I have gone through all this shyte and then some. Just my 2 cents... short of the 400 new VaC hires coming up to speed (should be). Hell, expect to be denied by November. Anything better than that is fracking gravy.

Approach another cm ? ... HAVE THEM VISIT YOU. That's part of their job.
One way or another Artie, if you need the assistance or benefits of VaC you gotta deal with them. And you DON'T have to do it alone hunkered down somewhere either.

Support is out there if you need it, but walking away from it won't help.

I think that is part of my hesitation, if I jump through all of VAc`s hoops and then get denied I`m liable to go off like a volcano rather that calmly ask for a second opinion or whatever the appropriate response is. I know some out there have the patience to keep re-applying but I`m just tired of it all.

I think the backlog quote is on the MYVAC page if you go to claims you have submitted and where they are at.

On my VAC it says VAC strives for a decision within 6 weeks once at stage 3 but have a higher than normal application volume. So just wondering how far behind they actually are? I was stage 3 April 1st so seems like I've got a long ways to wait stil.

Ha! I've had a few victories in the last year with help from this forum. I've probably called VAC and the ombudsman and VRAB a few hundred times for them.
I just wish they'd take the BS out of BenefitS.

We did not have to apply for this one, it was VAC initiated.

The reassessent stage is 12 weeks from the time they receive your written application for reassessment. They will send you a letter advising you of service standard date SSD likely within 10 days of receiving your letter. "It must be a written request"
If you call in they can tell you your SSD ....

That's the standard reassessment time. For the CIA reassessment that started for all vets that were receiving PIA in April 2017, a separate reassessment was to be done. Many have had theirs done as early as April and the letter we received said within a few months they will be done.

I can assure you an in person visit with a CM in your area will help you a lot. Face to Face it will clear up your concerns.
I met with my CM 3 months ago and 3 months before that but I don`t get out much and hate meeting new people., I also don`t feel confident they have my best interest at heart, my distrust in the gov. is part of my psychosis. This is my 3rd CM I don`t know where the other two went , just every so often I get a phone call saying " I`m your new CM". and calling VAC directly just results in frustration and being told, to hunker down.
