Wait times?

Probably dependant upon locale? Simple demographics.
The Prairies come Ontario or when and where the newly trained vac hired staff are distributed?
Nunavut come Toronto

I know it's hard to do, but don't hold your breath for jack squat.
I used to, but suffered for anticipating... Get a plan B, C, AND a D...

It does depend on what your waiting for though don't it ?

What...An initial DA application, a re-assessment, a departmental review, vrab.

All kinds of approaches. But 16 weeks ? Forget that bullshyte ! ! !

Welcome to csat Rusty. Lotsa good info and folks here

vet1234 are you talking about decisions on applications at the District Office level such as TPI?

Because best to my knowledge all decisions are made in PEI for all other applications. If true then all applications, including the Prairies, should be in the same time frame.

DA. Disability Award decisions. There should be no real wait for a TPI decision. If you have all the doc reports, your CM can bring it to the panel in your local office to make the decision within a week.

Mines a da decision with tpi ramifications if I get a favourable decision. They received all paperwork on sept 13. Here's hoping it's sorted sooner than later.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

I got pia grade 3 as well. I won't be back at work, been out since 2011 and my docs say no for me working. But that's not good enough for tpi etc. It sure is a mess

did they tell you that??
They told me I wasnt eligible. I read the policy and I was.
Don't take VACs word for anything!!
I requested my TPI decision and informed them of the relevant policy and was awarded.
You probably are eligible... just need to let them know what piece of policy they need to work with.
Any issues, or trouble finding the info, ask on the forum or PM me and I'll steer you in the right direction.

Steelgunner, I also submitted several claims in January of 2016.  The decision making for these three DA applications has been a Step 3 since late summer/early fall.  I have enquired on the My Vac account email about the delay (53 weeks now since original application) and I get a standard reply informing of the backlog.  I was told "to expect a decision in February or March".   With no firm date given by VAC, I believe they still do not know when the backlog will be cleared up otherwise they would have told me in XX number of weeks.

Hi Rustytheviking - You want to hear messed up. I was in the same wait period as you, for my TPI. My CM was useless. Someone on here told me in the wait period to put in for CPPD. I did, and told my CM. She said well if you get CPPD, that will be justification for TPI. 4 months later I got CPPD, told her, sent my CPPD approval letter, and 2 weeks later was approved TPI. So it is different fm one Vet to another. Which is way wrong..Johnny Out,,VVV..

Newf,, the backlog is a huge stack of claims sitting on to few stafff members across VAC and  in PEI.  I final got my decision  in December for my punctured ear drum, 11 months for a simple award that they had all my info and medical from previous claims.  

One thing I did, I called them every month, asked for a manager and once I got that number I called and called. I mention my mental health issues, anexity, PTSD and feel that got there butts in gear.  Not 100% sure that helped but they should flag certain files in some sort of priority.  Not a fan of the squeaky wheel gets to the top of the pile but if ones situation demands action then I am all for it.  Like that Vet that needed help asking JT at his cross county love fest meetings which I hope at the end of the meetings  he wishes he never did them and realizes that a lot of Canadian citizens are hurting because of his slow actions in many areas not just the Veterans isssues that are being neglected and slow to come forward with a positive out come.

Excuse my ignorance, but I thought all da decisions went through Charlottetown? If they are regional doesn't that allow for unfair advantages/disadvantages?

Decisions go through Charlottetown. Gathering reports and data to make the decisions is regional.
