In most cases it will be processed fairly quickly. You might give a shout to 800 827 1000 and ask how long it takes. Back in 1992 mine went pretty quick or about a month.

Good Luck

Hello Cowgirl,

keep in mind that we are at war & there is a backlog of around 600, 000 claims.

It's been running around a year to three years turnaround time at the Appeals Center.

I would say if you hear nothing from the VA Regional Office in four months, request a local hearing at the RO.

You "may" request a local hearing during the VARO claims process at anytime, to submit & discuss in person, any evidence to clear up any issues like Dependents, elegibility, view your claims file, etc.

You will need to pay your own way, but may get some things resolved faster.

Just got mine approved but, it took like 5 months on account the RO told me that because of the other claims I filed and the one i had on dro appeal was making it go slower. If you have any other claims in at the same time it might go a bit slower. I hope you get yours sooner than I did. For me its only 28 dollars a month extra but, it helps with gas going back and forth to the VA :huh:

Well I got married in March 2006 sent in for dependents immediately and have been waiting 18 months. I've had my rating since 2000 (%100). If you sent in your info right after your rating hopefully they will process it quickly.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to 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.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
