How long does it normally take to get results from a traveling board judge? I meet a BVA Traveling Board on 16 Sep 2014. I haven't heard anything yet.

Best Regards

1) There is no normal timeframe to receive a decision or remand.

2) It will probably take anywhere from 1 - 6 months just to receive your transcribe copy of the

hearing.

3) In speculation, my guess is you will know something more maybe around March

BUT . . .

it is normal this time of year, for them to try and clean out the numbers that they can

quickly

SO . . .

this might work out in your favor, time wise.

For now, try to find a hobby and stay busy and occupied.

Good luck - hope you have everything needed (credible and probable evidence) to

support a grant in full.

Hang in there.

Well had my BVA VLJ hearing today at 10.30 sharp and was out in 40 min It went better than I expected. The judge was very nice, the meeting was informal causal. My VASO rep came with me not that I needed him but to my surprise he was well prepared and spoke in my behalf and was quite knowledgeable about my case. The judge ask many question of me none that were not answered in my file. She took all my new evidence and had it entered electronically into my file so she could have her staff attorney go over my appeal and verify all my sworn statements. So much ez than a C&P your talking to a person who understands the Vet and is there to help him. Not much more to say now the waiting begins. She told me she could not tell me the out come of our meeting but that I would get a written statement with her judgment, and before I forget she also said she could not tell me how long it may take for me to get an answer about my appeal. All in all it went very good . Just have the right evidence and be carful with IMO because she mentioned that Vets not all, but some are paying doctors to fill out false IMO. well hope this helps lets see what happens will let you all know how long it takes to get denied or approved.

I have been waiting since 2009 to finally get this opportunity to meet a BVA Traveling Board Judge. The DAV represented me and help me prepare for the board. I believed all of my contentions are solid and will be rated higher but you never know what the outcome will be...I’m hoping for the best results. Our session lasted about 40 minutes and was recorded. I'm currently rated at 90% and have enough solid service-connected evidence to get higher rating. In regards to one of my contentions, I'm rated at 20% for Diabetes and hope to get that increased to at least 60%. I provided a doctor's note for regulation of activities and medical records of four consecutive years of hospital stays for diabetic complications. That should take my over 100%.

Best Regards

Chiefhouse
