C-file wait time


SPO

Question

So I have crossed over the 6 month mark since requesting my c-file.  I have checked online and called the 800 number without getting any further information.  I have also tried contacting Mary Ann Wentzel, who's name has come up in multiple places, but the email was not deliverable.  Any other ideas to get an actual status, or to get this thing moving before I run out of appeal time?

SPO, That has come up many times in the past and unfortunately, there isn't an answer you want to hear. You can't make them give you a response timeline, or, make them give you a copy. They would say they are "exhausting" all possible place for your "complete" file. I don't think 6 months is unusual. Sorry.

SPO it can take forever with everything else. I requested mine in March and they are still gathering information. Nothing you can do. Its the painful process we have to deal with. Hope it comes in soon for you. I'm not expecting much since i've been trying to get my medical records since 2010 and they can't find them. Good luck

Not sure how many times you sent in a request but more than once is better  than just once.

Send in the FOIA  Each time so they don''t mail you back  snail mailand tell you to send in a signed FOIA.

 I request my C-file through the Janesville Wi claims center  by regular mail  and requested it again from NRPC in St Louis...they kinda frown that I had requested it twice  but I got  sooner than 6 months.

Alex Graham  AKA  Asknod  said to request it more than once  your bound to get it sooner or later  in my case it was sooner.   let them piss and moan if they don't like it.

Mary Ann is no longer at the NRPC -RMG..I GUESS SHE RETIRED OR QUIT? She was very helpful getting my C-FILE IN 2012

Just curious, is there a point to file a congressional complaint or something?  Even if I did, would it be a waste of time? I am over 9 months waiting now with now update of any kind.  I ended up having to submit an HLR that was a long shot (which got denied) just to preserve my effective date.

SPO I truly think it would be a waste of time, unfortunately. I think as several have advised, submit another to Janesville or to NPRC, whichever you didn't send it to originally.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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’.
    2. Knowledgable 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.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to 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.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

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

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

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

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
