For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 

 

Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 

 

This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.

 

 

Question

I'm new to the site and I've been reading a lot of posts talking about how seeing claim or appeal status via vets.gov/VA.gov. I was able to use this site for my regular claims, but for my supplemental claims, I have always had the status of "We don't know your status". 

I also had two of my "issues on review" just completely disappear from the tracking site. I've called Peggy and I've gone through the "Submit a question to VA" and they both had no idea what was going on. 

 

Has any body else dealt with issues like this on vets.gov/VA.gov?

Its a concern when "issues disappear".  If its a short period of time such as less than 3 weeks, then dont worry about it disappearing.  It could mean your benefits have been granted and ebenefits hasnt been updated!!

After about 2 or 3 weeks, tho, you need to start taking action.  38CFR 3.103 says you are "entitled to a written decision".  The problem is VA does not always do that.  I have had 2 issues which "disappeared", that VA TRIED not to adjuticate, but instead just hoped I would not notice.  I noticed!!!!!  

1.  They "forgot" arthritis of the knee.  I then saw in a rating sheet they quietly put it Not service connected without an VARO decision letter.  

2.  They "forgot" to adjuticate tdiu.  I held them to the fire on this one, and recently won an earlier effective date for TDIU.   Im 100 percent convinced they shredded my evidence, but that is moot now since I have won everthing I could expect (100 percent plus SMC S).  

      The arthritis issue has become moot, and wont change my compensation 1 cent, so I let it go.  However, I have had a total knee replacement and, if I think I may need aid and attendance becausee of a fake knee gone wrong, I will fight again.  Right now, my knee surgery went well, and Im doing great on a implanted plastic and metal knee prosthesis.  (I broke my leg in service).  

      I would need to pay for an IMO to link my arthritis/knee replacement to the in service fracture.   Since it wont change my compensation, I am not persuing this at this time.

You nailed it on the head. My VSO just called to let me know that one of those missing issues was granted and put me to 100% P&T!

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

    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
