Award Letter Time Frame

Question

Just wondering how long does it normally take for the award letter to be mailed. I received my award last week and the VARO is less than 5 miles away from my home.

Most importantly, I have received the funds but I still want to see the basis for their decision.

Can I get a copy if I just go to the VARO?

If the RO is that close, going might produce results. Others here said they have asked for it to be faxed to them.

The last award I had was earlier this year. I saw the deposit one day and got the award letter in the mail the next day.

Congrats on your win!

What the heck is " receipt of information confirming entitlement"?

Excerpts

All VA Regional Offices Training Letter 10-04 June 14, 2010

The timing of payments is governed by court order. Payment is required to be

received within twenty-one days of receipt of information confirming entitlement (the

twenty-one day period begins once the whereabouts of a class member is

known).
