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,,

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
