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?

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
