Good luck with yours as well. You should give them a call, if doesnít hurt to check in every once in a while just to make sure thereís no paperwork issues.

thatís the most frustrating part for veterans especially those with mental issues, we fill the void of the unknown with negativity, funny how close we are in terms of expectations and yet no further ahead, I have a Tinnitus claim ( average wait time is supposed to be 17 weeks according to the wait time tool) - Iím step 3 double that amount in weeks waiting, l have a hearing claim ( average wait time 13 weeks), Iím at step 3 plus three times that in weeks waiting...l have a departmental review in for ptsd ( average wait time 13 weeks ) , Iíve been at step 3 for 26 so far,l try not to dwell on it, but I do keep track,

nice. When did you submit your reassessment..? I.e. on the myvac site (if you use it?), how long has your claim been at stage 3?

ah, I must have read it wrong, but have been a vet who had one disability but was reassessed to in fact have PTSD instead.

l read somewhere that when VAC is considering a vets PTSD reassessment that they front the vet 10% of the proposed settlement. Is this the same whether itís a reassessment of a Pre or post 2006 claim.? Also how long is the average wait for this drop in the bucket, if a normal claim takes 16+ weeks for a decision , letís say a vet submitted a claim for reassessment on Jan 1 2019, a decision in a perfect world would come in around May 1, but where in the timeline before that would he expect that 10%.?

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.

So unless you need urgent treatment for your condition OR you will be homeless due to needing money then you are unlikely to experience a quick turn around. We just have to be patient. And then decide who you want to vote for in 2019. Neither Conservatives or Liberals have done the right thing...
yes, but how long is too long, when VAC promises 16 weeks and itís 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.
