What does a Authorization Review, opened on 04/22/19 and closed on 04/26/19 for a claims appeal?

It has meant for me a claim decision has been made and is being authorized before release. It is not an indication of approval or denial.

I have one of those now and my claim has already been decided and awarded. My retro was split and I haven't received the majority of it but the total was >$25K. Kind of backwards if you ask me. They paid out 40% of my retro, DFAS has done the audit and I'm just waiting on the remainder. Kind of late to hit the spell check, isn't it?

Going on 2 1/2 months waiting on the remainder of retro. The audit by DFAS was completed and sent back to the VARO on 15 October.

Initial adjudication on Sept 1st with partial retro the same date. So, 6 weeks for the DFAS audit????

Did they do a bunch of backlog before the election and now that its over they're sitting on their hands again??

The way Retro works is by date received. When it goes to Dfas from the VA, they all go through in batches. And they are all sent out during a certain part of the month.

I posted this once before. The process will take months, there is no definite date it will be finished. When it goes back to the VA, it is in another holding pattern that will last a few months, almost treated like a new claim until it gets to the dept that actually verifies the audit and then sends it on to have the retro issued.

So, unfortunately it is a long, long process. You have to find another hobby until it hits the bank.

Remember, yours is not the only claim in the system. There is a wait at each station. My retro took about 4-6 months each time I went through this. I had 2 separate retro's over the years.

    • 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.

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
