VA has changed the way they decide claims. With the introduction of the new RAMP program, there are twelve less ROs deciding regular claims. They are brokered out around the country using the National

My claim went back and forth, back and forth. Almost everyday it changes but I wouldn't worry about it.

Most of the time as we near the end of the year, you will start to see this. Last year I had a claim do the same thing, and within 6 wks it was completed. Try not to get to worked up. Good luck and God Bless!!

Thanks.

I never had this problem with my first Knee replacement it only took 6 weeks to get the 100% temp and be awarded 30% disability, but now I had to have the knee replaced again with all new hardware on the same knee I did not think I would end up with this much trouble for another 100% temp again seems like this time it is being stonewalled until someone feels like getting around to it, and if they do then the Retro back pay from June 4th 2018 you would think they would try to avoid that mess.

VA has changed the way they decide claims. With the introduction of the new RAMP program, there are twelve less ROs deciding regular claims. They are brokered out around the country using the National Work Queue (NWQ). St. Paul, Roanoke and Philadelphia have become "super-VA" rating centers.  Seattle, San Diego, Atlanta and a few others no longer do claims of any sort (other than RAMP). I'm not sure about Portland but I do have several clients there who seem to be getting their claims done locally. As Navy04 points out, at this time of the year there are extra pressures like homelessness or medical exigency that put others ahead of the rest to the front of the line.

Do you know if the Waco Tx R.O. 701 Clay St  is handling Regular claims? 

I got Veterans asking me about this that opt to the RAMP and have not heard a word about their claim status??...via e benefits or the 1 -800# After the 125 days.

What is happening Veterans think just because the RAMP Says the new RAMP climates will have a decision in 125 days  naturally they opt into RAMP and their finding this not to be true.

  I figure they would be hold ups  for homeless and special medical circumstances.

      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,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
