Flow Chart For Claims Process



Recommended Posts

  • HadIt.com Elder

The flow chart is what is supposed to happen to claims. Is there a option for "let claim sit on desk for six months gathering dust"? I don't think there is a clear timeline for claims. The VA works them when they get around to it. I filed a CUE claim at the VARO six years ago. It has been to the BVA and then to the Court and back to the BVA on remand. I had two DRO hearings on it at the VARO. Is a claim supposed to take 6 years and counting with no end in sight. No matter what the BVA says I will appeal right back to the Court unless I win everything. I will be lucky if this does not take ten years.

Yeah, there are certainly no time guidelines there!! From what sometimes happens I'm thinking there should be a notation showing a "Black Hole" in several of the boxes on the chart. This chart comes from a paperback I found online:

PTSD Compensation and Military Service (2007)

Sorry your CUE claim is taking so long. Good luck from here on.

By BVA remand was just denied on my CUE, so it is back to the Veterans Court I guess. VA claims are a black hole. My CUE was knocked back a year because of a clerical error on BVA's part. They used the wrong disability schedule when they denied my CUE. This is because schedule for disability ratings changed from 1972 to 1973 when my original claim was granted. Nobody knew this until my case got all the way to the Court. The CUE was made in 1973 at the VARO when my claim was granted. I started at the VARO level with this CUE and I have been to the BVA twice and court once. It is really all about money since I am claiming 100% since 1971 to 2001. I was rated 10% in 1973 retro to December 1971 when I was discharged. You see why they don't want to pay this thing or admit error. I should be the poster boy for horrible original decisions. I never got appeal rights nor any sort of pension exam. Plus 6 months of psychiatric records from my last duty station disappeared from the record. The VA excluded all positive evidence from the decision record and relied on testimony from an unidentified worker on the psychiatric ward to grant 10% based on alleged statement that I seemed " OK."

I posted a the link to a health flow chart ( a year or 2 ago) for healthcare under new passed, and was told never to do it again, and was told it was political.. it only had the name of the law which was named after the politician... it was a wild health care chart that took a very long time to follow the maze..

  • 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
