E-Mail Messages From The Va



I think I just got the message. I just received 75 duplicate e-mail messages from the VA informing me that there is a partial shut down of the web site this weekend. Of course you have to access the website first to see what the message is about.'

Talking about an overkill. And what or who do I care if that site is down anyhow?

I am up to about ten today so far. I think the person sending the email has fallen asleep and his head is resting on the send button. Or they are dead and no one has checked on him before leaving for the day. Either way, I too, got the message....

I just got home from Bingo and had another 350 e-mail messages-I hit the spam button on all of them and deleted them. I don't need any messages from them-none of this is any worthwhile messages for any VET.

They act like they are doing us a favor. Well, If they were to send you a message and let you know that they approved your claim, or expect a retro-that would be a worthwhile message. I would suggest hitting the spam button for your e-mail and hopefully that stops this malarky business!

Make sure you copy and keep all IRIS responses.

I have IRIS responses that verify VA in Phila had my C file, and my AO IHD claim and my SMC CUE claim under Nehmer (after they found the AO IHD claim they had 'lost')

I also have email from the VSCM of the Philadelphia VARO confirming that on the IRIS thread.

I have notes from 800# with names of the reps I spoke to over the last 16 months and in some cases their 'confirmation' code number. They wont give you their last name but must give you this code number if you ask for it.

I had additional correspondence with the Phila VSCM and enclosed again my claims under Nehmer, just to make 100% sure the IRIS replies were true.

My Nehmer letter said they only needed one document, which I promptly sent by priority mail.

My claims and C file have apparently been destroyed- based on the decision I received this Monday.

Or those status calls to 800# and the IRIS emails I have here were blatant lies based on the decision I got Monday and asked VA to CUE.

My complaint on all this is with the VBA.I also have a VA witness statement that it went there.

Although I filed 2 service complaints at IRIS on this- I cannot really expect a truthful response from IRIS so I used a different channel to get my complaint to someone at VBA who try to resolve this.

I have over 20 years of VA stuff. Do not throw anything away- even dated envelopes from them.

I can re- copy everything they destroyed (if that is the case here) and have had to do that countless times over the last 17 years anyhow when my other stuff was lost or destroyed.

You might need to get a large filing cabinet at some point and buy manila folders by the boxful, but it will pay off if you ever have to re construction stuff that VA lost, misplaced ,or destroyed. (and keep your USPS mailing receipts and print off the USPS tracking confirmation to prove the VA received your stuff. I have a stack of USPS slips and confirmation receipts.)

Actually the issue that was going on was that someone sat or fell asleep on the keyboard at the VA that let unlimited e-mail messages go out for the same issue. That there site was down this weekend. I received over 750 messages for the same message. I actually stopped counting. I selected all of them and hit the spam button. Once they get there act together and stop cluttering up by e-mail with this garbage, I may let them to send again.

But for meantime, they have lost there privilege of e-mailing me anything. I will check the site my self once a week for anything that may be important for my other claims.

    • A VA Compensation and Pension Examiners Perspective
      A VA Compensation and Pension Examiners Perspective

      This person is going to judge you. It’s their job, and that is why you are there. To be adjudicated fairly. How would you like to be remembered? A scuzzy stereotypical veteran? Or a troubled one who is doing the best they can?

      Do not talk about alcohol or drug-related issues. You are not there to be assessed for those problems. You are there to be evaluated for your psychiatric functioning as today relates to your service history. If the examiner asks about alcohol or drugs, politely remind them that you are not there for those issues if you’ve ever had them, but for how impaired you are in your daily functioning. It’s best to avoid even talking about them. Got a VA horror story? I can tell you a worse one. Don’t waste your time with how badly you believe you’ve been mistreated. The examiner only has a short time to figure out how impaired you are, and they need the facts, concise sentences, and not rambling rants that lead nowhere.

    • VA Math, Confusing, Right? Calculate Your Final Rating Percentage!
      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic 

      “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service-connected and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating.

    • Post in I need some help, please
      If you are looking for help taking care of him something like a home health aide that comes in during the week and helps with what he needs help with. For this I would contact your local VA hospital and ask to speak to the Social Worker, explain your situation, ask for help and how to proceed.

      If you are looking for additional compensation in the form of Special Monthly Compensation check out this video from CCK Law I think it will give you a good idea what it is and how to go about applying for it.

      For example there is a Special Monthly Compensation Rate for TBI try reading this article from The Veterans Law Blog on SMC T It is a subscription site but it allows you to view 3 articles for free a month.

      Special Monthly Compensation (SMC)

      I hope this helps.

  • 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
