Remanded Appeal back at BVA!?


SecurityForces03

Question

Hi all,

After contacting the VA Secretary, my appeal has left AMC and is back at the board. During that week process, my DAV Representative wrote an arguement for me regarding my remand. Looked excellent.

I received an update on Friday through ebennies that my case is "Pending Hearing Request/Scheduling".

Does anyone have a clue when the next step could be and if that next step is "With Veterans Law Judge?". My appeal has a docket date of 2012.

Thanks All!

Looks good!

Back from the AMC is always good.  That status is usually a "black hole", taking upwards of 9 months to navigate.  So, good for you on that count.

"With VLJ" is a status usually reserved for that point in the process where a decision to approve, remand, or deny is made.  That status most likely won't be accomplished until after you have your hearing.

Once "With VLJ", the case can still be sent to the AMC for processing, so, I caution you not to get too excited at this point.  The AMC is like a special RO specifically for the BVA, and they, like any RO, can take it's sweet time administrating your claim.

In addition, you can get many updates while "With VLJ".  I seen timelines that included up to 10 "With VLJ" status "updates".  And those are just from folks here on Hadit.com.

Having said that, the fact that the VA Secretary has shown interest in your case most likely will cause your case to be processed most expeditiously.  I sure hope that holds true for you.

Good luck to you!   And Bravo for keeping up the good fight.

As always, thank you for your thorough response. Always appreciated!

To be clear, I'm asking what should my status change to next? It's a remand so I'm guessing "the VLJ" status should be next. Is that correct? It is currently pending hearing request. My DAV rep said 30-60 days max.

I would say "hearing scheduled" as opposed to "pending hearing request", but frankly I do not know.

Hehe. That's what I figured or "With VLJ". I say that because in the description on ebenefits, it says it could have already been scheduled.

I also received a letter from the BVA that my remanded appeal will be heard "expeditiously". I love hearing that term thrown around. 

My remanded portion was only for an EDD. The arguement that I read from the DAV was outstanding. Time to wait.

    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.
