Disability Application staus at stage 3

Post by Bigbrook on Tue 06 Jun 2017, 18:36

I have an application submitted for a back problem and have been told it is at stage 3. Can anyone tell me anything about stage 3. Is it good to get to this level or is this routine

I believe stage three means your application is currently in progress.

Step 3
Your assessment / reassessment is at the decision making level. All your supporting documentation was received on such in such a date (My VAC account provides the exact date of when all documents were received). We strive to provide a decision within 16 weeks, however, we are currently experiencing a higher than normal volume of requests ( once past the sixteenth week, is when I give them a shout.)
But, "No worries!" As long as your file is on "step 3",  (sitting somewhere on someone's desk) it'll be completed just in time for you to appeal their decision and wait another 100 years for care, compassion and respect...


This is the step you are looking forward to seeing:
Complete

Your assessment/reassessment for disability benefits has been completed. If you have not received a decision letter, you can expect one shortly.
Best of luck, (which is an oxymoron) who needs luck dealing with VAC, especially with mental and physical wounds.
Take care of those who take care of you, "without hesitation!"

i have 4 outstanding claims in that i put in 11 may last year did not get entered into the system until mid june last year they been sitting at stage 3 for many months and according to vac they are currently working on first time claims from last june so i should get an answer soon so i would say some claims can go real quick like hearing and tinnitus that i put in this year have already been dealt with but claims like side effects of a claim can take a year to get an answer. hopefully this will not be the case for others but has been the case for me

I don't think they do them in any actual order. I submitted last August, went to Step 3 in December and got my award letter 29 March this year. So if you go by the logic that they are working on last June, I shouldn't have seen anything for a few more months yet...
