Wounded Warrior Status
« on: March 20, 2015, 01:02:52 am »
I have wounded warrior status but it does not matter.  I Don't know if this is true but I was told by another veteran that wounded warrior does not speed up the time you get your ALJ.....

It is NOT true.

Wounded Warrior Status gives expedited processing for hearings also.

I don't have anything to add that will help you, but I wanted to thank you for your service, and thank your family for the sacrifices they made that allowed you to serve your country.

I hope you have success on your claim, and that you receive an approval soon.

It's EXTREMELY fast in Wichita, KS! I am 100% SC via the VA. I filled 8mo ago, was denied twice, and after forcing SSA to acknowledge I am a Wounded Warrior, 3wks later I have a Hearing date in 2mo with a On The Record review sooner.

I was not under the Wounded Warrior Program as I was initially retired in Feb 96, however I was 100% SC and they did not want to give me priority as they have outlined. I went to my congressman and it took exactly 3 weeks and I had my back pay after waiting 14 months with no answers and being brushed off by local office, 1800, and Philadelphia DDS. Make sure that any correspondence you do is well written and looked over 3 and 4 times for accuracy and grammar. This goes a long way in communicating your issues to all involved. :Main05:

I gave my attorney a copy of my VA 100% permanent and total paperwork, it did expedite the decision timelines even though I have been denied twice. I was informed yesterday that my wounded warrior expedite request for a hearing was approved by the judge here in San Antonio, TX. My lawyer said it usually is a 14-18 month process for a hearing but with this approval it will be scheduled around the 6-8 month timeline. So it has helped in regards to timing, however not for an approval, hopefully the judge will review my case and approve before a hearing.
