Each claim is about this size...and yes, we do still turn in PAPER copies....Michael's are about the size of the one with the black strap. These have to be gone through and acted on......and I don't want to think of the mess of this photo.
Michael was a bit embarrassed, but I used the opportunity to find a rep to chat with. I asked him just how long from this point they thought it could be. He assured me the average is six months from the date the claim is filed until a determination is sent. By those dates, we should have a determination by 1 May. I asked him WHERE we were in the process - because it FEELS like that tangled mess above.
There it is - all you've ever wanted to know about the VA Disability Claim Process.
