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


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?

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!


      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
