Question

Hi all,

My VSO submitted my supplemental claim form on Feb 7, 2020. I called Peggy, she says form received February 10, in the upload cue.

While it's awaiting upload, are they also reviewing it? Or does review begin AFTER the upload is complete? I submitted it with all appropriate evidence (new and relevant, of course) which should be cut and dry - a positive DBQ from a VA facility, and an MRI reading from my private care doc. 

I know Google says 125 days (as does VA, obviously) but I've seen some people say as little as 10 working days. I don't even see the appeal on eBennies or VA.gov yet - is that normal?

Thank you!

Mine took about 3 weeks to show up on va.gov.

Then a week or two after that, the decision was made and ebenefits updated.

You will most likely not see it in ebennies/VA.gov until it is uploaded.  I will not say never because the VA constantly comes up with new ways to amaze us.  I cannot say how long a Fully developed claim takes,  mine took ten months from the time it was posted until it was done.  I have heard of others being done in a few weeks.  With the VA we can never tell what they will do and how quickly.  Sorry I cannot be more specific.

Were your results positive (in your favor)?

Yes they were.  Overall I'm pretty impressed with the supplemental claim route, but I guess I'm biased now.  From the date I mailed in the form, it was right at 30 days before ebenefits was updated.

I just faxed a HLR yesterday trying to chase down some backpay.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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. 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.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, 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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a 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 of your claim?”
