Question

Hello all I have had a very difficult time as many of you have had with my claim...I filed back in May of this year and I have taken all of my c and p exams, all of which I hvae copies and we're favorable. Per an email I received from the VA, they haven't received my exams yet.I called 1800 to see if could fax them in to only be told I shouldn't have a copy of them yet.My exams were done Aug 19/20 2014. I contacted my congressmans office and they were told that the exam had been received and reviewed.I got an email from VA today stating that my claim is under review pending review of exams. I know my claim hasn't been in long but it has been 4 months since my C and P, did I waste time with my representative, are there any other options available to get an answe?? I know typical answer is wait.I just lost as to should I upload my copy of exam

USAF:Claim filed in 05/2014, had your C&P's already and you've contacted your Congressman? I'm confused by your SC listing as 80%, what rating do you think your going to get when this "NEW??" claim gets decided? If your @ 80% SC, a 30% would get you to 90, what do you think your New issues will be rated at?

Was you 05/14 New claim an FDC? I got a rting this past 10/14 from an FDC filed in May so yours should be close. What prompted you to contact your Congressman, seems unusual after only a few months?

It's my personal opinion that anyone at anytime is entitled to contact his/her Congressional Representative for any reason. We elected them for that purpose, and veterans, in particular, have earned that right without feeling compelled to explain themselves.

THanks GASTONE, for replying the claims that are in all deal with upper respiratory issues.My main purpose for filing isnt the money's, it's to get the contentions listed and sc for future treatment.As far as contacting the Congressmen this was advice by two VSO org, after they also kept getting conflicting info concerning the exam info,as well as being told I needed to go to c n p exam back on Aug 19/20 which I had already done.Just to add to my first post, the Congressional liason agreed that if I went to C and P back n Aug and know one was actively seeking my files, this was the info needed to help better the system.I think vets should inform those n congress, so that they will be informed of our issues. Thanks for commenting as well as for your service

Thanks lotaspotz for reading and replying.

We contacted Senator McConnell who had someone in his office contact BVA. We got a letter from BVA saying they review appeals according to Docket No. He was no help at all.

  • 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.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.

     

    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.
