Question

How long on average is an appeal with the Vso.  I know Bronco said his was with his Vso for 18 months.  I believe that to be way to long.

Ok, I have another question about this process.  On my hubbys appeal,. On ebenefits it says it is with Vso.  Does that mean your local Vso, the one he went to to file the appeal?  Appeal was originally filed on 11-12.  It has a docket number.  We sent in labs after it was docketed as advised by local Vso so it would not get lost.   It is showing with Vso on ebenefits.  Does the local Vso send it to someone at D.C. Vso office?

The BVA chairmans report give the appeal times.  We can not tell you how long it will take your VSO to prepare the brief.  

If you post your docket number, someone may know how long until your BVA happens.  If it has a 2012 docket number, then you are coming on about 5 years which is about right.  If you have a docket number, it should have already been through your VSO filing a brief.

Doc number is10-39-312.  If anyone can guess when it should be thru?   We have another issue to.  They did re exams on his cads.  He is 60 percent for that,but temporary.  Today on ebenefits it shows completed as of 9-16-2016.   When I go to historical claims it says authorization review.  And view appeal status.  When you click on view appeal status, we get nothing.  Called ebenefits but they said it wold not show anything.  Then why leave where you can click on it.    I looked back at other time that it showed authorization review it was a denial of the appeal which we have in now for increase in diabetes  an ck sec to diabetes... is it possible for them to take that 60percent away.  He went to the exams that was done by Lockheed Martin.  Lol. It did say ebenefits no doc need from us.  But then it also said they did not receive anything from others.   The only way we even new about this claim was on ebenefits no letter was sent.  Then a call from Lockheed Martin for the appt.. we never got a thing from va asking us for any thing.  Any advic on what to expect.?

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
      https://www.hadit.com/100-percent-total-and-permanent-service-connected-disability-additional-benefits/

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here


      Dental treatment for 100% disabled veteran benefits.


      Educational Assistance for Dependents: (under chapter 35) Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Civilian health and medical program for dependents/survivors (CHAMPVA). Must be rated a 100% disabled veteran by the VA.


      Specially Adapted Homes


      Veterans Mortgage Life Insurance: Decreasing term mortgage insurance up to $90,000 for veterans who have received a Specially Adaptive Housing grant and have an existing mortgage.


      Waiver of cost of Service Disabled life Insurance: and additional $20,000 of life insurance at cost to veteran. Veteran must have applied for insurance within two years of initial disability rating or within two years of a new disability rating. An increase in a disability rating does not qualify as a new disability.


      Commissary and Exchange privileges for veteran and dependents: The veteran must request a letter from the VA specifying veteran is in receipt of 100% disability, and then applies for a military ID card at the nearest ID card issuing facility.


      Emergency treatment in non-VA facilities: if VA facilities are not available.


      Annual Eye exams and prescribed eye wear
