We have been waiting almost 6 years for our hearing. The notice we received on Ebenefits says a decision was made and our file was being sent to VAMC and we would get a decision in the mail. Being new to this I wanted to know if that is generally a good sign or not. I guess it is better than going back to the local office. The judge from the travel board seemed rather outraged that we had to wait this long in the first place and our rep seemed very positive that it would go our way. Also if you do get approved how long does it take to get the back payment? Thanks! And Happy Veterans Day to all who are and have served. God Bless you!!
