So they no longer even give you a date of your hearing, in the past if you asked your CM to recommend you for DEC , the boards sat pretty fast and twice a week I think, so now a DEC decision is just like a disability claim wait 45 weeks min, wow

I’m not understanding the process you’re explaining. My understanding is DEC designation is decided by your. Case manager and a board, your Cm should be able to provide you with a date the board was sitting. After that date , the cm comes back from the hearing and will tell you instantly whether or not you qualified for DEC or not.

I was just told by the vocational rehab personnel they were submitting my paperwork for DEC, does anyone have any idea how long it takes for a decision? After I posted this I did some more digging into DEC, apparently decisions are to made expeditiously. I am sure their idea of expeditiously is not my idea of expeditiously...lol.
