  1. Just thought I would put this out there for everyone with regards to VA claims questions, etc. So far, this is how my timeline has went. Not sure if it helps anyone or not. My regional office is Nashville, TN. I am currently awaiting further information. My understanding from reading the prior post is the VA authorizer is the final step. Can anyone elaborate on this??? 10/16/2012 → New Claim Filed ↓ 4/12/2013 → C&P Exam ↓ Claim Closed 9/28/2013 Awarded 10% (Atypical Chest Pain / Palpitations) – Appeal Possible ↓ 10/4/2013 → Retroactive Pay Received ↓ Appeal Filed 2/11/2014 (Fibromyalgia, IBS, GERD) → Received by VA on 2/14/2014 ↓ VA Acknowledged 2/19/2014 enclosed (VA Form 21-4138 to choose DRO or Traditional Appeal) ↓ DRO Choice Submitted on 2/25/2014 ↓ Follow up C&P Exam on 5/14/2015 (Fibromyalgia, IBS, GERD) ↓ 6/9/2015 → Decision Made → 7/2/2015 Statement of Case Completed ↓ 7/13/2015 → Spoke with VA Rep. According to his computer screen, I have received the following: 40% Awarded for Fibromyalgia; 30% Awarded for IBS; 0% Awarded for GERD. Total Disability Awarded at 60% (inc. the 10% already received) – Retroactive to 10/16/2012 @ 50% since they have already been paying me 10%. Indicated it could be 6 – 8 weeks before retroactive pay hits bank. Should begin to receive 60% on 8/1/2015 ↓ 7/17/2015 → Spoke with VA Regional Office. Per support specialist: Your SOC is currently in the final stages waiting for approval by a VA authorizer. Your claim's status may change if additional information is required. At this time, it is estimated that your claim should be completed by 8/23/2015. Please understand that this date is an estimate and that your claim may take longer based on the specifics of your claim and VA's pending workload. ↓ As of 7/27/2015 there is no changed on E-Benefits to disabilities and/or benefit letter.
  2. Just have a quick question. Gulf War Veteran. Awarded only 10% disability in Oct 2013. Appealed with DRO choice in Feb. 2014. Just had my exam for the 3 denied claims in May 2015 (this is about 450 days from when I appealed the decision). I see now where the ebenefits website for appeals status is down until September. Can't get anyone on the phone. Most the time, can't chat with anyone online. Does anyone know the best way to find out a status? Also, does anyone know (since it's been about 450 days) when I might actually get a decision on the 3 denied claims. My claim would be in Nashville, TN Thanks
