BVA remand - out of blue and unexpectedly early


az arr

Question

Ok, I have read the boards and try to keep track.  

I filed a Form 9 appeal in October 2017.  Once a month, I log onto vets.gov to see where I am in line.  March 1, there were over 115,000 appeals in front of me.  I assumed it would be a few more years.  Then all of a sudden in today's mail, I received a package from the BVA remanding and ordering the local office (Phoenix) to give a C&P exam and explain a few things (first time, no C&P ordered). 

Why did the board bump me to the top of the list when I have no special circumstances?  Or did they bump me to the top of the list and this is just normal?  

 

Thank you.

Has nothing to do with that.  I am 314516 in line according to va.gov. My appeal is from 2014.  I would be happy they are working on it. I am now 10 months after remand was issued and they have just scheduled me for another c&p. 

You should be happy it is moving!

I agree with Shrek. 

Im lucky if I can tell you why "I" did something.  I would be able to tell you much less why my wife did something.  But I would have "no clue" as to why VA does stuff, reminding you they have zillions of employees, with vastly differing education levels and degrees of compassion for Vets.  The VA is not a unified body.

Although it's just a guess, it may have something to do with the recent implementation of the RAMP Act which was meant to streamline certain cases and place other appeals in specific "lanes" toward a quicker resolution

 Unfortunately, you will learn, we are talking about the VA here. There is no normal. As Shrek said, you really should be happy it's moving!
