I filed a request with St. Pete. On July 7th 2013, it is showing as pending claim in e Bennies. Seems like a long wait.

Put in a request on Wednesday in person at the Houston VARO. Will let you know when it comes in. They are saying about 9 months.

I assume this means that you can't walk in to Houston VARO an request and stand there and wait for a copy???

It is a 200 mile drive, but I was thinking of making the trip, hoping to pick up a copy of the C file.

A buddy of mine just got his. It was requested over 2 years ago.

Now that really sucks.

Put in mailed request as a FOIA -Freedom of Information Act-request for hubby's c-file 4 weeks ago. No response yet. I plan to send them a letter every month reminding them by law they only have 20 working days to fulfill a FOIA request.

In the meantime, I was able to access SOME medical information using My Health E Vet website with a Premium account. The Blue Button feature let me download some data going back about 15 years. It shows past doctor appointments, prescriptions, vitals & results of blood tests.

Also, I was able to go in person ( you can just as easily mail a request, the mailing address is found on the VA website) to the VAMC where he has had a lot of treatment. I went to their "Release of Information office". He filled out a form & they said they can get him a copy of EVERYTHING that particular VAMC has done. They said expect it to take 20 days. FYI -ANY FOIA request must be fulfilled in 20 business days. We need to start suing VARO 's that are not complying with the law!

    • Post in New BVA Grants
      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
