FDC Decisions seem to be taking 4 to 6 mos, Reg A$$ Claims, depending on number of issues and complexity, can take over a year.

What type of claim did you file? How about posting a redacted copy of your C & P DBQ (s?), help us get a grip on your situation.

Given that only about 15% of first time claimants are awarded benefits, you need to understand there is a high degree of probability that you will have to appeal.  

Currently, VARO claims take about a year (sometimes a little less), and appeals to the BVA are about 5 years.  

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.  Of course, you can talk to your VSO who may tell you 125 days.   He probably also would have told you Shinseki will elimate Veteran homelessness by 2012, and may sell you ocean front property in Kansas, too.  

With all that said, you could be one of the lucky ones who get benefits in weeks.  Its very rare, tho.

When you go on your MHV, go to BLUE Button. Do you know approximately when your C & P Exam was held, it was at your VMC, right?

1.  If so, click on the "Customized" for your download.

2. Then put in the approximate Dates of your Exam, allowing about 2 weeks after the Exam Date.

3. check the box for Treatment Notes (Clinician Treatment Notes).

4. Don't check any other Boxes, additional info will just get in your way.

5. Hit the Submit Button. If your C & P Exam was held at your VMC since about 01/2013, your C & P DBQ should be in your Treatment Notes.

In the event that you still don't see it, visit your VMC Medical Record Office, they'll hook you up. Ask the window clerk for just the copy of the  C & P DBQ. While your there, ask for your complete VMC Med Record on CD, always helpful for future reference.

SEEMS LIKE NOW A DAYS..... YOUR TIME STARTS WHEN YOU SUBMIT... THAT BEING SAID,,, 2 MONTHS TILL YOU GET A CP EXAM... AFTER CP EXAM ITS 3 WEEKS TILL THEY VA GET RESULTS AND WRITE UP A STUPID LETTER... GRANTING SMALL OR DENIAL. SO AFTER CP ID SAY ITS ABOUT 6 WEEKS. IVE HAD MINE WITHIN 2 WEEKS AFTER CP EXAM.

    • 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.
