    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. Knowledgeable 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 massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”

    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


SolInvictus

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,

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.
