No way to go quicker

Question

The woman on the phone says I need to just wait for the doctors to make their determination she says the computer says my claim will be done by May 13. She said is your address the same I said sure unless I lose my home but I'll have to wait and see how this goes. She said ok and goodbye. I really thought my claim would be quicker then 3 more months that'd 4 months total but I can't complaint if it's a positive outcome. But anything like the VA skipping the reconsider and asking an appeal. Is that a good idea? I'm thinking ahead in the future never expect a good outcome just disappointing learned something with the VA. Guess I'm a sucker I see that my claim has been with the DDS since 1/13 so basically she just added 4 months since that's the average would be 5/13.

First, none of us know "how long your claim will take".  If someone does know this, then ask them for next week's winning lotto numbers, and you can count on losing the value of a lottery ticket.  

You need to do 3 things:

1.  Pray for the best.  

2.  Prepare for the worst.  

3.  Understand your future is out of your hands and the guy who does have control over your future has your back, so worry is unnecessary.

Bronc, remember the big "Black 8 Ball" from the 50 - 60's? Ask a question, shake it around and read the very intelligent answer in the viewing window.

One should be issued to every New Vet filing a Comp Claim. Would definitely help them figure out "How much longer." Almost as accurate as calling the 800 Help line.
