Hi Berta -an anyone else who has time-and patience to help.

I filed his (My Brothers)1151 Claims-I hace Senators-Congressman call for him.


We are leaving to go see him, He has lusid monents,but I think that the cancer is going to his brain.

Problem is -he got his Form 9.---- He signed it,but my Question is this. Should I go ahead and file it? The Doctors hold NO hope that he will live more then maybe 2 months.

If the answer is yes,what box should if check off?

He is on VA Pension-A&A. And S.S.D- His wife is also disabled an trying to care for him. He get $550.00 extra from Pension & A&A .QUESTION?

Is there anything else that iI can File to get any other Help for him?

He gets 20% SC-10% hearing &10% Tennits. But NO Money for this!

Berta,He is the one that they refused to allow to re-enlist ,after 9 years in service,because of his hearing loss.But they only give him 0%!

You had said something about Cue? Is it too late.

I am so sorry to hear how ill he is.

The BVA appeal should be sent in-

However- his wife will have to prove that a service connected disability caused or contributed to his death if he should die-

You need a service officer or vet rep to prepare a Motion for advancement on the BVA docket.ASAP.

In any event only service connected disabilities-if they are found to contribute to death, can service connect a death.

Is it the Section 1151 claim that is at the BVA? in the event of his death -his wife can re-open it-

if negligence or malpractice on VA's part causes or contributes to this veteran's death the wife can re-open his Sec 1151 claim-but it is still his claim-he is still alive-

but she will need proof of VA malpractice and proof that it caused his death-if he dies.

She can or he can also file a FTCA claim-

have they done that?

I dont know how it works if the vet files FTCA and then dies- I think the widow files a new one-not sure there-General Counsel can tell you -I posted their number here yesterday or Wednesday.

I have posted the SF 95 for a FTCA claim here many times- and it is at the VA web site too-

I even stated how the first part should be filled out-

You should consider getting an IMO- this has become the best advice I can give on Section 1151 malpractice-the only good advice I can give ---

because you get a doctor's word- in my case I am not a doc so they strung it all out---

but my FTCA/1151 succeeded because the evidence was in the med recs and I forced them to read it.

I had to become a "cardiologist" to first discover if they malpracticed-and then how they did it-

and then to show them how they killed Rod-

dont do that-A good IMO saves months of medical studies.

Filing FTCA is a good bet too because VA lawyers at GC and district VA attorneys know how to read.

I had no problems whatsoever when my FTCA went to the real deal- the Docs and Lawyers at VA Central in Wash, DC.

FTCA must be filed within 2 years of day the veteran or the spouse (if the vet dies) learned of the malpractice-

IMOs' I recommend Dr. Bash:


Last week when we taked he was still in California- but he will return your email-

he is on a hard working brief vacation

I must add this is HIS claim, and he is not dead yet -I am uncomfortable being asked these questions but if he does die-it is his widow's claim-to re-open-if she feels there was malpractice.

Make sure she knows his wishes for Organ Harvest-those people call soon when one dies so this decision should be made with him now-

you have no idea how wonderful it is that Rod donated his eyes, skin and bones to others-

it can help with the grief a lot-

Autopsy will be required for Organ donors and this autopsy too could help your mom with any 1151 or FTCA claim she files.

  • 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
