I checked the BVA website to see if there had been any progress on my appeal and discovered I no longer have appeals pending at the Board. Two decisions are to be announced tomorrow and one was decided a year ago on May 4th, 2011. As most know, the BVA releases all decisions on appeal simultaneously rather than piecemeal. The site says they are en route to my VAMC for “development”.

P.S. Update Thursday 0900. I called BVA and they have mailed the decision out already. I expect to receive it Saturday or early next week. I’l publish it here regardless of how ugly it might be. I’m an optimist so I believe it’ll be a win on all four counts-Back/hips 1989 CUE , HCV/PCT EED and Tinnitus EED from 1994. So what if I lose. That’s what the CAVC was invented for.

    does anyone know how long it takes for a decision from a bva judge

    • asknod says:

      The decision occurs within 15 months from the time they receive it. Unless…they remand it for more info or… they get more evidence from you. My hearing was April 5th, 2011. The decision was May 11th, 2012. I received it May 19th.

    So soon?

    I bet you were driving a Galaxy 500 when you filed.

    One was decided a year ago? Nice to see that someone was on the ball (sic) and let you know. Not surprised though. I’ll keep my fingers crossed but not the toes cause they are cramping too bad right now.

      VA is anal and only wants to cut down trees for pulp once. Thus they assemble all the appeals and send out one decision on all of them. See why it might be a bad idea to load up the claimboat with 5 or ten of them?
