Dav In D.c./claim Remand/how Much Longer?

Question

My BVA claim was remanded to my regional office in St. Pete, Florida. There, they denied my claim for Fibro(Diagnosed and confirm) and High blood pressure (Diagnosed and confirm) even though, I am a gulf war vet that served in the Asian pacific theater (Iraq) as well as being diagnosed with HBP within one year of leaving service and have been on medication since then.

Anyhow, on August 31 my claim arrived at the DAV up in D.C. It has been there now for 3 months and those lazy bastards have yet to get to it. I called they stated that they have between 30 to 90 days to get to it. And no doubt they are taking the FULL 90 days.

I have questions for those who have been in my same situation

1. How long did it take after they got to your claim was it completed to be sent to the Judge? 6 months, 10 months, 4 years?

2. How long after that did it take the judge to complete your claim? 1 year, 2 years, or 4 years.

After 10 years of dealing with the VA my patience is running thin.

Thank you in advance.

I hate you are going through this.

You are at the mercy of the DAV. You should have gotton an attorney as they can usually skip the waiting step and save you a few months.

There are no time frames for them to respond within.

The BVA will take action on the oldest claims they have, first

and work them in that order.

I would describe the DAV as worthless from my own personal experience.

    • 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.
