I wondered if anyone has experience on how long it takes for the BVA to make a decision once a hearing is completed and the vet is granted his motion for an advance on the docket due to hardship? My initial claim is 6 years old and I just had my BVA hearing 2 weeks ago.

Well first you have to realize there are many others that
have also applied for advance due to either
1) advanced age
2) terminal illness
3) financial hardship

So there really is no way to provide any answer that is
anything more than speculation.

The BVA already granted my application to advance it on the docket while I was at the BVA hearing. Does that mean it goes to the front of the pile but behind the other claims that have already been granted an advance on the docket? I know it may only be speculation but has anyone else heard how long claims take at the BVA once there is an advance on the docket?

Dave,

What I have been hearing at all levels, RO, BVA, U.S. court, etc. is that everyone is doing hardship, congress pushes, etc. So when it boils down to it everyone is really in the same long order. What is your BVA docket date? I had a BVA docket date of July 2006 and they made a decision on March 2008. I'm sure you don't want to hear this but I'm just being honest.

It means you start out at the bottom of the pile that has been granted an advance on the docket.
What is the hardship your advancement was granted for ? That plays a role in things also.
My speculation is since you've already had your BVA Hearing and advancement was granted - you may hear something in the next 3-36 months.

It will depend alot on what reason advancement was granted for.

Dont hold your breath on a financial hardship "advance on the docket". I filed one in 2004, the RO shredded it and I lost my home in 2005.

Yep I asked for it in 1991 and it took 5 and 1/2 years. I do think that they do try to do homeless Vets claims quicker.
