From my experience, you will already have had a C&P by the time your claim makes it to the Rater. unless he finds he needs additional medical information to clarify some aspect or to correct some deficit in a C&P examination.

How long it is at the Rater, depends on many factors, how many claims are on his desk waiting to be looked at, to whether he has had to call in sick or take a personal day or two for a family emergency and they don't see any reason to give his work load to some one else. I've had my claim From a C&P exam to a determination done in as little as seven months. My NSC pension claim took even less time from the date I filed and the date it was awarded was less than six months.

You could have a slam dunk claim and it could go on for a couple of years, you just can't tell with the VA, that is biggest problem with the VA today, their is no uniformity on how claims are handle and in what time frame they should be handled, even thought they have been told time and time again to try and find a way to speed things up.

Speeding things up to the VA means to deny the claim or low ball it, so it listed as a completed claim and then you have to pend the next lifetime appealing their findings only to get it remanded because they did such a poor job to begin with, all in the name of expediency.

Oh Yea! DON'T HOLD YOUR BREATH AND MAKE SURE YOUR WILL IS UP TO DATE, you could well die before your claim is decided or if decided, to your satifaction that if relates truly to the rating schedule for its severity.

  • 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.
