    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

Remanded Appeal after Video Conference

Question

So I checked Ebenefits yesterday and the status of my appeal was changed from "Pending Dispatch"  to "Remanded Appeal". The statement in Ebenefits says "Your appeal has been sent back for further development by the Board to the Appeals Management Center or to the office that made the original decision on your case." If you have any experience/knowledge at this stage of the process, would you mind sharing?

Thanks in advance....

Yo FIZZ, what happened with the BVA Video Hearing? I never had one, how about a blow by blow run down of yours?

I see that back in 05/15, you were considering jumping ship, regarding your VSO. How'd that workout for you? What does your same/new VSO Hearing Rep have to say?

If possible, could you post redacted copies of you VA Awards/Denials and the BVA Remand? How about a time-line, also?

If you haven't yet, set your Direct Deposit Bank/CU Account to Txt/Email you immediately regarding all financial transactions. VA Retro generally hits your Bank Account about 3 - 4 weeks before the actual Award Letter arrives.

My E-Ben site listed an increase from a mid 12/15 Quality Control Review of a 07/15 Decision, 01/03/16. Retro hit mid 01/16 and Award Letter arrived mid 04/16. That's 6 for 6 Retro Deposits or Checks, hitting 3+ weeks before the Award Letters arrived, over the past 8 yrs.

Hi Gastone. The BVA Video Hearing was rather straight forward. My request for a hearing was submitted in October of 2015 and about 3 to 4 months later I received a video conference court date to appear in April. We reviewed the claim along with my VSO present and spoke of my condition. I didn't know what to expect because of some of the stories I heard, but the judge was nice and seemed to understood my point of view as it pertained to the claim. It was about a 20 minute session to freely state your claim. I would recommend one if you have a claim to appeal.

I decided not to jump ship on the VSO and stuck through it.

I did receive the BVA letter from the remand over the weekend (6/25), but the online version is not yet available for me to copy it over.

My sleep apnea claim was decided as a complete grant, and the rest were remanded for another exam... although I have to wait, I am somewhat glad since I wasn't completely denied. Since I just got the BVA letter, I am not sure where the process goes from there.

I will have to search my timelines to provide the whole process later.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
