  1. By the way, yes they must process your partial grants before the remanded issues.
  2. That is what they have been telling me for the last 3 months. Two days ago I called the AMC and told them to connect me with the Service Manager.... He looked into it and presto....E- Benefits now shows my correct ratings and I will be getting the retro within a week or two he said. The problem he said is one of communication within. The audit on mine was complete but not forwarded to the authorization official. Until you get the manager on the phone your case will stagnate right where it is.
  3. Same situation here. BVA Partial grant Jul 24 Still waiting for the RO to issue a Rating Decision, and pay the Retro. 9 Years is not long enough for them to screw with you.
  4. I heard only VSO's have access to the VBMS and can review decisions. Attorneys can't. The ratings were done on Aug 28th and the attorney fee has been withheld since Sept 10. Right now I am just waiting for a rating decision and retro deposit which should have came at the same time the attorney fee was withheld. I am being told that my case is still sitting in the attorney fee coordinators office waiting for transfer back to the AMC for final authorization. Just sitting there over 2 months waiting to be transferred.

This is unacceptable. You shou
  6. BVA only establishing service connection. There is nothing for me to appeal except the ratings and EED that will be coming from the RO. They got me unnecessarily waiting 120 days despite the fast letter. VA Perpetuating the Backlog.
  7. Still no rating decision, no retro, no update in e-benefits. BVA Granting service connection Jul 24 Ratings done Aug 28th Sep 10. Attorney Fee Eligibility Determination estimated completion date: Nov 29 Seems they are ignoring the fast letter and waiting for the 120 day appeal period lapse to implement.

  8. Seems the 20% attorney fee is only covered to the date of the NOD, since they are not allowed to charge for services prior to the filing of an NOD. example: Claim filed in 2010 NOD Filed 2013 Claim Awarded 2018 with EED 2010 Attorney Fee is 20% to 2013 date of NOD
  9. Thanks for the info Bronco. Ratings were completed Aug 28th. So far no deposit, no rating decision. I think there is a difference in respect to Attorney Fees for NOD filed after 2007: If the NOD was received on or after June 20, 2007, the finance activity must withhold an assessment from the attorney/agent’s payment. Not sure what "withhold an assessment" means, obviously a delay of some sort.
  10. Hard to believe no one ever asked what this is or how it works. Kept in the dark about EVERYTHING, until it is complete, despite the fact that an attorney fee has absolutely no bearing on what your final ratings are. Any idea how long VA will force me to look at this status?
  11. Just to let everyone know EBenefits is Administered specifically to keep you in the dark and make you angry. Information from Ebenefits Remanded Appeal Your appeal has been sent back for further development by the Board to the Appeals Management Center or to the office that made the original decision on your case. Information from Vets.gov Issues Currently on appeal Remand Service connection, post-traumatic stress disorder Service connection, emphysema Service connecti
  12. Update. Had hearing March 13, 2018 for 9 contentions Transcripts made of record June 9, 2018 Decision July 24, 2018 So about 4 months from hearing to decision and I had 9 contentions.
  13. The VARO's need to go away, along with all VAMC's. Biggest waste of tax payer money there is.
