Please Help Explain These 2 Iris Responses



I really wish I would have found this site prior to going for my C&P exam. Anyway, I have submitted 2 IRIS in the past few months and these are the two responses I have received. I am correct in that it is my understanding that my file is sitting in a pile waiting for a rater to review it? Any help in terms of the next step and about how long it could take from until I receive a decision would be greatly appreciated. My claim is being processed through the Detroit, MI location. Thanks!

1. Your claim was sent to the rating board on May 20, 2009. The results of your examinations were recorded on your claim and your claim was sent to the rating board.

2. We show that as of June 8, 2009 your claim is ready for a decision. We are unable to give you a timeline when the rater will review your file as we do not know their caseload.

Basically they said all they knew.

Have you obtained a copy of the actual C & P result from the VAMC where it was done?

You need to request C & Ps by mail through their records access officer.

The actual exam will show what you can expect.

Did you establish an inservice nexus or link to what you filed claim for?

Were you able to provide VA with all evuidence they requested in their VCAA letter to you?

Since there is no timeline that the VA must follow when processing claims...the only answer is "it depends".

Sounds like a rater has your file and will render a decision whenever he/she gets around to it, and that depends on case load which varies by VARO. Maybe fewer vets filing claims at your VARO (as compared to say, VA with a boatload of vets), but probably few ROs as well.

But, to put it in perspective. I filed new claims and for reconsideration on a couple of issues in Nov 2008. The rating decision was dated 2 April 2009. Then in uncharacteristic speed, they took only 2 months to reprocess the reconsideration of one of the issues from the Nov claim--the VA had ordered a QTC C&P exam, but I was never notified. A new C&P was scheduled for 11 May (some of that delay was at my request) and the rating decision was dated 4 June.

Hope that helps....

I have heard that Detroid does not hold the speed record for decisions. However, who knows if you will be an exception. If they are ready to make a decision by June 8th 2009 then they are flying. Maybe your rating will come soon. Do you have a veteran's service organization working for you? They will often know before you get the letter. You might call them and find out what is happening. Do what Berta says also about the C&P exam. You can usually tell from the C&P what kind of rating you will get in a ballpark sort of way. Post your C&P on here (take out your name, SS# and private stuff and just post the facts) and we can probably take a good guess at how you did at the exam.
