Since November, my claim had estimated date in February (forget exact date) and had been labled Pending Decision Approval, even before my exams were done.

They received my case for ratings on 8JAN but I think the status stayed almost exactly the same, estimated completion by February.

In February (when VA finally received the results of my last CP exam) I went back to Gathering Evidence and my estimated dates were pushed back to December 24.

On Monday, it advanced to Reviewing Evidence and the dates were moved up by 2 months to October 18. Checked this morning and it was the same.

Later in the day, my case was closed. Glean from that what you will. All it tells me is that the dates are not relevant to the specific case and are based on what status it happens to be in at the time. But when it can go from Reviewing Evidence straight to closed in less than a day, then it doesn't help much.

What about for Active Duty members going through the IDES program where they complete their C&P Exams prior to the VA starting the claim/rating process.

If it’s IDES it’s all the same dude . We’re in the same boat. But I’m glad he said that because this is absolutely ridiculous. The way we have to alter and worry about this is almost comical.

Makes sense... It's absolutely ridiculous we have to worry about such waiting game. Mines been in the Gathering Evidence stage for almost 2 months now... I'm hoping to see a closure randomly one day like Matt here. Guess we will see...

Yeah man , to be honest just because your VA stuff says one thing on like ebennies or VA.gov doesn’t mean it was really that date . Like for me mine says it was viewed nov 1 but my package from the unfit finds didn’t arrive until like feb 20th or something which is crazy.

Being AWO in Hawaii I suppose your with the P8?

Nah, currently shore duty. Attached to P-3c Orions before I lost flight status. P-8s are cool, but flying the P-3c was raw, thrilling, and nostalgic... loved every minute. Yeah, my VA closure date is predicted for July 24th, hope that is not the case since they recieved my claims in October.
