@  vet201060 : (26 August 2014 - 10:00 AM) Went From Pending Decision Approval To Review Of Evidence Today, I Need To Stop Looking At It. Drives You Crazy Waiting
@  GlassRose1500 : (25 August 2014 - 09:30 PM) @coriemboh I Get My Best Claim Advice Here, But My Dav Guy Gets The Best Intel Once The Claim Is Filed
@  coriemboh : (25 August 2014 - 08:57 PM) The Average Processing Time Is 9 Months More Or Less. Every Time I Call The 800#, I Get A Different Answer. Goe, Roe....make Up Your Mind!
@  coriemboh : (25 August 2014 - 08:56 PM) I Just Want To Know Ballpark Figure Of How Much Longer My Claim Will Take. The Bills Are Piling Up. Adds To My Anxiety And Depression. Sure Wish I Could Tell Bill Collectors The Same Things Va Tells Me!
@  coriemboh : (25 August 2014 - 08:54 PM) @glassrose1500-No, I Don't. I Put In For Representation A Few Days Ago, But I'm Sure That End Won't Pan Out Until The Claim Is Closed.
@  GlassRose1500 : (25 August 2014 - 12:11 PM) Would Appreciate Feedback On My Smc Draft - Posted In The Smc Section! Tkx!
@  GlassRose1500 : (25 August 2014 - 12:04 PM) @coriemboh - Do You Have A Service Rep You Can Call? They Usually Have More Info...
@  coriemboh : (25 August 2014 - 11:16 AM) Called The 800 # To Check Status Of Claim. Really Frustrated With The Lack Of Information.
@  vet201060 : (25 August 2014 - 10:12 AM) Just Checked Ebenefits And Claim Was Pending Decision Approval And Then Checked Few Minutes After That And Now Prep For Decision. Drives Me Crazy

After filing my claim for additional benefits the VA has scheduled a C&P over two years later. They called me this afternoon and my exam is 8:30 AM Friday or less than 48 hours notice. The guy who called me did not know what the C&P is for but he said it was for a new Doc.

Excellent article - now what're they gonna DO about it?

I was disgusted with the Social Security letters I got during my working years that said "We've got your back; rest assured, here's how much you can get if something happens to you."

I never intended to use it but, when I was in need, it was a similar bureaucratic middle finger.

Not just veterans but working folks of all flavors deserve better treatment than suffering for years in poverty.

Nothing. I can only suggest that they assess the workload averages of each VA employee. When you know that a Regional Office is totally over whelmed with work, and another one is not, it is time to make some claim transfers. You see this in all government agencies, some are setting on there butts, and some are working there butts off.

Im guessing this failure is limited to Texas Veterans, right? MMM Probably not.
