Decision Review Officer

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

My husband called to check on the status of his TDIU & CUE claims and was told that they were with the Decision Review Officer.

Questions: (1) What does this mean and is this a good thing; (2) How long does it take for a decision to be made (1, 2, or 3 months longer); and (3) What is the next step after this?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Yes, a good thing - the claim is being actively decided

Decision, probably less than 3 months, I guess no more than.... Note:*see Carlies post above, better information.cg

Next step - the decision will be mailed to you. If decided in favor, there will be a deposit. If denied, there are steps to take to appeal.

see http://www.hadit.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=1513

will keep positive thoughts for you and yours,

Cowgirl'up!

Charleese,

If he called the 800 number pay very LITTLE attention to

their answer.

Had he filed a NOD and requested a De Novo Review?

Questions: (1) What does this mean and is this a good thing;

See above

(2) How long does it take for a decision to be made (1, 2, or 3 months longer); and

It depends on how backlogged your VARO is,

who actually has the claim and if they are working on it or,

if it is sitting somewhere inside a pile of other claims or,

if it's actually before the DRO's eyes and the DRO feels some additional

development needs to be done... etc...

It could be 3-24 months before a Rating Decision is promulgated.

(3) What is the next step after this?

If everything is granted - money in the bank.

If it's a partial grant - NOD what was denied.

If it's a total denial - Submit a substantially completed VA Form 9

and get in line of about 3-5 years for BVA.

jmho,

carlie
