D*** The Va, Wth Is Going On?

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 submitted an IRIS a few weeks ago, and as most of you know my claim has been in the Prep for Decision phase since 12/22/14. Now a month later my damn claim went to Gathering of Evidence yesterday, WTH!!! Now on my Ebennies claim status page it looks like the RO is requesting C&P exams or evidence from VA med Facility, and they have until Mar 15. I am so freaking frustrated, my last 2 FDC claims have been completed in less than 4 months each, and even though a few conditions were denied, atleast the process was smooth. How can we ever get better or relieve stress if the dang VA keeps jerking us in circles like a Merry Go Round. Sorry to ramble guys, just tired of the same crap over and over again. I am grateful that I am 100%, but I want every Ache, Pain and Medical Condition listed in my VA Record in case anything every happens to me, that all.

Sorry for your troubles and I hope it gets resolved quickly for you...what does this mean exactly below:

"RO is requesting C&P exams or evidence from VA med Facility"...I have the same ebennifits annoucement but am not sure if it's just an exam or they are asking for my VA generated records specifically?

Do you know....?

Just a guess but I suspect your claim was reviewed and now they are CTA mode. Don't get discouraged and don't give up. Maybe a letter to Alice would be in order.

I think the "Alice" Pete is referring to is Allison Hickey. She is the smart sister in Peggy's family.

You can contact her at: Allison.Hickey@va.gov

A lot of vets on Hadit have been contacting her for claims problems and receiving timely responses.

Good luck.

  • 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.

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

    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
