Timeline For Fully Developed Claim

Question

On a seperate paper i requested an smc s award. I am already rated 90% with tdiu and p&t. My ratings are 60%,30%,30%.20%,10%,and 10%.If my IHD is rerated at !00%, hopefully i'll qualify for the smc award. What is the usual time frame to have a FDC claim done. I have heard they would be expedited..

I submitted a FDC back in September and it has not moved at all. My VSO says that most claims should average about 6 months, but I am skeptic.

Navy,

Have you had any motion on your FDC yet? I noticed the date as I recently submitted a FDC online - just curious.

I had my C&Ps in Feb 14, which was fast, but claim still at gathering of evidence. So frustrating, because looking at my C&P reports I should be 100% when claim is done. Drives me crazy, my SSDI claim was just approved in less than 3 months. I hope all our claims start moving soon now that winter is coming to an end.

I put in my first time FDC on 30 Sept 2013. Finished my C&P exams on 17 Dec 2013 per E benefits, stiil in gathering of dust on e benefits, who updates that anyway it is never up to date trust me just like everyone else the VA says use E Benefits i say to the V A keep it updated it would cut down on phone calls to the 1800 number . My VSO tells me 3 to 4 months after all C&P exams are complete claim should be closed it is geting close to 4 months, After 4 months passes he will more then likely then not say 5 to 6 months to close the claim which will be more in the ballpark for the claim to close after C&P exams are complete. No worries i know claims take a while i told the wife the VA is waiting Till after the World series to finish before closing my claim. ( MLB opening day is 31 March so i watch spring training baseball on MLB TV to keep me busy cant wait to the Reg season to start.

The best advice i have on the VA 125 day goal is to complete a claim is after all C&P exams are complete within 125 days claim can be closed. Sorry guys just my wishfull thinking is all. Thank you all.

God Bless

Charles

My VA counselor submitted his claim for IHD as a fully developed claim and had a decision in less than 4 months, of 100%, w/P&T and he then took medical retirement.

    • 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.
