    • As Berta noted, its really the information they want that is contained on the form, that happens to have "PTSD" in the title.   There isn't a "Statement in Support of Claim for Stressors, but not PTSD stressors" form yet :)
    • IF you have any saved letters from your wife (vice versa), photos etc that could help, as could your medical records.  Medical records are frequently used to put people in RVN with no other evidence to do so. 
    • Wayne, Buck has been intimating that the VA is cracking down on the SA compensations. Perhaps they feel that folks aren't using the machines and/or tampering with the results. They are ever looking for ways to reduce fraud.  That said, it's about my health. The machine literally reduces my apneas to normal levels. I sleep better, I feel better and many symptoms are improving. My doctor tells me that I will return to very severe OSA without using it. Oh and by the way, my wife will sleep in the same room again. I suppose a yearly visit to the VA with the machine is worth the peace of mind and the compensation.
    • The VA started what is called the National Work Queue.  In theory, claims will stay with the ROJ as much as possible, but may be sent to another office depending on the load there, in an effort to improve timeliness.    In reality, this may not happen.  As a result, your claim has been shifting from one office to the next, depending on the state of the claim, and may be bounced around quite a bit before the claim is completely done.   Appeals are not being worked under the NWQ at the moment.   You can search google for more information on NWQ.
    • EODCMC......I was told to bring my CPAP to VAMC in on my first anniversary date.......doesn't make a lot of sense to me either if all there going to do is extract a chip and replace with a new one. I assume the chip is not easy to locate or retrieve and that they need to insert a new one anyway to insure functionality.  I am assuming you just walk in with the CPAP, they extract what they need and then add a new chip, and you return home with it same day for that night.  Has anyone actually experienced bringing in their CPAP to a VAMC Sleep Study Lab and exactly what takes place there? I doubt they're able to monitor from my home, which is a great advantage for you EODCMC, since they said bring the hardware with me.

2011 Bva Cycle Times

9 posts in this topic

According to the Chairman of the Board of Veterans Appeals ( Bva's) 2011 annual report to the Secretary of the Department of Veterans Affairs, the average time once file is certified and in reciept at bva and a decision is rendered is 240 days. Of these 240 days, 119 of them is the average cycle time for bva,s time to make that decision, with the remaining 121 days being the average time your vso has the file for review or arguments before returning file to the VLJ. This is interesting in that my appeal has been certified and been with the VLJ since the 23rd. of march 2012 and i am representing myself after revocation of my POA, and waiving reconsideration of regional office consideration.

My guess is that you won't have any resolve from BVA for 18 - 24 months minimum.

Based on the above statement, at what point is the claim actually filed at BVA.

NOD Phase?

VA for 9 Substabtive Appeal Phase?

or

When it is actually mailed by the VARO and in the physical possesion of the BVA?
