Hello all. I am new to posting, but have been researching on this site for awhile and have learned so much. I have a question for anyone who can advise. Here is a short background on the case. My husband filed his first claim in 2005 for service connection on Migraines and PTSD. He was denied shortly thereafter and began an appeal which was granted (after several years and a hearing with VLJ) 30% in each disability in June 2011. However he appealed the 30% on migraines because they are so debilitating and were causing him to miss a great deal of work. He had his hearing in April 2017 and received a decision on March 7 2018 that he had been granted a 50% rating on migraines and a remand for TDIU. Here is where the question comes in. Vets.gov has recently updated their site and I was able to see all the past events from the FIRST APPEAL. The timeline of that appeal stated that the BVA made a decision on his appeal on March 1, 2010. However, the VA did not grant the issue until May 26, 2011 (that was also when the retro check was received). I know the remand portion will take awhile, but we were hoping for the increased rating and retro soon. We are almost at the 3 month mark now since the BVA grant. Do you think we will have to wait 14 months for the retro like we did on the first appeal? Thanks for any input!
