    Thanks for your response, broncovet. You are absolutely right. I will to wait for the final decision. But your response gave me a much-needed laugh, thanks.

    What happened to my Dependent award>

    This morning, I checked ebenefits and it was still at waiting for decision approval. I just checked it again and now it says, "Prep for notification." So I decided to check my awards and it stayed the same at 90 percent with the award date of 2015. I then checked my dependent award and it has disappeared. It now lists my dependent but it said, "dependent not on award" where they use to be on it. So my question is, did I get denied? Awarded but ebennies not updated yet, and what happened to my dependents? I'm confused. Can anyone shed a light on this? Thanks.

  5. I had a claim for adding my mother as a dependent from August 2016.. Today ebenefits listed her as a dependent but no receiving compensation. I'm guessing that mean it was denied. No changes in anything else and it's in prep for notifications. I hope yours will turn out better. I wonder why they would list her as a dependent if they denied her.

    Is traumatic brain injury the same as PTSD when it comes to filing for a VA claim? The VA inferred TBI in my claim and awarded me 40 percent for sustaining trauma to my head. I want to file for PTSD for a non combat stressor that I can prove. Will the VA combine the two?

  8. He everyone. I got increased from 80% to 90% over two weeks ago. With an effective date of 12/1/15. This last payday I still got paid 80%. Did the VA make an error or do I not understand their pay system? Thanks

    Well that is disheartening. Utilizing the calculator, I'm at 87.4. I guess even if I appeal my hearing and tinnitus, it wont help. One other question, How do I change my title? I am not a E-2 recruit. I was a SGT in the Army and spent 8 years in it. Thanks again

    How do I find out what my raw score is? My ratings are per VA letter are 50% Migraine 40% TBI 40% TMJ 30% PID In real math that is 160, so I am not sure what my raw score is. Thanks for your reply.
  11. Hello everyone, I filed a claim back on November 30th 2015 for Tinnitus, Hearing loss, Vertigo, facial fracture, TMJ and migraine. A month ago, I received a rating of 80 percent and had 4 contentions deferred. Today I received an additional 10 percent for Migraines, rated at (50%) which brought me up to 90 percent. I was denied service connection for hearing, tinnitus and Vertigo. What I did not expect is they inferred a claim of Traumatic Brain injury, (From a motor vehicle accident and domestic violence) for me and awarded me 40 percent for that and 30 percent for a etopic emergency surgery I had forgotten about and 40 percent for TMJ. In the award for TBI they included the vertigo symptoms. I guess that is a way for them to save money. In any event all that total 90 percent. My question for everyone is, how difficult will it be to try for 100%. If I appeal the non service connection for hearing and tinnitus what will I need to strengthen my claim? I was in communications for my MOS, exposed to noise everyday and I thought it would be an easy claim. Also I was contemplating fighting the vertigo denial. Can I do that if they included the symptoms for the TBI? Thank you for your time. SGT US Army, 8 Years, Not a recruit. Anyone know how to change that title?
