Question

I received a strange letter today from the RO. It said they had received my applicationf or benefits. Funny thingis I have not filed a claim in over a year.

I called the 800 number and the person told me the VA did it for me?

Is this just a ploy to keep on stalling or do you think the VA actually did file a claim on my behalf, Perhaps and informal claim?

Oh No!!!

It could be that another vets claim is filed in your C-File folder. That happened to me. When I got my second C-File copy there were a lot of documents in my file that belonged to another vet and I mailed them to the vets address that was on the documents and never heard a thing.

jstacy,

Do you live close enough to visit your R.O? If you do, I would certainly want to see in person the new claim, as I have had the counselors on the telephone tell me anything to shut me up and to get me off the phone.

I am not sure that they would file another claim for you.

I wouldn't trust them. I have been around the block and back.

Just a thought,

Josephine

I think I just figured it out, last week an IRIS response said they were going to ask the VAMC for another opinion on My cervical Radiculpathy. ALso a CUE claim I filed last year for the wrong decision based on information not considered int he service record and the Erroneous decision made in 1998. The decision stated the SMR Was negative for Complaints, treatment or diagnosis of H/A or Hypertension. However, The C@P examiner went right to the page it was listed on. This soap opera continues. I feel like I need to buy a box of tide or something. Should not be much longer. 3 years is enough.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting 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
