    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

I think itsa long wait atleat 12 months

You might try calling the DRO who is to hear your case and ask for an expedite, if you know who your DRO is?

I believe member Navy4life did that with waco R.O. and got moved up with in 2 months.  But when she got there for her DRO Hearing her orginal DRO was not there (on vacation)and they called in another DRO that didn't know her case  and  messed up her entire case

Buck......how do you find out what DRO has been assigned to your Hearing?  Are you saying at least 12 months from the time a NOD was filed?  I filed 14 months ago but have not heard a word since they acknowledged receiving Appeals 13 months ago.  I keep reading that Waco is one of the slowest processors in the nation.  How do you go about asking for an expedite?  I thought you had to be a hardship case like homeless, old age, or terminally ill. I am none  of those.

 If this is a denial decision and you timely filed your NOD AND REQUEST A DRO Hearing  usually it takeS  12 months or longer  b/c of the Waco Backlog. if no hardship case  then you just have to wait , but you can call the 1-800 # and ask about a time line for your DRO Hearing.

Now if you get a proposal to reduce &sent in NOD  you should get a letter from your R.O. to inform you of a DRO Hearing  or go on up to the BVA, DRO Hearing is usually a lot faster to decide your claim.(especially if you have new and material  favorable evidence) or any evidence not shown on record

  when you get your letter  you will have 60 days to respond back to your R.O.

you can call your RO and see if a DRO has been assign to your case? is yes   request his/her name.

If its been more than a Year and you have not heard anything back call your R.O.  & Ask why this is taking so long?

    • 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.
