Should I Be Concerned?

Question

Today my claim moved from Prep for Decision, Pending Decision Approval, Prep for Notification, to Claim Complete in a matter of a few hours(about 8). Not that I do not like the lightening speed it has moved since Monday after the VA received the report back from the OTC on C&P results, yet what worries me is nothing has changed with my AB8 letter. Is this possibly a good sign I will be filing a NOD soon via having been denied or is just a matter of it not being updated as it moved so fast and completed so near the closing of business day?

I know I will have to wait on the BBE but just curious on what others may make of this or have experienced similar situations where a claim was granted that took a bit for ebennies to update via AB8 letter?

Let me guess, you filed an Fully Developed Claim and your 6 month deadline was looming? The same thing happened to me and the C&P that the VA received was totally and completely inadequate and should never have been used to render a decision, but the VA used it to deny my claim anyway, I assume because they were under mandate to complete my claim in 6 months and the C&P came in on the last day. If I had known then what I know now, I would have sought an IME without waiting for my C&P to come back. If I were you, I would request a copy of the C&P right away. If your R.O. is close enough, you can walk in and get it.

The claim was for asthma and per PFT results there is no way it should have been denied. FEV-1 was 25% post predicted. However the C&P examiner was a neuromusculoskeletal specialist, no expertise in the pulmonary field, so I am going to request the copy of the C&P. I am sure they must have used some bogus information from the C&P to deny the claim if it was in fact denied.  Also my claim was just approaching the four month mark. 

I hear some say it takes a few days for the AB8 letter to update while others say it automatically updates when the claim is complete. I really don't look forward to my first long appeals process.
