Neck Artritis Claim-Vcaa And 21-686C

Rate this question



Hello All,

Newbie here. I am the wife of a vet trying very hard to lean all that I can on this site. I've been helping my husband with he claims and we received a letter saying that they are working on my husband claim for neck arthritis. They also sent form 21-686c. From what I'm being told by vets in my neighborhood is that they will send this form out if you are or will be granted 30% SC'd. My husband is currently 20% SC'd for both knees. Does this sound like his claim will be approved? We have had good news before and then have VA pull the rug out from under us so I don't want to get my hopes up. Just wondering if this looks like it is to our favor. Thanks again. Looking forward to responses,

Greetings Wife of Vet,

I would not read anything into your receipt of this form. They sent me one back in 2006 within weeks of my file for increase when they wern't anywhere near making a decision. I have some pending appeals and they sent me the paperwork for my 18 YO son to apply for Chapter 32, benefits (educational benefits) three weeks later I received an IRIS telling me they were working on my appeal but had to send my files to the VAMC for a medical determination that the Dr. failed to address in the C&P exam, this clearly tells me they are no where near a decision.

You do want to promptly fill out that paperwork and send it in. If you delay it and a decision is made they will then have to open a claim for dependent benefits, which goes through the whole process again. (development, decision, notification, disbursement).

Best regards,
