I was wondering do PTSD-MST claims take longer to process:
Original file date 10/2020
Denied – Never given a C&P
Had C & P 5/11 – (Great doctor with LHI) VA-reopened the claim-Went to Preparation for Decision – Same Day, also, (this statement appeared next to my claim “PSTD-MST-Reopened-do not Delete”)
In addition, since the quote above was attached to my claim – do you think I stand a good chance of being rated PTSD-MST?
Have been waiting since 5/11
I’m Just curious if PTSD-MST takes longer to process – the messages on ebenefits and va.gov read – we do not need any more information from me. I last uploaded some information on 5/2021.
I believe I qualify under the 70%, but also, have items from the 100% as well. How would they determine my rating with me having some of each of the two categories?
Last but not least, my official filing date was 10/2020 but the claim was reopened by the VA on 3/2021- will I receive back pay from 10/2020 or 3/2021?
Thanks for any advice!
