    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

Is the VA still processing claim during the Coronavirus?

Question

Hi,

Do you know if the VA is still processing claims during the coronavirus outbreak or if the offices have closed down?  My claim has been sitting in Preparation for Discussion for a week now.

I was wondering the same exact thing. My claim hasn't been touched since March 11th, 2020, and before it was every week someone would work the files. I have an IU claim in and just waiting on previous employer to send form back. I submitted evidence March 14th that hasn't been reviewed.

If you are waiting on an employer form there is nothing else to work on your case until either the form comes back or VA has tried twice to get the form from the employer- they request it twice, after that if they don't get it they send you a letter that says its on you to try to get the former employer to fill it out, or you can waive it and then your file can proceed.

Correct, I understand what you're speaking about, but I have a 2 files in the claim since the 11th untouched/reviewed.

That I can't tell you. Im sorry. I don't know. Claims are assigned to people electronically to work, so they DO get audited and those that are sitting in suspense somewhere get picked up and re-assigned. but I don't know much more than that.

I called the VA 800 number yesterday and they said my higher level review was complete Friday April 18 and the VA mailed my decision Monday April 20. They would have to be working to make a decision:) 

That said, VA.gov still shows the case open and ebenefits refers you to VA.gov. Not sure how often VA.gov gets updated. Perhaps brokensoldier244 may have insight to that process?

Many thanks to the raters and other team members that are working through COVID-19.

Be safe!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
