  7. I filed to remove my ex wife they sent a stop of payment the very next month I did it on ebenefits august 4th.. my claim completion date is Estimated Completion: 05/15/2017 - 03/04/2018 ... I remember when claims took 2 years but I guess the first date has been shortedned then what first applied just looked at it again.. I know each Va office takes a different amount of time. I was out of Norfolk VA and maybe I should have waited but i just updated my address to Jamaica tonight so i dont know if that is going to add time. I would appreciate If anyone knows estimate of current claim times.. I uploaded the divorce paper work and we do not have children i read online that those should be quick if dont through ebenefits. Thanks for help and advice.
  8. Berta, Hello I know you are one of the experts on this site and maybe you can help me.  I am going to be getting married in Jamaica to a non us citizen. I am current 100 pt and wanted her to be able to use the chapter 35 benefits for school.  I called the 1800 number twice yesterday and two people told me she needs a social but could not or would no tell where they are getting this information.  I just called again and another guy actually tried to look it up and could not find any information and was not sure and told me to try and get a letter from social secuirty saying she can not get one.  I was wondering if you have heard about this and if it is possible thanks

  9. I do not plan on bringing her to the states at this time so we are not filing the paper work.. I am hoping someone has had this issue and can let me know if i can add a dependant withou a social security number.
  10. I am Getting married to a jamaican citizen in a few weeks.. I just called the 1800 number and the lady said that she will need a social security number to be added.. then she shaid she was not sure.. In jamaica they have a trn 9 digit number was wondering if i could put that? Has anyone been in this situation. I am 100 percent and she is in college and want to get her the chapter 35 benefits. If anyone knows anything about this please tell me. I am waiting for social security to call me back and see if we can get her one. We do not plan on filing for her citizenship at this time and are going to live in Jamaica
  11. Ok the Divorce is final I have uploaded and filed everything on ebenefits... but my claim date completion is one to two years.. Roanoke is my regional office is this correct. I am about to get married and want to file education benefits.
  12. I have heard of the SMC and kinda figured out some but what is this R.2/T What does it stand for. Who gets it and what do you get it for? Thanks it just seems crazy 8000 a month
  13. I would have to dig for the paper wo.rk but i remember what they said that there was no mention of depression or anxiety in my service record. It was back when claims took 2 years but when i refilled they sent me to an actual cp exam and the doctor found anxiety in my service record but mentioned lightly and said the depression at least likely as not secondary but he stated anxiety was direct service related.. but then they canceled that claim and i canceled my appeal filed again then third doctor said No for everything but i had my own doc write nexus letter to so I guess i had 2 docs say yes and 2 docs say no. I know this is confusing I'm going to get to a lawyer and see because this entire 4 year wait took a toll stressed to mess up to work and not sure i would win. Thanks for help i'm visiting family and wont be home for a while i'll try to upload if you still need to see it
  14. Ok i'm 100% now as of septermber 2015 but i was wondering my original claim I won sleep apnea and lost depression and anxiety. I filed an apeal for anxiety and depression and also filed a new claim depression anxiety secondary to sleap apnea. well 9 months went by and then they just closed my claim i called they said i had an appeal in for the same thing. I canceled my appeal refiled sleap apnea and depression secondary to sleap apnea and won. I took a break because all this has taken a toll on. me and i had been a 4 year battle because claims use to take 2 years. I think i should of won my original claim, is there anything I can do about this. thanks for all the advice
  15. Dam this really sucks because I have met someone new and i'm 100 percent disabled and want them to get the money for school and plan on getting remarried it sounds like this takes awhile.
