Question For The Board. How Long Between C File Request Before A Veteran Can Request A New One


Capt.

Question

Hello All,

I have requested a new Cfile and VA has denied under FOIA rules because they sent one in 2008. The new denial letter on the request for a Cfile says they will not send one unless I am willing to pay for it and that is a real hurdle due to complexity and volume. So the question to the board is when can a Veteran request under FOIA a new Cfile if he or she has already received on, WITHOUT PAYING FOR IT???

NEVER GIVE UP . God Bless, C.C.

You can request one when you're willing to pay for it. Other than that, you can get a free updated portion from the date of the last request. If you requested a copy in 2008, you can get a free copy from 2008 to present and add it to the previous copy. Sometimes the VA will offer to allow you to come in and make a new copy free, if you do the copying. I've had this offer, once, but preferred

they do it and paid for my new copy, which was around $125, at the time.

The VA law stated that you get one FREE copy then you pay after that. You should have a copy of everything you sent in, you can get and thing done like the C&P at your VA.

Asked for anything since 2008 or ask your VSO to help you.

I had a copy of my File which my lawyer had gotten from me. We went to a BVA hearing. The judge had a copy of my C-file about three times as large as the one I had. What they have and what we have may be very different. I got a copy of what the judge had no charge. Talk about due process when you don't even know what the other side has to use against you. It is good to get a complete file since all this stuff is on paper. Paper can be shredded or burned.

    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.

    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
