I’m getting more and more anxious and annoyed with how long my case has been at the VA compared to other people in this forum I check ebenefits and vets.gov at least 3 times a day and every single time it’s the same thing, gathering of evidence still. It’s been there a month and I really just wish they would finish the ratings and send it back already since I know it’s backed up at the PEB. I just really want to be able to plan for the holidays on whether I’ll be out by then or if I should take leave or not. Even calling the VA they don’t seem to understand that it’s not a normal claim and that it’s an IDES claim so the guy tried telling me they were waiting on my DD-214 to finish the claim. My claim might be a little more complex than others but holy shit I’m ready for this process to be over already.
