Decision Letter

Question

well I got letter from the VA today. They said I did not respond back to a letter they wrote me 8/9/11 there fore my claim was denied and final. I never got a letter from the VA to respond to. But here is the clinker, I never appied for any of them, my VA Dr must have written a request. I do know she asked a lot of question about my MOS job while in Viet Nam.I was a K9 handler/point man. However, I got an appointment to attend PTSD group session, which I did attend. I also ask for an appointment to see a head dr.(still waiting on that). I will go to my local VSO Monday and see what is going on and file a CUE. Any suggestions on what I need to ask /say or do? THANKS

HolyCow, If you never recieved notice, appeal that decision and tell them they must have sent it to the wrong address, some other veteran. If they never sent you Notice, the claim is definately not final --and remains pending. Think Due Process rights. I always thought the veteran had to actually SIGN their claims. I know a VA doctor can send evidence to support an "informal claim", but that informal claim has to become a formal alized with th veteran's signature. ~Wings

Hollis,this is just my guess and opinion.after reading some of your post,i see you had a C&P on 11/21/2011 for increase for service connected ptsd and when, schedule a C&P va uasually mail a "VCAA NOTICE TO RESPONSE LETTER" telling you what they have received from you and what they have done and the information they need from you,this must have been the letter they send you on 8/9/2011.So my question to you is,when did you get the call of letter from VA scheduling you for a C&P? also could you download your decision letter,so hadit can better help you.THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE TO YOUR COUNTRY!

Hi Mobie16r, I know I said I had a C&P,(my mistake) however it wasn't, it was just a group session. I have had a session with my regular VA doctor on my high blood pressure when the the PTSD came up and she asked me several questions and then told me yes I quilfied for PTSD. Shortly there after I got an appointment to the MH building, there I was put into a group session. After the meeting I aske DR marti for a appointment with the head DR. Then I got this letter, no to worried about it I will go to my local VSO on Monday and we will work it out. WELL I HOPE SO!!! Once again thanks for your reply and concern.

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
