“For those appeals that were decided by the Board in FY 2016, on average, Veterans waited at least 6 years from the filing of the Notice of Disagreement until the Board decision was issued that year. The Board’s cycle time, which measures the average time from the date an appeal is certified (VA Form 8) to the Board until a decision is dispatched (excluding the time the case is with a VSO representative for review and preparation of written argument) was 253 days in FY 2016. The Board’s total time, which measures the average time from the date an appeal is certified (VA Form 8) to the Board until a decision is dispatched including the time the case is with a VSO representative for review and preparation of written argument, was 374 days in FY 2016.
The Board received 86,836 appeals in FY 2016.”
