Fast Bva Action?

Question

Read a lot on some of the VA sites and BVA stuff seems to go real slow. Dosen't this seem really fast to go from SOC, VA From 9 to BVA & back or am I missing something??

Caption says they mailed me and my VSO the decision, but I have not received anything...

Excerpts from Ebenifits:

  • Power of Attorney: D - DAV
  • Current Progress: Decision & Claims File Dispatch
  • Current Progress Description: Your case has been received at BVA, and BVA has mailed your decision to you (and your representative, if any) and will be returning your claims file to the VA Medical Center. Please note that transit times vary, and there may be some lag time between when BVA forwards your claims file to its appropriate location and when that location receives it.

Date of Progress Progress Progress Office

2/15/2011 Local VA Office Decision RO

4/22/2011 NOD RO

4/29/2011 Appeal Pending BVA

9/14/2012 SOC RO

12/01/2012 Decision & Claims File Dispatch BVA

Yes, in my opinion - it is way too fast and not possible, that is unless there were no

appellants in line in front of you

OR

your claim was expedited for some reason

with no other expedited claims in line, in front of you.

Heck - most of the appellants can only dream of a timeline like this one.

Normal is 3 - 5 years, from what I've seen.

I am guessing but I think (emphasis on think) the RO may have decided in your favor. If that were the case you would show a BVA decision since an appeal existed and has to be closed. That happened to me in the end. I could be wrong. Again, check Letter Generator and see if there are any changes

Actually this doesn't look good.

Nowhere do I see a form 9 listed in this correspondence listing. The December decision looks suspiciously like appeal closed due to no form 9. This is the exact wording they used on an appeal I dropped after the SOC was issued (with partial award).

Do you have a return receipt from the mailing of the form 9, that proves they signed for it?

Best regards,

    • 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.
