Another Timeline (Indy Varo)


Thought I would add my timeline to the discussion. Elapsed time, so far: 802 days.

Indy VARO timeline (Initial Claim):


Claim Filed

8/16 – 8/31/2010

Under Review

8/31/2010 – 10/12/2012

Gathering of Evidence

10/12 – 10/17/2012

Preparation for Decision

10/17 – 10/19/2012

Pending Decision Approval


Call from VARO, informed rating of 70% with one item deferred, and backdated

to 7/18/2010 (day after separation). Caller stated that retro payments over $25k

required additional review, and verified dependent and direct deposit info.


Received informal letter from DAV stating same info as discussed

during VARO call.


Returned to Pending Decision Approval

I had been used to it setting in the gathering dust stage for so long, it surprised me when there was movement. I didn't let myself get excited about it, at first. Then I got my hopes up when the VA lady called me last Friday and the letter followed from DAV Monday. Although I knew it was normal for claims to go back and forth online, it was still a big disappointment to see it happen.

Pending Decision approval is the signature phase of the claim by the VSCM,

Depending on the ampount of retro, the number of signatures is different. I thinkl it requires 2 for 25K.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
