    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

New BVA Chairmans report for 2018 is out.

Question

It has information about RAMP in it.  

https://www.bva.va.gov/Chairman_Annual_Rpts.asp

It says, if you add up the numbers, it now takes 1718 days, on average, to complete a BVA appeal plus an additional 467 days "remand time factor", for a total of 2185 days.  That is almost 6 years.

The chairmans report, FOR COMPENSATION claims shows:

1.  36.2% are allowed.

2.  39.18% are remanded.  (Oh goody, you get to wait 6 more years to appeal the remand!)

3.  20.11% are denied.  

As far as representation goes,

Worst is WWP (Wounded Warriors Project) where 25.9% of their claimants are denied.  

Best is Attorney represent claimants, where just 13.9 percent are denied.  Your chances are about double when you are attorney represented.

This proves the VA is really good at making veterans wait and very bad at getting decisions right the first time

If the VA can make a vet wait long enough the vet has a tendency to die!

You bet- I do not understand why the VA has allowed VAROs to get away with incompetence.

For DECADES!  And the VA knows what VAROs have the worse rate of  denials that are overturned either by the BVA, or by the claimant themsleves,probably with a costly IMO/IME.- the first time, for most- that someone ( a real doctor independent of the VA ) actually reads ALL of their evidence.

A Remand is technically a "re do "of what the VA should have done in the first place, in most claims.

Actually I do know why the ROs get away with it- a denial is a fast way not to consider all of the evidence.

And there is absolutely no acountability for VAROs to do their job right in the first place.

I told VA via IRIS that if I do not receive a copy of a specific signed C & P I got some time ago- by today Jan 15th, I will contact the OAWB about it tomorrow.

I dont care if I get it or not however, I have my complaint prepared based on the SOC rendition.

I won that claim in less than one month under CUE- because they had my sole piece of evidence to award it.

It was an IMO done in 1998 by a VACO Cardiologist, who still works at the VA.The veteran is deeased so those finding from this VACO doc are still as viable today as they were when she did the IMO for the General COunsel for my FTCA award.

I asked here if anyone here is willng to contact OAWB on thee lusy C & P exams...so far one vet said they would-I need to find that post-

Not only does the GAO know about this crap, Congress knows, and NVLSP knows, but one thing I know too-

Nothing will be done about this until Vets themselves make a stink.

The man handling an investgation on another seperate matter, due to my WH Hot line call months ago- was shocked as to what one of my C & P exams said- I am sending it to him tomorrow-

I have 2 main issues going at OAWB-and  the evidence I have for the initial issue is  overwhelming-I have been collecting it for over 15 years and neither Congress, nor the OGC would do anything about it.

Finally someone is looking into it. I cant be here much. This all takes a lot of time and fortunately I have access to almost all of my past PCs,

And many do ,just like my husand did, wth 2 claims pending.

VA is counting on your survivors to not have a clue on DIC and VA hopes they get a POA who does not have a clue either.None of mine did. I did far better with my claims as a survivor when I rescinded my POAs.

    • 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.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
