Is This The Normal Process For Claims?

Recommended Posts

I had a claim that was granted service connection for Multiple Sclerosis in Jan 2012 by the BVA from an appeal since Dec 2004. In June 2012, just checked to see if anything positive was going on with the grant processing and at that time, I was told that a rating decision was completed on June 7, 2012, and just for clarification purposes I checked once again this month and was given the same information but I have not received notification or anything. I've checked Ebenefits and nothing new or different has changed with the present percentage that I'm receiving for a different condition. I have not heard anything from the pro bono law firm that is handling my claim since May 2012, and that was to send me a copy of the letter that was sent to the RO requesting a copy of the C&P exam that was completed on May 23, 2012. I'm not sure why I haven't received notification of the rating decision. Any comments or insight would be greatly appreciated. I plan to send the attorney an e-mail requesting a status update regarding my claim.

Thanks to all and have a great week,

This is one of the FEW situations in which I suggest calling the 800 #

and just kind of playing like a dummy.

I would NOT start out by stating, I'm waiting on a decision.

I'd ask what combined percentage level am I currently compensated at,

what conditions I am SC'd for - what DC's my conditions are rated under

and what percentage for each, also if they show any NSC conditions of record,

and what effective dates for each individual issue.

I would ask if they are in the process of OR have sent me any notification letters

recently and if so on what date and to what address.

Also, I'd check over my payment history section at ebenefits to see if any

changes have shown yet.

Update: I was in contact with my lawyer today and the information that he received is as follows: The grant is being finalized awaiting a third signature. Also, he stated that he was informed that I should receive the official notification in a couple of weeks. However, the individual whom he spoke with was not able to give him the rating percentage or any other details but per the attorney he will stay in touch with them on a weekly basis until everything is complete. I will definitely post again when I have more information.

  • How to get your questions answered...


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
