What to expect starting VA claim


Registered Member
I have been active duty Army for 10 years, and am ETSing within the next 90 days. I have torn cartilage in my hip, that my PCM says will eventually require surgery to repair. From everything I’ve read, the VA process is slow, so I began my paperwork last month.

Once I filled out the paperwork the VA guy told me I’d have to have a physical/ tests through the VA but that they likely wouldn’t schedule any of that for “several months”. And that I should just wait for them to call. Is that par for the course?

Any advice on what I should expect, or what I should do in the meantime would be appreciated.
