Question

Hello everyone,

I filed a claim in July, and had my C&P in August according to ebenifits they have received all required information

and my claim is in the development phase and has been for approximately 8 months.

I have heard nothing from the VA, can anyone give me an estimate on how long it takes to move to the determination/award phase?

Should I wait or go back to the regional office here in Phoenix.

Any advise? Thank you

I would go to your VA Medical Center ROI (release of information) and get a copy of your C&P. This should tell what determination the examiner made. I got my final decision three weeks after my C&P but I think that was unusual. I had a copy of the C&P and from the doctors conclusions I was confident that my claim would be awarded and it was.

All the VARO's are different but usually you can expect a decision 60 to 120 days after your C&P. It sounds like you may need to check a little closer. Your Service Officer should be able to help you or give a gentle nudge to the VARO.

If its not to much trouble sometimes a trip to the VARO and ask them face to face. Just ask for a Councilor and than ask them.

I am more or less speaking from my personal experience in Texas.

I have had my reconsideration claim with the VAro in Phoenix since October. It went to the rating board in November where it still is in hibernation. I think when spring comes it may possible thaw out. I don't want to get your hopes up, but between what the 800# says and what Monday reports states, there doesn't look like there is an estimate when this will be done. Perhaps within 9 month at the earliest for me. I will post when it happens so everyone will get an idea whats going on. However thousands of new claims are going in monthly now. More claims are going in then are being decided. I have taken 2 vacations hoping when I got back I would have something. Keep your hopes up. These claims are just taking quite a bit longer now!

Arizona,

My guess for your situation is another 4 - 12 months before you will receive a decision.

Hang in there.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
