  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Changed To Prep For Decision:

Question

I checked Ebenefits and it just changed to Prep for Decision. I know it can still be kicked back to gather more info but do not think I have any more info to give.

The estimated completion date was 11/2015 to 5/2016 before and after update it changed to 05/2015 to 11/2015.

A little time-frame on my claim so far.

First Claim:

Entered December 2014

First C & P: 4/06/2015

Prep for Decision: 4/13/2015

When it changes I will update the above for the good or bad. It all depends on how my C & P went.

My claim has been at pending decision approval, i had C&P's in March 2015.. strange thing.. is i just noticed new CnP's scheduled for May 2015.. my guess is that my claim is going back 3 spaces landing on chance, chance that VA will have another C n P shot to shoot down any positive comments on my prior one.... UGH... i swear VA has more games than milt and Bradley... So frustrated with this almost like they plan this, they know i am a single father and at the time they schedule the Exam is the time My child is waiting for me to pick him up.. and if i schedule.... Go to....j... don't past go,, don't collect any possible awards.

Today it moved to Prep for Notification.

First Claim:

Entered December 2014

First C & P: 4/06/2015

Prep for Decision: 4/13/2015

Prep for Notification: 4/15/2015

This does not bode well that it moved so fast. I am near breaking point and this month may be more then I can handle.

I have 11 - New,Reopen, and increased contentions

  • Submitted: 02/08/2015 (Compensation)
  • Ebenes says it's prep for notification (and i have a C&P scheduled next month..wtheck???)
  • Estimated Completion: 06/20/2015 - 11/09/2015 (per ebenes)
  • And i have my NOD to a DRO hearing this 21st of April 2015 for a denied claims.(this is separate for some reason)

A couple days ago my Congressman's office told me 2 years, so it's moving light speed, I always remember someone here on the forums commented that the faster the claim the faster the denial. I wish everyone the best with there situation.

Also the last or what i thought was the last C&P was done March 23, 2015

Godspeed.

There's a big push on to get the claims backlog for FY 2015 down so that's the reason for speed-up so you are probably going to be Ok at this point? My claim is going on a year under the FDC Program with 22 Contentions but I provided 13 DBQ's and exams to go aling with it at forst? I sent in my informal claim in about 1.5 years ago so it has not been too fast for me yet. Originally ny claim timeline went from 15 to the 37 months and then back diwn to 13 months. A VBA Rep told me not to get too attached to what "ebenefits uis saying...

    • Everything Veterans Affairs does with your service connected disability compensation claim, is governed by law. You may want to bookmark this page as a reference as you proceed with your claim.

      It can be a bit daunting. Just remember the U.S.C. is the law, the C.F.R. is how they interpret the law and last but certainly not least is the V.A. adjudication manuals that is how they apply the law. The section of the law that covers the veterans benefits is Title 38 in the U.S.C. in the C.F.R. is usually written 38 C.F.R. or something similar.

      It's helpful to understand how statutes, regulations, and VA directives such as the VA’s Adjudication Procedures Manual, the M21-1MR (Manual M21-1MR.) are related. Of these three sources of law, the statute, written by Congress, is the highest form. The statute that governs veterans’ benefits is found in Title 38 of the United States Code (U.S.C.). The VA writes regulations to carry out the laws written by Congress; these are found in Title 38 of the Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.). The VA’s internal instructions for adjudicating claims are contained in the Manual M21-1MR. VA regulations may not conflict with any statute; the manual’s provisions may not conflict with either statute or regulations. If they do, the Court has the power to invalidate them.

    • I was unable to find a reply box to your post.

      We have a full Agent Orange forum here.

      Many veterans (and even their survivors) have succeeded in getting a disability, not on the presumptive list, service connected due to their proven exposure to AO.

      Also Secretary Wilkie is considering a few new presumptives, but we have no idea if  he will even add any to the list.

      I wrote to him making a strong argument, as  to the potential for HBP to be added, as well as ischemic stroke and have prepared a personal claim based on the same report a veteran used at the BVA, who also had a strong IMO/IME, and the BVA recently granted his HBP as due to his exposure to AO in Vietnam.

      Most veterans with HBP were deemed as having "essential" - a medical term for no know cause- now we have a cause in Vietnam veterans---AO caused it.

       

      The report is here:

      https://www.nap.edu/read/25137/chapter/2

      On page 8 they found there is "Sufficient" evidence that AO caused HBP in Vietnam veterans.

      The BVA case and this report is also searchable in our AO forum.

    • I just received a deposit to my checking account. The description says VALG TREAS 310 TYPE: XXVA.
      I'm not sure who to ask about this deposit. I am concerned because I was not notified I would be receiving it.
      I retired from the Marines in 1997 with 10% disability. I've been receiving a separate disability payment from my regular retirement pay. This deposit is completely unexpected. thank you for any insight.
