Tank,

A "rating specialist" or otherwise known as a RVSR (Rating Veteran Service Representative) does exactly what the name implies, they rate claims. Their function is also the same at the Appeals Managment Center as it is at the local regional office. It all depends how backed up they are as far as how long it will take to make a decision.

Hello,

I'm still relatively new to Hadit.com, so have been busily reading as many of the posts as possible in order to educate myself on how the VA claim process works. ;)

I was able to learn enough to figure out how to submit a NOD letter/request for De Novo review by a DRO, so hopefully I'll hear back in a few months whether my appeal worked.

During my research, I kept seeing the phrase "AMC" or "Appeals Managment Center", and am curious as to what this refers to. Is this where the DROs in each region work?

The AMC or Appeals Management Center is located in Washington DC and a few years ago it was set up so the BVA could develop a claim and than move it. However, they were sued and now they are used to make a claim ready for rating and in some few cases make a decision. Usually they remand claims after some development and the BVA instructs the RO of origin how to finish the claim.

I may not be exactly right but it has more or less become another holding pen or penalty box for Veterans claims that have been awaiting a decision for a long time.

Pete,

Thanks for the quick reply. ;)

I think I understand what the AMC is now. Since I've asked for a DRO review of my denied claim, it looks like I won't have to worry about dealing with the AMC for now.
