Re: how long from WRITERS...?

I have heard different answers to this question. Sometimes they can get it settled quick and put through. Other times it takes 30 to 60 days to get it answered. I really hope they get something figured out for you. I really think you got approved though.

I think you got approved also. funny how we have a time limit when we fill things out but they don't. They certainly don't play fair at all.

Re: how long from WRITERS...?

If you had a hearing and an on the record (OTR) bench decision wasn't made at that point in time they say that it takes 90-120 days to get the decision. Considering mine was an OTR, it still took 60 days for the actual written decision to arrive in the mail.

I agree that if they didn't question the voc expert, it's a possibility the decision was already made in your favor because if they were to deny and not have called the voc expert, it gives you definite grounds for appeal.

I wish you luck and patience.

I think it is a matter of time you will know for sure, and i agree with the others, it probably is a approval
