Odd Va Info



One of the 800 # vet reps who has never steered me wrong on status of my claim-if he can see a status on the PC screen-

just told me that there was a "re-open" on August 8th of a non appeal issue I had for service connection.

And then yesterday the "re-opened" claim went into adjudication.

I had asked for Reconsideration of their CUE denial a few weeks ago and thought this was the claim he meant.

But I emailed my Congressman about the S 2694 matter and realised that ,in a letter I am preparing for him too, that I needed a status -if any- of the Senatorial Inquiry they have at the VARO on my AO SC claim.

The vet rep at 800# said it seems that is part of the re-open-but he was not sure.

A Non appeal issue -------what the heck is that?

They just have a Temp folder and the rest is all at the BVA- how can they re-open a non appeal issue without the evidence that is in the actually c file?

Any thoughts ?

Yea - they just have a dummy file at VARO - so what the heck info would the re-open come from ???

Berta and all --- we know that if it's in the hands of DVA it is sure as hell to get

muddied up, lost or destroyed. Knowing this and being able to accept it as fact

are two different things.

Glad I'm not a Hurricane Katrina citizen -- still waiting on a trailer. lol

Yesterday or Tuesday the VA received my letter to their VSM asking them to CUE themselves on their past illegal decisions on my AO claim-I attached legal support for that request.

This however could be an Administrative Review-that they called on themselves.

Checking my phone log, about ten days ago they told me this had to do with the Senate Inquery letter-

In that letter (just re-read it)- I laid it all out for Senator Craig as to what they are doing to vets at this VARO. I do not mince words and I support everything with fact.

In the ten years that passed after last being a VA claimant-

it gave me a whole different view of what goes on at ROs when a vet or widow like me has a claim.

And it gave me documentation-as a current claimant- that I didnt have for years.

I dont know what to think about the 800 # info. My letter to the Senate Committee used my personal experience for all claimants at this VARO as well as for my claim.

I just wish I knew what they mean by non appeal issue-

of well- at least I know they are doing something.

I should have become a surgeon. Seems like I have to remove heads and thumbs from rectums anyhow.

      A VA Compensation and Pension Examiners Perspective

      This person is going to judge you. It’s their job, and that is why you are there. To be adjudicated fairly. How would you like to be remembered? A scuzzy stereotypical veteran? Or a troubled one who is doing the best they can?

      Do not talk about alcohol or drug-related issues. You are not there to be assessed for those problems. You are there to be evaluated for your psychiatric functioning as today relates to your service history. If the examiner asks about alcohol or drugs, politely remind them that you are not there for those issues if you’ve ever had them, but for how impaired you are in your daily functioning. It’s best to avoid even talking about them. Got a VA horror story? I can tell you a worse one. Don’t waste your time with how badly you believe you’ve been mistreated. The examiner only has a short time to figure out how impaired you are, and they need the facts, concise sentences, and not rambling rants that lead nowhere.

    • VA Math, Confusing, Right? Calculate Your Final Rating Percentage!
      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic 

      “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service-connected and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating.

    • Post in I need some help, please
      If you are looking for help taking care of him something like a home health aide that comes in during the week and helps with what he needs help with. For this I would contact your local VA hospital and ask to speak to the Social Worker, explain your situation, ask for help and how to proceed.

      If you are looking for additional compensation in the form of Special Monthly Compensation check out this video from CCK Law I think it will give you a good idea what it is and how to go about applying for it.

      For example there is a Special Monthly Compensation Rate for TBI try reading this article from The Veterans Law Blog on SMC T It is a subscription site but it allows you to view 3 articles for free a month.

      Special Monthly Compensation (SMC)

      I hope this helps.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    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.


    • 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.


    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
