How long will it take for ATF to adjudicate my claim?

ATF thoroughly reviews all submitted claims and seeks to fully adjudicate all claims within six months after receipt. If ATF has not adjudicated your claim within six months, you may elect to treat the claim as having been denied and file suit in an appropriate U.S. District Court. 28 U.S.C. § 2675(a).
