LR: Unless something has drastically changed recently, calling the VA Regarding Comp Claims has always been an exercise in futility. Hope you didn't opt to wait on hold for an extended period. A few years back, I chose the call back option. The young guy called right on the button at the exact time specidifed. He was very caring and actualy seemed interested in helping me. We discussed my DRO Hearing concerns, but he couldn't give me any more info regarding a hearing date than I already had.

I actually got a little more info by stopping in at my VSO's office at the VARO. His computer allowed him more access than the VSR at the Regional Hospitalbut not much more. Couldn't pin down Hearing date, only new info was "Diary Dates" had passed. WTF that meant never really clear. I think it just meant somebody at the VA initials your C-file to indicate they looked at it. Couldn't have meant too much, 06/14 Hearing didn't happen for over 4 yrs.

CALLING VA is not the only "exercise in futility". Writing them is the same. So is talking to your VSO, or visiting the Regional Office.

In fact, just about everything at VA is an exercise in futility...ebenefits is usually wrong, they dont want you to call, write, or contact your VARO in person. IRIS is no better, and neither is contacting your congress critter. The service at VA is at a level on par with the "service" the jews got in Nazi Germany.

There is still one valid use for the Prize Redemption Hotline. If you don't have an eBennies account, you can call them up to ask what progress has occurred on your claim. Hell, they read it off eBennies word for word anyway. Really. Try it. Pull it up on your computer and then ask Petunia what's up. It will be verbatim. They no longer have access to VACOLS, PIES or CAPRI. Back to the stone age. Well, that's good. It means your Fully Developed Claim is traveling so fast they can't keep track of where it is at any given moment. Or not. The 800 number is for the wildly optimistic among us.

The only reason the Va moves fast is if they think they can reduce a rating. It will likely be the fastest claim actions you will ever recieve hands down.

  • 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:

    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
