Prior to 01/03/2016, I would have agreed with Buck, regarding E-Ben being less than accurate as to Future Completion Dates. I've had (2) Awards in 16, E-Ben posted updates at Least (2) weeks before the Retro Hit.
In years past, Retro Hit about a min of 3 weeks before your Decision Letter Arrived, sometime after that, E-Ben was updated to reflect your New Award Info.
It definitely appears to me, somebody at E-Ben finally got their Sierra, Hotel, India, Tango together.
All of the original claims were denied of “The evidence does not show a current diagnosed disability” with the exception of the chronic sinusitis, which stated there was no event in service. He claimed no problems even though over 100 pages of civilian medical records for treatments showed otherwise.
In May of 2012 I sent back the following letter:
Notice of Disagreement (NOD)
I am in receipt of your letter of 11 April 2012. In that letter you have denied my application for a disability
rating I claimed 16 AUG 2011.
Please accept this letter as my Notice of Disagreement (NOD) with your decision.
My reason for this NOD is an incomplete CP exam was performed along with the examiner not reviewing multiple current civilian medical records and diagnoses.
I request a Decision Review Officer Process (DRO) appeal and I request a personal hearing.
I never did get a personal hearing but it turns out they did send a packet in Dec 2012/Jan2013. I did not remember this until I went through my files. Sorry about that - I really didn't think I had received back anything. Dangit - It really gets frustrating when you can't recall a lot of things. This head injury really screwed up my life!
It turns out they did send me a request additional data and I sent in a Statement in Support of Claim. I also did find a copy of the VA Form 9 requesting a hearing but it was only to appeal two of the original issues, and out of that the TBI was eventually rated.
I don't recall getting a docket number.
SO - false alarm. Again, my apologies for not recalling any of this. The only thing I need to worry about is having my existing ratings reversed, which I hope is safe because of all the documentation, including VA doctor letters. If anything, the TBI residue is more severe than what they rated and only gets worse every year.
Just did a quick read, did you say anything about your Direct Deposit Account getting Retro Deposit yet?
01/03/16, went on my E-Ben site for my yearly 100% IU T & P Confirmation Letter, to file for the yrly MI DAV Property Tax Exemption.
Much to my surprise, the Confirmation page now showed I was 100% Scheduler T & P and receiving $354?.00 per mos instead of the $31??.00 that was actually deposited 01/01/16. The Retro from the 12/15/15 Quality Control Award, hit my bank account about 2 weeks later.
If E-Ben now shows your at 100%, don't sweat the Development Letter Deal, just be sure your Direct Deposit Account is set to Txt/Email you in real-time regarding all Financial Transactions.
Buck, Pun intended, Quit Dicking around. Send the Secure Msgs requesting the ED DBQ to your PCP, Urologist and MH Clinician. Remember to give a Reader's Digest version of your ED Symptom Timeline.
You Officially file a request for their assistance on your MHV Secure Msg, the Request is Noted in your VMC Med Record within a couple days, as is their response to your Msg.
After you get the response, attach a copy to your ED FDC and hit the Submit Button. With your ED Issues discussion being in your respective VMC Clinician's Treatment Notes &/or the DBQs, an ED C & P should be unnecessary.
The SMC K Award would be added to your 100% Comp + SMC S (1) for a total of about $3545.00 per mos (Vet w/Wife).
