My Next Move



Hello everyone I am new to this website am glad I found it ! VA denied my vertigo/dizziness in Dec 2011 because they said there was no military evidence link to my illness even though I sent them copies of my military medical records stating my vertigo/dizziness with multiple dates 1996, 2001, 2005, and 2006. One from my civilian doc in 2009 when I retired. In 2013, I started seeing the VA with my illness . October 2013 I filed again and received a denial again May 2014 and did not bother to reopen it because they refer back to the Dec 2011 denied decision. Is NOD will be my next appropriate move? Thank you all!

maybe post a copy of both denial letters here so we can see why they denied. Yes file a NOD. they will sooner or later acknowledge your Nod, and ask if you want a DRO review. Tell them you want a traditional appeal and to send you a SOC. Once u get the SOC, you can submit new evidence to rebutt thier denial . (which you will have gotten in the form of an IMO from a civilian doc while waiting on the SOC.

Requesting a DRO review just gives them abt a year to sit on your claim, and deny it again, . let them know your serious, and arent afraid to go before the judge. Asking for appelate review will let them know you are done farting with them.
