No that isn't what we all want.

If you are keeping up with the news about VA from the IG and other credible sources like Dan Krauses' site, you will learn that the VA is  manipulating the queue of claims for their benefit.

Many of us have known that for years ( they pick and choose) but there is finally proof coming out on it.

All we want is to have our claims judged in a timely manner, and handled in  the same order they receive them.

I know someone who has waited for over ten years for an award. The VA (in my opinion), has bent over backwards in trying to help him prove his case.

Countless BVA remands and CAVC remands. Yet he still fails to give them the evidence they want.(because that evidence in my opinion Never existed)

So that type of situation takes VA 's time from other handling claims from other claimants who have often been proactive and gotten the evidence they needed themselves.

I think if a veteran is denied for lack of evidence/or no evidence to prove their claim & denied and the VA Sends a letter explaining this  & what they need from the veteran   then the VA just puts that claim on the back burner and wait for the Veteran to send in his evidence with his timely  NOD ...if he don't then he won't win his claim   it takes away from other veterans who do have their evidence    when they do this remand junk back & forth.

Actually when you file a claim the VA sends you a letter  saying what all you need to send them to prove your claim...do this carefully and make sure you send in what they ask and any other records that would be favorable to your claim  mainly medical records.

  go over all the paper work you send the VA make sure everything is complete  with your claims # and sign all papers & make copies for you) keep in safe place &  always get a sign return receipt when using snail mail...to me this is better than filing online  or do both.

if you get anymore evidence in after you file your claim send that in ASAP so they have that too!

Always be honest with the VA & you can back up what you say.

if you think that something is not right in your VA Myhealthvet Notes  let the VA know this...some times in a PTSD Claim the MH  Dr's and LCSW will say things that are untrue as to what you did in the military or where you where!

example....

They may say ''this is a 26 year old gulf war veteran boots on ground combat vet, if you where that's ok and its Correct, but if you were not then you need to actually say this in your lay statement in support of your claim 

I want to correct a statement  the VA--MH Dr's and social workers stated in their report from Myhealthvet Notes

They stated I was a  infantry combat veteran boots on the ground that is a misleading statement. 

if you were   say a clerk or a cook or any other dutys to keep you out of combat but you were actually in enemy tettority  then so state so,

  Do not try to hide the fact that you were NOT in combat...just simply state your case and what happen to you how you were injured or came about getting your disability while in the service.

you will come more winning your claim with the truth as opposed to trying to make them think you were in actual combat.  if you can't prove it  then don't state it.

being honest is one thing the VA looks at very closely

isnt that what we all really want. get yours before mine. so the best way to do that is to claim broke or to sick to go on when you get to the BVA then they will excuse all others and allow yours!

The VA will investigate if your Broke or Sick &if this is not true  why claim it......it sure won't speed up or even win your claim.

Yes they do (VA) make an exception and move the homeless vets in front of the claims line in special circumstances but if your not homeless or sick  that would be dishonest to claim that  just to speed up a claim.

  • 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.

  • 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
