After eight and a half months of sheer frustration, I am asking if the SPVA is fit for purpose. In Dec last year I submitted a claim for a war pension, along with medical report from a professor and a counsellor who deal with Chronic PTSD, I attended an ATOS medical, and gave them reports from my GP about the medication I am on. This month, they inform me that they are returning the reports for signatures and qualifications to be added before they can consider the claim. (8 and 1/2 months after first receiving them) As I had kept copies I showed them to my MP clearly showing the signatures and qualifications on these reports, he concluded that the SPVA were in his words, Incompetent and a few other choice expletives. I have just been informed that the average waiting time for a claim to be concluded is now 10 months and that is if they don't want any more information from you, what a waste of space. ANY COMMENTS ANYONE.
