LiL: Your at 40%, what should your rating, in your opinion be? Did you go the DRO Review or Hearing route? What, if anything, took place between 1/18/11 and your SOC 2/6/13? The SSOC 1/22/14, was this a result of a VARO review by a Sr Rater or DRO in response to "New & Material Evidence" recently submitted that wasn't available previously? When did ou receive the VARO 90 day cut off letter in regards to filing "New & Material Evidence" for your appeal, didn't see it on your time line.

My NODs (2) 2010 & 2012 were both awarded at a DRO Hearing this past 06/14. Never had any BVA experience and glad of it. However, I have spent considerable time reviewing BVA Awards and Denials. Very large number of Remands back to VARO. 2013 & 2014 BVA Decisions appear to be largely comprised of appeals that have been pending for 4+ years.

I was 1 of those Vets that waited till the 11th hour of the 1 yr appeal period. My procrastination and slow start on getting involved handling everything myself, added at leat 11/2 yrs to my DRO wait time. Lucky for me that the DRO agreed to resolve both NODs during the scheduled 2010 NOD Hearing. My 2012 NOD was the Big Retro IU Award. I got in front of a DRO in about 41/2 yrs. Your with a VLJ and hopefully won't end up with a Remand or Denial. Good Luck

    The Veterans Crisis Line can help even if you’re not enrolled in VA benefits or health care.

  • 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.




    • 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.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
