In your situation at this time, that you've posted -

NO - I would not get a congress critter involved.

It will not help you jump ahead of the other hardship

case's nor will it speed up your claim action.

I highly doubt your congress critter themselves ever looks at anything

you've sent - they have underlings for this.

It is also very possible that going this route can actually - slow down

the processing of your claim issues.

The congressional liaison will send a letter to VA.

Someone at VA will pull your file from where it is.

They will look it over and respond to the liaison that

everything is in order and they are sorry for the delay

but advise they are working diligently on your behalf.

Then your file will go back - where in line - who knows.

Depending on what part of the country you live, such as East Coast Vets, have better Congress/ Senate people that truly care about their vets.They can make a difference sometimes. Especially since you are already HOMELESS. I'm glad to see that you have at least a roof over your head.The process is slow, but I'm sure the people who helped you with housing will also help with any other needs you may have. Just don't lose your faith,The system creates alot of negativity, just don't be one of it's victims. Good luck!Mike

  • 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.
