C-File completed?

Rate this question



The FOIA for my C-File showed up as Gathering of Evidence under "open claims" until 11/30/17, when it moved to the completed section. Does anyone know approximately how long it'll take for them to finish processing my C-File now that it's "completed" under eBenefits and send it to me? Do they get mailed right away? Or do they get put into another stack where I have to wait another 6 months for it to get mailed? Also, my NOD got denied so I filed a substantive appeal. However, the substantive appeal has been sitting at the originating VA office for the past several months. Does anyone know approximately how long it takes for substantive appeals to be moved from the originating VA office to the board and get a docket number? Thanks!

My cfile is also about 5000 pages.  The length of your cfile depends on medical evidence, decisions, and how much of it VA has shredded, if any.  Many cfiles are electronically stored, as mine is.  I have it on DVD rom.

As of 2016 Most veterans with claims have had their C-File Digitized and place in a compact Disk. 

Much Much easier to read & make copies  After placed and copied over to Your Computer/Lap Top

Acrobat Pro Reader is a Great Program to use for this change over.
