If your claim(s) have been at the rating activity since the beginning of December, I would suspect it shouldn't be too much longer. Have you had a C&P exam yet?
As far as the rest of your disabilities and speculating as to what ratings you may acheive, it's hard to tell with the little information you posted. PTSD can be rated fro 10% to 100% depending on the symptoms in your case. Hearing loss is hard to tell if one does not have the actual readings with the frequencies. With the rest of your disabilities, it would being just to difficult to say without more concrete information.

vike 17, i have not had a C&P. i asked about it my last trip at the v.a. i was told by a person in benefits that all i may need is a records review based on my release from active duty so recently, and that most all of my diagnosis were made at the v.a within the last 10 months. i went to the v.a. initially 8 months after discharge. also i know its difficult to get a rating without seeing my file, i was just curious. i'm new to the v.a. game..thanks..martin
My husband was diagnosed and treated by the VA.All of his medkcal records with the exception of the radiographic stuff was done by the VA. He had two reports from the SS doctors when he got his SSDI. Everything else was VA. We called the VARO and asked the status of the claim. We were told that it was at the rating board.
We were told at the rating board for three months. Then a cople of weeks ago we got notices for C&P exams. Two of them scheduled over a month apart. We didn't think they were going to do those C&P exams.......but they did. So the file is probably back with the pre-determination team.
When they say it's at the rating board be prepared for many different things to happen. But at least when things happen you know the file is being looked at. There are many here at hadit who haven't heard anyhting about their file for a year or longer.
Good luck, I hope you get your rating soon.
