    Withdraw a claim on ebenefits?

    I have a claim pending with a C&P scheduled for Tuesday morning I made a mistake and filed an additional claim on Friday and then got this message on my new claim (#2) about it being consolidated with the other claim: Important Message About Consolidated Claims Additionally, to add to my screwups, I accidently uploaded the wrong civilian medical form to this new claim. I see I can add the correct form after the fact but I prefer to just delete the claim and let my original one be processed on it's own. I have been all over ebenefits trying to see how to delete a claim but I dont see how to....any tips? Thanks

    retired v VA comp in ebenefits ?

    No real reason, "thats just what you do" I wondered if she was confusing the paper form with what ebenefits is asking.

    retired v VA comp in ebenefits ?

    Hi everyone! 80% and filing another claim. I get to this on ebenefits....ummm,Not sure what to click. 22 years active retired, already above 50% disability. I am sure I am overthinking it. Side note: i filed for an increase for a claim that was awarded, i uploaded the dbq from civilian doc and a statement from myself and my increase went thru in less than 6 days. Wow Btw, 2 vso's and 1 yes and 1 no The question in text format: Do you want to receive VA compensation instead of military retired pay? if it is determined you are entitled to both benefits and you want to receive VA compensation instead of military retired pay, select Yes. If you are awarded military retired pay prior to VA compensation , we will reduce your retired pay by the VA compensation amount. VA will notify the Military Retired Pay Center of all benefit changes. If you receive both military pay and VA compensation , some of the amount you get may be recouped by VA, or, in the case of VSI, by the DOD. Thank you in advance
  6. Hello, I dropped my retirement paperwork yesterday with a terminal leave date of 3 January. It felt great btw. Normally a soldier in my area goes thru fort Knox and the dva rep there. My appointment with the dva rep is for 30 Nov and he said the va physical probably won't happen until 8 weeks after that. I will be starting a new job in Ohio and really hate the thought of trying to take time off to drive back down to Louisville after I am out. this is the bbd program. Would you guys still go with this bbd program via fort Knox or just do it myself via ebenefits and use the va in Ohio? The benefit to going to Louisville is that the va doc will be used to working with retiring/separating soldiers. I heard the doctor who does your physical makes all the difference in the world. Some guy said you could walk in missing a leg and the doc might say "well you can walk, your not disabled" Any thoughts? Thanks
  7. heck, my back is like a 2 by 4. it is kinda funny unflexible i am now. thanks!
  8. I have terrible Range of Motion in my back. I cannot even touch my knees. My doctor says my hamstrings are just tight. I do have some lower back discomfort. Is this even worth mentioning with the VA when I get out? Thanks!
  9. That was the reason for the question about IME's. I am assuming that I should complain about any little thing that bothers me right now so that if it gets worse later I have documentation for later....correct? Thanks again, this site is awesome. I dont understand the process yet but this site is making it easier.

    IME in Ohio

    Anybody get an IME from a doc who understands VA rules in Ohio that they would recommend? I am retiring from active duty soon Thanks
  11. Hello, I am retiring from Active Duty within the next 6 months. I have lots of small issues that I have started to document on a piece of paper and some I have visited the doctor for in the past. I don't have many medical visits because I am an Army pilot and I basically hid all my medical issues so I could keep flying. Question: since Service Connection is not an issue is there any benefit of visiting a Independent Medical Doctor to document my medical conditions prior to filing with the VA? Doctors such as these: http://www.veteranslaw.com/veteran-independent-medical-examination-IME or http://www.craigbashmd.com/helpful The list of things wrong with me are the following: Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma (in remission), Ankle pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, back pain, neck pain, Mortan's neuroma (surgery but still hurts), Raynauds I live in the Midwest (Ohio, Michigan area) Thanks in advance!
