Question

My appeal had been advanced on

the docket since 2013. I received

the BVA favorable  decision for two

of four conditions in August 2016

with an EED of 2009. The tdiu and

migraines were remanded for

further development.

After contacting Under Secretary  Bob in Oct 2016 I received an e-mail from the Office of Case Management stating they were assisting with my inquiry and would receive a SSOC discussing my 2009 appeal.

I got a SSOC 5-7days mentioning tdiu and migraines were

denied.

I have yet to receive any

retro payments. Every time I call the

BVA status I get the same this

same update "it's with the Judge

and it's under review."

Does anyone have an updated # for the Office of Case Management. These two #'s are no longer in service. 202-273-7453, 202 273-5674. I got this from Hadit forum.

You might have to send them a copy of the VA  Fast Letter 10-02 in this link and ask them for the retro :

But before you do that can you give us the BVA Docket number?

Those are the only numbers I could find for Case Management.

If your Retro's over, I think $25K or so, needs additional authorization from Rating Dept MFIC.

Who Rep'd your BVA Award, VSO or VA Lawyer. Have you filed papers with the CAVC?

The old "Checks in the Mail" deal regarding your Retro. The Direct Deposit will hit, when it it's.

Is your Direct Deposit account set up to Txt & E-mail you, regarding all financial transactions in real-time?

How about a BVA Docket Number, always good to read a somewhat successful BVA Decision, as well as the Denial portion.

Yo Vet90, am I reading this right, Appeal from 09 NOD, DRO (Anything) or BVA Hearing requested DATE ??/??/09 or 10?

What kind of "Advanced on the Docket since 2013" did you receive? When was your actual BVA Hearing and what kind, Video, Travel Board or DC? Early or mid 2015?

No BVA Decision until 08/2016, not quite what one would consider as any type of BVA Docket Advancement to the head of the line.

Thanks for the quick responses. I wish VBA would be just as quick. I'm going to attempt answering all the questions asked of me:;

My docket NO. 09-15179- A

The most recent video conference hearing: April 2016 before judge Marti Hyland

Advanced on docket due to homelessness.

Yes, account is setup to receive deposit alerts.

Represented at hearings by American Legion VSO.

Should I wait until after you've had a chance to read my decision before sending the VA Fast Letter 10-02?

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
