How long does it take for the VA to settle a claim that should have been settle in 2004 that the VA admit that they made the error but want to drag their feet and what can I do to speed this process?

Answer Question



A1:  If you have all the copies of VA letters, did you file an appeal, was a hearing held, You probably should contact an Accredited Veteran Service Officer, and get a review on the claim.  (GR)  6/29/19

A2:  I hope you haven't been inactive about this claim for 15 years. If you haven't done anything or communicated with VA claims, you're probably looking at going back to square one. You may have to file a new claim and rating would be aspf the claim date, not 2004. Read up on the process and follow it. Stay proactive.  (GC)  6/29/19

A3:  It can take until you die as they do not care. The VA gets bonuses for not awarding you anything. Don't you understand that? If you have a legitimate claim with documentation you need to send a request for assistance to your U.S. Representative and your two U.S. Senators. That is what they are for which is to represent you. Any correspondence form a member of Congress has to be answered within a 24 hour period. There is also service organizations like the VFW, DAV, American Legion, and others so establish a relationship with them to help you. Without delay. The VA also misplaces files and letters all of the time so they may have lost your file. I recommend to keep copies of all correspondence and send mail registered. Do not give up ever.  (JD)  6/29/19
