It depends on too many factors to guess.

Welcome to Hadit!

There's really a lot to it. Once it has been received and cataloged into the system, you can check the status of it via va.gov. They will give you an estimation as to how long it might take.

As the others have said it takes the VA as long as it takes the VA.  We have all been through it.  Once you have filed and submitted all relevant information try to get a hobby to take your mind off of your case.  It will drive you crazy otherwise.  Appeals to the BVA can be completed in a few years to more than ten.  It is a long journey sometimes.

Keep in mind that when your claim is assigned to a rater, the rater may still have other claims he/she is working on and they may start a new claim before starting on your claim.  I have seen multiple claims at a raters desk and in their cubicle.

You can also get in idea of how many claims are backed up at your regional office by looking here: https://www.benefits.va.gov/REPORTS/detailed_claims_data.asp#Reports

 

and then look for the date you want in 2020, then on the last page of the report that opens up is the listing by Regional office workload.

Last year the VA implemented some significant process changes. Before the changes, you were stuck at a single VARO for the most part. If they were backed up, it took that much longer. After the changes, they would out of a centralized national work queue. Claims get assigned out to different VARO's who have availability. It appears to be working to some extent to alleviate the unnecessarily long wait times. Keep in mind that appeals to the BVA do not work out of that queue and still take a very long time.

    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?”

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

    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
