  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

bva grant, waiting on rating and efective date.

Question

I received a letter from the BVA dated May 24 , 2018 stating that I had been granted service connection for some issues and a remand for other issues. I am still waiting on an effective date and rating. My question is will the VA implement the grant while waiting on the remand? how long does this process usually take? I was ok while my case was on appeal but since I received my grant I have went crazy. I check e benefits 3 times a day and i cannot stop wondering what my new rating is. How long does this process take? I thought I had won my case but nothing has changed. sooo tired of waiting on the VA. Any info on time would be great or any suggestions to speed this up.

I was going through the same thing. I have a grant and remand from May 1st. My rep finally sent a email to whoever they go through to get paid last week. He called me yesterday and told me my rating and said it should be implemented anywhere from 10 to 90 days now. Now I'm just waiting for the new c&p exam ordered by the bva and getting this remand finished.

Four months after a BVA decision is not really "expiditious treatment".  You should have received "at least" an implementing decision from your VARO along with a rating decision and effective date, plus retro.  

The remand portion can take a bit longer.  

I suggest:

1.  Contact IRIS and explain what you posted, and ask the status on implementing your BVA appeal.  

2.  Consider contacting the white house with the same question.  Also, consider contacting your BVA ombudsman, and your representative, if you have one.  

3.  After you have done the above, and the VA still has not replied with at least some satisfaction, you can consider a writ of mandamus to compel VARO to implement the BVA decision.

Thank you all.

Once the BVA makes a decision it needs to go to the original RO for them to grant a percentage and release funds.  Unfortunately the RO does not work any faster on BVA decisions in my experience.  My attorney sent a letter stating that the next correspondence would be a writ of mandamus and this got them working on my last remand.  Unless you have someone to file a writ or you have the knowledge to file the writ you need to follow Broncovet's advice and contact the IRIS or the Whitehouse.
