I got a letter on February 4th that my remand is now in a ready to rate status and the very next day I got a letter stating that because of my Iris Inquiry my remand is currently pending a review for a rate decision on the conditions as listed on my remand. Does that mean I'm granted benefits and am just waiting for a rate decision?
No. All any of this means is that the VA system of tracking what's up with your claim or appeal is badly broken and they really have no clue what stage it's at. Wait for the letter in the mail, that's where the answers are.
