Per VA WACO RO......does anyone know of a source link or phone number to find out the average processing time currently to get a DRO Hearing date in Waco?
I think itsa long wait atleat 12 months
You might try calling the DRO who is to hear your case and ask for an expedite, if you know who your DRO is?
I believe member Navy4life did that with waco R.O. and got moved up with in 2 months. But when she got there for her DRO Hearing her orginal DRO was not there (on vacation)and they called in another DRO that didn't know her case and messed up her entire case
Buck......how do you find out what DRO has been assigned to your Hearing? Are you saying at least 12 months from the time a NOD was filed? I filed 14 months ago but have not heard a word since they acknowledged receiving Appeals 13 months ago. I keep reading that Waco is one of the slowest processors in the nation. How do you go about asking for an expedite? I thought you had to be a hardship case like homeless, old age, or terminally ill. I am none of those.
If this is a denial decision and you timely filed your NOD AND REQUEST A DRO Hearing usually it takeS 12 months or longer b/c of the Waco Backlog. if no hardship case then you just have to wait , but you can call the 1-800 # and ask about a time line for your DRO Hearing.
Now if you get a proposal to reduce &sent in NOD you should get a letter from your R.O. to inform you of a DRO Hearing or go on up to the BVA, DRO Hearing is usually a lot faster to decide your claim.(especially if you have new and material favorable evidence) or any evidence not shown on record
when you get your letter you will have 60 days to respond back to your R.O.
you can call your RO and see if a DRO has been assign to your case? is yes request his/her name.
If its been more than a Year and you have not heard anything back call your R.O. & Ask why this is taking so long?
What is the 800# to call. Thanks.
