To calculate this, use this formula:

Divide your age by the number of months you served.  Multiply that time Pi, 3.1416.  

Take that number and divide it by your monthly compensation times the months you have been recieving it.  

After you get that number, toss it out and guess because VA will complete your claim "exactly" when they want to and not one minute earlier.  

By using the above you can calculate the precise number of minutes for your claim to be processed.  Or, throw a dart at a dart board and buy a lottery ticket.  They all achieve the same results.

Well they promised 125 days or sooner  in this new Ramp System, if you have a well ''grounded claim''  you may get lucky and they adjuicate your claim in your favor before the 125 days.

but no one can answer that question correct.

The only time I have heard of the term "Grounded Claim" was back in the late 90s. The term was not favorable to veterans, it was used as "NOT WELL GROUNDED". During that time VA was denying veterans claims by the bucket loads.  Shredded records, lost misfiled records, records lost due to fire, records stored in file cabinets, no service members records,  you name it.  VA was denying almost all claims. I recently won a CUE EED form BVA back to 1998. Somehow VA denied my claim with the evidence already in my file.  But I won my claim with a CAVC joint remand and BVA granted my effective date of 1998.

Same here with my claim I filed in April 1998

VA use the term not well grounded to deny , my point was  if a veteran has a well grounded claim and they read it and don't lose it or it gets burned or lost in a fire missed place and forgotten about it may benefit the veteran as favorable   but  that's the VA.


....then  we have the copies of the evidence we sent in.  it sets up the veteran to CUE them. like you had to do...its unfortunate but at the time that's about all we could do.

We need to be more positive for these younger veterans and put our past in the past and move forward, what happen to us older vets don't need to happen to the younger veterans. (jmo)

Anyway that's what I have learn over the years.

    The Veterans Crisis Line can help even if you’re not enrolled in VA benefits or health care.

    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.
    • 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?”

    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
