Called the 1800 number today. Was told that I had a descion but they were waiting on someone to sign off on it. Good or bad I only filed in Feb and Had a C+P in March. I am currently rated at 0 percent. This time they sliced open my nose pretty bad. But if a descion ws made in only 4 months thats one for the record books.

Four months is pretty fast for a claim. youmust have had all the medical evidence from the get go.

The information that you recieved from the 1-800 jockey seems correct. In your case, it looks like your claim only needs the standard two signatures which shouldn't take too long at all. The third siganture is what can take a couple of weeks longer because fo the retro involved.

As far as the "rating scale" concerning your disbility, it's hard to say without knowing what the claimed disability is. i.e. something to do with the skin or actual Nasal obstruction or something along those lines. Try looking under §4.97 or §4.118. There you'll proabaly find what you're looking for.

The elusive third signature is generally done by the Veterans service Center Manager (VSCM) or thier assistant. When a claim is granted and there is over $25,000.00 involved in retro, the claim needs to be signed off from the VSCM. The VSCM isn't looking to change the actual decision or anything unless there was a CUE involved. He/she is just looking to insure the amount of money being paid is correct and everything else that was done by the Post-Determination Team was done correctly. In short the VSCM is just making sure all the "i's" are dotted and the "t's" are crossed due to the retro involved.

The third siganture may take a couple of weeks extra to be acconplished. It just depends on what the work load is of the VSCM.

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
