Fully Developed Claim question

Question

If a new claim is filed shortly after an FDC, does this kick both claims out of FDC status once they are consolidated?

Most of the time Yes, it will convert your initial FDC into a Traditional Claim.  Why did you submit a new claim, while the FDC was already filed?

Well, my VSO submitted my information.  I told him I still wanted to claim another disability, and had more evidence to submit, and he said that you can just submit it once you have everything under a new FDC.  So.....I think I was fed the wrong info.  Anyway, really does not matter either way.  I filed on April 1st, and have already been scheduled for C&P's.  I just wasn't sure if it was "kicked" out of FDC status.

I'm curious as to the difference between the timeline for completion between an FDC vs. a Traditional Reg Axx claim....

No one seems to tell you that this is the case, whether or not your claim is still FDC or if it in fact "DID" get changed to a reg claim.

Anybody know?

Yes if you submit a new claim while another claim is pending (excluding appeals/NOD) then they will combine the claims into one and usually they will convert to a traditional claim.

I had a traditional claim start May 2013 - got a partial award June 2014 - then final award with denials in November 2014.  Filed an NOD November 2014 and had my hearing in February 2016.  Still awaiting the results of the NOD hearing.

Filed an FDC twice while my appeal was pending and both separate FDC's took about 3 months tops for me.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
