Unfortunately  yes they denied your claim or parts of it  you won't know why until you get there reasons and bases of their decision,

but once you get it read the decision very carefully .

Do not quit thats what they want KEEP UP THE FIGHT,   so just keep your appeal time line going usually you will need to appeal to the BVA  form 9

I have never had luck at the DRO.  It seem like a waste of space as they have never changed anything for me.  Even with a mountain of evidence pointing in the right direction!  Sadly the BVA is better than the DRO.  

That being said do not give up!  Keep fighting!  I have had 2 of my three issues overturned and waiting on the last one.  Which I think I will also get.  Also it seems much faster than they have been in the past with the new process.  

I would say get it to the BVA process and then just take a break from this!  My 6 year wait is nothing compared to some on here.  The good thing is they seem to be moving faster, much faster!

I think it depends on each claim as for as going for  DRO Hearing.

I had a DRO Hearing one time before I was denied believe it or not...on  Proposal to reduce my benefits on the word of a VA EMT Dr..I had to use a private specialist to rebutt this VA Dr  and the DRO had no choice but to believe my specialist over this VA Doc with is good explantion of his Impression and examination of my condition, I not only got to keep my 50% (at the time) but was awarded a30% increase and 10% for tinnitus  which brought my ratings to a combined 90% and the DRO gave me the TDIU with P&T....So I think it depends on each claim and evidence submitted.

  Although I stood up face to face with my DRO and showed him my disability was real and in-fact worsen over the years.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

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

    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
