Authorized At Amc


Gardener

Question

I was informed by the 800 number people that my favorable BVA decision has been authorized this month (12th). Also, I received a letter from the DAV informing me that they reviewed the AMC decision and that I would be receiving an award letter.

Question: Does anyone have any experience with this. After authorization, how long should I expect to wait for the "official" award letter from the AMC? 1 month, 2 months, somewhere in between?

Appreciate any help you can provide.

I don't think anyone here has a crystal ball inside of the VA Gardener!!! I wish we did!! But I think the best answer you will get is it should not be very long at all now!! Congrats

It still may have to be sent back to your home RO. Why not ask the 800 number or your DAV

Thanks for the quick responses!

I called the 800 number and was told it was authorized on July 12. Also talked with the local DAV (after receiving a letter from the DAV in Washington in June) and was told probably should receive the retro at the end of this month (keeping fingers crossed). I also believe that the award letter will come directly from the AMC and not the home RO (my RO said they were not involved with this claim).

I just wanted to see if anyone had any personal experience and could give me a timeline of what they experienced after being told their claim was authorized at the AMC.

Thanks for the congrats Chu Lai69.

Gardner,this is my my experience with The BVA.I help this veteran get service connected for ptsd,after he had been denied two times,it was send to the BVA in Washington DC and approved September 2005.BVA dont rate,and it was send back to the regional office for a rating and it was December 2005 when when award letter was received,but this a regional office that have a lot of backlogged claims,so it all depends how backlogged the claims is at your regional office,so dont worry (RIGHT) lay back and relax,you will get it. Hope this helps!

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
