NPRC QUESTION/Time running out!

Rate this question

Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

When you send off for your records and your NOD is running out  and you get a letter from the NRPC stating they received  acknowledge  your application for military records dated and  on  July 15th 2015 you have been assigned a case number, in fairness to all applicants the board considers cases in order for which they are received.

Due to the volume of applications received and the complexity of many cases,it may be as long as twelve months before you receive a decision on your application .

if you submitted an  electronic application you may track the progress of your case, unfortunately  this option is not available  who submitted a hard copy application.

(I submitted a hard copy)

so now what happens? if it takes a year to get your records then your NOD runs out....your screwed.

I need those records for evidence to help me support my claim.

 

this sucks

Buck no sweat, you will have more time to submit more evidence after your SOC (Statement Of Case) is issued and when it comes time to file a form 9 if you continue your appeal to BVA.  Plus you know that it will take VA quite sometime to review your NOD.  It most likely be a year or so.  I am sitting waiting on my NOD and It has been a year and counting with no clue of when they will ever get to it.

Thanks pete992, I understand what you mean,

I suppose I could send a copy of this letter  with the SSOC,? Without those records the VA can screw me  and that's exactly what they will do  give them any chance.

Buck,

Usually the NPRC doesn't take too long to fulfill requests.  It can be delayed if they have to retrieve something from the VA or one of your military posts, but even then, I've only waited around three months or so.  They seem more effecient at records retrieval and accountability than the VA.

Oh  Okay  Good....I hope so Mark.

The only bad thing is the military post don't exist anymore  from Vietnam, from three different locations from 68/69/70  but the records should come up & exist .

Lots of RVN Records were lost for unexplained reasons & the ones that didn't need to be accounted for.

 

Thanks Buddy!

Buck, You do not need to wait until you get those records to file your NOD. You do not need to submit your evidence at the same time as your NOD, you can send in new evidence at any time and even walk the new evidence in during your hearing. You also don't need to present any specific arguments with your NOD, all that is required is that you list the conditions, the decisions for which you disagree. For example: If you claimed 3 conditions and all were denied, you just list those three conditions.  Also, have you requested a copy of your c-file from the VA? If not, I would recommend doing so as it's crucial to a successful appeal to know exactly what the VA is looking at. I say this because your getting your records from NPRC will not necessarily give you a total picture of what's in you c-file. Good luck. P.S. Are you going to request DRO review?

Thanks bluevet, I just worry and stress to much.

I did request my c-file, &  if it comes to it Yes I will request a DRO Hearing.
