New Lengthy "decision Phase" For Claims

4 posts in this topic

I just got off the phone with the 800-827-1000 # in which I was inquiring about my TDIU claim which has been in the "Decision Phase" since Jan 3, 2011. It was my understanding that the national average was 16 -27 days give or take depending on the claim specifics in order to complete this phase. I was informed by the veterans rep that this information was based on last years standards and that as of Nov 2010 there were SEVERAL HUNDRED THOUSAND more claims placed on the VA RO's plates and now the decision phase takes several months to complete. I do'nt know how accurate this is but I thought I would pass it along to my fellow veterans regardless. Semper Fi! Gunny.

The VA has never done anything within 16-27 days! (well, they have, I guess, but not very damned often)

Having said that, I do not think that it will take "months", as in, say, 6 or 8 months or longer.

BTW, never call the 800#, unless you have nothing else important to do (such as watching Opra, washing dishes, scrubbing commodes, etc.).

Always use the IRIS button on the VA website to communicate with the VA. Much better responses and IN WRITING!

I hope for your satisfaction, soon.

Call the 800 number back and ask them what you are missing for your TDIU Claim.

The above will not produce a sufficient nor adequate answer.
