Any Ideas What This Means?

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




I have not called VA for quite some time...it is too frustrating and their IRIS responses never make sense.

Their last response thanked me for my suggestions....????? that was it , no status.....

Many past 800 # and IRIS responses denied I had filed a 1151 claim in 2012 but my CUE was with a specialist.

The 800 man was very nice and said I had an appeal docketed at the BVA in April 2012.

Say what?

I need to contact the Ombudsman because I would be thrilled with anything at the BVA, but I have no idea ( neither did the 800 rep,) what this was for.

After quite some time going through the PC he told me I have 3 open issues

1. Section 1151 claim filed Sept 2012 still pending (good they had lost this claim last year)

2.A April 30th 2014 entry for an open issue ( No idea on that but it must it must have been the request that they CUE themselves claim which I filed on October 12 2012. ?????

3. And again the DIC claim is listed as "opened" May 11th 2014 and still pending ???????

I have gotten DIC for 20 years.

When VA awarded posthumously my husband's 100% 1151 stroke cash, they properly did Not deduct it from the 100% P & T PTSD accrued cash they paid me years ago nor from the AO SC IHD comp retro.

Is it possible that they are trying to award me for 1151 DIC on top of the direct SC DIC?

100% SC for one SC disability plus 100% 1151 for another disability equals both payments being made to the veteran.,and I posted those regs here long ago

but I have never heard of this regarding any widow's situation on 2 separate DIC awards that would involve two DIC payments a month.Anyone else ever hear of that?

The Sec never responded to my email yet.

I do feel relieved after being on the phone for quite some time with VA today to learn that they definitely have the Sept 2012 1151 claim and realized it was not, as IRIS told me a few months ago, a NOD...and not a 1151 claim.

Berta - I sure don't think so - but it's VA - we never know - heck - they don't know.

That was a perfect answer Carlie!

I checked my 2009 award and it said DIC for direct Sced death was awarded for AO DMII contributing to death but that the original DIC amount would not change..

I think my AO IHD death award said something like that too.

So that new DIC stuff ,that has popped up since early this year,doesn't make sense at all,and the CUE I have superceded the 2012 1151 issues and could cover it..maybe...and make it moot but something told me to file that claim anyhow.

And nothing back from the BVA ombudsman yet.

I should have baked a cake instead of calling the VA this AM although they did call me back in about 35 minutes.

. That would have made more sense!

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

    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
