My IU claim has been in a Prep for Decision phase for what seems like forever. When it first hit that stage, I was told it would be completed in about 114 days (NYC Regional Office timeframe). It was about 2 weeks overdue and I decided to check with the 1000 folks today to ascertain the status. I was told that my claim was moved from NYC to Ranoke, VA in June (even though I live and filed my claim in NYC). Anyone out there have had any dealings with Roanoke in the past and can give me an about time for this process to finally end? I guess this is just another way for the VA to screw us out of actual completion times. I had made an appointment with the NYC VA Regional office in early June to physically review my claims package during the 3d week of July. Guess I got screwed again!!!
