Are you wanting to also change the organization that reps you or just

the SO that is assigned to you ?

To change the organization that reps you, I would notify them and VA by mail.

Is there a reason you think changing will get you better help ?

Where will you change to and why them ?

To change - or fire - a VSO, use FA Form 21-22 http://www.vba.va.go...-21-22A-ARE.pdf .

I'm changing because the one i'm with now doesn't do anything for me, he tried to talk me out of appealing even, and i've pretty well done the majority of my claim myself. Plus everyone i talk to about him says they've had trouble with him too. The older gentlemen i've talked to tell me to go to the DAV, so i'm going to switch over to there, because anything is better then what i'm getting.

atver,

i was in a similar situation with a vso. his incompetence made me so irate that it made me delve into cfr laws etc pertaining to veterans rights. i read and read and did my own home work and got to a point where i told him what to do after carefully research. meanwhile he blew out of the organization. i then got real lucky and now have a very keen vso which i click with. looking back i should have requested another vso and still delved into veterans rights.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
