Re: The appeals "black hole" (reply)
One issue is that the knee jerk reaction on a denied claim is to appeal.  Sometimes the appeals produce a favorable result and sometimes the appeal is denied.  However, the cases that are denied at the appeal level clog up the appeals...

Re: I've got IU P&T and Don't think I should (reply)
If and when you get to a point that you want to work, then inform the VA but until that time arrives, get better and use the IU money as you have definitely earned it.

Re: Re-evaluation....what just happened here? (reply)
My only question would be, why would you submit a claim for anything not life threatening after being awarded 100%?  Why poke the hornet's nest?

Re: what will the benefit side think (reply)
If you are uncomfortable with going through the therapy then do some research on it on the Internet.  If after reading about it, you still do not want to pursue it, then discuss it with your doc.  See if he/she can address your concerns...

Re: Need Advise...Scheduled C&P (reply)
Call them (VA) and advise of your condition.  Also, call the local VA clinic and see if they can provide transportation for you.  If that is not fruitful, call some of the local veteran's organizations and inquire about transportation....

Re: Statement of Benefits Letter (reply)
Was the temp. 100% due to the surgery on your back for the recovery period?  If so, your next C&P will be to gauge what your percentage should be after the surgery.

Re: VONAP CLAIM (reply)

Re: New Claim for SC knees??? (reply)
Put all your information together and file a claim for your knees.  It sounds like the knees were at least aggravated in the service.  You know what you will get if you do not file the claim.  Good luck going forward.
