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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Dro Timeline For Completion

Question

Does anyone know in a denovo case what the average time span is from the time your case is handed to the DRO for final decision to when he submits it for rating? All things being equal and provided there is no further cause for delay such as evidence gathering, C&P results etc. Is it a mater of days/ weeks or months? Thanks in advance folks.

Well it will depend on your RO.

It will also depend on:

Whether they actually do the C&P they requested right.

Whether they did all the C&P's that were requested.

How long the two previous listed delays, will delay things, will depend on whether anyone looked at the afore mentioned C&Ps. I had a C&P in June 2011 and they decided it wasn't sufficient in July 2012.

Did you request a DRO hearing? if you did, they won't move forward until someone types up a transcript of the hearing (usually wrong).

Another thing that causes long delays, is when the DRO decides something isn't right and he sends it back to development. The workload on the development people will determine if the correcting action (new C&P, Med Opinion, ect) is requested in 60 days or 90 days or just isn't requested at all.

You might want to figure out a scheme to win the powerball lottery, I think that would be a more successful endeavor than trying to figure out when VA will do anything.

Best regards,

71M10, appreciate your prompt response. And your right about the difficulty in predicting outcomes when it comes to the DRO.

There are no timeframes or average answers that I would count on.

It's all a waiting game.

You can easily be waiting anywhere from 6 months to a couple of years.

Thanks Carlie, I asked your opinion on senatorial intervention as well and was hoping you could consider my issues and let me know what you think. I think it's on the "ask a senator" topic page. Thanks in advance.

    • 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.
