@  notapb1 : (18 August 2014 - 07:26 AM) Looking For Feedback. I Have Applied For Iu. Was Told To Come In For A Psych Eval And Diabetes Clinic. Received A Call From Va They Were Cancelling The Psych Eval As The Doc(?) Who Did It In March(Ptsd Increase) Was Asked For His Opinion And He Was Going To Submit That. This Is The Same Individual Who Told Me Off The Record About Iu And To Contact My Service Officer. Sounds Positive To Me, But I May Be A Little Bias. Thoughts?

Hi Betty

Then this means, that while my file is with the AMC, it is advancing on the docket with the BVA. I ll call the BVA Monday
A BVA phone answerer once told me that they were expecting to receive my file back from AMC in about 250 days, it s been 856 days, when I told her how many days I have been waiting, she gasped and said that the AMC was extremely backlogged.



I also read somewhere that the goal for AMC was to have a claim decided in about 400 days.


Happy Trails


Paul

Paul,

All of this stuff is confusing as heck to me. Don't you want the AMC to decide your claim.

I didn't think that it went back to the BVA if the decision is favorable.

I may be wrong, just what one of the counselors told me.

Whether or not you can believe them is anyone's guess.

Good Luck and Call that number that I sent to you.

Always,

Betty

Hiya Betty


Yes, I want AMC to decide my claim. I am confused too. I had Dean tell me that if the claim was approved by the AMC then the BVA is not involved. They do review it if it was denied.

A claim may be expedited at AMC for any of the following reasons:
Advanced on BVA Docket (per BVA).

How does one advance on the BVA docket, when the claim is with AMC?

I ll call that number.

Wow! you have a wealth of knowledge about the AMC. I wish I could help you more.



Happy Trails


Paul

Paul,

When the Regional Office sent me that SSOC and told me that my next step was the BVA, as I filled out the Form- 9 November 2004 and received my denial December 2005.

I was at the BVA before I got there. Make any sense. Not to me???

Anyway, to answer your question, I called the BVA and they told me to call the National Level of the American Legion and a Mr. Sterling helped me get my letter together.

I sent the BVA a 11 or 12 page letter of all of the things that the VA had done to me since 1978 with my first filing and how they have treated me since I discovered my " psychiatric records and the letter by my Commanding Officer, explaining my early discharge. One pot hole to dodge after another.

I am not sure that vets realize you can advance on the docket at the BVA if you can show " Deliberate Negligence" on the part of the VA.

I tried it and wrote them the story of my life of being in service, acquiring those records and those two C&P examinations being 5 months apart.

The Chairman sent me a letter that I showed good cause to advance.

The R. O sent my claims file to the BVA February 2005 and I received my remand to the AMC April 2006. Two months later.

( Strange things are still happening to me.)

I am not sure that I have much knowledge of the system, but I sure know how to get the telephone numbers.

Good Luck Paul,

Betty
