Think I forgot one but didn't include the denials... 3 or 4.

My memory (?) tells me I recall since a 16 week letter was 2 -4 months.
I remember chompin' on the bit, casing out the mailman (shoot the messenger) and the mailbox. All in good time cosmo 2 - 4 months and don't look at the calender too too much it drove me nuts. pinger.

Hey Pinger I was the same way. After about 12 weeks I was waiting for that postie every day getting more and more anxious every day. I called my CM and asked her to advise me when it was a done deal and she did. Total time 14 weeks in 2012.

thanks guys for the input, it is very depressing to ear - called a few time and they make you feel pretty cheap like a bs sometimes. Well nothing i can do about it. I really like this forum - we help eachother - i will keep you posted for my turnaround time. For my PIA it was very fast (3 weeks). Will see I am going at the 4 weeks mark. Take care guys and Rock the Hill :-)

Yes, the so called reduced wait times of 16 weeks, is just more bureaucratic smoke and mirrors. Under the Pension Act, VAC had a 24 week to provide an answer, and that clock started from the day you contacted VAC to inform them of a disability, even if by phone. My first pensioned condition was back dated to the day I called and requested a disability application be mailed out to me, and I still received my answer within 5 months. Now compared to my last application under the NVC, it took over 43 weeks, only to be denied, because the 16 weeks only starts when your file is sent to HQ, and there is no set timeframe for the regional offices to send the file.
And this was before they fired a bunch staffers and closed the offices, adding several thousands of clients to my regional office.
