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

Question

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.

    • 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.
