MST Claim Timeframe

Rate this question



Hello, Everyone!

I filed a claim almost 6 months ago for PTSD MST, Generalized Anxiety, Major Depressive Disorder and Panic Disorder for sexual assault and domestic violence while I was active duty. I provided police reports for the abuse, but for the sexual assault, I didn't have any evidence. However, I was pregnant at the time of the sexual assault and had a very painful miscarriage because of the assault. My pregnancy (sonograms) as well as miscarriage was documented in my service treatment records. It has been well over 15 years since the miscarriage, and I guess I'm nervous that all of my treatment records won't be there. 

I had my C&P Exam almost a month ago. It was really tough (I cried from the beginning until the end), but the C&P exam was very favorable for me. My VSO showed me the report and the examiner checked every box except 3. In her opinion, she said that I was totally impaired which my VSO said equates to 100%.  Well, I called VA to ask about my status and was told that treatment records were being scanned into my claim. Do you think this means that they indeed found the records in my service treatment records? I also wanted to know if it is common for a MST claim process to he so long. This is my first time ever filing a claim and I juat guess I'm overanalyzing everything and my anxiety is through the roof. Thanks in advance for your help!

No 6 months is not to long matter fact it can take a lot longer that that with some MST Claims

if you had your C&P A Month ago it should not be to long now.

  they maybe adding up all your symptoms and may find other things  in your records that can be favorable to your claim...just try to relax and wait until you get your BBE in the mail

it sounds like you got this!

a 100% rating will certainly help you financially ...but do stay in treatment as long as you need to.

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
