Got My Ptsd Bva Decision?



Called my local DAV office to find out the status of my appeal. They checked in their system and they said BVA granted my PTSD claim but no %. Then I called BVA contact and the person there said the case was fwd to our local RO and that she didn't know the decision was. Can this be true? Why would our local DAV know the granted status and the BVA contact person not? The said it will take appx 45 days for any monetary award. Pls advise, thanks. Can this actually happen?

I am thinking that the BVA definitely granted the claim- but it still has to be rated by the VARO.

The BVA usually doesn't get involved with the actual ratings.

You should be getting a letter soon that would tell you more.

For some reason they give the heads up to the Service Organization first.

Berta is right, it sounds like the BVA granted the appeal. Your c-file will go back to your RO for an actual rating decision. Keep in mind, if the rating pecentage warrants a high amount of retro, then your copy of the rating can take a bit longer to get to you, as all retro awards over $25,000.00 needs a third signature.

If the veteran has a POA (power of attorney) the VA will give the SO a heads up on the actual rating before it is released to the veteran.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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.
    • 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?”
