Do an IRIS request as to the status of your claim. A congressional inquiry would also help. Otherwise it is impossible to to answer your question without actually working at the RO and pulling the claim. If you have a Service Officer, inquire from them where your appeal is in the process.

my vso (American Legion) would not directly answer my question,, she only said it used to take 8 months... and that answer was about 4 months ago.. and she works in the same buidling as the San Diego regional claims office is located..

I can only extrapolate that she has no clue...

I always receive the same response that the claims are worked in the order that they are received. Too my limited knowledge on this subject I believe there is no computer tracking data that they use. It must be the old fashion way such as I used when I was in the military. I had about 5 in boxes and 1 out box. The to do file was stacked in boxes, under the floor, ect. We only had type writers, no computers or even zerox machines for years.

If this is the same system the VA s still using, then its quite obvious what happens when the cleaning person accidentally bumps into your file which places your file into another holding pattern.:rolleyes:

I keep hearing that calling them, and bugging people, asking for inquiries only worsens the situation.. so I will not call for investigations... call me parnanoid, but I blieve that people at the va will reatliate and throw your file away or lose it if you rock the boat... I am hoping that other vets who hear things or know things will speak up... I am in a bad situation, and don't know how long I have to live.. having an evil rotten disease like I have (I have many bad diseases), I can get very sick and die quickly... I am not exagerrating... I suffer greatly.. I just want justice before things can get any worse.. Other vets can help other vets just by passing on any info on what's going on at some offices.. if there was staight honesty I would most likely never have gotten so sick to begin with... the system is broken and full of bad people... I need the decent people to only say anonymously if the offices in question are processing what years... or whatever else..

I truly believe most people qwould be unable to deal with the suffering I go through.. most people have no clue what real suffering is..

I know there are some excepetions with people who have less to live for... but I try to keep my sanity and push on.. but feel that some people in power either don't give a sh*t.. or are stupid...

they get way with this ...

I just want fairnesss... too much to ask...

Even though I report most injuries on active duty I never reported all, I screwed that up.. but I still have more than enough evidence to win.,. I just need honesty from the va..

    • 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:
