I always thought by law a FOIA request needed to be addressed within 30 days. This is what I found on Ebenefits (keep in mind I originally submitted a FOIA for my C-File and any related rating documents 11/2014 but apparently they now have no record of the request. I submitted the request again in May and didn't even receive acknowledgement until July.

Sometimes the VA will call a CUE on themselves when they see that they are clearly wrong. I claimed SMC "S" based on Bradley VS Peake. I did not know I was filing a CUE, but the VA said they had made a CUE. I got this very quickly. On the other hand, I filed a CUE claim due to defective decision in my original claim. I spent 8 years on that and lost. When you file a CUE claim it is a claim like other claims except you don't have protections like "benefit of doubt". The VA must make a decision on the CUE and you can appeal that decision. Asknod says a CUE should be visible from the moon. The error must be so clear and undebatable that it flashes like a neon sign. I really found out the hard way. Reason, logic , right or wrong have little to do with it. When I got "S" I got a decision that stated the VA had declared a CUE and I got my SMC and 2 years retro. There is no secret CUE. It is a decision like any other except it has strong powers and many problems getting there.
sounds good to make yourself look good I got to
see it to believe it. Maybe the VA is changing but not that much
If I win a cue claim in 3 months I would post decision but that's
just me just make sure it has cue in decision lol.
I look all over the net and still cant find a CUE REVIEW
WHAT THE HELL IS IT. Can anybody explain this to us all??
The only cue review is from your post. when you get your decision
post how VA says it was a CUE or reconsideration. You just don't win a cue
for an EED WITHOUT THE CLAIM being close and you won a cue in three months
don't sound right .jmho RU
