Texas Veterans Commision?

Question

I have a buddy that is head of security for Cheaters that goes to Church with a lady from the Texas Veterans Commission. I guess that he relayed my plight to his friend and she actually called me. i did miss the call but am wondering what help could they provide for a veterna that was denied service connection for his injury. Yes (you know who) i did attempt to call them back but they were closed. has anyone ever heard of this entity helping with denied claims?

Dearman, from what I have heard the TVC is really good in helping Texas Vets with their claims and other Veteran related items such as employment...I wish now that I had used them as my POA instead of DAV..The DAV has done nothing to help my claims, the claims were approved because of what I learned hear on hadit and applied to the process..All the DAV has done was send a letter when my 70% PTSD was approved and ask me for money.........TVC has a web site that is pretty good.Don't know the URL, just search Texas Vets and it will pop up........Hopefully they can help you out..It is a long hard process and the RO (especially WACO) will try to do anything they can to be able to deny your claim.....................................Grid

I'm currently represented by the DAV and they have not done anything either. I use the clinic in fw. I may call the tvc then. I'm still waiting on my initial claim after 20 months.

I am glad to read these comments> I think the other site has been obsessive in belittling TVC is because TVC had the temerity to advise them on ways they could help the vet more...

Any help is good help. And for flaws that may exist here, Hadit.com is still the best site for a vet.

One of the others has an axe to grind and is pretty lazy. The other seems dominated by active and retired VA ROs that bring out the knives if any participant question their judgement and the VBA as an adversary.

The most open forum for the vet that exists is this one

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
