Fdc Filed, But I Am Hearing Conflicting Info



I retired 1 August.

MY FDC was received by VA 8 August.

My county VSO told me that here in South Dakota, FDC are being finished within 106 days.

SO, I am on vacation, and waiting for a call for a C+P.

I called Hot Springs, which is where they said my C+P would be conducted, and they told me they have NOTHING on me.

So, I called and talked to h State VSO, and she told me it would be a LONG,LONG time before all is said and done, and that my C+P's could be out as far as January or February !!

Lastly, I go on to e-benefits, and my claim is under "gathering evidence". Why would they need to gather evidence, if I sent in a FULLY DEVELOPED claim ???? 10 items, and every single one is plain as day in my Military medical records

If I don't get a C+P before January, I think I may have to get a congressman involved.

Don't get upset by what you see on Ebenefits. It is rarely up to date. If you filed for 10 different conditions, you may have multiple C & P exams scheduled on different dates so your claims may take longer than someone filing for 1 or 2 conditions. The 106 days finishing time quoted by your county VSO may be the average cited by the VA in South Dakota. Whether it is accurate or not is uncertain. The truth probably falls somewhere between what the county VSO told you and what the state VSO told you. Right now it us just a WAG. Depending on the complexity of your medical conditions, what you see as plain as day in your medical records may not be as clear cut to a rating official who has to determine the degree of disability of each claimed condition under the rating schedules in 38 CFR part 4. The rating officials would not be in a position to determine your ratings until they receive and review all of your C & P exam reports.

Although it is difficult, be patient for awhile. I would think your claim in South Dakota would go faster than claims in most states.

As far as contacting your congressman, some on this website will advise you that the action will actually slow your claim down. I have never requested assistance from my congressman so I am not sure.

Good luck to you and thank you for your service.
