    I agree with Mr. Early's response. The VA has a statutory duty to work in the best interest of the veteran and it can certainly be argued that timely processing is a prime example of that. However, defining timeliness is an ongoing problem. Mr. Early is absolutely right to tell you to contact your senator or representative to assist you. They can often overcome hurdles that the general public cannot. Good luck to you.

    Tammy’s Answer

    It is possible that Social Security may claim an offset for monies that you earned in the U.K. and that were not paid into the Social Securtiy Disability fund.
