Most of the time you get an answer after C&P in 60 to 120 days. It can be longer or shorter but that seems to be the ballpark for many.

Good Luck

If you can't work you should ask for TDIU and if you have not done it apply for Social Security if you are not working.

ryd,

You more likely than not have a 6-12 wait ahead of you prior to getting any answer

on your claim for PTSD.

This is ir-regardless of whether the claim will be granted or denied and of corse

it could be a bit sooner or even longer than my wag.

Extremely long periods of waiting are quite normal in VBA claims adjudication.

If you request a copy of te C & results , that will give you a heads up[ on what to expect.

Although you are a Vietnam vet they will prpobably use the new PTSD criteria for your claim (it is in our PTSD forum here)

Unlike prior gclaims under the old PTSD regs, the new regs require a {PTSD diagnosis from a VA MH provider and the VA wont accept an IMO from a non VA mental health doctor).

That highly unfair part of the new PTSD regs is being challenged in court.

thanks for input, i applied for SSDI soon after i made ptsd application, and SS approved me for SSDI on first go round.. but from most of what i read here, are leaning towards the V.A. not looking at that aspect of my claim..thanks again. i will keep on truckin as the saying goes. Hell i waited 40 plus years to apply i guess another few months or so..:) i guess ignorance is bliss..no knowing why i had some of the issues i had , untill a phys. told me i had ptsd...thanks again..ryd..:)

Do i need to file a seperate claim for TDIU? or will this be picked up automatically if i get my PTSD claim approved, ? possibly seeing SSDI approval may help? thanks again,,

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
