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!

    • 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...
