Granted. Remanded, Retro? Oh my!


SecurityForces03

Question

All I can do is laugh at this point. I suppose I am happy with the positive part, but the second half is being remanded to AMC.

The remanded appeal has been there since December 2015 (AMC), does anyone have any contact info for AMC? All I can find is a fax number. 

I am trying to find out where my retro pay is, new percentage change, and what's going on with the other half of my appeal.

Thanks all,

SF03

Sorry SF03.  I am at the AMC as well, and as far as I can tell, they don't give status reports.

Even my lawyer can't seem to penetrate their cover.  (beware the man behind curtain ;)

Mine has been their since 10/5/15 with no end in sight.

The Training letter that regards BVA partial grants is here somewhere.

If the claim goes on too much longer (I assume the BVA made an award) you can copy off the training letter and send it to them.

Then again the VA is slow as molasses... and in my opinion,  the AMC is comparable to the black hole. I had a fax # for them once, then I heard they put their fax machine into a closet.

Ahh that stinks. I was granted half of my appeal while the other half went back to AMC. I'm currently 70 SC'd and with the new "win" I am suppose to be 80%. I was notified in December 2015. At this point, no retro pay and no percentage change yet. Do I just keep waiting?

Secondly, the part then went to remand is for a date of service connection change. Haven't heard or seen any movement at all on this part. Waiting game...

sorry, it is a Fast Letter not a TL and here it is with this thread:

http://community.hadit.com/topic/64697-bva-and-retro-pay/#comment-393077

If 120 days have passed ( I think they have)  you could whip this out to them ( maybe by Fax)

Lol, the closet!? I actually believe it!

Yes, the BVA awarded me a partial win, which should change my sc'd from 70% to 80%. It's been about 5 months since my approval letter.

Thanks so much Berta. Do you recommend I send it to the VA or to AMC? If either, what's a good fax/snail mail, email, or ebenefits contact?

Thanks!!

  • 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
