8 days for me. Overall, from the time I requested the Election for Lump Sum form to the time the lump sum amount was deposited in my account was fairly fast, as just a little over 2 weeks! That's considering and taking into affect that they will officially tell you it could take up to 6 weeks to receive the form and then up to 6 weeks for them to process it. It doesn't take that long if it's all done via electronically through My VAC Account. Here's how the process works for those new at this and believe me, I was asking these same questions a few years back when I had my first claim in...How long did it take for the lump sum election form to show up in your my vac account?
Affirmative. VAC will email you via My VAC Account when your lump sum payment has been processed. On my email from VAC they told me I would receive the deposit in 2 weeks, but I had mine just 2 days after which was surprising for sure lol.Wow so I still have to wait for the email for them to confirm it's processed before the payment shows up? Looks like I'm going to see the full 6 weeks on this one.
I see, guess ill look out for that. thanksAffirmative. VAC will email you via My VAC Account when your lump sum payment has been processed. On my email from VAC they told me I would receive the deposit in 2 weeks, but I had mine just 2 days after which was surprising for sure lol.
I spoke with a rep today he said it usually takes a week and a half but theyContacted VAC regarding the wait times, mine was submitted on the 23rd via myvac account. They said its processing and can take up to 6 weeks.
join the list lol the way I see it, is if you don’t see your deposit in 2 weeks or less you’ll be waiting the full 6 weeks !!Wow so I still have to wait for the email for them to confirm it's processed before the payment shows up? Looks like I'm going to see the full 6 weeks on this one.
Lol so after submitting my election for lump sum on March 18th vac calculated my payout incorrectly and sent me a new revised election form on April 15th lol so after a month of waiting for payment Im sent to the back of the line to wait another 6 weeks lolIt's frustrating seeing their wait time average coming down while a lot of longer claims are still not completed... talking about many many weeks past that estimated wait time...
RedGalaxy,Just received a new mail notice and on checking on My Vac I can see that the disability appliction I submitted in March 2019 for Fibromyalgia (consequential) is now showing "complete". I had been sitting at Stage 3 since May 2019 so about 23 months to get to this point
However, I don't have the actual decision letter yet. Anyone one know if they upload the decision letters to My Vac or whether they are simply mailed out (snail mail)? Its been two days and nothing has appeared in the My Vac new mail window? More waiting it seems ...
Thanks Ignatius. Much obliged!RedGalaxy,
You won't be waiting much longer. You should receive your Decision Letter electronically in your My VAC Account within a week if I was a bettin' man. You will also receive it in hard copy form by mail at a later date, shortly after that. You get it first electronically. Also, in case you were not aware...if you get a Favourable Decision and you Elect for Lump Sum payment, you have to email VAC to request the Election for Lump Sum option form. Once you receive it, open it and check the Elect for Lump Sum box and submit back to VAC for processing.
Not bad at all there blaze87! I had to call VAC yesterday actually to light a fire under their ass again as my Claim was just sitting idle on Step 2 since 7 months. I'm talking 7 months since VAC received the Medical form from my Family Doctor. VAC told me they will try to rattle the claims departments cages to get it moving. It should have been on Step 3 a long time ago.just got the email today regarding the upcoming payment. Submitted the form on March 23. so just alittle over 3 weeks most likely once deposit is in!
