   Some Disability claims take over 125 days to process    

Former infantryman Bosco Albert Baracus tried to use his Post-9/11 GI Bill for college but had difficulty concentrating on his studies and began having frequent nightmares. He submitted a Fully Developed Claim for PTSD, but decided to add another contention for lower back pain 102 days later. 

Once VA received Mr. Baracus' new contention, his rater determined that he would also need an examination to further evaluate his lower back, pushing his claim's decision beyond 125 days from when he first submitted it.
