Where is the Estimated Completion Date Found

Rate this question



I have a GRANT of an appeal with the VLJ that was granted in April 2019, TDIU dating back to 2012.  I am told by the DVA that I also was awarded P and T and that the completion date is October 9, 2019, tomorrow. 

I know in the past I could see the Prep for Notification and estimated completion on Ebenefits but that has all been moved to Va.gov now and I see nothing there other that the GRANTED statement and a timeline for a remand that was also on appeal. 

Does anyone know if you can still see the estimated completion date anywhere and if so, where do I find it. 

Thank you

The Estimated completion date is a mathematical formula consisting of:

1.  Take The Veterans birth date, divide it by his social security number's effective date.  

2.  To this, multiply it time 3.1416 (value of Pi).  

3.  Multiply it times the speed of light, 186,000 miles per second. (Its the C2 of E=MC2)

4.  Now, discard the answer and substitute, "when VA wants to get it done".  

The VA does stuff, in exactly the order they please, and you will get it completed not one second before VA wants to get it done.  They carefully guard the number "when VA wants to", and only give out that number to VA executives.  

Estimated completion date is about as usefull as your IP address.

That formula pretty much sums it up

Tmannfish, the VA exceeded their estimated completion date on my last grant by three months.  As Broncovet pointed out it is meaningless.  The estimated completion date for my DRO hearing is 1 year + or -.  And if you ask the helpline what that means they will tell you it is just a date put out there as an "estimate" when they tell you the truth.
