Yulookin-the White House as a new criteria regarding petitions filed with the Fed Gov.

If 5,000 signatures appear on the petition, then someone at the White House will review it.

https://wwws.whitehouse.gov/petitions#!/petition/create

I don't know how long my claim was at the AMC. They then sent it to Seattle RO and then back to Buffalo RO.

NONE of those entitys could read.

AMC is a stall tactic. AMC decisions are not published like BVA decisions are. I have read 2 AMC award letters and cannot figure out why they awarded the veterans involved and I feel these decisions will haunt the veteran in the future because they are wrong.

I feel you should contact the H VAC Sub Committee -Disability and Memorials -in writing.

http://veterans.house.gov/

Are you in Congresswoman's Buerke's district'- she would be a good start for contact as she is on this committee.

You can even submit testimony to this committee.

I didn't have time to prepare testimony the way I wanted to when the Sub Committee called me years ago-they used my letter to Sec Shinseki as testimony with my permission -but I suggest taking the time to properly prepare any testimony you want to submit for a future hearing on the claims process in the format at the H VAC site.

This is the first petition that has been filed recently under the new “5,000” signature criteria:

If Congress is actually serious about cutting government waste of funding, the AMC is the first place I would cut. Its a complete waste of money and does nothing to reduce the backlog of veterans claims. If anything, its a major cause of backlog.

About the only thing I found I could do to get my claim out of this dead zone, was keep sending in the evidence waivers to have the claim decided by the BVA and not the regional office level, (AMC).

It doesn't matter that you can't call the AMC. If you could, you can't believe a word they tell you.

There is ONE thing that is consistent about the AMC....It is never a good thing to have your claim there. I think it is a "holding tank" for claims to go while they await the Veteran to die, used primarily by management so they have an excuse when a senator calls and asks why this Veteran claim has gone on for x years without an answer. The managers response: "Its at the AMC". This excuse is used because most people, including senators, dont know the AMC is just a department of the RO. You see, this gives the RO manager an "out", when he explains...gee there is nothing I can do about your Vets claim, its at the Appeals Management Center. People "buy" that bull, so the VA keeps doing it. I agree with Yulooking in that the AMC is not needed. The claim is either in appeals, or at the RO, and the AMC does not need to have their "delay paws" on my claim. There are already enough "glitches" to last a lifetime, so we dont need any more with the AMC.

placing a bag full of crap on their doorstep and lighting on fire and ringing the doorbell would probably get their attention faster than a petition..

seriously... I think that the bastages only understand cash bribes,, errr..I mean donations..

update: sorry, out of frustration, I didn't have any useful answer... I just feel that unless a petition is done really good, it probably won't do much... but it maybe better than nothing...

wish I could do it right.. I would hate to ruin a good chance at it..

    • 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.
