  1. 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
  2. I went online to EBenefits this morning to see if nothing changed after my C&P last month. It said claim closed and Decision letter sent. After checking around I found a 70% rating for PTSD and MDD and a 3/15/17 effective date which was when I filed my claim. I hadn't set up banking info yet so I did that. Some questions: 1. Will they mail a retro pay check since I didn't have banking set earlier? 2. I know I need to wait for the letter but is EBenefits usually accurate with the rating? 3. Is there a certain day of the month VA sends payments (Like social security is always at the start of the month) or is it the claim date each month? 4. Where can I find information on how my VA class will change? I was class 8 before (big copays). 5. I have a very good private therapist I'm paying for myself. Now that I'll have a rating will the VA pay for him or do they only cover their own therapists? Thanks for the help! JW
  3. so my claim was submitted on 12/12/2016. I submitted for bipolar/depression (reopen) and tinnitus (new). I sent it in as an FDC with all my evidence. I checked ebenefits on 12/21/2016 and the status is already showing preparation for decision. Is this normal? I haven't even gone to a c&p exam, I haven't recieved any correspondences or anything. For the bipolar depression it is a reopen because when i first filed in 2011, I missed my appointment. After I missed my appointment, the VA sent me papers (back in 2011) saying that they see that i was treated for depression during active duty. but since i failed to show up to the appointment, it was denied. So now i've sent a ton of new evidence that supports my claim and they've reopened the case. But does the speed with which this is progressing means that i am being denied? As noted below, ebennies is showing that the va rep has already made a decision, in less than two weeks. With no exams or anything... What does this mean... Is this normal? have i been denied? Is there a phone number i can call?? im freaking out. Here's what ebenefits show: Estimated Completion: 01/24/2017 - 03/04/2017 STATUS: Preparation For Decision The Veterans Service Representative has recommended a decision, and is preparing required documents detailing that decision. If more evidence is required, the claim will be sent back in the process for more information or evidence
  4. Two months and two days from the date I filed a Motion to Advance my husband's appeal Decision was made in his favor at the BVA. It was fairly short and did not contain any "history making" comments. It also did not give an effective date. Although an attorney at the BVA said it was P&T all it actually says is that he was granted TDIU. It was a wonderful Christmas Blessing but it would be nice to see a little greenbacks soon.
  5. I began a claim in August 2013, after going to the VAMC for the past 12 years from time to time for what they now call "anxiety and depression". I initially went to the VARO and they initiated a claim for "anxiety due to physical assault in basic training" and "back condition". Only on my second visit to the VARO did they provide me with Form 21-0781 for determining PTSD. The VAMC according to my medical records have never used the term "PTSD" in my file as of yet. I have since gone to the DAV for representation, thanks in part to the great information on this website. I gave them my buddy statements to submit on my behalf since there was no documentation of the assault at the time. I am concerned that as of today by file has been moved to the "Preparing for Decision" phase on eBenefits webpage. They estimate my claim to be complete between Jan 2014 - April 2014 - moving the window up one month from last week. That means my claim could be complete in less than six months total time. I know I should be happy that it's not taking two years to complete, but this is almost too fast, maybe? They did the C&P for my back in October already (and have military documentation of a back condition on active duty), and I was not happy with the results when I read my records. I was unprepared and had not talked to the DAV yet, and didn't realize they rate your range of motion and not whether bending over causes you pain or not. I have never done a C&P for PTSD or anxiety. Could they be using my medical records and buddy statements and not require a C&P? Or could that still happen? I'm a bit naive on this whole process. I didn't even know there was such a thing as SC disability unless you got hurt in combat. Any help, thoughts, suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
  6. Well, just about at the point where I was about to let go and fall into another one of my deep depressions and have another manic episode or so it would've seemed, I went online and signed onto ePeggy and, fully expecting to see the same thing I've seen for almost two years ("gathering evidence", a.k.a. "gathering dust") I saw something completely different: the status was "Preparation For Decision" and in my letter generator the letter available for me to print out and prove to people how much disability percentage and payment I receive monthly was not available online. This has peaked my curiosity quite a bit. Along with reading all of yall's posts about your similar situations paired with some expected guidance my local VA rep advised me on recently this all seems to be coming together rather appropritely. Quite odd though being as the VA has never really given me anything but a bottle full of pills that make me high as a kite and years worth of empty promises. Please, brothers and sisters in arms, I would love love love yall's input. Anxiously awaiting! God Bless!!!
  7. SOOOOOO.......I pretty much gave up on checking my ebenefits account for any movement on my claim status. Actually I called the 800 number for the VA trying to get some info on what was going on with my GI bill since they decided to move it from one office to another and didin't "know where it was" haha. Anyway, so I go through and to my surprise 2 things happened I never expected: They not only found my Education file but they put a rush on it and my back pay will be coming through next week, ANNNDD there was a note attached to my medical claim saying something along the lines of should be done this week! whoa. I do have a question I see a lot of you who are getting downloadable letters before the offical letter comes in the mail in "the brown envelope" haha. Whats the difference? I've never seen either and i'm curious and also when does the electronic one show up? the day that they complete the claim? Thanks in advance for any responses!
  8. LETS TRY THIS AGAIN! lesson learned click preview post not post new topic, someone should really change that. My question regarding the VA Claims link on the homepage has to do with the post from the vet/nurse/woman who works processing the claims. in that post she says that excessive information and adding new claims to the origial claim before its finished can delay the precess. but how about a new claim that is added to your claim AS its starting that isn't previously documented in your medical record but IS documented by the doctor the VA set you up with in the first place? I have a pretty lenghty claim and before I saw that dr i had 21 conditions to present to him that the VA representative found in my record ( I thought I was just getting rated for sleep apnea and my knee...apparently i'm broken.) anyawy the doc that day added tennis elbow(don't know the fancy technical term) and carpe tunnel along with a few others I can't remember. will these addtions throw a wrench into the process for me? It WAS a Dr that they sent me to...and as of last month my claim is on the "preparation for decision" phase. I don't live in the country at the moment since i'm off working as a contractor and VA appointments would be a huge HUGE pain to schedule. Opinions and/or insight welcome, go! Thanks for reading, dominipino
