Next,

contact the BVA ombudsman, and inquire as to the status of your appeal.

I see this as step # 1.

I agree!

Did a VSO send in an I-9 for you or do you have proof of mailing it yourself?

A former local vet rep called me up one day asking me to help with a vet's claim.He sounded in great distress.

When I got over to his office he told me what happened. The vet gave him the I-9 and he ,the POA rep ,said he would send the I-9 to the VA right away.

He never did and forgot all about it and the appeal period had passed and the vet had called him for a status on the appeal.The claim was awful anyhow. He had tried to get the vet's personality disorder service connected.blink.png

When I told him that claim would NEVER succeed he wanted me to try and open a claim for PTSD instead.

I interviewed the vet, went over his SMRs, and all med recs.

The vet ,in my opinion had a personality disorder and had absolutely nothing to build a PTSD claim on.

So,luckily for the rep, the vet couldn't sue him.

It might sound unusual for a rep to call me but this guy also was the boss of the vet org office.blink.pngblink.pngblink.png

But this scenario does not happen often at all. It is always best, regardless of having a POA or not, to mail important stuff to the VA oneself and get proof of mailing from the PO.

yes form 9 was sent in on time in on time return receipt green card and i have copy of form 9 stapled to green card will try to call NSO or ombudsman

i like this site most important its me HOPE thats the most important besides the retro

if my effective date is moved does the new effective date count towards my 20 year vesting period where the VA finally leaves me alone??

“would like to know can a case be called back by the varo and then paid while waiting to go to the BVA???? “

Remanded BVA cases are often awarded at the VARO level due to the remand.

But I dont think that is what you mean here.

“the lawyers told me they wrote a brief so im sure their must be a dockett number ill BVA see what i can find out. “

Surely the lawyers have a Fax or email contact if they don't call you back.

Where did they send the 'brief' and did they send you a copy of it?

It is possible the VARO is still working on the claim and has not sent it to the BVA yet at all.

This happened to me before once years ago and then fairly recently .It isnt unusual at all.

It involved claims that were set for BVA transfer but were awarded at the Regional level before even getting a BVA docket number.

But it was also because I kept sending the VARO evidence and I knocked down every C & P they ever did regarding my claims.

Is it possible the 'brief' the lawyer's sent, caused the claim to still be worked on at the VARO level instead of being transferred to the BVA? erhaps the brief raised very important issues the RO didnt consider yet

However, vet reps and lawyers are given the opportunity to prepare a 646 form prior to a BVA transfer.

That 646 can often lay around a long time before it gets done and sometimes be prepared poorly.

It would be the same as a 'brief' in my opinion and if prepared correctly, it could certainly do wonders for a claim if any errors occurred in the VCAA letter or any probative evidence has not been considered yet by the VARO.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
