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
