  1. This may seem like an odd question, but for those who recently (meaning last 3-6 months) got a positive decision on their claim and got their BBE. Did they literally get a Big Brown Envelope, or has it changed to a White one? and how long before you got the envelope. Here is why I ask. With my original rating I got the literal BBE. it had lots and lots of paperwork in it. I wish I had it at my fingertips, but it is storage on the other side of the country. Jump forward to 2018 and on 8/24 the VA rated me at 100% PTSD P&T after a C&P review, which is a jump. Around 8/31 I called Peggy and they said my decision had been mailed. On 9/6 I got a white envelope with 3 packets of papers. 6 pages of benefits, 3 pages of how to appeal, all white pages and forms, and a two page letter listing the conditions noted in the review C&P. nothing else. The packet says that in 7-10 days I should get paid, which would be back pay to the Sept 1 Effective Date. Today is 9/22 and I still have not been paid the back pay and I still have not received a literal BBE. I suspect/hope to receive the new pay level on the Oct check and I hope to get that months back pay then too, what I don't know is if I should still be looking for that literal Big Brown Envelope or if it has changed format. Could my region, now seattle, use a different format? any insight would be helpful. I have enough real problems to worry about so I would like to be able to get this issue out of my thoughts. Thanks
  2. Hey All, Hope all is well. Quick question: I found out thru the RO my BBE was sent 22 DEC, hmmmm, nothing yet. I know it takes 7-10 days but this is weird. Should I call the RO on Monday or the Peggy # if not in mail tomorrow? Thank you.
  3. So the VA completed my claim and increased my compensation. There is one problem, there are many conditions that disappeared from the original claim that are all over my service records. Also received retro, but not nearly what I have calculated. Any ideas? Increased from 20% --> 50%. Many things were rated as non-service connected even though they are clearly indicated in my records and the initial injuries happened on Active Duty. I'm just trying to wrap my head around this all.
  4. It's now been over two seeks since my claim was decided, can anyone tell me how long you had to wait for your award letter, big brown envelope, etc.? Thank you!
