What Does "review" Mean?

Question

I recently called my RO and they told me that my case will go under "review" in 10 days. What does under review mean? Is there a set timeline for thing as such? How come when I call the 800 number they say still in development, but I caught one of the representative that knew what they were doin, and they told me "Your c-file goes under review in 10 days"?????

In this Crazy World!?!?!??

air,

Welcome to Hadit.

VA 101 - The VA 800 number can not provide accurate information

on the status of claims that are pending.

VA has no set timelimits on them - telling you ten days is basically

just getting you off the phone.

Only VA claimant's have timelimits to meet.

The 800 # can only take a wild guess as to the status of your claim

950 out of a thousand guesses, are more likely than not, incorrect.

jmho,

carlie

What Carlie just said.

And, when they said your c-file "goes under review in 10 days", what they meant was that your c-file "goes under the stack of claims to be reviewed"......that's under the stack of the OTHER 2,314, + or - , claims that are sitting on top of yours...............................just sayin'.

never, ever, let 'em see you sweat..........'cause, if you do, then they think they've beaten you..........never, ever, give 'em that satisfaction, NEVER!

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
