    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    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

How Long Is It Taking?



Does anyone know how long the claims process is taking? I heard that after all the VA problems the goal is to have claims complete in less than 120 days starting (2015).

Has anyone gone through the Salt Lake City VA and what has been your timeline? I'm over 90 days so I am hopeful to hear from them.

I haven't heard anything about the quick timeline, but my current claim is at 5 months, so at 90 days, most Vets have not even had C&Ps, yet alone complete. It just depends on what conditions you are claiming, type of claim, and as far as Utah RO, you live in one of the better states as far as claim timelines go. Good luck, hang in there, and God Bless!!!

It is a long process and even longer if you appeal.

I would study the process and perfect your claim with good medical evidence.

Never give up

I just got C&Ps scheduled for next week, so when getting the appointment scheduled, a person from C&P said that the Salt Lake City VA has a goal to have claims completed within a 120 day deadline (provided there is not many contentions and the evidence is correct). She told me that the VA Secretary wanted a quick claims process in place by 2015. So this may be true and I will keep all of you posted. I did not believe it but we will see what happens. 120 day mark is April 12, 2015.

you have went three years without a C&P?

I had a PTSD Claim go through the Salt Lake City RO in 90 days  filed on 10- 2 -2015 and was completed on Feb 5th 2016

Now the New Claims intake Centers are shuffling our claims for faster decisions...my RO is in Waco Tx...I recieved my official decision packet from  The Claims Intake Center  from Janesville Wi

I did have a QTC  C&P in Texas...so we never know what the VA is up to.
