    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

Nod Timeline For Va To Respond

Question

Is there a timeline for VA to respond to my NOD. I filed via Certified mail and they received it on October 7, 2013. I know that VA is somewhat strict on Vets filing various claims, etc, but what about the VA time to respond?

Nope they can take as long as they want. They can even lie to you about the status with no repercussions. Heck they can even lie to a Congressman about the status free from repercussion.

I wouldn't expect to see anything until about mid January and then you will get a form letter stating they have received your NOD. If you havn't aleady told them you want a traditional appeal or DRO you will be asked to make that decision at that time.

Have any good hobbies? It is going to take a while!

It can take from a few months up to 2 years bud. God bless and wish you the best. I have a FDC and SSDI claim currently and cause of the Holidays it will delay most claims. Good luck

Guess why I am wondering is the eBenefits section has my case as listed on Appeal, when that Has not happened yet, just sent a NOD, which will lead to an appeal. Of course eBenefits and VARO do not seem to communicate or it is a one way street, VA will upload to eBennies, but not the other way. Yes, I have learned to be patient. My first claim was filed on 03, finally settled in July 07. So this claim for an increase was filed in July 12, should be settled in 2016!

Also approx. do you think I will get an answer from the vet admin. Thanks again

You have already been denied once so I would send in all the evidence I could get that will really help my case now. There is no way to tell how long the VA will take to get an answer from the VA.

    • 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.
