Question

Well I’m not surprised. I just received in the mail today a notice from the VA stating that I needed to submit VA form 21-0781 by 30 days from the date on the notice. I received it on 12/22 and it has to be in by 12/23. This does not surprise me at all. I see that they are still doing what they can to screw the veteran. Sorry for my rant but this has me rather angry. I submitted them unsigned via the blue button and also I faxed a signed copy to my rep in hopes that he can get it turned in on time and that I will be covered.

Diver: Very Strange, I've never experienced a mail delivery problem with the VA over the past 6 yrs, trust you saved the VA Envelope. Is the 21-0781 available @ E Benny? If so, scan a signed copy as an attachment just to CYA.

I don't recall ever reading anything regarding the VA using the same policy as the IRS regarding "Date Mailed" as the official date of receipt. Another CYA, mail it today US Mail Cert Return Receipt. The ??$10.00 might be a wise investment at this point, or not. Relying on your VSO-Rep is questionable, in my opinion. Unless you live an out of the question distance from the VARO, is a drive and personal hand delivery to the VA Front Desk and getting an actual Delivery Receipt out of the question???? The VA will even make a copy of your paper work with the Receipt Date Stamp on it. That would completely eliminate your current problem, right.

Merry Christmas

Sorry to hear that, Diver.

I had a Decision Notice mailed to my old address months after submitting address change; good thing my forwarder caught it since there's no follow-up.

Can you read a postmark date on their envelope?

The postmark date is on the 2nd of December. So it is possible that the US postal service lost it. At this point I hope everything that I have done will work. I have no ability to hand deliver one and I don't have a lot of faith inmy rep. I was able to supply all of the dates of my mud exams that have me diagnosed with PTSD and all so severe depression so if all else falls through I have the depression secondary to pain that will be rated.

I went through a similar issue with the VA. I spoke with the VARO manager and he explained they have to accept the date you mail it. Send it Certified mail and you will be covered.

Sorry to hear of your issues with the VA bud. It never surprises me what crap the VA can put us thru. God Bless and hope you have a good Christmas.

Send an email to the director of the RO. Express your anger and disappointment with them, tactfully.

  • 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.
