Gunner, something donít sound right. You should have at least moved to Step 2 when VAC sent you the medical questionnaire to be completed and then moved to Step 3 when the medical questionnaire was received back to VAC. Thatís how my applications proceeded.

For veterans affairs to do it that quickly it is amazing even for a reassessment.

Bosn181 and Art8 - I read your both stories here interesting!
Bosn181 -any news on your hearing loss claim?
Art8- from the time you made you initial Vac account disability claim for severe tinnitus until you had your LSA in hand was it only 9 weeks?

You would likely need to request a reassessment, which takes roughly the same amount of time as a new application.

Hi, does anyone know once you have the masking device for tinnitus if VAC bump you up another 5% automatically or I have to call them or else. I am assuming they should know about this because blue cross or VAC approved it †(they paid directly the hearing specialist). I was approved 6 % (5%+1%), then couple weeks ago got a masking device but they have not upgraded my disability to 11% yet

the tinnitus should be fine even if you put two or more in they should be looking at tinnitus separately, heres hoping it all goes good for you and you get the answers you need in a timely manner keep us updated and good luck my son.
