Question

Three weeks ago I sent in new and relevant evidence to the VA to support my claim increase for a single disability via my VSO. I had Dr. notes, a Private dr. filled out DBQ, and VA Dr. notes...  I just received an update on va.gov saying my case closed and to contact my VSO for further details? I have an email sent to my VSO as of a few minutes ago. does that seem a little to fast?

GBArmy nothing makes me think he wouldn't screw up again. He would not call me, even after I asked him to, only email. He Promised me this time he would send in everything. I think he did actually do his job this time because QTC called me for a C&P exam (which I talked about in a different post) and they did have my civilian Dr. DBQ and notes from my Dr. this time.      

Sounds like it did go in but call the VA and ask if those records are in your file. They should be able to see them. 

Buy yourself some cheap insurance from the USPS next time.  Walk down to the post office, send your documents in yourself, certified mail, return receipt requested. Keep those receipts forever with the copies of your documents.  Never give anyone your originals. Make a note in a file that you sent this on this date and what it was.  Don't bother sending them via your VSO, it will only clutter the file.

Mail to:
DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS
CLAIMS INTAKE CENTER
PO BOX 4444
JANESVILLE, WI 53547-4444

You may want to put your name, case number, and page # of ##,  on every page.  Makes it harder to lose one in the mix.

dodger. Too may possibilities to speculate. Not worth it. If you don't hear from your VSO in a reasonable amount od time, put a call into him/her.  Hopefully, they have VBMS so you can maybe get more details.

So my VSO told me i was going to get a letter from VA saying the following... “We received your medical evidence which discusses the symptoms of your medical condition. Review of your claim file shows you submitted private medical records labeled headache diary received March 17, 2020. These records were available for review but could not be read due to poor quality.” 

I don't know if they are referring to everything or just the diary being poor quality? in any case they closed my claim over an unreadable diary? 6 other medical evidence items like the VA form 20-0995, private Dr. DBQ,  Private Dr. notes,  VA Dr. Notes,  and MRI, should have been way more than enough to show increase in frequency.

That’s how my supplemental claim went for TDIU and migraines (not a claim increase like yours). My supplemental claim was opened and closed in five days. I have an IME w/ IMO from a board-certified specialist and was still denied.

Hopefully, your claim increase is successful.

Your VSO "should" have VBMS access, so he and you can view your file and "see" what is illegible.  Then send the illegible information to VA.  If your VSO does not have VBMS access, my advice is to get one who does.  

I wonder why your VSO didnt tell you this?  Wait, I know.  They either dont care, or dont know.

I think some VSO and Accredited VA Claims Agents don't have access to the VBMS,,,WHY? I DON'T KNOW?...They Should!!!

OTHER THAN THAT THEY MAY HAVE TO PASS A SECURITY CLEARANCE TEST of some kind?

 I Need to call my VA Accredited Claims Agent and ask if he has VBMS Access?  if he don't then I may not hire him.?

Because I know for a fact some records are missing from my C-FILE.

    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?”
