  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

LEGACY NOD QUESTION

Question

Good Morning. I just filed my NOD about a week ago. Mailed it to the intake center and received notification and signed receipt by the intake center for it. My question is roughly how long does it take to show up on the website as received and in process?

Thanks for all the input. Maybe my question was fuzzy. How long should it take for the VA to scan and upload my appeal documents in the the VA.Gov website and show that they have at least received my appeals?

I should only take a couple of minutes per page. But what you probably want to know is when will they get around to doing it. I don't think any of us know.

RAMP was discontinued on February 15, 2019, ahead of full implementation of the Appeals Modernization Act.

Does that statement not say that RAMP was a partial implementation of AMA?

it absolutely does, however the AMA process has superseded any RAMP process and some of the decisions on process for RAMP as a preview of AMA have changed.

RAMP was always an interim process. A beta test in geek speak. The VA basically pushed out what they thought might work before they actually put the legal process requirements of AMA in place. They were extremely upfront about the fact the laws requirements were not being completely met by RAMP, and that they had not built out the systems and processes to fulling implement the law. The VA Secretary testified before the Senate that they could not meet the target implementation dates and officially asked for a waiver on hitting those dates.

It is like the rollout of the "new" version of Choice they put out. Choice now says that vets can use certain civilian urgent care centers, yet as recently as yesterday the full list of UCC's was not in place across many states and political divisions. The VA does not have contracts fully in place for private providers, particularly in rural areas, that Vets can use instead of driving more than 30 minutes (or more) to a VA medical center.

Few Private Doctors have had the paperwork training needed and access to the VA medical systems implemented, but according to the new Choice announcement Vets can start using that system now.

Just like RAMP ended and AMA began this new Choice 2.0 will morph into Choice 2.5 or 3.0 at some near point in time and cause significant confusion when that next change happens. I am going to predict now that in a year or less vets and vets groups are going to be setting their hair on fire over the implementation of Choice and the ultimate financial impact on VAMC funding.

For better or worse some veterans are still in legacy and Ramp. Theoretically those vets are going to be given a chance to get out of the older systems when they get their next SOC or SSOC. We will have to wait and see if that happens and how many vets take advantage of that option.

No I did mean when should I see that I have a claim submitted in the website. I know it will take some time for them to even start reviewing it. 

Does it go from the national intake center to the Regional RO here in Virginia before it is actually scanned to the website?

    • Hello Defenders of freedom!

      I have a question pertaining to this denial for headaches. The decision letter is quoted below. 

       

      3. Service connection for headaches.

      "We may grant service connection for a disability which began in military service or was caused by some event or experience in service.

      Your STRs are negative for any treatment of or diagnosis of headaches. On your post-deployment exam in 2005 you denied any headaches. On separation, you denied any headaches. VA treatment records are negative for any treatment of or diagnosis of headaches. On VA exam, the examiner stated there was no evidence of any residuals of a traumatic brain injury.

      We have denied service connection for headaches because the evidence of record fails to show this disability was incurred in or caused by military service."

      From my understanding these 3 points must be overturned to successfully win a CUE case:

       (1) either the correct facts, as they were known at the time, were not before the adjudicator or the statutory or regulatory provisions in existence at that time were incorrectly applied; 

      (2) the error must be undebatable and of the sort which, had it not been made, would have manifestly changed the outcome at the time of the prior determination

      and (3) a determination that there was CUE must be based on the record and law that existed at the time of the prior adjudication in question.  

      @Berta, or veterans out here who have knowledge/experience, tell me what facts you think would be needed to prove this denial for headaches was an error?

    • In 2014 I put in a claim request for A&A due to housebound and secondary seizures to PTSD.    I request a legacy appeal to move to RAMP and now am in A Higher Level of Review.   It was in the Decision Review Stage in March 2019. It now is back to Gathering evidence.  I had requested  Feb 2019 for the VA to make a determination of the appeal based on all evidence currently in the case fine. It is now end of July 2019.  I just saw the estimated completion date of May 20, 2020 changed to August 2020.  The Modernnization/RAMP said that it would take approximately 120 days  Its now been 5 years since I submitted my claim and part  of that has been in appeal for close to four years.  How can I even tell if my appeal is being worked.  I am 65 years old and know I may have to send my appeal onto BVA, I may be dead before a conclusion is made.  I am also single so have no dependents that could receive back pay.  Is the VA playing me?  I have no representation or VSO
    • My claim went back to gathering of evidence after I had my second c&p exam for tbi initial. My vso the Dav said it was a dbq to differentiate the symptoms of tbi and PTSD as far as social and occupational impairment. I recieved at least as likely as not on all exams, PTSD, both tbi exams. Has anyone experienced this or know what it means? Is this a good sign my claim will be granted ? Thank you.

    • Do I have to quit my job?
      Hello everyone. See Below for what I received from VA

       

      A little about me currently. I have a job that is very low stress (work nights no people no stress) very secure because I work in a mountain so im surrounded by granite. I work on computers so it engages my mind and keeps me as active as possible and is my passion. So my question is do I have to quit my job? Thanks!
