    Attorney Fees Claim? Ebenefits

    Can’t really give a guess as we all have had this if we won are appeal or claim. It’s the step to process your attorney cut of your retro it took my claim at the time 10 days but I had a hardship flagged on my claim so I cannot guess your time. You can try calling the the 1800 to see what’s the hold up or even go as far as going to your RO and asking in person either one will get you a more accurate guess.
  2. Well I’ll get my answer tomorrow from the Caregiver program about my application and my aid and attendance claim is still in preparation for a decision filed way before I submitted my claim for the caregiver...
  3. As far as my appeals concerned I had more info were my appeal was in the process then in ebenefits... they should be the same on both but not always the case.
  4. I went with the FDC since I didn’t use a VSO must have missed this memo before I started. Thanks for the info
  5. My issue was I got tired off fighting with the Va saying My ptsd and tbi should be separate. I lost this battle instead the va hospital sees 100% ptsd and the VA disablity says it’s my residuals of a tbi with ptsd. I get mad at the hospital when my records don’t even show my sTBI but I’m p and t so not sure I cant complain and have no idea what I’d be fighting for
  6. Yes I am most due to my cognitive impairment and having no short term memory with lapses and blackouts all being evaluated by the VA. I’m 100 p and t based on the residuals alone and my secondary migraines are at 50 with lightheadedness and dizziness at 30% also I find out to day if I was accepted into the caregiver program as I have been in my Vas polytrauma program for 2 years...which isn’t a requirement but it helps to have all my treatment records for the director to look at...
  7. Not sure how fast these claims actually move does it Actually move quicker? I only have a claim in for aid and attendance with a Exam and the 21-2680 filled out by my VA doctor.
  8. So I imagine the DRO would be a good speedy method for an EED claim but if the retro is a large amount won’t they still just deny it? Just asking bc that sounds like a good way to appeal EED

    Just took my C&P Exams

    Where are you at in your claim?
  10. But why is it when the VA says we will call you on Friday with our answer you start to laugh in your head. Wait that’s what they told me and my wife so my wife calls at the end of the day and leaves a VM, to see if we had any news. The coordinator was nice and said to both of us we should most definitely should be getting help I just hate when they tell you a date and always miss it every time it’s sad but expected....
  11. Good info and the originator did not specify many other details if they could post the report we could give a better guess
  12. So I am asking about Space A travel details? I was told that it’s only for the disabled veteran and not his spouse or dependents? Seems odd to say to a disabled vet yes you can fly away but only by yourself and not your spouse.
  13. Same here I wish we’re able to figure out the algorithm they use. So to know what’s going to bounce claims backwards after months of preparation for a decision...
  14. The woman in charge of the program has been relocated to another program, and magically the program starts working for the hospital again...
