    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

LEGACY NOD QUESTION

Question

Good Morning. I just filed my NOD about a week ago. Mailed it to the intake center and received notification and signed receipt by the intake center for it. My question is roughly how long does it take to show up on the website as received and in process?

According to Alex Graham, your NOD WONT be a "legacy" nod, but rather an AMA NOD.  

EXCEPTION:   If your decision was received PRIOR to Feb. 19, 2019, the you can still probably stay in legacy appeals.    However, if your decision you are disputing is AFTER Feb. 19, then you will be put into AMA (formerly called RAMP).  Did you apply on the correct form(s)?  VA loves to deny because we filed on the wrong form.  

As far as "how long", the short answer is no one knows.  The BVA chairman does track averages which you can look up, if you choose.  In short, it takes an average of about 5 years from the time you file a nod until you can expect a Bva decision.  

A significat portion of this 5 years is your VARO "sitting" on your decision, doing an SOC, and certifying your claim to the bVA.

This is sad but true.  Maybe the AMA will process your claim sooner.  I know under the legacy system NOD's are ten to twenty-six months out at the RO.

My decision was prior to 19 Feb 2018 so I have to go legacy. I know it will take years but I'm just curious how long it takes them on average to upload the docs to Vet.gov

No.  You can still "elect" ramp for decisions prior to 19 Feb. 2019.  To do this, simply send in your NOD form along with your RAMP election form.  You are not forced into legacy appeals, you have the option to go either way.  However, if your decision is after 19 Feb. 2019 you will automatically be put in AMA (formerly called RAMP).

AMA was NEVER called RAMP.

RAMP was an interim program that has been discontinued as of Feb 19, 2019

Rapid Appeals Modernization Program (RAMP)

What is RAMP?
  • The Rapid Appeals Modernization Program (RAMP) was launched in November 2017.
  • RAMP provided Veterans the opportunity to use the new review process in the Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act of 2017. The Act, otherwise known as the Appeals Modernization Act, was signed into law on Aug. 23, 2017.
  • RAMP was discontinued on February 15, 2019, ahead of full implementation of the Appeals Modernization Act.

    • I filed a claim in october of 2018 for ptsd and TDIU, long story short I tried to do everything myself and didn't have the proper diagnosis so I was service connected for anxiety based on having a medical marijuana card diagnosis for anxiety but the rating was 30% and I much worse off then that. So I obtained a referral from the va to a fancy psychiatrist from the university of north florida's behavior health department and was diagnosed with ptsd, bi polar 1 and panic disorder. I used this new medical evidence as my supplemental claim evidence and filed it April 16, 2019 after receiving my letter March 20, 2019. My claim is now at Pending Decision Approval with an estimated completion date of july 2, 2019 which is super fast from all I have read. My question is, Am I going to be awarded tdiu with the evidence I submitted if they adjust me up to 70% which I think it will . Or if they award 70% for ptsd on this new supplemental claim will i have to re-apply for tdiu again? Or would that all be considered in the final review of the entire claim? Thanks for any help.

    • how do you figure when they will start paying me at the 100% rate, housebound..?  They will start the pay before they finish the back pay?  That would be nice !!

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.
