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.
see http://www.hadit.com...?showtopic=1513

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
