Bigrex- Your spot on. They have created a monster, with all the various benefits. And I do remember back a few yrs ago, when my CM could approve things. I知 not convinced after next Apr if things will improve, for our ynger brothers and sisters behind us. Johnny Out..VVV

See, the problem is, back before the NVC was adopted, the only things that Veterans really needed to be apply for, was disability pensions and VIP, and VIP was likely approved at the local level, so they were able to reach decisions far more rapidly. Now we have to apply for disability awards, ELB, VIP, CIA, CIAS, Caregiver Allowance, CIB, RISB, CFIS, the rehab program and DEC. Each with their own rules and regulations. Except VAC didn't hire more staff to adjudicate all of these different applications, and when they delegated more power to approve some of the benefits to the CM's, they quickly yanked them back, because the CM's saw the Veterans as actual people, instead of just numbers on a spreadsheet.

yes, but how long is too long, when VAC promises 16 weeks and it痴 now 32 .?

The latest is not that they will hire people and fix the problem but that they will simply tell us that our claims will take 26 to 30 weeks...or more. The knowledge that it will take a long time is what the government thinks is an adequate response.

l hear there are 30,000 claims in, but I think the real reason for the stall is that VAC was instructed by the Liberals to hold off on pay outs until April 1 2019

so when a vet wants to inquire about the hold up on a disability claim, that is now at the 20 week mark or longer on a supposed 16 week time frame, where do you begin. Do you call/myvacaccount your Cm.? And if so what can they do for you.? Or are you supposed to start the inquiry somewhere else, with someone in more authority?

You can call VAC or message them on My VAC account. As to what they can for you depends on your specific situation.

It was 32 weeks for my PTSD reassessment adjudication with a positive decision. All required documents received by VAC in August 2017.

Fordguy, it was around the first week of August that it went to step 3. I put my reassessment claim in back in May.
