  1. How long did it take to get in front of the judge? Mine was filed 12/2019 and still says waiting for judge assignment.
  2. Thanks for the info. I hope it happens soon. At 70 I'm trying to raise 3 grandkids and the extra money would help a lot.
  3. Thank you for the response. No, not an increase, original claim. Shot down, partly claiming I was crazy before I enlisted. Appealed to board. Thank you.
  4. Thank you for the response. VA has been treating me for a few years now so the records(going back to '75) of that is there. The in-service event happened and the VA docs tied it to my current issues. Guess all I can do is wait and hope. Again, thank you for the response.
  5. Are C&P exams always ordered? At what point are they ordered? I filed an appeal to the board Dec 2019, AMA, evidence. Still waiting for it to be assigned to a judge. I submitted a nexus letter from my VA psy doc at the time of filing appeal. Are C&P exams always ordered? Or will they bypass since both my VA psy docs have nexus stated in file, plus the letter from one? Thank you. Gene
  6. Houston VA tells me they are only giving it to cancer patients and over 75.
  7. Thank you for responding. Yes, it was my 2 MH docs who dx this in my file a few years ago along with MDD, GAD, etc. And it was one of the MH docs who wrote the letter for me. I got lucky he would write it but I think him being AF reserve with lots of PTSD experience treating it while active, many months of weekly and biweekly appointments, he felt it was right to write the letter-and he stated so in letter. Now, if I can keep my patience intact...
  8. I don't mean to hijack this but my question fits the question. Broncovet: If the VA only accepts VA docs on PTSD, is it safe to think that a BVA judge will look favorably on an appeal if VA docs not only say PTSD but also write a letter stating this, provides a nexus statement and state "more likely than not SC"? Thank you for your response.
