Start To Finish In 3 Months? Anxious Like Most

Rate this question



New poster.Frequent reader. I filed my claim for increases for the first time on may 22nd,2014. I just checked EBENES and I am in preparation for notification stage. I got out in 2009. This 3 month turn around seems incredibly fast. I am not trying to rub this in by any means, and I feel for my fellow vets that wait long waits.

I am curious as to if anyone else had a similar timeline? What was the outcome? I requested increases for 5 things and filed new claims for one(mental health/ptsd referred by doc). ANY INSIGHT at all will help to quell my anxiety and curiosity. Thank you.

Sounds good. Wish they all could be completed that fast.

Congrats on the fast movement. How many and what conditions did you file for? That has a lot to do with the timeline, as most ROs are averaging around a year for FDC claims. My last claim was completed in less than 7 months, and that was for 5 or 6 conditions, and now I have a current FDC for 7 or 8 conditions that I filed in June 14. Good luck and keep us posted.

I had a total of six things. Five increases and 1 new. None that would be IU which are the only thing I've seen move that fast.

Also I read that someone's moved this fast and then had two denied and three moved to administrative review. Of course I'll know soon enough. And hey one less claim means were all that much closer to getting what we deserve.
