Ro Doesn't Acknowledge Claim/docs Sent In


autumn

Question

my VSO filed a new claim 2 months ago. i usually have received a notice from RO that they did receive such things and that claim was proceeding and/or they required more info.

i've asked RO twice for such an acknowledgment, no response. VSO only says they filed it and mailed docs to RO, thats it.

shouldn't i have something that states they received the docs and claim request?

Hello Autumn, Yes, you should receive a letter notifying you that the VA has received your information and that they are working on it. I would suggest that if you do not get a notice fairly quickly to send another letter, remembering that everything should be sent Certfied mail with return receipt so as to not have any problems. You are only one of many and the Veteran must press the issues and make sure they cover their actions and process. NEVER GIVE UP. God Bless, C.C.

that is what i thought. in the past whether VSO or i sent in claim i would get a response in the mail. to make sure i understand, even if VSO sent the claim, i should still get something in mail they received it, yes?

thank you

When you send in a claim you should get a VCAA letter pretty soon. If you don't get a VCAA letter the VA has already violated your rights as a claimant and this is grounds for an appeal down the line. Since I live pretty close to my VARO I hand carry new claims to them and get date stamped copies. Otherwise, I send certified/return receipt as the Captain says. You can never, never trust these guys at the VA to do the right thing.

I am not sure where your claim is but it is possible that they are more than 2 months behind. I would call 800 827 1000 and see if they can help you.

  • 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.
