  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Average wait time for an expedited appeal decision once the judge receives it?

Question

The BVA judge received my expedited appeal on March 9, 2018 but l have not received a decision yet.  Vets.gov lists the wait time as 1-2 months but it's been almost 4 so I would really appreciate any feedback from those of you who have had yours expedited regarding wait time for a decision.  I'm praying for all of my fellow brothers and sisters who are still fighting.  THANK YOU SO MUCH in advance for your help...God bless all of you and thank you for your service!

Unfortunately it seems the RO's do not adhere to the remands being expedited.  Do you have a VSO or a lawyer?  You can call the VA hotline but do not contact a congressman, unless you have a personal relationship with one the VA will respond with a form letter and the congressman will send you a letter telling you what the VA said.  In the meantime your case goes back to the bottom of the pile.

Vetquest, thank you for replying.  This is not a remand but I suppose that doesn't matter to the VA since nothing else seems to.  I have an attorney who checks VACOLS every morning and have tried to call the BVA status line several times at different times of day but no one ever answers so I'm frustrated like all of us.  I agree...going the Congressional Rep. route will only delay it more since all work has to stop so that the inquiry can be done.  Well, thank you again for taking the time to reply and best wishes for you and all of our fellow vets...thank you for your service!

Pwrslm, thank you for replying, too.  Won't calling the WH hotline number generate a similar Congressional type inquiry that would delay it further?  Where did you get that number and have you used it with any success?  Thanks again for taking the time to try to help and best wishes to you and thank you for your service!

No.

WH is a POTUS supervised VA back door, the Congressional is a formal inquiry.

 

Every time I have used the WH HL it moved my solution faster, or forced the VA to follow their own rules.  Us their own playbook against them and they will do exactly what you want them to do. This is the USC, CFR and the M21R inclusive. If you do end up with VR&E, that is covered by M28R. These are the VBA's operation manuals. They also have a ton of directives and handbooks detailing how each section functions, interpretations of rules and policy letters, etc. It may take some time to find the right thing, but if you are right and stick to your guns, there isnt much they can do about it.

    • 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.
