Good afternoon. I am waiting on my supplemental claim results from the VA. Nothing has updated in e-Benefits and on va.gov it the status shows that the VA has made a decision (under the status tab) and under the issues tab it says "currently on review - compensation issue". Has anyone seen this and know what it means? Many thanks! Heather
