Single Status Update
I had posted a question about an appeal that I had where the Veterans Lawl Judge had retired. I did not request a new hearing on the advice of my Advocate the VFW. I finally received a decision and have that enclosed it here.
The VA has agreed to grant me service connection for my lower back and to send into remand the issue of my left foot neuroma.
I spoke with my advocate and he told me that I will be awarded 10% effective to January 2005. He also told me that I would have to get another C&P exam for my left foot.
I called the entertainment line at the VA (800-827-1000) to find out when this decision by the Seattle VA would be "all" finished. They told me it could take anywhere from a few months to five years as they are so behind. This has been going on now for 12 years!
Does anyone know how to get this expedited? What might realistically expect? Thank You in advance!
