Got this letter in the mail yesterday.
We have received your application for benefits. It is our sincere desire to decide your case promptly. However, we have a great numbers of claims. Action on yours may be delayed...We are now in the process of deciding weather additional evidence or information is needed. If we need anything else from you, we will contact you, etc, etc,...
Are they for real, My BVA appeal has been in the system for years.. According to IRIS and e-benefits and speaking to someone, my claim was decided on 9/15/11. Last I heard, it was in the Philly RO waiting to be processed.
Does anyone know if this is just a form letter that is sent every once in a while.

Now really confused and angry..

This is just an assumption but this may mean the RO actually looked at your file and found another issue they have been ignoring. Could also be for an ancillary benefit which requires an increase like IU and ETC. It also means they will take more time unless they defer the new issue.

I already get IU. I am rated 70% IU since 2008. This is for PTSD and damage to my eardrums. I also the AMC this morning and spoke to a man that had called me several months ago about my claim and this is what he said in a nutshell.


Spoke to the people at (amc) they told me they rated my case as of sept15th and i was granted full grant. They also told me my file was sent to Phila. at the nehmer center there, after they write my case upIi should be notified. I don't know how long it takes for the nehmer center to due this. Also, according to the (amc)a full grant means you would get the most you can get for the disability you are applying for.( don't know about this ). So the most you can get for IHD is 100%? According to them I was rated at a full grant, we will see. My question is, once at the nehmer center how long does it take to receive notification, and after notification how long for the money to arrive. Hope it comes before Christmas.

Hope you get an early Christmas present from the VA. As for the 20-8992, I actually got one 2 wks after i got my 100% P&T award letter. Apparently someone forgot to remove me from the form letter mailing list.
