Sent My Vso A Second Letter Aking If She Sent The Va My Request


I sent my VSO a letter requesting she request my case be moved up because of my bad health. I asked her two months ago to ask the VA if I qualified to have my case advanced under 38 C.F.R. § 20.900 . She never gave me a response, so I do not know if she had done what I requested on my behalf as my VSO for the American Legion.

So, I faxed her again asking if she did what I asked, and what was the response if any.

Here is some of what I sent here (again).

Isent (Faxed) a request to you to send a request to the VA to requestmy case be moved up, because I believe I qualify for my case to bemoved up, due to serious health issues. My disease is an Auto-Immunedisease (Necrotizing Pancreatitis, with complications (PancreaticPsuedocysts, Splenic Vein Thrombosis, and many more serious healthissues.).

I am asking if I fall under 38C.F.R. § 20.900


MY random thoughts while lying here sick pissed off...

I just don't understand why communication is so bad with so many offices, with anyone having to do with the VA...

a simple yes or no is better than nothing.. I relalize I am among many thousands of Veterans asking for help... but a simple answer,, is that too much to ask...

I relalize that some people are sicker than others, but I doubt that most are not as in as bad of condition... maybe a lot are, but percantage wise, No.

If these condtions don't qualify me just say so... stop jerking me off.. Who is watching the VA???

I asked her two months ago

I'm going to be straight forward and suggest you change POA to some other VA advocate. Two months without even a phone call tells me her priorities doesn't include you!

I would suggest that you contact and ask VA directly, depending where your claim is could cause further delays in a decision. By contacting VA directly, VA should be able to give you a quicker response if you qualify for an advancement on the docket and then you will have to wait for a decision.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
