File With Bva Veterans Law Judge


jfrei

Question

Being so close to a finish line  is like your last 3 weeks on deployment and you start the count down of hours then minutes and there is never a good feeling its ever going to end. I just received this response

"Dear Mr. Frei,

Your appeal is here at the Board of Veterans' Appeals and is currently being reviewed. If you're referring to the date change on eBenefits, that is when it is assigned to different attorneys on the VLJ's staff. Review is proceeding on your appeal in an expeditious fashion since this has been Advanced on the Docket. 

It has been with the VLJ since the 5th on this month and has moved on the 7th and 14th, now everyday waiting for the date to change. Does anyone know how many times it bounces around the VLJ before a decision or an idea? I have seen 7 in past posts.

It should be soon in this case.

However, I have seen timelines where "with VLJ" had date changes in excess of 10 times.

I have seen "with VLJ" changed to "Administrative Case Management", which is a real "rat hole".

Don't get your hopes to high that it will be "the day after tomorrow", but don't worry that it won't happen.

Be patient, and stay off ebennies.  ;)

Barring a Remand, only the Wiz of OZ, really knows.

I hate to say this, E-Ben might actually have info regarding BVA Decision, before you do. If it weren't for the E-Ben Comp Letter posted 1/3/16 and the Retro Deposit mid 01/16, I wouldn't have known the RO Mystery Rater, was reviewing and Awarded a recent 07/15 Decision. No idea if BVA Decisions will appear fast or slow.

You might want to read VA Attorney, Chris Attig's post of a discussion with an actual BVA Judge, regarding the BVA process. Much more incite, than we can offer.

I hate Ebennies it's a click away and when it changes you get so anxious you can't stop checking Why did they invent the internet for phones?

Yes barring any remands.

you should take a break from ebenefit's and keep your self busy with something else  it can eat at you and cause you all kinds of headaches if you let ebnny's consume you.

My PTSD Claim was completed and I got the decision packet in the mail, I went to look on ebenfit's to see what all they mention about my claim decision  and it was still  in ''gathering evidence''

as for as I know there still gathering evidence  but it did show my claim was completed and showed the added benefits.

I think they forget to hit that update button or something?

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
