My reassessment finally went to complete yesterday. Letter is in the mail. It took a total of 27 weeks and 1 day from the time it went to step 3.
I was told it was a favourable decision so Iím happy about that, even tho the wait was frustrating.

No, appealing a decision does not place a hold on the money that was approved. What will happen, is you would get the 20% amount, and then the 10% amount, if the appeal is successful. Of cousre, the amount of money will depend on how you choose to take it, under the PFL. As a lump sum, you would just get the 10% lump sum amount (approx $36000), but if you choose to take the monthly pension, the additional 10% would bring your overall monthly pension to $345, and would paid retroactively, back to the original application date.

you mentioned another year of waiting, if your ptsd % was originally 10% ,and through BPA or whatever or your own reassessment you feel the % should be 30%, but the reassessment comes back as 20%, so you appeal, does that have an effect on the money you are about to receive.? I.e. you should still get the 20% until VAC decides if youíre entitled to more right.? They donít freeze it at the original amount because you were not happy with 20% until they decide if the ptsd disability is actually 30% as you and BPA suggest do they ?

Sleeping dog,

I can't remember how many weeks in each instance, but the last reassessment adjudication took approximately 36 weeks if I remember correctly.

None of those reassessments was initiated by the BPA. I simply asked VAC to reassess me with the new information I had to back up my claim.

I did encounter push back from my CM at the time I requested the assessments that were a year apart, but after arguing with her about it a few times she relented. Ultimately my claim was successful.

is that a first time application for ptsd or a reassessment, ? If youíre already receiving something for ptsd and they do a reassessment after 2 years, it falls under a departmental review not a first time application, either way 49 weeks is basically a year , thatís B.S.!

I've had 4 reassessments for PTSD since 2008. Two of those reassessments were 1 year apart. None were a departmental review and all had a positive outcome.

Veterans can request a reassessment every two years or sooner in some cases if the veteran can provide new information to support their claim and if they feel their condition/s have worsened.
do you know how many weeks you waited from reassessment to positive outcome? In my case BPA felt my % was off so they resubmitted the claim. On the my vac account they are calling it a " departmental review " not a reassessment, either way I'm waiting at twice the posted average, but life goes on

Sleeping Dog, Iím not sure how they do these claims. It seems like some people get thereís completed way faster than others. It makes no sense. No consistency at all. Itís ridiculous. Iím almost 24 weeks now at step 3.

Sorry to hear that Xmedic. Best of luck in your appeal.

I just received my ptsd reassessment that was submitted May 13, 2018. I'm disappointed with the result so now I have to take it to VRAB which will likely mean another year of waiting.
