  • 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.

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

    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

SPO

C-file wait time

Question

So I have crossed over the 6 month mark since requesting my c-file.  I have checked online and called the 800 number without getting any further information.  I have also tried contacting Mary Ann Wentzel, who's name has come up in multiple places, but the email was not deliverable.  Any other ideas to get an actual status, or to get this thing moving before I run out of appeal time?

SPO, That has come up many times in the past and unfortunately, there isn't an answer you want to hear. You can't make them give you a response timeline, or, make them give you a copy. They would say they are "exhausting" all possible place for your "complete" file. I don't think 6 months is unusual. Sorry.

SPO it can take forever with everything else. I requested mine in March and they are still gathering information. Nothing you can do. Its the painful process we have to deal with. Hope it comes in soon for you. I'm not expecting much since i've been trying to get my medical records since 2010 and they can't find them. Good luck

Not sure how many times you sent in a request but more than once is better  than just once.

Send in the FOIA  Each time so they don''t mail you back  snail mailand tell you to send in a signed FOIA.

 I request my C-file through the Janesville Wi claims center  by regular mail  and requested it again from NRPC in St Louis...they kinda frown that I had requested it twice  but I got  sooner than 6 months.

Alex Graham  AKA  Asknod  said to request it more than once  your bound to get it sooner or later  in my case it was sooner.   let them piss and moan if they don't like it.

Mary Ann is no longer at the NRPC -RMG..I GUESS SHE RETIRED OR QUIT? She was very helpful getting my C-FILE IN 2012

Mine took 8 months to get. I think at month 6-7 I asked about the status.

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
