Ab4, Ab7, And Ab8 Letters No Longer Listed On Ebenefits


All of my AB__ letters have been taken of the Ebenefits letter generator. The only item that is viewable is my address information.

Can someone give me an idea why this has happened.

Thank you in advance!

Called the VA Ebenefits Desk asking why all of my benefits verification letters were removed and they informed me that;

1. Maybe I was using an outdated operating System. I informed them that my Veteran friend and I used the same Computer System and that his letters were available.

2. The representative then stated that my VA Regional Office may have removed the documents to make an update, but has no idea why all of the veification documents would have to be removed.

I called the VARO and asked them if they new why all of my Benefits Verification Letters have been removed and they informed me that my Claim was with the VARO Appeals Team and that I would have to submit an IRIS inquiry.

AGAIN! Has anyone on this site ever had ALL of their Benefits Verification Letters removed from Ebenefits at the same time. I do recall reading on this site that the AB8 is often removed for updating, but never the AB4 and AB7.

Any Feedback will be greatly appreciated!

Mine are all there. But, sometimes the system is just stupid and you have to wait it out. Not an easy take, but that has happened to me as well.

Sounds like some action is going on - try to chill and give it a week or so -

or send the iris.

    • I get 50% rating  for my headaches and I am a 100% pt vet.Every year they schedule me an appointment to ask me about my headaches and keep giving me different pills to try to correct my problem but nothing seems to help me.I do not want to keep taking more pills for these headaches,do I have to keep going for these appointments or can I just stop going.
    • 21-0581? It's an auto form sent every eight years. You can respond with that or 21-686c- If you don't they'll take your dependent(s) off your award and you'll get a nifty little letter from Debt Management Center- back to when the last dependency form was submitted. People neglect to take off their ex, so that form kinda prevents you from getting a massive overpayment.
    • Your award will say: CH35 Dependent's Educational Assistance
    • I sent the info to my VA claim reps.. not sure if they are of any help yet... who knows.. *sigh   for those that don't know what it's like to be harranged, questioned, grilled, and have some inept intern jumping up and down on your stomach with pancreas disease is horrific pain, even with morphine.. it is very painful to talk... because the muscles you use for everything  use muscles in the stomach area... moving walking breathing are all extremely painful... and they want you to explain what it's like to spend 1/2 your life in hell.... they write that down and send it to some clerk with no medical training... 3rd time around! why?? why?? why?? why?? the surgeons talked me everyday for 6 months as inpatient, boxes and boxes of va medical records, and a 3rd time at some clinic for questions and exam again, they can't see anything from outside the body! They can only interrogate me, and poke me!!! Every year they (VA) catscan the pancreas and disease cysts and diseased arteries to my liver and heart. the cysts are pre-cancerous that line my dying pancreas, necrotized pancreas. also have budd-chiari syndrome. Not enough blood gets through the liver to the heart because the arteries and veins are diseased. So, I am very limited on physical activity and the veins break and often lead to death if the wrong ones break. often, I pee straight blood, but if I vomit blood it means I am dying because of those veins can't stop the bleeding  by the stomach. Was tube fed 6 months without the ability to eat or drink. isn't that enough?
    • EODCMC, I can certainly help you with this. Awarded SA claim came through for me this summer.  I too was diagnosed on AD, but didn't get a Bipap until 2 years ago.  Took VBA another 1.5 years to award claim, and I was successful through Board of Vet Appeals.  I did a few things to prepare for BVA while they were gathering eveidence. #1 was I researched similar claims that BVA had awarded/granted compensation for the vet with SA.  There are hundreds of similar case to ours.  Then I had my Sleep doctor sign a nexus letter after he reviewed my military records and he concluded that SA was diagnosed and symptoms were the same / worse than when I was on AD.  Show disease progressed.  I send in letters to the Regional office handling my case by uploaded through eBenefits.  #3, I went through my military med records and found each time I complained to a doctor about symptoms of SA.  Put all that into another letter and uploaded to my claim.  Well worth the effort.   As for going to the VA sleep clinic, they wouldn't touch me until VBA granted SA claim.  I did read somewhere that after your awarded you can do a claim for the part tri-care didn't pay for your machine.  Sleep lab may be able to help you with that info, or maybe Prosthetics department.   Best wishes
