Problem With Form 9


Howdy all Ya'll,

I have a predicament. I am trying to fill out a notice of disagreement and the VA has never sent me any statements of case on my claims. While I have been homeless and the VA says that they sent the mail but was returned as undeliverable.

So how do I fill out the form 9 when it comes to box 9. Should I just check item A since I have not been afforded the opportunity to read the SOC or the supplemenetal SOC's.

Another question: If the time has elapsed for responding due to not knowing what and when the VA decided to deny my claims can I ask them to be reopened due to the fact that I was homeless?

Do you have a vet rep?

I thinK it would be impossible to raise a good argument to a denial on a i-9 ,without going over the SOC and SSOC very carefully.

How did you get the I-9 form?

A vet rep could possibly get the VA to FAX the SOC and SSOC to him/her, and help you prepare the formal appeal.

"If the time has elapsed for responding due to not knowing what and when the VA decided to deny my claims can I ask them to be reopened due to the fact that I was homeless?"

Th VA has extended time limits in the past for "good cause". But It sure doesn't happen too often.

I posted info here a few weeks ago on that, available under a hadit search.

You can re-open the claim, if the appeal period is over, with New and Material Evidence.

I just had the Am Leg refuse to represent me saying that they did not have enough personnel or time. They also said that their volunteers could not help either.

I am looking for one now.

But I have to be able to know what is going on myself instead of relying on a vet rep to do things and then they don't follow through or things get lost between the cracks.

For example, the Am Legion didn't check that my address change had gone into effect, even though I changed it over the toll free number twice and they did three times (they said) and still I missed a QTC exam. The letter was sent to my daughters old address in another state.

When I go to the VARO they won't even talk with me without a certified POA now.

      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.
