"Award returned to local VSR for correction"?


SKScott

Question

Hello, everyone!  I've been on this site reading all the valuable information while I waited for my new claims to process.  A local VSO initiated my intent to file, back in March of this year, and I brought in all of the requested documents for an appointment on July 11.  This is when the file was formally submitted to the VA. I had two new claims. I was given two C&P appointments, for each issue...one in July, and the other in August.  I called Peggy to find out the status, last Thursday, and I was told that my file had been updated that very day.  It appeared there was a rating decision, but I would have to wait for the BBE to find out the details.  I checked the site again, a few days later.  I finally could see that I had been rated (at 70%) for one issue, but the second issue (bilateral pes planus) had been deferred.  On Ebenefits, the entire claim, it appeared, went from "preparing for notification," back to the "gathering evidence" stage.  When I called for an explanation, I was told that it possibly needed another signature, but Peggy wasn't for sure.  Peggy also said that, according to the notes, there was nothing that the VA needed from me.  Today, my Ebenefits account was updated, and it had new information.  The new information was put under claim status as "Request 2: Award returned to local VSR for correction."  (I inserted a link below to a screenshot of my claim status.)  Is anyone familiar with this issue and can explain what it means?

Pretty much exactly what it says. The reasons that it could go back for  correction could be so many that it really doesnt do much good to speculate on it. Ive had a claim go from preparation for notification to gathering evidence several times in a week or two right before its actually completed. They don't have a claim status for every possible situation, and something needed to be corrected on yours, so they put it under that status. Its really not worth it to worry about it all that much. 

 

FYI- The peggy reps can't see all that much more, if anything, than you can, on Ebenefits. Thats why the website was created- to give another option to veterans rather than waiting on the phone for a rep to tell them what they could look up on their own.

Yes, I know everyone wants to hold what ebenefts says as gospel, and to get advanced notice that they can count on.  

Neither of these apply.   In all cases, rather than speculate on what ebenefits says, you have to wait for the decision.  You would be better off asking your 5 year old neighbor kid for an explanation, and his would likely be more reliable.  Wait for the envelope, then decide what to do.

But whatever you do don’t ask Peggy again anything if you can it’s more frustrating. But if your able too,  I have always had luck actually going to the RO and see the person face to face. But then again I only live ten minutes away from the RO. They can and will explain to you the reasoning not some BS answer on the phone..

      Had a C&P exam and these are my symptoms that the Dr checked. Depressed mood, Anxiety, Chronic sleep impairment, Flatten affect, Disturbances of motivation and mood, Difficulty in establishing and maintaining effective work and social relationships, Difficulty in adapting to stressful circumstances, including work and work like setting, and Suicidal ideation. I looked at the criteria and it seems to rate around 50% as l see it. Does anyone see it differently? The Dr checked the box that says Occupational and social impairment with reduced reliability and productivity. McRay the Dr noted that I have low acute risk of suicidal ideation. This isn't just a one off suicidal ideation is mentioned in other section of my medical records.

      I have somewhere in my personal files a contemporaneous "restricted report" of some hazing against me that involved forced sodomy. I never claimed it but I do have ratings for depression and anxiety at the most appropriate percentage. Is there a point in me ever claiming MST? I don't know if this is a Pandora's Box that I want to open.
      Opinions would be appreciated.

      Hi,
      Last week, I was awarded P&T TDIU for a claim that was previously awarded 70% mental health disability rating.  Should I now appeal the 70% mental health rating?  The word "total" is difference between a 70% and 100% mental health rating, as I read the information. Is P&T unemployable possibly considered as a 100% disability rating?
      Thanks

      Hello, 
      Does anyone know how the VA rates keratoconus currently? The diagnostic code is 6035. I am new to all this and have been unsuccessful in finding the specifics using the VASDR. I have been diagnosed with bilateral keratoeonus and would like to better inform myself on how it is rated. I am awaiting a decision back from the VA but my case and evidence is overwhelming. To date, I have found only one article dating back to 2008 that appeared to show the  minimum rating use to be 30% but I am unable to gauge the accuracy. Any assistance is helpful.

      hello
      I first applied for SC status Mar 1, 2010. 
      I was awarded 70% SC on Feb 18, 2011.
      Does my 10 years start running from date of application in 2010 or the date of the decision/award in 2011?
      thanks for any help

    • I already get compensation for bladder cancer for Camp Lejeune Water issue, now that it is added to Agent Orange does it mean that the VA should pay me the difference between Camp Lejeune and 1992 when I retired from the Marine Corps or do I have to re-apply for it for Agent Orange, or will the VA look at at current cases already receiving bladder cancer compensation. I’m considered 100% Disabled Permanently

      The 5, 10, 20 year rules...



      Five Year Rule) If you have had the same rating for five or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless your condition has improved on a sustained basis. All the medical evidence, not just the reexamination report, must support the conclusion that your improvement is more than temporary.



      Ten Year Rule) The 10 year rule is after 10 years, the service connection is protected from being dropped.



      Twenty Year Rule) If your disability has been continuously rated at or above a certain rating level for 20 or more years, the VA cannot reduce your rating unless it finds the rating was based on fraud. This is a very high standard and it's unlikely the rating would get reduced.



      If you are 100% for 20 years (Either 100% schedular or 100% TDIU - Total Disability based on Individual Unemployability or IU), you are automatically Permanent & Total (P&T). And, that after 20 years the total disability (100% or IU) is protected from reduction for the remainder of the person's life. "M-21-1-IX.ii.2.1.j. When a P&T Disability Exists"



      At 55, P&T (Permanent & Total) or a few other reasons the VBA will not initiate a review. Here is the graphic below for that. However if the Veteran files a new compensation claim or files for an increase, then it is YOU that initiated to possible review.



      NOTE: Until a percentage is in place for 10 years, the service connection can be removed. After that, the service connection is protected.



      ------



      Example for 2020 using the same disability rating



      1998 - Initially Service Connected @ 10%



      RESULT: Service Connection Protected in 2008



      RESULT: 10% Protected from reduction in 2018 (20 years)



      2020 - Service Connection Increased @ 30%



      RESULT: 30% is Protected from reduction in 2040 (20 years)

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,
