  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

C&p Exams Completed

Question

Hello All,

I had three (3) C&P exams on June 30th and after my exams were complete the doctor told me I should receive a letter showing the results in a couple weeks. Let's see; June 30th to August 17th. That's about 48 days I think. That's a couple of weeks, isn't it?

I was just wondering if anyone could give me a close picture on how long it takes to get the results back from the VA. I was told that one of my claims was sent to the review board but they wouldn't tell me which one it was. I asked my VSO and he said to just sit back and wait. Is that the best advice? Wait?????

Who did the C&P exams? If the VA did them you might get copies from the VAMC where the exams were done. You go to Release of Medical Records. If QTC did them you have to get them from the VARO. I would call or visit and push them. The VSO does not care since it is not his claim. He is too busy eating lunch to care or on break. The only good VSO is our own Larry. We need to clone him.

John,

I had my exams done at a VAMC. I was browsing thru one of my VET magazines last night and it said in an article that it normally takes 140 + days, or longer, to receive anything back from the VA with the backlog they have.

Guess I'll just continue to wait.

Sgt,

Ditto on John's post.

I would go to the ROI office at your VAMC and get a copy of each C&P exam.

They should be available within about 1 week after the exam's take place,

since they were done at a VAMC.

The doctor has absolutely no idea or anything at all related to how long or when a Rating Decision

will be promulgated.

My guess is you might receive a Rating Decision somewhere between 3 - 12 months after your C&P's.

Yes, at this point the VSO is correct, except for getting copies of the C&P's, it's a waiting game for you now.

My only other suggestion at this point is for you to NOT continue to submit any additional evidence

or claims at this time - let this get completed first or you will go into a claims tornado.

Carlie,

Thank you for your information and suggestions. I'll just sit back and let the system do its work and hope that it comes sooner than later. One of my exams was for IHD so I know it will be a while before I hear anything on that.

    • VA Law
      Everything Veterans Affairs does with your service connected disability compensation claim, is governed by law. You may want to bookmark this page as a reference as you proceed with your claim.

      It can be a bit daunting. Just remember the U.S.C. is the law, the C.F.R. is how they interpret the law and last but certainly not least is the V.A. adjudication manuals that is how they apply the law. The section of the law that covers the veterans benefits is Title 38 in the U.S.C. in the C.F.R. is usually written 38 C.F.R. or something similar.

       










      U.S.C. United States Code United States Code is the law and the U.S.C. is the governments official copy of the code.


      U.S.C.A. United States Code Annotated U.S.C.A. contain everything that is printed in the official U.S. Code but also include annotations to case law relevant to the particular statute.


      C.F.R. Code of Federal Regulations The C.F.R. is the interpretation of the law


      VA M-21 Compensation and Pension Manual


      VA M-21-4 C & P Procedures


      VA M28-3 Vocational Rehabilitation


      VA M29-1 VBA Insurance Manual

    • Rating "Protections"
      The VA has several regulations governing various levels of "protection". The terms "permanent", "protection", and "total" are misnomers due to the various ways the VA has defined them.

      Here is some information on VA ratings protection (but the word "protection" has a different meaning to the VA). The exception to these rules is if they can prove fraud.

      5 years

      The key part to remember about the 5 year rule is found 3.327(a) indicating that these are guidelines which are not necessarily set in stone. The key takeaway for most veterans is reduction should not occur if there has not been material improvement over 5+ years or if the veteran is over the age of 55.

       

      10 years

      In brief, ratings in effect for 10 years cannot have service connection severed.

       

      20 years

      In brief, a disability rated for 20 years cannot be reduced below the lowest rating percentage it has held for the previous 20 years.

       

      P&T

       

      TDIU

       

       

       

      Disclaimer: I am not a legal expert, so use at own risk and/or consult a professional representative. The VA updates their regulations from time to time, so this information may become outdated.
