Call the VARO and ask what records they're waiting for.

If it's from a medical facility, you can often speed up the caim by several months by getting those records and mailing them in yourself.

The VA DRO waited nearly 16 months trying to get my SSA records. I finally contacted them myself and found out they were destroyed. A letter from them stating so got my claim out of a lengthy stall.

The DRO said he was willing to wait years until he got the SSA records. My claim sat on his desk four years before going to BVA.

Never expect these delays to be short delays. They will stall them as long as they can. Do what you can yourself to keep it moving.

Make sure you have plenty of evidence they can't get around.
