Timing of Benefits after an Appeal

November 2, 2023
Question

If I win my case at the Court, when can I expect to receive my benefits?

Answer

The most common outcome at the Court is a "remand," which means your case will be sent back to the Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA) for further review and follow up. Cases on remand at the BVA often get a decision more quickly than the previous time around; however, it may still take several months before any benefits are received, and there is still the chance the BVA could deny your claim again or send it back to the Regional Office for additional follow up.

If your case is remanded back to the board, you can reach out the Veteran's Consortium Pro Bono Program to see if we can assist you on your case.
