Appealed Mar. 01. Appeal granted April, 03. RO grants May, 05..appealed again..etc...total time is what counts..NOT till first decision)

ro oakland 9 months for 50%. then appealed denied 2 times for increase by oakland then i moved and appeal moved to reno ro. approved by reno in 1 year. total time was almost 3 years from oakland to reno. so 3 years from 0% to 100%. but I had appealed my claim. and was denied twice for increase. It would have been shorter if I had found hadit.com sooner.

Thanks cowgirl, and, yes, I will share the data as it comes in. Yes, it is different from the other claim time waiting poll as it includes the Regional Office, and the time includes appeals and multiple RO decisions that are sometimes required. As many of us found out the hard way, the first regional office decision doesnt always mean all that much. Please ask others to respond so you can see how your Regional Office compares.

    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.
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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
