Hi everyone,

My husband called to check on the status of his TDIU & CUE claims and was told that they were with the Decision Review Officer.

Questions: (1) What does this mean and is this a good thing; (2) How long does it take for a decision to be made (1, 2, or 3 months longer); and (3) What is the next step after this?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

Yes, a good thing - the claim is being actively decided
Decision, probably less than 3 months, I guess no more than.... Note:*see Carlies post above, better information.cg
Next step - the decision will be mailed to you. If decided in favor, there will be a deposit. If denied, there are steps to take to appeal.

will keep positive thoughts for you and yours,
Cowgirl'up!

Charleese,
If he called the 800 number pay very LITTLE attention to
their answer.
Had he filed a NOD and requested a De Novo Review?


Questions: (1) What does this mean and is this a good thing;

See above

(2) How long does it take for a decision to be made (1, 2, or 3 months longer); and

It depends on how backlogged your VARO is,
who actually has the claim and if they are working on it or,
if it is sitting somewhere inside a pile of other claims or,
if it's actually before the DRO's eyes and the DRO feels some additional
development needs to be done... etc...
It could be 3-24 months before a Rating Decision is promulgated.


(3) What is the next step after this?

If everything is granted - money in the bank.
If it's a partial grant - NOD what was denied.
If it's a total denial - Submit a substantially completed VA Form 9
and get in line of about 3-5 years for BVA.

jmho,

carlie
