New Claim Question


Clayton0417

Question

Hello all,

I having been visiting this forum for the past few months, but this is the first time I have posted. I received this email today in response to an inquiry that I made, and would like to know what you all think.

Your case was rated on 6/29/2006. It is in the area that inputs the rating results into the computer. The rating decision has not been posted in the computer yet. Once the computer is updated with the rating decision, the case goes to another person that reviews the case and authorizes it. Then, you will be mailed a letter advising you of the decision.

[CRAVEY, DANIEL, VBAATLD]

I do have a VSO, but I never hear from him unless I call him. Right now he's been on vacation since July 3rd. Before he left, he told me on June 30 that my claim had been rated (he didn't know the decision) and that I would have to wait two weeks for the letter. I called the 800 # yesterday and was told that it was still pending. Do I have much longer to wait?

Wow! My cousin got out of the military in Columbia and stayed there. He told me that the usually process claims pretty quickly. He said I should've come back home (i'm from SC) and filed my claim instead of doing it in GA. I guess I should've listened. I'm at the 1 year mark since I filed. Thanks.

Your claim is with what is called the "Post Determination Team" at your regional office. Generally, once a claim has been rated by a Rating Veteran Service Representive (RVSR), it goes to the Post Determination Team where the rating gets promuligated, and normally doesn't take very long after that for you to receive the decision. I would give it another 2-3 weeks unless your decision involves a retro over $25,000.00, then it could take a little longer because then your decision requires a third signature. Hope this helps!

Its soon if you compare it to the wait before the decision was made. Fla Viking is probably on the money with his answer. Good Luck and you may want to consider an appeal if they short you.

It's been two weeks since my last post. As of this morning, I was told that my claim is still being reviewed and waiting to be authorized. It was rated on 6/29/2006. Is it normal for it to take this long?

They authorized my claim in January , 3 signatures, and then they denied it-

Authorization used to be the key magic word-now Finance is-

I would call them once a week to see what is what.

Do you have a vet rep? They might find out something soon too.

Yes, I have a vet rep. He's been telling me since Jun 30 to give it two weeks. Today he said that he won't know the outcome until I bring him a copy of the letter from VA. Then he gave me the same reply he's been giving me since Jun 30, "you're on the down side of this, the hard part is over, you'll have to wait until you get a letter in two weeks". On Friday, his assistant contacted someone she knows at the Regional Office who could only tell her that my claim wasn't denied but she could not provide any other information regarding percentages. The folks answering the 1-800 number tell me every week to expect a letter in 7-14 days. I've been calling them once a week since early June when I found out my claim was at the rating board.

Thanks

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
