Time To Pay Up On Those Bets!

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




Well those of you who read my challenge and placed a bet need to send me your checks now.

The old Iris Inquiry reply from my RO last Monday which said "a decision will be made on your claim within the next four days" did not come true. It is now 8 days later and no update in the ole computer system according to the call centers in LA, St. Louis and Nashville.

In my last post, which I could not find for some reason, I told you guys no way would they live up to their promise but some of you placed your money on the VA. So now its time to pay up, I gotta make a car payment this Thursday.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I love all of you guys and gals!!!! Good night to all

Ricky: Your the one who is so sinical about the VA. Not that it is so, but maybe a decision has been made, it maybe that, (1) It is still sitting on the Raters desk and hasn't been sent to be typed up, (2)It hasn't been typed up yet and sent on for signatures (3) It hasn't been signed yet by everyone, (4) The last one to sign off on it may be on vacation and no one is authorized in his absence to sign in his stead. (5) finaly but not limited to all theses things, it is waiting to be put in the computor with all the many other claims, or (6) It may be a race between when it gets put in the computor and the mail room gets around to mailing the decision to you.

Heck, you could be waiting another year for all these things to happen and your claim has already been decided upon. Not that it is so or that it will take that long, but hay! we're talking about the VA here aren't we? LoL :lol: <_< <_< :P <_<

Thank your lucky stars your waiting a bit for your decision. Mine came 17 days from the date of my C&P exam and the date the decision was made and eight months later when the decision was signed and they notified me. The only problem was, according to regulations at the time, if a diagnosis change was considered which would result in an advers decision, besides the Rater determining it was continplated, he was suppose to send it to the Central Office for their approval; I didn't get such notification.

Some say this wasn't necessary or a violation of my due process rights, or that it was an issue of CUE. But hey, your worried about about a quick decision. be my guest and call in your bets. you may need it when the decision isn't at all what you had hoped for or that you personally expected.

What's the old saying, He who laughs loudest, is the last one found laughing.

Not ment to be argumentative or start a debate, just trying to say, don't tempt the powers that be, what ever your persuasion, or whom ever they may be.

The check is in the mail. :P



I wouldn't call a decision made more than 700 days after the DRO looked at the claim "quick" or that the claimant was "worried". The VA offered the four-day information.

Rock hound you said: But hey, your worried about about a quick decision. be my guest and call in your bets. you may need it when the decision isn't at all what you had hoped for or that you personally expected.

Jim I would not say that a decision that has been in the process for almost 5 years now is quick and all of the ones made so far have not been anywhere close to what I thought they should have been so I do not expect this one to be any different. Just want the decision so we can move on through the maze.

Nope buddy not cynical of the VA at all for I am the one who will take their side when they attempt to do what is right and what is right is based upon the laws that govern them!!!!

No argument taken - this post is just a follow-on to a quirky one I posted last week. Guess I will be the last one laughing for as the Hadit clown I always laugh the loudest hahahahahahahhahahaha - good luck with your claim my friend.

Did I place a bet? Are you keeping up with us?


Betty let me check my books. I think that since the VA has been so nice to you during the past years you kinda leaned towards their favor. If that is the case you will owe me any and all back pay you receive during the next 10 years!!!! hahahahahahahahaha

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.




    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • 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.

    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
