Now The Wait.....



Just wanted to thank all who assisted with my crash course in VA procedure! I had never dealth with any of this before I received the Nehmer letter for my dad. I have submitted all information they asked for, plus some. So now we wait! It's horrifying to see how long some of you vets and widows have had to wait for these claims that you are so deserving of, but I know that is how the VA is. Dad never talked to me alot about his medical problems, but I do remember him being very frustrated trying to deal with the VA.

I wish you all the best of luck in whatever your battle with the VA is!!!

Armydaughter, It will take some time, wait for about 3-4 months then call 1-800 number, I hope you are set up on Ebenefit or if you can? May be in 3-4 months or closer to 6-8 months they might look at your file. After a 10 months call the 1-800 every 2-3 weeks. Always be nice :rolleyes: Good luck and God Bless!

I don't know about the Ebenefit, is this something I should look into or is for the veteran only?? I'm just his daughter, not a spouse so don't know if they would let me do that. Guess that is something else I can research while I wait :smile:

The VA doesn't let widows use the e benefits thing.Probably no survivor can use it.

When time passes and you want an update on the claim, call 1-800-827-1000 and click on the ebenefits # they give and then tell the VA rep you are a survivor of a veteran and cannot use e benefits.

Last time I called there was a waiting list for the reps and VA called me back within about an hour as to the status of my AO claim.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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
