I did a full claim when I retired about 11 years go.  Been 60% and steadily working.  After surgery and other back problems, I finally quit procrastinating and filed for an increase due to my deteriorating back. From the time I submitted, which was super easy online, to my C&P exam was two weeks.  My most recent MRI showed severe foraminal stenosis on both sides multiple levels.  I also added radicupathy to the list.  The examiner only measured me bending forward.  It did not help that I was having back spasms at the time of the visit.  
How long is it taking for the VA rater to complete?

How long it takes the VA to rate your claim is the question.  I would think it would be soon since you have your C&P exam, but who knows.

Current, time per VA website for an average claim is 106.4 days.

Claims happen within the timeframe outlined by the va.

Appeals, on the other hand are never resolved given BVA timeline.

The backlog will take sometime to catch up (if ever).

I’m currently 530 days into a direct review lane BVA appeal. BVA timeline was said to be 365 days. Now the timeline has changed to 2 years from docket date.

This is due to Legacy appeals needing to be adjudicated first, also veterans 75 yrs and older, hardship appeals and remands also contribute to the backlog.
