    VAC wait times

    My application went to Stage 3 and was suspended on 2 occasions. The last time my application was at Stage 3 for 85 weeks before it was suspended as VAC Dr did not agree with diagnosis. Neurologist sent proof of diagnosis and I am now at Stage 3 for 33 weeks. My understanding from discussion...

    My claim was at 84 weeks when it was suspended as VAC medical disagreed with my doctors diagnosis without ever even examining or talking to me. I got confirmation of my doctors diagnosis from a specialist and my claim is now back at step 3. Claim was initiated in 2016.

    Interesting how they calculate that. My application was submitted in 2016 and is at Stage 3 for the 3rd time as they suspended it twice. It does appear that things are improving as the Wait Time took a big drop this week and more people seem to be getting their applications settled.

    The letter from VAC specifically says that the Doctor consulted by VAC did not agree with the diagnosis provided by my doctor.

    From the explanation from VAC they did not lose the paperwork. The Medical Consult doctor from VAC did agree that there is a medical condition but did not agree with my Doctors diagnosis. I now have to go back to my doctor and have him refer me to a specialist to confirm diagnosis. I am really...

    Yes my doctor completed their forms. A VAC Benefit Officer even sent me a secure message on My VAC ACCOUNT indicating she had contacted my doctor and confirmed the diagnosis and that my file was proceeding to decision level Step 3.

    So after 87 weeks at Step 3 my Disability Application was Suspended. This the second time that my application was suspended as I originally submitted in October 2016 and it was Suspended. I was told to resubmit and did so in March 2018. When I called them today to find out why my application was...

    VR vs 3B (Being told because I have an awarded claim from a SDA I can just VR)

    I do not believe that you would receive the same benefits. Under 3B your pension indexes immediately where as under VR you need age & years of service to equal 85. If I could go back I would have waited for 3B instead of just retiring. I had a job offer at the time and did not want to turn it...

    I submitted in Aug 2016. VAC Suspended my application and I had to resubmit. Resubmitted March 2018 and Step 3 Nov 2018. 86 weeks later and still waiting. All of this and I had a doctor diagnosis and VAC had already acknowledged from a previous application that it is Svc related.

    I am at 86 weeks and can't get a straight answer from VAC on why it is taking so long.

    I contacted VAC 7 weeks ago and they informed me that they were working on files from SEPT 2018. I contacted them again last week and the response was exactly the same word for word. I have been at Step 3 since Nov 2018. 85 weeks. Staff edit to fix quote box

    Interesting. I contacted VAC on 5 May 2020 and was told at that time they were processing claims from September 18. Seems like they have not accomplished much in the last month. I am not surprised as I am now 80 weeks at Step 3.

    VAC wait times

    I agree that the Wait Time tool is very frustrating. It is an average of the completed files for the last 90 days. The question that I have never been able to get an answer for is why some files are can take 80+ weeks while others are completed much earlier. Once a file is sent to adjudication...

    VAC wait times

    There is absolutely no excuse for a decision to take 86 weeks. And then to be denied so you know that to appeal it will likely be another 18 months by the time you can get dr appts and resubmit paperwork and wait for a decision. Govt is throwing money around to everyone and anyone but I have yet...

    I also wonder whose applications are being completed in less than 58 weeks. I am currently at 75 weeks and don't see my application as being all that complicated. It was Veteran Affairs that told me to submit the application after I submitted a reassessment for an approved claim. They advised me...

    Frustrating part is waiting years for a decision that you will likely have to appeal, which will take another 1.5 years in order to get benefits.

    Harley, That is ridiculous. I am at 74 weeks and thought that was bad.
