Higher Level Review Timeline

Rate this question



Received this today from the congress liaison for my higher level review case. Today is day 88 and it the website says the HLR review shouldn't exceed 125 days. Does this email mean that it'll be done within days, or is this just a generic email? Also, what is your opinion/outcome on HLRs, if you've had one or dealt with one. Thanks.

Its pretty much a generic response.  I have not had great luck with HLR.  Instead, I appeal to the BVA.  

Its "my opinion" that if your claim has significant retro potential, you should skip HLR and go to the BVA.  Reason:  Its my opinion that GS7 or even GS11 or better rating specialists "dont have the authority" to sign off on a document that nets you hundreds of thousands of dollars in retro.  I think it takes a judge to do that, either BVA or CAVC.  I can not name a "single" Veteran, who has been granted in excess of 100,000 retro UNLESS he first appealed to the BVA or CAVC (or both) , and one or more of these judges compelled such a decision by the VARO.  

If anyone has received over 100k retro, and did not have to go to the BVA or CAVC, please correct me.  ....crickets...I didnt think so.
