Back in Aug 2010, I submitted a form for an increase for PTSD. On Oct 6, 2010, I had my C&P exam. I have not heard a word about this until I had a friend that works at the VA find out for me, and he tells me that it is at the Raters. Does anyone have a guess how long it takes at the Raters? I was told that they will go by the oldest date first.

Papa, my claim went to "Preparation for Decision" (the Rating Authority) as Peggy calls it on Dec 14, 2011 and the Varo reached a decision on May 14, 2012. It was 5 months. But you know I made my call to Washington D.C. As it was a hardship case. There are many variables involved and each claim is uniquely different. Good Luck!
