  • 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.

    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

VA.GOV gets time line wrong

Question

Not surprising VA.Gov doesn't even get a projected time line correct...

I have a claim pending that was received at the BVA on 13 Feb 2019

Set to a judge on 24 Jul 2019

The below this it states it takes one to two months after the appeal is sent to a judge , so I should have had an answer in Sept 

Of course I am still waiting.....

If you believe the projected timelines Richard1954 you will be disappointed.  My case spent a while at the BVA but it worked out in my favor.  They read and recognized all of the evidence and gave a favorable decision.  I would not want my case to quickly pass through the BVA like it passes through the RO.  Haste makes denials.  Good luck and good hunting.

We are in the same boat. Claim was sent to a judge 22 Aug 2019 with the same estimated timeline of 1 to 2 months and we are still waiting. I never trust the timelines listed and I agree with vetquest that I would rather them take their time with the case and not rush through it. Still, waiting can be difficult at times... Best of luck to you!

We all are in the same boat. Very frustrating. I just look at it in a positive perspective. The longer it takes and if I am service granted, Ching Ching, look out backpay. We all know that they are gonna take their time being that they are trying to same money for their Xmas bonus for this year.

I know enough not to trust what it says at VA.Gov or any other VA web site.....  I was merely indicating that they say a decision would be made one - two months after the Judge receives the appeal...

In my case that would have been in September...

 

My only point was that they don't even go back and change the projected completion time even when  the original  projected time passes...

Its a waste of  time, and taxpayer money to create web sites that do not contain  correct information...... Just saying.. but know  I am talking to the choir

    • I was denied SC for IBS and GERD IN 2011. In 2019 I was awarded SC for GERD. This CUE  is for 2011, both GERD and IBS. There are some odd aspects regarding the 2011 decision, the way it was written and the C&P report and the way it was written. I've tried to present this as clearly as I can. Note: the decision contradicts itself. the decision also contradicts the C&P Report. Honestly, I think the rater just got confused because the C&P was so poorly written. *THIS CUE HAS NOT YET BEEN SUBMITTED*Please let me know what you think. Appreciate all comments and suggestions. Thanks.
