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..

    • 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.
