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.
