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,,

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
