Question

I retired from the Army on 31 Oct 2010 and I completed my C&P exam back in July. I know they just started working on my claim on 01 Nov however my question is how long does it usually take to get a rating. I filed more than 30 claims so I know the time may be a bit longer than normal.

30 Claims..... (WOW)

Talk about dropping the hammer on them.

I cannot contemplate a time line.

Since you had your C and P exam, I think it will be fairly soon but that is a whole lot of information to adjudicate.

Good Luck

30 claims is going to take the VA a while. I bet you get many deferred decisions and 0% ratings. Just be sure to keep your appeals active for as long as it takes. You are in it for the long haul. Did you get medical retirement from military?

When you got your VCAA letter did it list each and every disability you are claiming? If you get a decision consider any claim not denied,deferred or approved to have been denied. You should file a NOD on all the issues no matter what rating you get. When you claim a condition you have to have a clear diagnosis for it. Back pain is not a diagnosis. Just keep all these things on appeal while you learn the ins and outs of this system. You are in the world of the VA now and there is no timeline. The VA is immortal and you and I are not.

Brother you can go to the schedule for rating disabilities and check each condition as long as you know the criteria and where your disabilities are located within the schedule. I know the OSA will be 50 percent disabling according to the regs. ( CPAP)

TITLE 38 CFR PART 4.

Vet 2010,

I believe you have 17 issues listed above, and state they have all been service connected.

So what is it - has one issue been granted at 10% as shown in your profile and the other 16

have been granted SC at zero percent ?

Am I understanding this correctly or are you saying you feel the other 16 issues

will be granted service connection in the future ?

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a 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 first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
