How Do I Get My Paperwork Moving


basham

Question

I called to find out what the status of my reconsideration. Am told that yes all the evidence requested is in, to include paperwork from ssd and c&p exam with addtional records from my VA Doctor backing my condition. I have been rated as imcompetent with a 60% rating, I guess the other 40% is suppose to go to work. I have also put in my paperwork for UID. Finances are tough for me and all i can get out of them is yes its all here. Please lead me in the right direction, I need some advice is there someone that can help me outside an Attorney. Everything is in and I am sure I will get 100% with UID. Is there someone else to speak with?

There is no one to speak with that can help you advance the

progress of your claim issues.

You're in line - waiting with a million others.

When they are done with your claim issues they will notify you.

Watch out for the NOD time limit (one year after the decision)...as even if VA appears to be working on a reconsideration request- if no award is made before the NOD year time limit, you lose the appeal rights regarding the NOD,if one isn't filed.

There is discussion here on Reconsideration requests.

We had a DAV NSO in the Reconsideration threads here who insisted my statement above was wrong.

I gave links in the thread to BVA decisions that prove what I stated.

A NOD must be filed within one year after a denial, regardless of any status of a Reconsideration request.

I filed a NOD within days of my NOD deadline on a Reconsideration request.

Although it appeared the VA was working on the request,based on correspondence from them, I didn't take any chances and filed the NOD.

That specific claim has been pending since 2004 at the Buffalo VARO.

If your evidence is good, you might receive an award prior to the NOD deadline which would be great.

There is one thing you can do and that is tell the VARO that you are ready for them to rate and use the information they have. You would be surprised how much that can speed up a claim.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    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.

    Examples:

    • 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.

    Note:

    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?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
