You have to formally rescind your POA in writing in a signed statement that you no longer want the ___ to represent you- and send a copy to the VARO at the same time you send this to your vet rep.

It takes time to get on the VA computers -maybe a few days- and then you can acquire a different POA.

Almost forgot- do this by formal signed letter- emails or FAxes are not acceptable as your signature is required to rescind a POA.

He wants to Rescind-

The 21-22 is used by an accredited service office or vet rep or Organization

the 21-22 (a) is used when a vet appoints another individual to represent them- not a vet rep, or org-

He can't used the 21-22 to rescind

Thanks guys for your response.

One more question....can you request a copy of (I think it's called the blue sheet) from your SO?

My husband got an increase for sc condition in May and 0% (1151 claim) for his toe in August, and has heard nothing from his SO. Shouldn't he at least acknowledge whether the increase is ageeable or the o% is acceptable? My husband e-mailed the guy a while back but has not heard anything from him. Of course, we do realize he is busy helping others as well, but at I'll get back to you or something...

You may be referring to the Code Sheet, the last page of a Rating Decision.The Code Sheet is provided to the Service Organization, but not the claimant, where there is a POA in force. The Code Sheet has the actual diagnostic codes, percentages and effective dates and is used to input the award onto VA's computer. Your husband should have received the Rating Decision; SOs are copied. Rating Decisions are printed on blue paper. If he wants to appeal the 0% he can file an NOD on his own.

Thanks guys for your response.

Actually you need to make sure your new POA will take it on. Many SO's will not take a Veterans Claim from another SO.

All you have to do is fill out a new VA Form 21-22 to the new Service Organization. POAs are clipped into the right-hand flap of the claims folder with the current one on top and the old ones Xd out. My experience is that it can take weeks to months for a POA to be input into the master record, depending on the RO.

How do you change your POA from one organization to another? How long does it usually take for the change to go into effect?

thanks,

If your claim is on appeal with a certain VSO most other VSO's won't take the claim in mid stream. I tried getting my POA changed from the DAV to the VFW( the VFW guy was highly recommended) but the VFW would not take the claim because it was in the appeals process. This is the reality regardless of what might be legal. That was my experience and I checked around because I was disgusted with my DAV SO.

    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.
