Welcome to Hadit. It is a good sign after the C&P a decision is usually made in 2 to 4 months.

Hard to determine here if you will come under the new PTSD regs or the older ones.

The new PTSD reg criteria is in our PTSD forum.

That is an extraordinary C & P wait time -even for the VA. I assume there is more to this -

Have you been fully able to prove your stressor when they asked for that info?

Welcome,

To me this sounds a bit unusual, only because the VA usually is the one to schedule the C&P exam and

then they notify the claimant that the exam has been scheduled.

Just finally getting a C&P - is a good thing.

It doesn't seem to be that unusual to me, but I don't know if it's different VARO handling things differently. I did not get sent for mine until over four years had passed from the date of my claim. Then, I never did receive the letter for the actual exam. VARO notified me by mail to expect the appointment, but that it would come directly from my local VAMC. That was in Dec., 2009. The appointment never arrived. But, after a couple of weeks, I kept calling the local automated appointment line, until I hit pay dirt. On one of my inquiring calls, an appointment was listed for me at the VAMC for Feb., 2010, but it did not note what it was for. So, I called the VAMC, learned the appointment was for a C&P. At that point, I requested for a letter, anyways, but I never did get such a letter. It's a good thing I had the insight to keep at it, until I found the listed appointment, or I'd never have known it had been scheduled by the C&P department at the VAMC. So, it's great that this veteran has the letter and can call for the scheduling. My letter didn't say for me to call for scheduling, but that I would be receiving my appointment through the mail from VAMC which never did arrive. Best of luck with the claim to this veteran!

    • 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:
