The ROs are out of work- File Claims!

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

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 getting IMs saying they have nothing to do. They even finished my claim.

The VA isn't going to downsize, they'll have them do something.

My fear is that 'something' will be what's been tried before- Re-hash old claims.

So file.

The VA is too good at having a 2 hour job take a year to ever be "out of work".  They proved that with the "certification" of BVA appeals.  It was a half hour job that took 2 years.  With inefficiences like that, they will never be out of work.

The way that veterans are filing appeals, that is just pure job security for the VA. Even the honest mistakes can take years to resolve.

Just checked on va.gov. After being in their system for about three weeks, my HLR/CUE is still saying 4 to 5 months for completion.

Perhaps idle employees are the ones who do not not pull from the national work queue.

Checking on status for your claim  on Va.gov is pretty much a waste of time. They just aren't going to provide any insight as to what's happening. To improve upon the info available would be, in the VA's point of view, counterproductive. The more insight provided, the more questions that will be asked by the veterans. So, they aren't saying anything. I have one currently in HLR; the very nature of that type of claim should result in a fairly quick decision. I mean, you don't provide anymore new evidence. Just review it! It is possible that some will require an addition C&P because current info is outdated or missing, but not all cases. It's more than likely going to take around 100 days, not 125 for most so they show improvement on their goals, but HLR is definitely one lane that could improve turn around time.

@GBArmy Yeah, the web site provides a very vague status.

You are right about HLRs. I had to submit an HLR because the VA failed to process my CUE correctly (ignored the existing evidence that was described in my CUE motion).

    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
