Most likely within the next 2 - 4 weeks but as many have said, check the bank account, your decision could show up as a deposit in your account before you receive the hard copy decision in the mail.

Good Luck ...

I stopped working in June 2006, because of my medical condition...did not apply for medical retirement, I had worked for a total of 37 years (2 years Air Force, 18 years VA Medical Center Portland,Or, 9 years Kaiser, 8 years Postal Service)....sold house and moved to the beach. I am currently 70% SC (60% Aortic Stenosis, Pulmonary Hypertension....and 30% Depression, anxiety, insomnia)...I have applied for 100%, or Permanent and Total.....have been denied, am appealing decision as we speak. It has now been 28 months, they have received all the information necessary, including information from Social Security....so wait I shall. Please note that I finally applied for SSD in June of 2009 (it took my husband to call and set up appointment for me to apply). I took a copy of my C File (any of you that haven't requested...please do so. You never know what information you may find there in black and white, that you didn't know). They made copies of everything I gave them, and returned my originals to me in about 20 minutes. ANYWAY....it took the Social Security Administration 7 months to approve my claim, and apologies from two of them on their delay....paid me backpay for a year from the time I applied, but rated me disabled from the time I left work in 2006. Now, I get all my medical care from the VA (except for dental), and still request a copy of the medical records after every appointment, test, or procedure. People may complain about Social Security Administration, but I found them very helpful, and efficient in my dealings with them. I am having a problem with ebenefits, but called VARO today and will be sent a new Activation Code.

Check the letters section to see the increase on E-Benefits , they usually update the letters when claim is completed!

One thing you can do if you have an SO working for you is give him/her a shout to see if they heard anything yet cause they usually get notified before the vet does. They can also make a phone call in hopes of hearing something.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!
    • Hello:

      If you receive a hysterectomy while you are filing for disability through the VA, will it still count?

      I am out of the military.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
