Anyone dealing with the VA?

My husband is seeking benefits with them, and it has been a long process! Anyone else going through this now, and if so how long have you been fighting with them?

  • It took me around 4 months from my C&P exam to get an answer. Once I got rated, I received back pay from the day I filed my claim. It all depends on the area. As far as benefits go, I was given an ID card and told I could use them for my primary care and they gave me information on how much my prescriptions would cost. I haven't used them because I have Tricare.

  • I have an uncle who was trying to get VA benefits for 7 years and he finally got it.

  • I should also note that my husband gets compensation, but its disputing it. How long does an appeal take?!?!
