Treat them with the upmost respect. I do. Rejection is not a sign of failure. Failure is not an option, Medical opinions and evidence wins claims. Trust in others is a virtue but you take the T out of Trust and you are left with Rust so be wise about who you are dealing with.
