  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Iris Inquiry

Question

I know that some of us spend a good deal of time bashing the VA, but I sent an IRIS inquiry up yesterday asking about the status of an appeal that was submitted in April 2005, and whether the new claim I submitted last month would cause any problems with the appeal.

I received a reply back in less than 2 hours notifying me that my appeal was sent to the appeals team on December 4th, and that my new claim would wait until the appeal was finished since my record could only be in one place at a time.

While it has taken a long time for the appeal, the quick reply to the inquiry was certainly a surprise and remarkable.

I hope the reply was correct----

at least you have hard copy on what they said-

the Iris reply I got over a week ago was so bizarre, (it was fast reply also)that I sent a service complaint to the VBA- what I mean is-if you ask a regular status question -the inquiry goes right to the VARO-

If you send it as a service complaint- it goes to the VBA and then to the VARO- I guess they keep a record of service complaints.

It was so bizarre (what VA said) that I enclosed the inquiry in letter to NVLSP and also to Regional Counsel- it supports my recent FTCA claim but also reveals that the evidence is never making it from the mailroom to the c file. And It shows my vet reps submissions of my evidence never happened either-

Service complaints take about 5 days or more to be re-routed back to the VARO.

I know what you mean about the service complaints, I have sent a couple of those myself. I do hope that what I told was correct.

I hate to ask this, but what is an Iris Inquiry? I have seen the term Iris several times, but don't know what it means.

    • Thanks everyone for their answers and advise and yes Ido have a VSO American legion but unfortunately I still have to manage to work and call times are mornings only almost impossible to talk with him.

       I am gonna try to get ahold of him tomorrow but u have to call right at 0730 eastern OR call list fills and never get on his list sucks!

      The worst thing I’m going through is that I’m stuck in limbo I can’t file on my other things I can’t add nothing I can’t do anything basically my hands are tied, this is complete wearing on me mentally Not to mention I’ve been out of the service since 95 was six service-connected disabilities and then thrown to the wayside as a young adult with no knowledge of how what or when by the VA  now that I’m middle-aged my service-connected disabilities Have gotten so severe that I have multiple secondaries until I came across by chance a VSO in my county that helped me out back in 15 I’d still be at a loss and left at the wayside forgotten about now that I’ve been back in the system And have a 80% rating the VA now is trying to drop two of my ratings because I feel that this DRO rview is going to put me at 100% or really close  in a way to just keep us down and out and causing worse injuries by forcing ourselves to do what we have to as humans to survive in the workforce that you can’t really physically do anymore sucks all the way around!
