Nothing Short Of A Miracle


#1Cavtrooper

Question

I post on Monday how I contacted an agency in Washington D.C. about my situation with my claim. He told me to have my phone with me that I will be contacted by Houston within 5 days. My anxiety got the best of me so I call Mr. xxx back today and I ask him which dept. at Houston Varo did he contact and he said he couldn't tell me that and "trust me you WILL hear from them." Well I checked ebenefits this morning and still read preparation for decision. (where it has been since Dec 14) I checked again at 3:30 pm today and claims status read "PENDING DECISION APPROVAL"

You should post who you contacted. That kind of info needs to be passed on to the rest of us that have been waiting.

Yes it would be great to know if there is anouther avenue we can use outside of going to a congressman or senator to complain. I'm on 20 months for an initial claim (Sept 2010) and all it's doing is collecting dust and they have everything to decide on it since Feb 2011. BTW Phoenix VARO.

  • 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
