Movement From Gathering Evidence



Hello all Hadit members and guests,

Great news today when I got back from my morning VA appointments, where I included a stop by the RO to check on the hardship from last week. The person who tried to help me said no hardship was in my file. he said he would physically go get my file and see where it stands. I delcined this due to the fact I didn't want to go backwards. So I blew it off. I get home and someone from the VA whose name and voice I don't recall. I called the number back and it was the person putting my claim together. She wanted to verify that I didn't have an NEW items for discovery. I told here, everything you need is in my VA Medical. She confirmed that all my claims are conneccted to my service. Which I told her all of the things did happen and when and where. She then asked me to identify myself with the normal challenge stuff. The she read a script which meant that her work was done and it's going to Prep. For Decision. I told EBenefits was still at Gathering which I checked before I left today for the VA. She said she has changed it. Also, my Hardship was in my file and she said she pulled it out and made it the top sheet the next person would see. Suprising at the helpfulness and knowledge of this person. I checked EBenefits and it alos had changed to confirm this conversation. I confirmed the date of claim which was 1 year old as of 5/17/12. I checked how this RO fairs against others in its area. It by far is the has the smallest claims. It's The Fargo, ND RO. The woman told me that the claim should be granted soon, but of course she can not but a date or timeframe on that. Which I understand it's out of her hands.

Any insight to the next stages, or what you see in this situation, or experiences with something like this. Feel free to comment,

Just means your still in a holding pattern, perhaps only a few months longer.

Thank you, Carlie. I think since I turned in the Hardship it will be a month or 2. The woman I talked to said she was walking my claim over when we hang up. I'm still a bit surprised at the support she gave.

  • 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.

    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
