Which BVA Judge, the Appeal Review Judge (actually a Law Clerk) for the Final Decision BVA Sr. Judge. There's always a possibility of a Reman, have you considered that?

I think I asked you previously, what's his Docket Number? At the very least, when was his BVA Appeal Certified and transferred to the BVA for Docketing?

Trying to pinpoint any type of Reg RO decision or Final BVA Decision is, for the most part, a waste of your time.

Gastone, thanks for answering,  all I know is it says veterans law judge.  I did ask Vso if they could give info on judge.   When hubby filed this claim he stated he wanted them to make the decision.  I have no idea what that means exactly.   Geuss I will just have to go back to the wait n see group.  You ask what his docket number was, well it was 1502319,  but the Vso found out it  the form nine was  was signed on the 12/14instead of 2/15, which is what we had been told by bva.  So the Vso went over and made them put it where it was supposed to be.  St. Let it set on someone desk I geuss.im just hoping for the best.

Mine was in front of the judge for week. Every case is going to be different. I guess it determines the judge, how complicated the case is and how much evidence is presented. I had my arthritis granted and ptsd remanded. So It still could take a while.

Takes about a month.Ive looked over the site and they remand prob 80 percent of appeals and then your claim gets stuck for months or years.Have 11 remands that haven’t been touched for 6 months.

    • 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.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
