    I receive my BVA decision letter and it states:

    ORDER

    "Service connection for acquired psychiatric disorder, to include PTSD and major depressive disorder is granted, subject to governing criteria applicable to the payment of monetary benefits."

    My question is does the rater include the specific PTSD symptoms as well as MDD symptoms combined noted in the C&P when making the rating decision for % of disability?

    MY BVA letter is dated 01/14/2014. Any idea on length of time the RO will take to finalize my claim and notify me?
    Thank you
