I sent the request by certified registered mail with return signature 60 days ago. So is this a typical response from VA?

Yes very, I had to write my congressman to request a copy. I put in a request had written at the VARO and 8 months later no C-file. I wrote my congressman along with the copy of thing I had requested and he wrote them and and I had a copy in 3 weeks from the day I wrote him, you have to stay on them if you lax so will they, not all the time but most of the time...Yog

I don't know if you have to use FOIA for this or not. Under FOIA there is a time limit. My congressman helped me get mine. It took a few weeks with his help.

A vet does not need to cite FOIA or anything else in order to request and obtain their med recs.

Sometimes a request for recs under FOIA goes to a FOIA officer and this adds more time to the request.

Then again,I myself started citing FOIA and Privacy Act 5, USC, 552 for stuff- as -after many years of no problems getting records, the local VA FOIA officer suddenly gave me some crap about getting them a few years ago.

I took that to another level and got a letter of apology from her.and the records.

I just remembered -VA has a check from me for a new copy of ,my husband's med recs (first copy always is free)but then when the claim went to the AMC I withdrew the request as I didnt want the file back at the RO for the copying.

IRIS accepted my withdrawal of the request and said I would get the check back.I never did.

Geez.
